Riemann read the book in a week and then claimed to know it by heart. He then gradually worked his way up the academic profession, through a succession of poorly paid jobs, until he became a full professor in and gained, for the first time in his life, a measure of financial security.
Breselenz, near Dannenberg, Germany, 17 September ; d. Selasca, Italy, 20 July mathematics, mathematical physics. Bernhard Riemannas he was called, was the second of six children of a Protestant minister, Friedrich Bernhard Riemannand the former Charlotte Ebell.
The children received their elementary education from their father, who was later assisted by a local teacher.
Riemann showed remarkable skill in arithmetic at an early age. From Easter he attended the Lyceum in Hannover, where lie lived with his grandmother. He was a good student and keenly interested in mathematics beyond the level offered at the school.
In the spring term of Riemann went to Berlin University, where a host of students flocked around Jacobi, Dirichlet, and Steiner.
He became acquainted with Jacobi and Dirichlet, the latter exerting the greatest influence upon him. For three terms Riemann attended courses and seminars in physics, philosophy, and education. In November he submitted his thesis on complex function theory and Riemann surfaces Gesammelte mathematische Werke.
Riemann then prepared for his Habilitation as a Privatdozent, which took him two and a half years. At the end of he submitted his Habilitationsschrift on Fourier series Ibid. Both papers were posthumously published inand in he twentieth century the second became a great classic of mathematics.
Its reading on 10 June was one of the highlights in the history of mathematics: At that time Riemann also worked as an assistant, probably unpaid, to H.
His first course as a Privatdozent was on partial differential equations with applications to physics.

His courses in —, in which, he expounded his now famous theory of Abelian functions, were attended by C. Bjerknes, Dedekind, and Ernst Schering; the theory itself, one of the most notable masterworks of mathematics, was published in Ibid.
Meanwhilehe had published a paper on hypergeometric series Ibid. When Gauss died early inhis chair went to Dirichlet. Attempts to make Riemann an extraordinary professor failed; instead he received a salary of taler a year.
In he was appointed extraordinary professor at a salary of taler. In July he suffered an attack of pleuritis; in spite of periodic recoveries he was a dying man for the remaining four years of his life.
To cure his illness in a better climate, as was then customary. Riemann took a leave of absence and found financial support for a stay in Italy. The winter of — was spent on Sicily; in the spring he traveled through Italy as a tourist and a lover of fine art.
He stayed in northern Italy from August to October On 16 June he arrived at Selasca on Lake Maggiore. The day before his death he was lying under a fig tree with a view of the landscape and working on the great paper on natural philosophy that he left unfinished.Bernhard Riemann, in full Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann, (born September 17, , Breselenz, Hanover [Germany]—died July 20, , Selasca, Italy), German mathematician whose profound and novel approaches to the study of geometry laid the mathematical foundation .
