This is the first extensive biography of the remarkable German mathematician, Peter Gustav Lejeune Dirichlet (1805-1859). Dirichlet, who is credited with being one of the first mathematicians to give the modern, formal definition of a function, made deep contributions to number theory, including creating the field of analytic number theory. He is also known for his contributions to the theory of Fourier series and other topics in mathematical analysis. This monograph includes personal information about his life and the lives of some of his notable associates and how their lives were affected by the political and social environment. Additionally, in alternating chapters, a mathematical guide to his publications and lectures is presented. This book will appeal not only to mathematicians but also to historians of mathematics and sciences, and readers interested in the cultural and intellectual history of the nineteenth century.
