Bernhard Riemann, 1826-1866 : turning points in the conception of mathematics by Detlef Laugwitz( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, originally written in German and presented here in an English-language translation, is the first attempt to examine Riemann's scientific work from a single unifying perspective. Laugwitz describes Riemann's development of a conceptual approach to mathematics at a time when conventional algorithmic thinking dictated that formulas and figures, rigid constructs, and transformations of terms were the only legitimate means of studying mathematical objects. David Hilbert gave prominence to the Riemannian principle of utilizing thought, not calculation, to achieve proofs. Hermann Weyl interpreted the Riemann principle - for mathematics and physics alike - to be a matter of "understanding the world through its behavior in the infinitely small." This remarkable work, rich in insight and scholarship, is addressed to mathematicians, physicists, and philosophers interested in mathematics. It seeks to draw those readers closer to the underlying ideas of Riemann's work and to the development of them in their historical context. This illuminating English-language version of the original German edition will be an important contribution to the literature of the history of mathematics
