Oeuvres complètes de Niels Henrik Abel by Niels Henrik Abel( Book )

80 editions published between 1881 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Niels Henrik Abel (1802–29) was one of the most prominent mathematicians in the first half of the nineteenth century. His pioneering work in diverse areas such as algebra, analysis, geometry and mechanics has made the adjective 'abelian' a commonplace in mathematical writing. These collected works, first published in two volumes in 1881 after careful preparation by the mathematicians Ludwig Sylow (1832–1918) and Sophus Lie (1842–99), contain some of the pillars of mathematical history. Volume 1 includes perhaps the most famous of Abel's results, namely his proof of the 'impossibility theorem', which states that the general fifth-degree polynomial is unsolvable by algebraic means. Also included in this volume is Abel's 'Paris memoir', which contains his many fundamental results on transcendental functions - in particular on elliptic integrals, elliptic functions, and what are known today as abelian integrals

The legacy of Niels Henrik Abel : the Abel bicentennial, Oslo, 2002 by Olav Arnfinn Laudal( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abel's influence on modern mathematics is substantial. This is seen in many ways, but maybe clearest in the number of mathematical terms containing the adjective Abelian. In algebra, algebraic and complex geometry, analysis, the theory of differential and integral equations, and function theory there are terms like Abelian groups, Abelian varieties, Abelian integrals, Abelian functions. A number of theorems are attributed to Abel. The famous Addition Theorem of Abel, proved in his Paris Mmoire, stands out, even today, as a mathematical landmark. This book, written by some of the foremost specialists in their fields, contains important survey papers on the history of Abel and his work in several fields of mathematics. The purpose of the book is to combine a historical approach to Abel with an overview of his scientific legacy as perceived at the beginning of the 21st century
