Biography

Ascher Otto Wagner (12 Oct 1930, Vienna – 27 May 2000, London) was an Austrian and British mathematician, specializing in the theory of finite groups and finite projective planes. He is known for the Dembowski–Wagner theorem [de].

Ascher Wagner received his Ph.D. in 1958 with dissertation Some Problems on Projective Planes and Related Topics in the Theory of Algebraic Operations supervised by Kurt Hirsch. Wagner was a faculty member at the University of London and then at the University of Birmingham.

In 1958 he married Gillian Mary Jaidka (1929–1993) in Hampstead, London.
