Hilbert by Constance Reid( Book )
40 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,281 libraries worldwide
If the life of any 20th century mathematician can be said to be a history of mathematics in his time, it is that of David Hilbert. To the enchanted young mathematicians and physicists who flocked to study with him in Gottingen before and between the World Wars, he seemed mathematics personified, the very air around him "scientifically electric." His remarkably prescient proposal in 1900 of twenty-three problems for the coming century set the course of much subsequent mathematics and remains a feat that no scientist in any field has been able to duplicate. When he died, Nature remarked that there was scarcely a mathematician in the world whose work did not derive from that of Hilbert. Constance Reid's classic biography is a moving, nontechnical account of the passionate scientific life of this man - from the early days in Konigsberg, when his revolutionary work was dismissed as "theology," to the golden years in Gottingen before Hitler came to power and within a few months destroyed the entire Hilbert school. The Copernicus paperback edition makes this book available to new generations of mathematicians who know the name Hilbert, which is everywhere in mathematics, but do not know the man
The classical groups : their invariants and representations by Hermann Weyl( Book )
102 editions published between 1939 and 2016 in English and German and held by 1,233 libraries worldwide
In this renowned volume, Hermann Weyl discusses the symmetric, full linear, orthogonal, and symplectic groups and determines their different invariants and representations. Using basic concepts from algebra, he examines the various properties of the groups. Analysis and topology are used wherever appropriate. The book also covers topics such as matrix algebras, semigroups, commutators, and spinors, which are of great importance in understanding the group-theoretic structure of quantum mechanics. Hermann Weyl was among the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century. He made fundamental contributions to most branches of mathematics, but he is best remembered as one of the major developers of group theory, a powerful formal method for analyzing abstract and physical systems in which symmetry is present. In The Classical Groups, his most important book, Weyl provided a detailed introduction to the development of group theory, and he did it in a way that motivated and entertained his readers. Departing from most theoretical mathematics books of the time, he introduced historical events and people as well as theorems and proofs. One learned not only about the theory of invariants but also when and where they were originated, and by whom. He once said of his writing, "My work always tried to unite the truth with the beautiful, but when I had to choose one or the other, I usually chose the beautiful." Weyl believed in the overall unity of mathematics and that it should be integrated into other fields. He had serious interest in modern physics, especially quantum mechanics, a field to which The Classical Groups has proved important, as it has to quantum chemistry and other fields. Among the five books Weyl published with Princeton, Algebraic Theory of Numbers inaugurated the Annals of Mathematics Studies book series, a crucial and enduring foundation of Princeton's mathematics list and the most distinguished book series in
The concept of a Riemann surface. Translated from the German by Gerald R. Maclane by Hermann Weyl( Book )
37 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in English and German and held by 566 libraries worldwide
This classic on the general history of functions was written by one of the twentieth century's best-known mathematicians. Hermann Weyl, who worked with Einstein at Princeton, combined function theory and geometry in this high-level landmark work, forming a new branch of mathematics and the basis of the modern approach to analysis, geometry, and topology. The author intended this book not only to develop the basic ideas of Riemann's theory of algebraic functions and their integrals but also to examine the related ideas and theorems with an unprecedented degree of rigor. Weyl's two-part treatment begins by defining the concept and topology of Riemann surfaces and concludes with an exploration of functions of Riemann surfaces. His teachings illustrate the role of Riemann surfaces as not only devices for visualizing the values of analytic functions but also as indispensable components of the theory
Mind and nature : selected writings on philosophy, mathematics, and physics by Hermann Weyl( Book )
31 editions published between 1934 and 2014 in English and German and held by 539 libraries worldwide
"Hermann Weyl (1885-1955) was one of the twentieth century's most important mathematicians, as well as a seminal figure in the development of quantum physics and general relativity. He was also an eloquent writer with a lifelong interest in the philosophical implications of the startling new scientific developments with which he was so involved. Mind and Nature is a collection of Weyl's most important general writings on philosophy, mathematics, and physics, including pieces that have never before been published in any language or translated into English, or that have long been out of print.

Symmetrie by Hermann Weyl( Book )
27 editions published between 1955 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 211 libraries worldwide
UND BIBLIOGRAPHISCHE BEMERKUNGEN Beginnend mit der etwas vagen Vorstellung von Symmetrie als Harmonie der Proportionen entwickeln diese vier V ortrage stufen weise zuerst den Begriff der geometrischen Symmetrie in ihren ver schiedenen Formen als bilaterale, translative, rotative, ornamentale und kristallographische Symmetrie und steigen schlieGlich zu der allgemeinen, all dies en speziellen Formen zugrunde liegenden Idee auf, namlich der Idee der Invarianz eines Gebildes gegenuber einer Gruppe automorpher Transformationen. Ich habe dabei zweiDinge im Auge: einerseits die groGe Mannigfaltigkeit der Anwendungen des Symmetrieprinzips in der Kunst, in der anorganischen und der organischen Natur aufzuzeigen, andererseits Schritt fUr Schritt die philosophisch-mathematische Bedeutung des Symmetriebegriffs zu klaren. Dieses letztere Ziel erfordert die Gegenuberstellung der Prinzipien von Symmetrie und Relativitat, wahrend dem ersteren zahlreiche den Text erlauternde Illustrationen zu dienen bestimmt sind. Als Leser dieses Buchs hatte ich einen weiteren Kreis als den gelehrter Spezialisten im Sinn. Das Buch meidet die Mathematik nicht (damit wurde es seinen Zweck verfehlen), aber die ausfuhr liche Behandlung, insbesondere die vollstandige mathematische Be handlung der meisten darin betrachteten Probleme liegt auGerhalb seines Zielbereichs. Den Vortragen, welche in leicht modifizierter Form die yom Verfasser an der Universitat Princeton im Februar 1951 gehaltenen Louis Clark Vanuxem Lectures wiedergeben, sind zwei Anhiinge mit mathematischen Beweisen angefugt worden.

Medientheorie im epistemischen Übergang Hermann Weyls Philosophie der Mathematik und Naturwissenschaft und Ernst Cassirers Philosophie der symbolischen Formen im Wechselverhältnis by Nils Röller( file )
1 edition published in 2002 in German and held by 2 libraries worldwide
1921 nennt der Mathematiker Hermann Weyl (1885-1955) das Kontinuum ein "Medium des freien Werdens".Diese Formulierung nimmt die Dissertation zum Anlass, um die medientheoretische Bedeutung der philosophischen Schriften von Hermann Weyl zu untersuchen.Das konstruktive Kontinuum, in dem nach Weyls Auffassung die Physik präparierte Ereignisse ansiedelt, ist scharf von der anschaulichen Wirklichkeit zu unterscheiden. Weyl erklärt in Diskussionen der Positionen Hilberts und Brouwers in der mathematischen Grundlagenkrise das Kontinuum als Produkt des menschlichen Bewusstseins. Weyls Theorie des Kontinuums weicht von der Darstellung in der Philosophie der symbolischen Formen Ernst Cassirers ab. Cassirer setzt in seinem Hauptwerk voraus, daß der mathematische Symbolismus und das konstruktive Kontinuum eine Brücke zwischen Bewusstsein und Wirklichkeit bilden. Das Wechselverhältnis zwischen dem Mathematiker Weyl und dem Philosophen Cassirer zeigt beispielhafte Formen der Vermittlung zwischen Philosophie und moderner Naturwissenschaft. Weyls Schriften werden als paradigmatisch für die Medientheorie gedeutet
