Otto Hölder


German mathematician noted for many theorems including Hölder's inequality, the Jordan–Hölder theorem, Hölder's theorem, and the Hölder condition (or Hölder continuity).

Hölder first studied at the Polytechnikum (which today is the University of Stuttgart) and then in 1877 went to Berlin where he was a student of Leopold Kronecker, Karl Weierstraß, and Ernst Kummer.

In 1877, he entered the University of Berlin and took his doctorate from the University of Tübingen in 1882. He worked at the University of Leipzig from 1899 until his retirement. He died on 29 August 1937 at age 78 in Leipzig, Germany.
