Edwin Hewitt


Edwin Hewitt

Edwin Hewitt (20 January 192021 June 1999) was an American mathematician known for his work in abstract harmonic analysis and for his discovery, in collaboration with Leonard Jimmie Savage, of the Hewitt-Savage zero-one law.

He received his Ph.D. in 1942 from Harvard University, and served on the faculty of mathematics at the University of Washington from 1954.

Hewitt wrote the 1975 English translation of A. A. Kirillov's 1972 Russian monograph "Elements of the Theory of Representations" (Елементы Теории Представлений).

Also, along with Kenneth A. Ross, Hewitt wrote the extensive "Abstract Harmonic Analysis" in 1963. This work comes in two volumes and is almost certain to be cited in anything written in functional analysis.
