* 1 August 1881, † 15 February 1940

Otto Toeplitz was born on 1 August 1881 in Breslau, Germany (now Wrocław, Poland). Toeplitz worked on infinite linear and quadratic forms. In the 1930’s he developed a general theory of infinite dimensional spaces and criticised Banach’s work as being too abstract.
