About Paul Montel

  • Paul Antoine Aristide Montel (29 April 1876 – 22 January 1975) was a French mathematician.
  • He was born in Nice, France and died in Paris, France.
  • He researched mostly on holomorphic functions in complex analysis. Montel was a student of Émile Borel at the Sorbonne.
  • Henri Cartan, Jean DieudonnĂ© and Miron Nicolescu were among his students. Montel's most important contribution to mathematics was the introduction and systematic development of the notion of normal family. This very influential book also contains the first exposition in the book form of the results of Pierre Fatou and Gaston Julia on holomorphic dynamics.
