Augustin-Louis Cauchy

French mathematician

Augustin-Louis Cauchy, in full Augustin-Louis, Baron Cauchy, (born August 21, 1789, Paris, France—died May 23, 1857, Sceaux), French mathematician who pioneered in analysis and the theory of substitution groups (groups whose elements are ordered sequences of a set of things). He was one of the greatest of modern mathematicians.

At the onset of the Reign of Terror (1793–94) during the French Revolution, Cauchy’s family fled from Paris to the village of Arcueil, where Cauchy first became acquainted with the mathematician Pierre-Simon Laplace and the chemist Claude-Louis Berthollet.
