A GREAT 
MATHEMATICIAN
NEILS HENRIK ABEL 
(5 AUG 1802 – 6 APRIL 1829)
HIS LIFE 
• He was born in a poor family in Nedstrand, 
Norway in 5 th august 1802 
• He was the second child of Soren Georg Abel 
and Anne Marie Simonson 
• In 1815, at the age of 13 Neils Abel entered 
Cathredal school.
•In 1818, his Mathematics teacher, Bernt 
Michael Holmboe noticed Neils Abel’s talents 
in mathematics and encouraged him to study 
the subject to an advanced level 
• Bernt Michael Holmboe supported Neils 
Abel with a scholarship to remain at the school 
and raised money from his friends to enable 
him to study at the Royal Fredrick University
• Neils Abel graduated in1822. his 
[performance was average, except in 
Mathematics which was exceptionally high. 
• In the mid of 1823, Professor Rasmussen 
gave Abel a gift of 100 speciedaler, so could 
travel to Copenhagen and visit Ferdinand 
Degan and other Mathematicians there
• Abel got a government scholarship inorder to 
visit top Mathematicians in Germany and 
France 
• In 1823, Abel published his first article in 
Magazin for Naturvidenskaberne, Norway’s 
first scientific journal 
• Abel wrote a paper in French which is, “a 
general representation of the possibility to 
integrate all differential formulas”
• After studying German and French, Abel 
published his first notable work in 1824, 
“Memoir on algebraic equations in which the 
impossibility of solving the general equation of 
the fifth degree is proven” 
• Abel was contracted with tuberculosis and died 
on the 6th of April 1829 
• Just two days after his death August Crelle send 
a letter to Abel that he has been appointed as a 
Professor at the University of Berlin, but it 
came too late
HIS CONTRIBUTIONS 
• Neils most famous single result is the first 
complete proof demonstrating the impossibility 
of solving the general quintic equation in 
radicals. This equation was one of the 
outstanding open problems of his days, and had 
been unresolved for 250 years 
• Neils was an innovator in the field of elliptic 
function
•Neils Abel did some work on Fermat’s last 
theorem 
•He showed that there is no general algebraic 
solution for the roots of a quintic equation or any 
genaral polynomial equation of degree greater 
than four in terms of explicit algebraic 
operations
• To do this he invented an extremely important 
branch of Mathematics known as Group 
Theory, which is invaluable not only in many 
areas of mathematics but for much of Physics as 
well 
•As a 16 year old Abel gave a proof of Binomial 
Theorem valid for all numbers, extending 
Euler’s result which had held for rationals.
• Abel wrote a fundamental work on the theory 
of elliptic integrals, containing the foundation 
of the theory of elliptic function
Abel is known for his… 
• Abel’s Binomial theorem 
• Abelian category 
• Abelian variety 
• Abelian variety of CM-type 
• Abel equation 
• Abel equation of the first kind 
• Abelian extension
•Abel function 
•Abelian group 
•Abel’s identity 
•Abel’s inequality 
•Abel’s irreducibility theorem 
• Abel- Jacobi map 
•Abel- Plana formula 
•Abel- Ruffini theorem 
•Abelian means
•Abel’s summation formula 
•Abelian and Tauberian theorems 
• Abel’s test 
• Abel’s theorem 
• Abel transform 
• Abel transformation 
• Abelian variety 
• Dual Abelian variety
