About Giulio Ascoli

  • Giulio Ascoli (20 January 1843, Trieste – 12 July 1896, Milan) was a Jewish-Italian mathematician.
  • He was a student of the Scuola Normale di Pisa, where he graduated in 1868. In 1872 he became Professor of Algebra and Calculus of the Politecnico di Milano University.
  • From 1879 he was professor of mathematics at the Reale Istituto Tecnico Superiore, where, in 1901, was affixed a plaque that remembers him. He was also a corresponding member of Istituto Lombardo. He made contributions to the theory of functions of a real variable and to Fourier series.
  • For example, Ascoli introduced equicontinuity in 1884, a topic regarded as one of the fundamental concepts in the theory of real functions.
  • In 1889, Italian mathematician Cesare ArzelĂ  generalized Ascoli's Theorem into the Arzelà–Ascoli theorem, a practical sequential compactness criterion of functions.
