Richard Brauer (1901-1977) was one of the leading algebraists of this century. Although he contributed to a number of mathematical fields, Brauer devoted the major share of his efforts to the study of finite groups, a subject of considerable abstract interest and one that underlies many of the more recent advances in combinatorics and finite geometries.
A mathematician is usually judged by several criteria.Among these are his ability to introduce new conceptswhich clarify existing problems, and his ability to develop coherent theories. In his work Brauer showed that he was a master of these three activities.
