    EMS Heritage of European Mathematics
    Volume: 72013; 289 pp
    MSC: Primary 01; 03; 11; 12; 16; 20;

    The 20th century was a time of great upheaval and great progress in mathematics. In order to get the overall picture of trends, developments, and results, it is illuminating to examine their manifestations locally, in the personal lives and work of mathematicians who were active during this time. The university archives of Göttingen harbor a wealth of papers, letters, and manuscripts from several generations of mathematicians—documents which tell the story of the historic developments from a local point of view.

    This book offers a number of essays based on documents from Göttingen and elsewhere—essays which have not yet been included in the author's collected works. These essays, independent from each other, are meant as contributions to the imposing mosaic of the history of number theory. They are written for mathematicians, but there are no special background requirements.

    The essays discuss the works of Abraham Adrian Albert, Cahit Arf, Emil Artin, Richard Brauer, Otto Grün, Helmut Hasse, Klaus Hoechsmann, Robert Langlands, Heinrich-Wolfgang Leopoldt, Emmy Noether, Abraham Robinson, Ernst Steinitz, Hermann Weyl, and others.

    Readership

    Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in number theory.
