Axel Thue (Norwegian: [tʉː]; 19 February 1863 – 7 March 1922), was a Norwegian mathematician, known for highly original work in diophantine approximation, and combinatorics.
Work
Thue published his first important paper in 1909.^{[1]}
He stated in 1914 the so-called word problem for semigroups or Thue problem, closely related to the halting problem.^{[2]}
His only known PhD student was Thoralf Skolem.
The esoteric programming language Thue is named after him.
