Oscar Schlömilch

Oscar (Oskar) Xavier Schlömilch (1823–1901) was a German mathematician, born in Weimar, working in mathematical analysis. He took a doctorate at the University of Jena in 1842, and became a professor at Dresden Polytechnic in 1849.

He is now known as the eponym of the Schlömilch function, a kind of Bessel function. He was also an important textbook writer, and editor of the journal Zeitschrift für Mathematik und Physik, of which he was a founder in 1856.

He published in 1868 for the first time the dissection paradox, earlier invented by Sam Loyd.
