Abstract:

This article surveys life and work of the Ukrainian mathematician Voronoi (1868--1908). In his short life he made important contributions to the theory of algebraic numbers, analytic number theory, and the geometry of numbers. His ideas influenced much of the research in modern number theory till the present day.
