## 4-65. Salvatore Pincherle

Born in the city of Trieste, Salvatore Pincherle (1853–1936) attended
the *Lycée impérial* in Marseilles (later renamed Lycée Thiers). He
enrolled at the *Scuola normale superiore* in Pisa in 1870, where he heard
lectures by Enrico Betti. Pincherle obtained the *laurea* in
1874, as well as his habilitation. He accepted a position
in Pavia teaching at the *Regio ginnasio liceale* (later renamed Liceo
Foscolo), which he interrupted in 1877–1878 to study in Berlin, where
he heard lectures by Kummer, Kronecker and Weierstrass. In 1880 he
obtained a position at the University of Palermo in algebraic analysis
and analytic geometry, but was then offered a chair at the University
of Bologna, which he accepted. He remained at Bologna until his
retirement in 1928.

Pincherle contributed to the foundations of functional analysis, and
in 1887 was elected to the *Reale Accademia dei Lincei.* On Pincherle’s
life, work and career, see his *Opere Scelte*
(Unione matematica italiana, 1954a, b),
Tricomi (1974),
Bottazzini (2012)
and the entry on
MacTutor.
