Peter Gustav Lejeune Dirichlet was a German mathematician known for his invaluable contributions to number theory. He is credited with the creation of the field of analytic number theory and was one of the earliest mathematicians to give the modern formal definition of a function. He also made noteworthy contributions to the fields of analysis and mechanics, but number theory remained his greatest interest. His research in number theory led to the development of several theorems and principles, many of which were later named after him. Dirichlet was born with an innate love for mathematics. In spite of hailing from a family of modest means, he received good education and convinced his parents to send him to the Jesuit Gymnasium in Cologne where he had the good fortune of being tutored by the physicist and mathematician, Georg Simon Ohm, who groomed the young man and encouraged his research. However, he faced some problems when he decided to further his education as there was little opportunity in his home country to study higher mathematics. He moved to France for his higher education and returned home in order to embark on a career. Over the course of his illustrious career, not only did he contribute greatly to the field of mathematics, but also mentored several brilliant students who went on to become famous mathematicians in their own rights
