Franz Mertens

Polish-Austrian mathematician- Franz Mertens (20 March 1840 â€“ 5 March 1927) (also Franciszek Mertens) was a Polish mathematician.
- He was born in Schroda in the Grand Duchy of Posen, Kingdom of Prussia (now Sroda Wielkopolska, Poland) and died in Vienna, Austria. The Mertens function M(x) is the sum function for the MĂ¶bius function, in the theory of arithmetic functions.
- The Mertens conjecture concerning its growth, conjecturing it bounded by x1/2, which would have implied the Riemann hypothesis, is now known to be false (Odlyzko and te Riele, 1985).
- The Meisselâ€“Mertens constant is analogous to the Eulerâ€“Mascheroni constant, but the harmonic series sum in its definition is only over the primes rather than over all integers and the logarithm is taken twice, not just once.
- Mertens's theorems are three 1874 results related to the density of prime numbers. Erwin SchrĂ¶dinger was taught calculus and algebra by Mertens.His memory is honoured by the Franciszek Mertens Scholarship granted to those outstanding pupils of foreign secondary schools who wish to study at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Jagiellonian University in KrakĂłw and were finalists of the national-level mathematics, or computer science olympiads, or they have participated in one of the following international olympiads: in mathematics (IMO), computer science (IOI), astronomy (IAO), physics (IPhO), linguistics (IOL), or they were participants of the European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO).
