I was wondering how to pronounce the, assumingly French, last name Mignotte. For a polynomial p(x) with integer coefficients, there is a bound on how big the coefficients can be on any proper factor of p(x). This is called the Landau-Mignotte bound.
- Maurice Mignotte is, I believe, a French mathematician who works or has worked as professor in Strasbourg, the well-known city on the border of France and Germany. This might have an effect on how the last name is to be pronounced.
Apologies if the question is elementary, I have no real experience with the French language. From a specific text-to-speech online software, the pronunciation appears to be, loosely speaking,
minjot, ending with a strong, solid 't'. This is also the aspect I am most curious about, as the ending in pronunciation influences how "Mignotte" is to be manipulated in grammar in my native language.
