Sturm A biography of the Mathematican who worked on differential equations and created the form now call SturmLiouville equations. http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/Mathematicians/Sturm.html
Extractions: Sturm came from a Protestant family and, in order to learn German, he attended the local Lutheran church where sermons were preached in that language. When Sturm was sixteen years old his father died and he changed tack in his academic studies, leaving the humanities and taking up the study of mathematics. He was taught mathematics at Geneva Academy by Simon Lhuilier in 1821 and immediately Lhuilier recognised the mathematical genius in Sturm. However, Lhuilier was over seventy years of age and close to retiring at this time so it was his successor Jean-Jacques Schaub who inspired Sturm. Schaub did more than teach Sturm mathematics for he supported him financially at the Academy. Sturm's family had been left in considerable financial difficulties on the death of his father so the financial assistance allowed Sturm to continue with his education. Gergonne 's In Paris he was introduced into the scientific circles by the family. Sturm wrote to his friend Colladon (see [1]):-

A Matlab Differentiation Matrix Suite Functions for solving differential equations by the spectral collocation (a.k.a. pseudospectral) method. http://dip.sun.ac.za/~weideman/research/differ.html
Extractions: Important: If you got redirected here from my previous homepage at Oregon State University, please update your bookmarks accordingly, as that page will be terminated in the next few months. JACW This is a MATLAB software suite, created by JAC Weideman and SC Reddy, consisting of seventeen functions for solving differential equations by the spectral collocation (a.k.a. pseudospectral) method. It includes functions for computing differentiation matrices of arbitrary order corresponding to Chebyshev, Hermite, Laguerre, Fourier, and sinc interpolants. It also includes FFT-based routines for Fourier, Chebyshev and sinc differentiation. Auxiliary functions are included for incorporating boundary conditions, performing interpolation using barycentric formulas, and computing roots of orthogonal polynomials. In the accompanying paper it is demonstrated how to use the package for solving eigenvalue, boundary value, and initial value problems arising in the fields of special functions, quantum mechanics, nonlinear waves, and hydrodynamic stability. The paper has been published in ACM TOMS, Vol. 26, pp. 465519 (2000). (

He also attended courses by Arago Cauchy 's courses, it is clear that Cauchy must have had a strong influence on him. Liouville graduated in 1827 with de Prony and Poisson among his examiners. partial differential equations and the theory of heat. In 1831 Liouville was appointed to his first academic post, as assistant to Claude Mathieu In 1836 Liouville founded a mathematics journal . This journal, sometimes known as Journal de Liouville , did much for mathematics in France throughout the 19 th century. Liouville had already gained an international reputation with papers published in Crelle 's Journal but at the same time the quality of Crelle 's Journal made him aware of deficiencies in the avenues for mathematical publications which there were in France. Certainly he was unhappy with the style of the Paris Journals for he wrote in 1836:-

What follows is a collection of things that please me. I list them in no particular order, give a brief description of what they are about, and provide a contact point to access more details. 1. No More Same Old Calculus: Before I retired, Professor George Cain and I made a common observation : most students entering Georgia Tech have already had the calculus. Because they think they already know the calculus, they often fail to note that the college course expects a deeper understanding of the concepts. Or, the students are bored because their high school calculus was such a good course. Cain and I wanted to make the materials fresh and exciting. Our decision was to present the notions of calculus in a multidimensional setting at the outset. This would take more time than typical in a second year calculus course because we would constantly go back to re-look at the one dimensional setting from this multidimensional perspective. Where could we find a text? Can you guess 2. Asynchronous Studies in Undergraduate Partial Differential Equations:
