Congratulations on this excellent venture… what a great idea!

I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lazarus Immanuel Fuchs (5 May 1833 – 26 April 1902) was a Jewish-German[1] mathematician who contributed important research in the field of linear differential equations.[2] He was born in Moschin (Mosina) (located in Grand Duchy of Posen) and died in Berlin, Germany. He was buried in Schöneberg in the St. Matthew's Cemetery. His grave in section H is preserved and listed as a grave of honour of the State of Berlin.

He is the eponym of Fuchsian groups and functions, and the Picard–Fuchs equation. A singular point a of a linear differential equation

is called Fuchsian if p and q are meromorphic around the point a, and have poles of orders at most 1 and 2, respectively. According to a theorem of Fuchs, this condition is necessary and sufficient for the regularity of the singular point, that is, to ensure the existence of two linearly independent solutions of the form

where the exponents can be determined from the equation. In the case when is an integer this formula has to be modified.

Another well-known result of Fuchs is the Fuchs's conditions, the necessary and sufficient conditions for the non-linear differential equation of the form

to be free of movable singularities.

Lazarus Fuchs was the father of Richard Fuchs, a German mathematician.
