This biography illuminates the life of Ennio De Giorgi, a mathematical genius in parallel with John Nash, the Nobel Prize Winner and protagonist of A Beautiful Mind. Beginning with his childhood and early years of research, into his solution of the 19th problem of Hilbert and his professorship, this book pushes beyond De Giorgi's rich contributions to the mathematics community, to present his work in human rights, including involvement in the fight for Leonid Plyushch's freedom and the defense of dissident Uruguayan mathematician José Luis Massera. Considered by many to be the greatest Italian analyst of the twentieth century, De Giorgi is described in this volume in full through documents and direct interviews with friends, family, colleagues, and former students.

This biography illuminates the life of Ennio De Giorgi, a mathematical genius in parallel with John Nash, the Nobel Prize Winner and protagonist of A Beautiful Mind. Beginning with his childhood and early years of research and teaching, into his continued professorship and solution of the 19th problem of Hilbert, this book pushes beyond De Giorgi's rich contributions to the mathematics community, to present his work in human rights, including involvement in the fight for Leonid Plyushch's freedom and the defense of dissident Uruguayan mathematician José Luis Massera. Considered by many to be the greatest Italian analyst of the twentieth century, this volume illustrates De Giorgi in full through documents from and direct interviews with friends, family, and colleagues.
