The shaping of arithmetic : after C.F. Gauss's Disquisitiones Arithmeticae by
Catherine Goldstein(
Book
)
19 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and German and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The cultural historian, Theodore Merz called it the great book with seven seals, the mathematician Leopold Kronecker, "the book of all books": already one century after their publication, C.F. Gauss's "Disquisitiones Arithmeticae" (1801) had acquired an almost mythical reputation. It had served throughout the XIXth century and beyond as an ideal of exposition in matters of notation, problems and methods; as a model of organisation and theory building; and of course as a source of mathematical inspiration. Various readings of the "Disquisitiones Arithmeticae" have left their mark on developments as different as Galois's theory of algebraic equations, Lucas's primality tests, and Dedekind's theory of ideals. The present volume revisits successive periods in the reception of the Disquisitiones: it studies which parts were taken up and when, which themes were further explored. It also focuses on how specific mathematicians reacted to Gauss's book: Dirichlet and Hermite, Kummer and Genocchi, Dedekind and Zolotarev, Dickson and Emmy Noether, among others. An astounding variety of research programmes in the theory of numbers can be traced back to it.; The 19 authors  mathematicians, historians, philosophers  who have collaborated on this volume contribute indepth studies on the various aspects of the bicentennial voyage of this mathematical text through history, and the way that the number theory we know today came into being

The war of guns and mathematics : mathematical practices and communities in France and its western allies around World War
I(
Book
)
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For a long time, World War I has been shortchanged by the historiography of science. Until recently, World War II was usually considered as the defining event for the formation of the modern relationship between science and society. In this context, the effects of the First World War, by contrast, were often limited to the massive deaths of promising young scientists. By focusing on a few key places (Paris, Cambridge, Rome, Chicago, Brno, and others), the present book gathers studies representing a broad spectrum of positions adopted by mathematicians about the conflict, from militant pacifism to military, scientific, or ideological mobilization. The use of mathematics for war is thoroughly examined. This book suggests a new vision of the longterm influence of World War I on mathematics and mathematicians. Continuities and discontinuities in the structure and organization of the mathematical sciences are discussed, as well as their images in various milieux. Topics of research and the values with which they were defended are scrutinized. This book, in particular, proposes a more indepth evaluation of the issue of modernity and modernization in mathematics. The issue of scientific international relations after the war is revisited by a close look at the situation in a few Allied countries (France, Britain, Italy, and the USA), as well as in a new country created by the war, Czechoslovakia. The historiography has emphasized the place of Germany as the leading mathematical country before WWI and the absurdity of its postwar ostracism by the Allies. The studies presented here help explain how dramatically different prewar situations, prolonged interaction during the war, and new international postwar organizations led to attempts at redrafting models for mathematical developments."Back cover
