Stefan Banach Google Doodle | Google Doodle Celebrates the Life and legacy of Polish Mathematician Stefan Banach.
Stefan Banach was an original member of The Lviv School of Mathematics and one of the most influential Mathematicians of the 20th century. Here’s everything you need to know about Banach.
Banach was an original Member of the Lwow School of Mathematics and the founder of modern functional analysis. Stefan Banach was born in Krakow, Poland- and was always interested in solving puzzles with his friend Witold Wilkosz, who also became a famous mathematician.
Because of his poor eyesight, Banach was deemed unfit for military service and taught in local schools during world war I. After meeting Hugo Steinhaus, One of the most famous mathematicians of the time, the pair began working together and in April 1919 formally founded a society together, which became the Polish Mathematical Society.

With the help of Steinhaus and other academics, Banach founded modern functional analysis, an entirely new branch of mathematics. Many concepts such as Banach spaces, Banach algebra, and Bench-Steinhaus theorem are named after him.
Functional analysis is a branch of mathematics whose core consists of the study of vector spaces that have some form of topological vector spaces, measure theory, integration, set theory, orthogonal series, and functional analysis, which are still studied and used today.
Today’s doodles are performed by Stefan Banach- an original member of the Lwow School of Mathematics and the founder of modern functional analysis.
