Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews: " [a ] ] The result is a massive book with a lot of interesting material in it. About half of this material should be accessible to a wide audience; the other half will be of interest mostly to specialists. With the book comes a CD-ROM containing still more material related to Abel and to the conference. [a ]] It's a delightful package, particularly for those of us who are interested in the history of mathematics and/or in number theory, algebraic geometry, and complex function theory. Just the images on the CD would make me want to have a copy. Given the size of this book and the extras on the CD, this isn't even very expensive; no library should be without a copy." Fernando Q. GouvAaa, MAA Online (for complete review see "Briefly noted" at http: //www.maa.org/reviews) "The core of the book consists of contributions presented at the Abel bicentennial conference held at the University of Oslo a ] . The book contains a huge amount of information of historical and mathematical nature. It can be recommended not only to those working in fields having roots in one of Abela (TM)s versatile contributions to mathematics but also to anybody who likes to read how ideas can influence the future development."
