Number theory : an approach through history from Hammurapi to Legendre by
André Weil(
Book
)
47 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Number Theory or arithmetic, as some prefer to call it, is the oldest, purest, liveliest, most elementary yet sophisticated field of mathematics. It is no coincidence that the fundamental science of numbers has come to be known as the "Queen of Mathematics." Indeed some of the most complex conventions of the mathematical mind have evolved from the study of basic problems of number theory. André Weil, one of the outstanding contributors to number theory, has written an historical exposition of this subject; his study examines texts that span roughly thirtysix centuries of arithmetical work  from an Old Babylonian tablet, datable to the time of Hammurapi to Legendre's Essai sur la Théorie des Nombres (1798). Motivated by a desire to present the substance of his field to the educated reader, Weil employs an historical approach in the analysis of problems and evolving methods of number theory and their significance within mathematics. In the course of his study Weil accompanies the reader into the workshops of four major authors of modern number theory (Fermat, Euler, Lagrange and Legendre) and there he conducts a detailed and critical examination of their work. Enriched by a broad coverage of intellectual history, Number Theory represents a major contribution to the understanding of our cultural heritage.  A very unusual book combining thorough philological exactness, keen observation, apt comments of the essential points, picturesque fantasy, enthusiastic love of the subject, and brilliant literary style: a romantic novel of documents. It is both number theory and its history in an inseparable oneness, helping us understand the very roots and the first big stage of progress of this discipline. The author, one of the most prominent number theorists ... chose to give us a broad perspective of the birth of modern number theory.Periodica Mathematica Hungaria The volume under review ... a discursive, expository, leisurely peek over the shoulders of several great authors in number theory ... is perhaps unique in the enthusiasm it has inspired.

Foundations of algebraic geometry by
André Weil(
Book
)
55 editions published between 1946 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This classic is one of the cornerstones of modern algebraic geometry. At the same time, it is entirely selfcontained, assuming no knowledge whatsoever of algebraic geometry, and no knowledge of modern algebra beyond the simplest facts about abstract fields and their extensions, and the bare rudiments of the theory of ideals

Elliptic functions according to Eisenstein and Kronecker by
André Weil(
Book
)
38 editions published between 1975 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As a contribution to the history of mathematics, this is a model of its kind. While adhering to the basic outlook of Eisenstein and Kronecker, it provides new insight into their work in the light of subsequent developments, right up to the present day. As one would expect from this author, it also contains some pertinent comments looking into the future. It is not however just a chapter in the history of our subject, but a wideranging survey of one of the most active branches of mathematics at the present time. The book has its own very individual flavour, reflecting a sort of combined EisensteinKroneckerWeil personality. Based essentially on Eisenstein's approach to elliptic functions via infinite series over lattices in the complex plane, it stretches back to the very beginnings on the one hand and reaches forward to some of the most recent research work on the other. (...) The persistent reader will be richly rewarded." A. Fröhlich, Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 1978

Adeles and algebraic groups by
André Weil(
Book
)
8 editions published between 1977 and 1982 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains the original lecture notes presented by A. Weil in which the concept of adeles was first introduced, in conjunction with various aspects of C.L. Siegels work on quadratic forms. These notes have been supplemented by an extended bibliography, and by Takashi Onos brief survey of subsequent research. Serving as an introduction to the subject, these notes may also provide stimulation for further research

Mein Leben, oder zumindest das, was diesen Namen verdient ein außer gewöhnlich glückliches Leben mit einigen Schicksalsschlägen erstreckte sich auf die Zeit zwischen dem 6. Mai 1906, dem Tag meiner Geburt, und dem 24. Mai 1986, dem Todestag meiner Frau und Gefährtin Eveline. Wenn auf diesen Seiten, die ihr gewidmet sind, von meiner Frau recht wenig die Rede sein wird, heißt das nicht, daß sie in meinem Leben und in meinen Gedanken einen geringen Platz eingenommen hätte. Sie war im Gegenteil, beinahe vom Tag unserer ersten Begegnung an, so eng damit verwoben, daß von mir oder von ihr zu sprechen ein und dasselbe ist. Ihre Anwesenheit beziehungsweise ihre Abwesenheit bestimmte die Textur meines ganzen Lebens. Was könnte ich anderes dazu sagen, als daß unsere Ehe eine von jenen war, die La Rochefoucauld Lügen strafen? {raquo}Fulsere vere candidi mihi soles ... {laquo} Ebenso wird meine Schwester kaum erwähnt werden. Es ist schon lange her, daß ich meine Erinnerungen an sie Simone Petrement mitgeteilt habe, die sie in ihre gute Biographie La vie de Simone Weil einfließen ließ, wo man viele Einzelheiten über unsere gemeinsame Kindheit erfahren kann, und es wäre unnötig, dies hier zu wiederholen. Als Kinder waren wir unzertrennlich, aber ich war der große Bruder und sie die kleine Schwester. Später waren wir selten zusammen, und meist sprachen wir in scherzhaftem Ton miteinander, denn sie hatte ein fröhliches und humorvolles Naturell, wie alle, die sie kannten, bestätigt haben
