Karl Menger

Karl Menger (Jan. 13 1902 - Oct. 5 1985) was a mathematician of great scope and depth.

He did work on Algebras, Curve and Dimension Theory, and Geometries.



His most famous popular contribution was the Menger Sponge (mistakenly known as Sierpinski's Sponge), a three dimensional version of Sierpinski's Carpet. It is also related to the Cantor Set and the Sierpinski Square[?].
