Few men in modern mathematics have had as great an impact as the Norwegian Niels Henrik Abel (1802-29), whose discoveries paved the way for several new branches of nineteenth-century mathematics. Tragically, Abel's short life was dominated by poverty and his scientific achievements were not fully recognised until after his death. This work, written by Carl Anton Bjerknes (1825-1903), was the first full biography of Abel. Originally published in 1880 and translated into French in 1885, it became a valuable resource for later Abel biographers and scholars of the history of mathematics. With insight and understanding, Bjerknes charts the progress of the talented young mathematician and gives a detailed account of Abel's work and his correspondence with other contemporary mathematicians. In particular, he examines in depth (from Abel's point of view) the dispute between Abel and his rival Jacobi relating to their discoveries of elliptic functions in the 1820s

NIELS HENRIK ABEL gehort einer alten Beamten- und Pfarrer familie an. Nach der Uberlieferung ist sie aus Danemark einge wandert, und man vermutet, daB sich der N arne von der Gemeinde Abild in Tondem, Siidjiitland, herschreibt. Als der norwegische Stammvater des Geschlechts wird MATHIAS ABEL genannt, der als "Commissariatsschreiber" 1664 in Drontheim starb. HANS MATHIAS ABEL, Sohn des Enkels des vorstehenden und GroBvater des Mathematikers, starb 1803 als Gemeindepfarrer in Gjerstad (im siidlichen Norwegen). Er wird als ein charakterfester und kraftiger Mann mit vielseitiger Wirksamkeit geschildert. Er fiihrte den Flachsbau ein, brachte die Armenpflege in Ordnung und nahm sich warm des Schulwesens an. Aber es war besonders der gewohnliche MiBbrauch des Alkohols und die festgewUIzeLte Lust am Rausche, denen er auf jede Weise entgegenzuarbeiten versuchte, aber, da er Zwangsmitteln keinen Wert beilegte, wollte er besonders auf sittlichem Wege gegen das Ubel wirken. Das fiihrte dazu, daB er selbst, wie es iiber ihn heiBt, "starken Getran ken abschwor, und dies Geliibde hielt er getreulich, und wollte sie nicht auf seinem Tisch sehen, obwohl es gerade in jener Zeit sehr iiblich war, geistige Getranke sowohl anzubieten als selbst zu ge nieBen". In seiner Frau, geborenen NORMAND, fand er eine wert volle Stiitze. Sein Sohn, SOREN GEORG ABEL, der Vater des Mathematikers, besuchte die Schule in Helsingor, Danemark, wo der Rektor der Schule, der spatere Professor und Staatsrat N. TRESCHOW, seine ausgezeichneten Fahigkeiten sehr schatzte
