French mathematician and teacher who notably studied under Charles Hermite and was the PhD advisor of Jacques Hadamard.
Under Hermite, he received his doctorate in 1874 for his thesis Propriétés des Intégrales des Équations Différentielle Linéaires à Coefficients Variables.
Tannery discovered a surface of the fourth order of which all the geodesic lines are algebraic. He was not an inventor, however, but essentially a critic and methodologist. His efforts were mainly directed to the study of the mathematical foundations and of the philosophical ideas implied in mathematical thinking.
He notably influenced Pierre Duhem, Paul Painlevé, Jules Drach, and Émile Borel to take up science.
He was the brother of the mathematician and historian of science Paul Tannery (1843-1904). He died on 11 December 1910, aged 62, in Paris.
