Levi-Civita,Tullio

Abstract : Tullio Levi-Civita (29 March 1873 to 29 December 1941) has been an Italian mathematician and mathematical physicist, known above all for his work on the absolute differential calculus. Levi-Civita came from a rigorous and creative school of mathematical physicists and was a pupil of Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro. LeviCivita’s work included outstanding results in pure and applied mathematics and in celestial and analytic mechanics but also celebrated textbooks. These last, even those written in Italian, have influenced mathematical physicists all over the world.Levi-Civita has perfected some conceptual tools of great importance in modern science, particularly in general relativity, number theory, and continuum mechanics.
