(7739) | Čech = 1982 CE (\v{C}ech in TeX)Discovered 1982 February 14 by L. Brožek at Kleť. |

Named in memory of Eduard Čech (1893-1960), Czech
mathematician, professor at Charles University in Prague and
Masaryk University in Brno. One of his papers, On
bicompact spaces, introduces what today is called
the Stone-Čech compactification of regular topological
spaces. His research in topology is fundamental,
but his work was also important in the development of functional
analysis.
Name proposed by J. Tichá and Z. Moravec following a
number of suggestions from Charles University.
