Belgian military man and mathematician known for his work on non-Euclidean mechanics, as he was the one who invented it. He worked thus alone on this topic until a French mathematician named Jules Hoüel showed interest in that field. Tilly also wrote on military science and history of mathematics.
In 1858, he became a teacher in mathematics at the regimental school. He began with studying geometry, particularly Euclid's fifth postulate and non-Euclidean geometry. He found similar results as Lobachevsky in 1860, but the Russian mathematician was already dead at that time.
He died in München, Germany, on 4 August 1906.
