Enrico Bombieri (born November 26, 1940) is an Italian mathematician, born in Milan.

Italy (Italia officially the Italian Republic, (Repubblica Italiana is located on the Italian Peninsula in Southern Europe, and on the two largest A mathematician is a person whose primary area of study and research is the field of Mathematics. Milan (Milano Milan (listen) is one of the largest cities in Italy, located in the plains of Lombardy. He is now at the Institute for Advanced Study. The Institute for Advanced Study, located in Princeton New Jersey, United States is a center for theoretical research He is known for work in number theory, algebraic geometry, and mathematical analysis. Number theory is the branch of Pure mathematics concerned with the properties of Numbers in general and Integers in particular as well as the wider classes Algebraic geometry is a branch of Mathematics which as the name suggests combines techniques of Abstract algebra, especially Commutative algebra, with Analysis has its beginnings in the rigorous formulation of Calculus. He was awarded a Fields Medal in 1974. The Fields Medal is a prize awarded to two three or four Mathematicians not over 40 years of age at each International Congress of the International Mathematical Year 1974 ( MCMLXXIV) was a Common year starting on Tuesday (link will display full calendar of the 1974 Gregorian calendar.
The Bombieri–Vinogradov theorem is one of the major applications of the large sieve method. In Mathematics, the Bombieri–Vinogradov theorem (sometimes simply called Bombieri's theorem) is a major result of Analytic number theory, obtained in In Mathematics, the large sieve is a method of Analytic number theory. It improves Dirichlet's theorem on prime numbers in arithmetic progressions, by showing that by averaging over the modulus over a range, the mean error is much less than can be proved in a given case. In Number theory, Dirichlet's theorem, also called the Dirichlet prime number theorem states that for any two positive Coprime Integers a and In Mathematics, a prime number (or a prime) is a Natural number which has exactly two distinct natural number Divisors 1 In Mathematics, an arithmetic progression or arithmetic sequence is a Sequence of Numbers such that the difference of any two successive members This result can sometimes substitute for the still-unproved generalized Riemann hypothesis. The Riemann hypothesis is one of the most important Conjectures in Mathematics.
Bombieri, accomplished also in the arts, explored for wild orchids and other plants as a hobby in the Alps when a young man.
