Number theory : an approach through history from Hammurapi to Legendre by André Weil ( Book )
49 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,332 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. Andr Weil, one of the outstanding contributors to number theory, has written an historical exposition of this subject; his study examines texts that span roughly thirty-six centuries of arithmetical work from an Old Babylonian tablet, datable to the time of Hammurapi to Legendres Essai sur la Thorie 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 theoristschose 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 theoryis perhaps unique in the enthusiasm it has inspired. --Mathematical Reviews

Elliptic functions according to Eisenstein and Kronecker by André Weil ( Book )
27 editions published between 1975 and 2009 in English and German and held by 584 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 wide-ranging 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 Eisenstein-Kronecker-Weil 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 )
33 editions published between 1961 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 512 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
