Marek Kuczma was once born in 1935 in Katowice, Poland, and died there in 1991.

After completing highschool in his domestic city, he studied on the Jagiellonian college in Kraków. He defended his doctoral dissertation less than the supervision of Stanislaw Golab. within the yr of his habilitation, in 1963, he acquired a place on the Katowice department of the Jagiellonian college (now collage of Silesia, Katowice), and labored there until his death.

Besides his a number of administrative positions and his extraordinary instructing task, he entire first-class and wealthy medical paintings publishing 3 monographs and one hundred eighty medical papers.

He is taken into account to be the founding father of the distinguished Polish institution of practical equations and inequalities.

"The moment half the name of this e-book describes its contents competently. most likely even the main dedicated expert shouldn't have concept that approximately three hundred pages will be written near to the Cauchy equation (and on a few heavily comparable equations and inequalities). And the e-book is in no way chatty, and doesn't even declare completeness. half I lists the mandatory initial wisdom in set and degree thought, topology and algebra. half II provides info on options of the Cauchy equation and of the Jensen inequality [...], specifically on non-stop convex features, Hamel bases, on inequalities following from the Jensen inequality [...]. half III bargains with comparable equations and inequalities (in specific, Pexider, Hosszú, and conditional equations, derivations, convex features of upper order, subadditive capabilities and balance theorems). It concludes with an day trip into the sector of extensions of homomorphisms in general." (Janos Aczel, Mathematical Reviews)

"This ebook is a true vacation for the entire mathematicians independently in their strict speciality. you can still think what deliciousness represents this publication for sensible equationists." (B. Crstici, Zentralblatt für Mathematik)
