Ernst Leonard Lindelöf

Ernst Lindelöf.

Ernst Leonard Lindelöf, (7 March 1870, Helsinki – 4 June 1946, Helsinki) was a Finnish topologist after whom Lindelöf spaces are named. He was the son of Lorenz Leonard Lindelöf and brother of the philologist Uno Lorenz Lindelöf.

Lindelöf studied at the University of Helsinki, where he completed his Ph.D. in 1893, became a docent in 1895 and professor of Mathematics in 1903. He was a member of the Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters.

In addition to working on mathematical topics as diverse as differential equations (the Picard–Lindelöf theorem is named after him) and the gamma function, Lindelöf promoted the study of the history of Finnish mathematics.
