Reciprocity laws : from Euler to Eisenstein by Franz Lemmermeyer( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is about the development of reciprocity laws, starting from conjectures of Euler and discussing the contributions of Legendre, Gauss, Dirichlet, Jacobi, and Eisenstein. Readers knowledgeable in basic algebraic number theory and Galois theory will find detailed discussions of the reciprocity laws for quadratic, cubic, quartic, sextic and octic residues, rational reciprocity laws, and Eisenstein's reciprocity law. An extensive bibliography will particularly appeal to readers interested in the history of reciprocity laws or in the current research in this area."--Jacket
Helmut Hasse und Emmy Noether : die Korrespondenz 1925-1935 by Helmut Hasse( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reproduces the complete extant correspondence between Emmy Noether and Helmut Hasse. There are 82 such letters, of which 79 are from Noether to Hasse, dating from 1925 until Noether's sudden death in 1935. The correspondence reflects a crucial period in the development of 20th century algebra and number theory, in particular class field theory. Details of proofs appear alongside with conjectures and speculations. Also discussed are questions of textbook presentation, e.g., of Galois theory. Aside from mathematical details, the spontaneity of Noether's style allows many glimpses at the image that Emmy Noether and Helmut Hasse had of the topics they were working in. The Hasse - Noether correspondence is a rich source for those who are interested in the rise and the development of mathematical notions and ideas. Each letter is accompanied by a detailed commentary supplied by the editors. For the convenience of the reader, numerous cross-references, extended indexes, and short biographies of all persons mentioned in the correspondence have been added

Emil Artin and Helmut Hasse : the correspondence 1923-1958 by Emil Artin( Book )

26 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents English translations of the letters exchanged between Emil Artin and Helmut Hasse written from 1921 to 1958. The letters are accompanied by extensive comments explaining the mathematical background and providing other essential context. Most letters deal with class field theory and shed new light on the birth of one of its most profound results: Artin's reciprocity law
Vorlesungen über Zahlentheorie : Carl Gustav Jacob Jacobi ; Wintersemester 1836/37, Königsberg by C. G. J Jacobi( Book )

Die mathematischen Tagebücher von Helmut Hasse 1923-1935 by Franz Lemmermeyer( )

6 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the full text of the mathematical notebooks of Helmut Hasse (1898-1979), who was one of the leading mathematicians of the 20th century. The originals have been preserved in the Handschriftenabteilung at the Göttingen University Library. There are a total of seven volumes which contain 98 entries all together; these span the time period from July 1923 to February 1935. Each of the entries is preceded by a short comment. An extensive bibliography is provided. Compared to the other documents and papers from Hasse Nachlass at Göttingen, these papers are quite different. They detail Hasse's mathematical background, interests and his way of approaching problems. Many of the entries are inspired by Hasse's discussions with other mathematicians (for example, Emil Artin is often mentioned). One of the notable highlights in the entries is the first documentation of Artin's conjecture on primitive roots (1927), which Hasse noted down after a discussion with Artin. Another example is the first proof of the Riemann hypothesis for an extended class of function fi elds of high genus, namely those of the generalised Fermat fields with a finite field of constants (1932), after corresponding with Harold Davenport.

The quadratic reciprocity law : a collection of classical proofs by Oswald Baumgart( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the English translation of Baumgart's thesis on the early proofs of the quadratic reciprocity law (Über das quadratische Reciprocitätsgesetz. Eine vergleichende Darstellung der Beweise), first published in 1885. It is divided into two parts. The first part presents a very brief history of the development of number theory up to Legendre, as well as detailed descriptions of several early proofs of the quadratic reciprocity law. The second part highlights Baumgart's comparisons of the principles behind these proofs. A current list of all known proofs of the quadratic reciprocity law, with complete references, is provided in the appendix. This book will appeal to all readers interested in elementary number theory and the history of number theory

Mathematik à la Carte : Elementargeometrie an Quadratwurzeln mit einigen geschichtlichen Bemerkungen by Franz Lemmermeyer( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in German and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenn heutzutage Mathematik auf dem Speiseplan steht, kommen bei Schülern eher selten Begeisterungsstürme auf. Auch Lehrer, die noch wissen, was man vor 30 Jahren am Gymnasium unterrichtet hat, haben bisweilen das Gefühl, dass das Fach Mathematik in der Kursstufe in manchen Bundesländern nach den Reformen der letzten Jahre zur mathematikfreien Zone degeneriert ist. So wie die Werbung uns glauben macht, ein Produkt aus Gelatine und künstlichen Aromen sei eine gesunde Zwischenmahlzeit, so wollen uns manche Didaktiker erklären, im heutigen Unterricht würden einfach nur andere Kompetenzen betont. Der Autor, der nach einigen Zwischenstationen an Universitäten in den USA und der Türkei seit 2007 an einem Gymnasium im Süden Deutschlands unterrichtet, gehört zu den Kritikern der modernen Didaktik, die wie die berühmten Bewohner eines kleinen gallischen Dorfs einer Übermacht von empirischen Bildungsforschern gegenüberstehen, und hat sich nicht davon überzeugen können, dass es mathematische Kompetenzen ohne Kenntnisse und Fertigkeiten gibt. Damit der Inhalt wieder seinen Weg zurück in den Unterricht finden kann, soll dieser (erste) Band statt Schokoschnitten wieder Äpfel anpreisen: Elementare Geometrie und etwas Algebra im Zusammenhang mit klassischen Themen wie dem Satz des Pythagoras, dem Satz des Thales, oder den schon lange entsorgten Kernsätzen des Euklid, garniert mit zahlreichen historischen Bemerkungen und vielen Aufgaben und Übungen. Der Autor würde sich wünschen, dass möglichst viele Leser Geschmack an diesem Buch finden, und dass das eine oder andere Thema in die Vertiefungskurse in Baden-Württemberg aufgenommen wird, mit denen die Studierfähigkeit der Abiturienten wieder hergestellt werden soll - aus einem solchen heraus ist auch die Idee zu diesem Buch geboren

