Alfred Tauber (November 5, 1866 – July 26, 1942) was an Austrian mathematician who was born in Bratislava, then in Kingdom of Hungary and called Pozsony, and was murdered in the Theresienstadt concentration camp.[1] In 1897 he proved a corrected converse of Abel's theorem. G.H. Hardy and J.E. Littlewood coined the term Tauberian to describe converse theorems like that proved by Tauber.
