One of the forefathers of modern dynamical systems theory, Gaston Julia is best known as the creator of the Julia Sets. Julia was quite famous, especially among mathematicians, in the 1920s for his "Mémoire sur l'itération des fonctions rationnelles", published in the Journal de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées (1918).