The theory of algebraic number fields by David Hilbert( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an English translation of Hilbert's Zahlbericht, the monumental report on the theory of algebraic number field which he composed for the German Mathematical Society. In this magisterial work Hilbert provides a unified account of the development of algebraic number theory up to the end of the nineteenth century. He greatly simplified Kummer's theory and laid the foundation for a general theory of abelian fields and class field theory. David Hilbert (1862-1943) made great contributions to many areas of mathematics - invariant theory, algebraic number theory, the foundations of geometry, integral equations, the foundations of mathematics and mathematical physics. He is remembered also for his lecture at the Paris International Congress of Mathematicians in 1900 where he presented a set of 23 problems "from the discussion of which an advancement of science may be expected"--His expectations have been amply fulfilled
Galois theory of p-extensions by Helmut Koch( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in German in 1970 and translated into Russian in 1973, this classic now becomes available in English. After introducing the theory of pro-p groups and their cohomology, it discusses presentations of the Galois groups G S of maximal p-extensions of number fields that are unramified outside a given set S of primes. It computes generators and relations as well as the cohomological dimension of some G S, and gives applications to infinite class field towers. The book demonstrates that the cohomology of groups is very useful for studying Galois theory of number fields; at the same time, it offers a down to earth introduction to the cohomological method. In a "Postscript" Helmut Koch and Franz Lemmermeyer give a survey on the development of the field in the last 30 years. Also, a list of additional, recent references has been included

Emil Artin und Helmut Hasse die Korrespondenz 1923-1934 = Emil Artin and Helmut Hasse ; their correspondence 1923 -1934( )

1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the full text of the letters from Emil Artin to Helmut Hasse, as they are preserved in the Handschriftenabteilung of the Göttingen University Library. There are 49 such letters, written in the years 1923-1934, discussing mathematical problems of the time. The corresponding letters in the other direction, i.e., from Hasse to Artin, seem to be lost. We have supplemented Artin's letters by detailed comments, combined with a description of the mathematical environment of Hasse and Artin, and of the relevant literature. In this way it has become possible to sufficiently reconstruct the content of the corresponding letters from Hasse to Artin too. Artin and Hasse were among those who shaped modern algebraic number theory, in particular class field theory. Their correspondence admits a view of the ideas which led to the great achievements of their time, starting from Artin's L-series and his reciprocity law towards Hasseś norm symbol, local class field theory and the Local-Global Principle. These letters are a valuable source for understanding the rise and development of mathematical ideas and notions as we see them today. The book is a follow-up of our earlier book on the correspondence between Hasse and Emmy Noether. It is thus the second of a series which aims to open access to the rich collection of Hasse's mathematical letters and notes contained in the Göttingen Handschriftenabteilung
Der Briefwechsel Hasse - Scholz - Taussky by Helmut Hasse( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in German and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arnold Scholz (1906-1941) war einer der vielversprechendsten jungen Zahlentheoretiker in den 1930er Jahren, einer der besten Kenner der Klassenkörpertheorie. Als Doktorand von Issai Schur war er auch mit gruppentheoretischen Methoden vertraut. Da er während des Dritten Reichs als politisch nicht zuverlässig galt (er war ein enger Freund des ebenfalls "suspekten" Ernst Zermelo), konnte er keine sichere Stelle finden. Trotzdem gelang es ihm, eine Reihe wichtiger Resultate zu erhalten, u.a. bei der Realisierung von Galoisgruppen und in der Theorie der Normenreste. Der zu einem klaren Verständnis dieser Ergebnisse notwendige kohomologische Apparat war damals noch nicht entwickelt, und daher konnten zunächst nur Wenige mit den Scholzschen Ideen etwas anfangen. Eine Reihe seiner Resultate wurden später wiederentdeckt. Schafarewitsch konnte mit Hilfe der Scholzschen Methoden zeigen, dass jede endliche auflösbare Gruppe als Galoisgruppe einer Erweiterung der rationalen Zahlen vorkommt. Das vorliegende Buch, das als erster Schritt zu einem besseren Verständnis des Werks von Arnold Scholz anzusehen ist, enthält die Korrespondenz zwischen Arnold Scholz und Helmut Hasse einerseits und Olga Taussky andererseits, soweit sie in den Archiven der Universität Göttingen und des California Institute of Technology in Pasadena erhalten sind. Auch die Korrespondenz zwischen Hasse und Taussky bis zum frühen Tod von Arnold Scholz wurde aufgenommen
