Encyclopedia > Harald Bohr

Harald Bohr (22 April 188722 January 1951) was a Danish mathematician, and younger brother of the physicist Niels Bohr. Many friends remarked that the two men were unusually close, even for brothers. Early in the lives of the brothers, Harald was thought to be more likely to be successful.

Niels Bohr Niels Henrik David Bohr (October 7, 1885 – November 18, 1962) was a Danish physicist who made essential contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum mechanics. ...

Harald Bohr worked in mathematical analysis, founding the field of almost periodic functions, and worked with the Cambridge mathematician G. H. Hardy. Bohr was also an excellent soccer player; he won a silver medal at the 1908 Summer Olympics with the Danish national football team. Analysis is the generic name given to any branch of mathematics which depends upon the concepts of limits and convergence, and studies closely related topics such as continuity, integration, differentiability and transcendental functions. ... In mathematics, almost periodicity is a property of dynamical systems that appear to retrace their paths through phase space, but not exactly. ... REDIRECT [1] ... G. H.

In mathematical analysis, the Bohr_Mollerup theorem, named after the Danish mathematicians Harald Bohr and Johannes Mollerup, who proved it, characterizes the gamma function, defined for x > 0 by as the only function f on the interval x > 0 that simultaneously has the three properties and and is a convex function. ... In mathematics, the Bohr compactification of a topological group G is a compact Hausdorff topological group H that may be canonically associated to G. Its importance lies in the reduction of the theory of uniformly almost periodic functions on G to the theory of continuous functions on H. The concept...

Niels Henrik David Bohr (2671 words)
Bohr was taught mathematics at university by Thorvald Thiele.
Bohr applied to the Carlsberg Foundation for a travel grant in May 1911 and, after the award was made, went to England in September 1911 to study with Sir J J Thomson at Cambridge.
Bohr's other major contributions, in addition to quantum theory, include his theoretical description of the periodic table of elements around 1920, his theory of the atomic nucleus being a compound structure in 1936, and his understanding of uranium fission in terms of the isotope 235 in 1939.
