  Schwartz   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Schwartz was tireless in his calls for justice, and organised a presentation of the young man's thesis in his absence.
Schwartz's development of the theory of distributions put methods of this type onto a sound basis, and greatly extended their range of application, providing powerful tools for applications in numerous areas.
Schwartz's idea (in 1947) was to give a unified interpretation of all the generalized functions that had infiltrated analysis as (continuous) linear functionals on the space Cç of infinitely differentiable functions vanishing outside compact sets.

Laurent Schwartz, who has died aged 87, was the ideal of the French intellectual.
In 1952, Schwartz moved from Nancy to the Sorbonne, and in 1958 became a professor at the Ecole Polytechnique (EP).
Schwartz campaigned tirelessly for an investigation, and organised a committee to look into the death; in 1960, he signed the Declaration des 121 [French intellectuals], with Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, which solemnly declared the moral right of youth to rebel against the Algerian War.

With the armistice of 1940, Schwartz found himself writing his mathematics thesis in Clermont-Ferrand, where the Germans regarded the university as their particular enemy (it had taken refuge there when Strasbourg was annexed to Germany).
In 1957, Schwartz became involved in the affaire Audin, the case of the 25-year-old communist and teacher of mathematics in Algiers, who disappeared after being arrested by French paratroopers.
In 1960, Schwartz was one of those who signed the Manifeste des 121, encouraging young men to refuse to serve in the French army at war in Algeria.

Obituary of Laurent Schwartz; French mathematician and opponent of colonialism.(News)(Obituary)
PROFESSOR LAURENT SCHWARTZ, who has died aged 87, won the Fields Medal - the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for mathematicians - for his theory of distributions, a broadening of differential and integral calculus; he was also a keen political activist.
Schwartz's academic contribution was to put on a solid mathematical basis the calculus which had been proposed by the British physicists Oliver Heaviside and Paul Dirac for specific applications in physics.

 Read This: A Mathematician Grappling with His Century
Except for a brief discussion on Schwartz's most important mathematical contribution, the concept of distributions, which generalized the notion of function and allowed for a considerable broadening of calculus, most of the math in this book is written from a historical perspective and largely accessible to non-mathematical readers.
Schwartz states that he dedicated the rest of his life to promoting justice, organizing support for national liberation movements, and analyzing the "appropriate" response to the burning social questions of the day.
Schwartz summarizes that the work of the Committee served two important functions: securing the release of the imprisoned, and showing the rest of the world that mathematicians can be absorbed by issues beyond their research.

Schwartz had received the medal at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Harvard on 30 August 1950 for his work on the theory of distributions.
Schwartz had made a big breakthrough in the understanding of partial differential equations which he saw should be completely recast in the context of distribution theory.
Lions was one of several students who Schwartz directed to take this new approach and his doctoral thesis developed what has become the standard variational theory of linear elliptic and evolution equations.

I have eaten at Schwartz about twice (I waited about 10 years after moving to the city until going there) and yes, it's great smoked meat and no, the service is not that bad.
So it's a tossup, go to Schwartz if you want to say you ate there or go to The Main if you don't want to wait too long.

By Claude Roy, Eugene Ionesco, Guenter Grass, Heinrich Boell, Ignazio Silone, Jean Daniel, Jean-Marie Domenach, Jean-Paul Sartre, Laurent Schwartz, Pierre Emmanuel, Saul Bellow, Stephen Spender
Last August, thirteen Polish intellectuals addressed an appeal to seventeen Western intellectuals asking them to express their solidarity with Polish workers who were being victimized by the government because of their participation in the strikes and demonstrations of June 1976.
We accordingly also call upon the labor organizations and the trade unions in our own countries which so often have stood up for the rights and dignity of their workers, to intervene on behalf of the Polish workers who were imprisoned and persecuted for having demonstrated against the aggravation of their living conditions.
