About Victor Puiseux

  • Victor Alexandre Puiseux (French: [p?izø]; 16 April 1820 – 9 September 1883) was a French mathematician and astronomer.
  • Puiseux series are named after him, as is in part the Bertrand–Diquet–Puiseux theorem.
  • His work on algebraic functions and uniformization makes him a direct precursor of Bernhard Riemann, for what concerns the latter's work on this subject and his introduction of Riemann surfaces.
  • He was also an accomplished amateur mountaineer.
  • A peak in the French alps, which he climbed in 1848, is named after him. A species of Israeli gecko, Ptyodactylus puiseuxi, is named in his honor.
