24998 Hermite           Discovered 1998 July 28 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
Charles Hermite (1822-1901) was a very versatile French analyst and algebraist. He solved the quintic equations by means of elliptic functions, discovered a class of orthogonal polynomials that bear his name and proved the transcendence of e, the base of the natural logarithms.
