2011 (English)In: Proceedings of the 3rd International Symposium on Banach and Function: Kitakyushu, Japan, 14-17 September 2009 / [ed] Mikio Kato; Lech Maligranda; Tomonari Suzuki, Yokohama: Yokohama Publishers, 2011, 99-171 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The life and work of the Japanese mathematician Hidegoro Nakano (1909-1974) is presented. He graduated from the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science, Imperial Univer¬sity of Tokyo in 1933 and from 1935 he was a professor at National First High School. In 1936 he got his doctor degree of science and in 1942 he became an assistant professor at the Imperial University of Tokyo. From 1952 he continued to be a professor in Hokkaido University. From 1960 he was a guest professor at the Queen’s University and from 1961 to 1974 he worked at Wayne University in Detroit, USA. He passed away there in 1974. This biography includes his personal data, scientific achievements, a list of books and the list of published papers. He is mostly remembered in mathematics for Nakano spaces and modular spaces but also sev¬eral of his results are known in the theory of vector lattices (Riesz spaces) and the operator theory in Hilbert spaces. He was the first one who introduced the notion of a modular.
