Shatunovskii, Samuil Osipovich


Born Mar. 12 (25), 1859, in the village of Velikaia Znamenka; died Mar. 27, 1929, in Odessa. Russian mathematician.

Shatunovskii was a professor at Novorossiia University in Odessa. His principal works deal with algebra, the axiomatics of linear magnitude and area, the substantiation of the concept of the volume of a polyhedron without the use of the concept of limit, and the structure of algebra. Particularly noteworthy is Shatunovskii’s work on Galois theory as the study of congruences with respect to functional moduli, without the use of the law of the excluded middle, as applied to infinite sets.
