Inwith Edwin Klebshe discovered the organism that causes diphtheria. His demonstration that some animals are immune to diphtheria was basic to Emil von Behring's work in developing antitoxins. With Paul Frosch he found that foot-and-mouth disease is caused by a virus the first time a virus was found to be the agent of an animal disease and developed a serum against it Friedrich August Kekule orig.
His mother was a descendant of Martin Luther. His family had wanted him study law and indeed he started to study this topic. However he soon discovered that it was not a subject that gave him satisfaction and in the middle of his first year of study he decided to follow him own preferences rather than those of his family.
He therefore took up the study of mathematics, astronomy and physics.
Although an astronomer, Mollweide is well known for a number of mathematical discoveries in particular the Mollweide trigonometric relations he discovered in and the Mollweide map projection which preserves angles and so is a conformal projection. In fact while he was writing this thesis there was an attempt to draft him into the Prussian army.
He avoided the army and completed his Habilitation thesis on Trigonometrical equations. Indeed he was appointed to the chair of astronomy and higher mechanics at the University of Leipzig in His initial appointment was as Extraordinary Professor and it was an appointment which came early in his career.
It would appear that he was not a particularly good lecturer and this made his life difficult since he did not attract fee paying students to his lectures. He was forced to advertise his lecture courses as being free of charge before students thought his courses worth taking. He was offered a post as an astronomer in Greifswald in and then a post as a mathematician at Dorpat in He refused both, partly through his belief in the high quality of Leipzig University, partly through his loyalty to Saxony.

However it was not to be and another mathematician was preferred for the post. He was involved the rebuilding of the Observatory and, from untilhe supervised the project. He visited several other observatories in Germany before making his recommendations for the new Observatory.
In he married and he was to have one daughter and two sons. In he became director of the Observatory. He wrote De Computandis Occultationibus Fixarum per Planetas concerning occultations of the planets.
His contributions to mathematics are described by his biographer Richard Baltzer in  as follows: His intuition, the problems he set himself, and the solutions that he found, all exhibit something extraordinarily ingenious, something original in an uncontrived way.
He worked without hurrying, quietly on his own. His work remained almost locked away until everything had been put into its proper place. Without rushing, without pomposity and without arrogance, he waited until the fruits of his mind matured. Only after such a wait did he publish his perfected works In it he introduced homogeneous coordinates and also discussed geometric transformations, in particular projective transformations.
In he published Lehrbuch der Statik which gives a geometric treatment of statics. It led to the study of systems of lines in space. There was once a king with five sons. In his will he stated that on his death his kingdom should be divided by his sons into five regions in such a way that each region should have a common boundary with the other four.
Can the terms of the will be satisfied? The answer, of course, is negative and easy to show. It can be constructed in three dimensions as follows. Take a rectangular strip of paper and join the two ends of the strip together so that it has a degree twist. It is now possible to start at a point A on the surface and trace out a path that passes through the point which is apparently on the other side of the surface from A.Scientific Biography, Charles Scribner & Sons: New York, , Vol.
