Pafnuty Lvovich Chebyshev (Russian:

May 4] 1821 December 8 [O.S. November 26] 1894)

[1]

was a

Russian mathematician. His name can be alternatively

transliterated as Chebychev, Chebysheff, Chebyshov,

Tchebychev or Tchebycheff, or Tschebyschev or Tschebyscheff

(the latter two pairs are French and German transcriptions).

One of nine children, Chebyshev was born in the central

Russian village of Akatovo near Borovsk, to Agrafena

Ivanova Pozniakova and Lev Pavlovich Chebyshev. His

father had fought as an officer against Napoleon Bonaparte's

invading army.

Chebyshev was originally home schooled by his mother and

his cousin, Avdotia Kvintillianova Soukhareva. He learned

French early in life, which later helped him communicate

with other mathematicians. A stunted leg prevented him from

playing with other children, leading him to concentrate on his

studies instead.

Chebyshev studied at the college level at Moscow University,

where he earned his bachelor's degree in 1841. At Moscow

University, Chebyshev was a graduate student of Nikolai

Brashman.

After Chebyshev became a professor of mathematics in Moscow himself, his two most illustrious graduate

students were Andrei Andreyevich Markov (the elder) and Aleksandr Lyapunov.

Pafnuty Chebyshev on a stamp of the

Soviet Union in 1946.

Later he moved to St. Petersburg, where he founded one of the most important schools of mathematics in

Russia, and there is today a research institute in mathematics called the Chebyshev Laboratory in that city.

Chebyshev is known for his work in the fields of probability, statistics, mechanics, and number theory. The

Chebyshev inequality states that if is a random variable with standard deviation , then the probability that

the outcome of is no less than away from its mean is no more than :

The Chebyshev inequality is used to prove the Weak Law of Large Numbers.

The BertrandChebyshev theorem (1845|1850) states that for any , there exists a prime number such

that . This is a consequence of the Chebyshev inequalities for the number of prime

numbers less than , which state that is of the order of . A more precise form is given by the

celebrated prime number theorem: the quotient of the two expressions approaches 1.0 as tends to infinity.

Chebyshev is also known for the Chebyshev polynomials and the Chebyshev bias the difference between the

number of primes that are 3 (modulo 4) and 1 (modulo 4).

Chebyshev is considered to be a founding father of Russian

mathematics. Among his well-known students were the prolific

mathematicians Dmitry Grave, Aleksandr Korkin, Aleksandr Lyapunov,

and Andrei Markov. According to the Mathematics Genealogy Project,

Chebyshev has 7,483 mathematical "descendants" as of 2010.

The lunar crater Chebyshev and the asteroid 2010 Chebyshev were

named in his honour.
