He worked also on the theory of equations, giving early expositions of Galois theory. He also discovered Betti's theorem, a result in the theory of elasticity. He was born in Pistoia, Tuscany. He graduated from the University of Pisa in 1846. After a time teaching he held an appointment there from 1857. In 1858 he toured Europe with Francesco Brioschi and Felice Casorati, meeting Bernhard Riemann. Later he worded in the area of theoretical physics opened up by Riemann's work.
