  Augustin Louis Cauchy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1833 the deposed king Charles X of France summoned Cauchy to be tutor to his grandson, the duke of Bordeaux, an appointment which enabled Cauchy to travel and thereby become acquainted with the favourable impression which his investigations had made.
Returning to Paris in 1838, Cauchy refused a proffered chair at the Collège de France, but in 1848, the oath having been suspended, he resumed his post at the École Polytechnique, and when the oath was reinstituted after the coup d'état of 1851, Cauchy and François Arago were exempted from it.
Cauchy had two brothers: Alexandre Laurent Cauchy (1792–1857), who became a president of a division of the court of appeal in 1847, and a judge of the court of cassation in 1849; and Eugène François Cauchy (1802–1877), a publicist who also wrote several mathematical works.

In physics, stress is the internal distribution of forces within a body that balance and react the loads applied to it.
Augustin Louis Cauchy enunciated the principle that, within a body, the forces that an enclosed volume imposes on the remainder of the material must be in equilibrium with the forces upon it from the rest of the body.
Cauchy was the first to demonstrate that it is always possible to transform the co-ordinates on the body into a set in which the shear stress vanishes.

Cauchy’s discoveries in calculus, differential equations, mathematical physics, and complex analysis were all very significant to the development of many fields of mathematics.
Cauchy's work on complex numbers and the complex plane helped open up many doors for more advanced mathematical discoveries.
However, Cauchy did not come to realize that the complex numbers did not follow the same properties that the real numbers possess, and this is where the combined proof of Fermat's Last Theorem by Lamé and Cauchy failed.

Even though this criterion for convergence bears Cauchy's name, he was not the first mathematician to derive this condition.
It is only after these definitions for convergent and divergent series that Cauchy was able to state his criterion for convergence.
What Cauchy did do was present examples where his criterion holds true.
