According to  Google cache, Josef Hoëne "adopted the name Wronski around 1810 just after he married". Does anyone know why? Was it his wive's surname? Also, good job on this entry, I really enjoyed it. M123 03:26, 24 Aug 2003 (UTC)
- I seem to remember reading something a while ago that claimed Wronski was of Jewish origin and was possibly an attempt to emphasize his Jewish heritage, but I'm unable to verify this or find where I read that, so haven't added it to the article. I'll see if I can find anything on this at my university library. --Delirium 04:11, Aug 25, 2003 (UTC)
Is this stolen from http://www-gap.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/Mathematicians/Wronski.html ?
They are identical, in any case.
- No, I wrote this from scratch quite some time ago. --Delirium 03:14, Jun 8, 2005 (UTC)
What about when he started that religion and ripped off a bunch of people? Why isn't that in there? I heard that from a math professor at Emory.
If this is true, can you please provide a source? --DM
