Aldo Andreotti (15 March 1924 – 21 February 1980) was an Italian mathematician who worked on algebraic geometry, on the theory of functions of several complex variables and on partial differential operators. Notably he proved the Andreotti–Frankel theorem, the Andreotti–Grauert theorem, the Andreotti–Vesentini theorem and introduced, jointly with François Norguet, the Andreotti–Norguet integral representation for functions of several complex variables.

Andreotti was a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study in 1951 and again from 1957 through 1959.[1]

Selected publications[edit]

Aldo Andreotti published 100 scientific works, including papers, books and lecture notes: many of them, except all his books but (Andreotti & Nacinovich 1980), are collected in his "Selecta" (Andreotti 1982, 1992, 1994, 1999). In his "Selecta" are also included three unpublished sets of lecture notes,[2] the first one prepared by Philippe Artzner from a course on the theory of analytic functions of several complex variables held by Andreotti during winter 1961 at the University of Strasbourg,[3] the second and third ones taken from two lectures held by Francesco Gherardelli at the "Seminario di Geometria"[4] of the Scuola Normale Superiore during the years 1971–1972 and 1971–1972 respectively, on topics concerning his joint work with Andreotti:[5] despite their nature of unpublished works, Vesentini (1992, p. 5) states that they have brought significant contributions to research.[6]
