Does anyone know about Prof. Abdul Aziz on whose name Aziz's theorem is named?

Aziz's theorem is a theorem about the location of zeros of polynomials.

  • $\begingroup$ @Nick, I don't think this is right. This is another Abdul Aziz from Kashmir (in South Asia). vidwan.inflibnet.ac.in/profile/22728 who seems to fit this theorem. He lists his expertise as "zeros of polynomials". $\endgroup$

As per the obituaries, the person behind Aziz's theorem is Prof. Aziz ul Azeem. He was a professor of mathematics at the University of Kashmir (located in South Asia). This is not another well known mathematics professor from Howard University, Abdul-Aziz Yakubu, (the name is quite similar). From the obituary of Prof. Azeem News link

“Prof Aziz-ul-Azeem was a distinguished mathematician who contributed significantly to the growth and development of the university. His contributions will continue to serve as a guiding force for young scholars to draw inspiration from,” Prof Talat said. Prof Aziz-ul-Azeem was globally known for ‘Aziz Theorem’ while leading several path-breaking research projects in mathematics.


Now that Professor Aziz is no more, I have written an obituary, a delayed one.

This obituary has appeared in several dailies.
