About Pál Turán



Turán was born into a Jewish family in Budapest on 18 August 1910.[ He received a teaching degree at the University of Budapest in 1933 and the Ph.D. degree under Lipót Fejér in 1935.[ As a Jew,, he fell victim to numerus clausus, he could not get a university job for several years. He was sent to labour service at various times from 1940 to 1944. He is said to have been recognized and perhaps protected by a fascist guard, who, as a mathematics student, had admired Turán's work. He became associate professor at the University of Budapest in 1945 and full professor in 1949. He married mathematician Vera Sós in 1952 and they had two children. He died in Budapest on 26 September 1976 of leukemia.
