Edmond Nicolas Laguerre (April 9, 1834, BarleDuc – August 14, 1886, BarleDuc) was a French mathematician, a member of the Académie française (1885). His main works were in the areas of geometry and complex analysis. He also investigated orthogonal polynomials (see Laguerre polynomials). Laguerre's method is a rootfinding algorithm tailored to polynomials, named after him. Works * (French) Oeuvres de Laguerre publ. sous les auspices de l'Académie des sciences par MM.
