Paul Vincensini

Paul Félix Vincensini (30 April 1896, Bastia – 9 August 1978, La Ciotat)[1][2] was a French mathematician.

In 1927, he wrote his dissertation Sur trois types de congruences rectilignes at the University of Toulouse.[3][4][5] In 1945, working as a Professor at the University of Besançon, he was awarded the Charles Dupin Prize of the French Academy of Sciences, for his work in higher geometry.[6] In 1949, he got the Prix de la Pensée Française. In the same year, he went to Marseille University. He retired in 1967, but still accepted presidency of a symposium of the Florence Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematical Sciences in 1978.[2]
