Hilbert by Constance Reid( Book )
36 editions published between 1970 and 1983 in 4 languages and held by 1,290 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 )
105 editions published between 1939 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,250 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
Algebraic theory of numbers by Hermann Weyl( Book )
80 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 907 libraries worldwide
Mind and nature : selected writings on philosophy, mathematics, and physics by Hermann Weyl( Book )
17 editions published between 1934 and 2009 in English and German and held by 495 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.

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. Andere Bucher aus diesem Gebiet, wie zumBeispiel F.M. JAEGERS klassisches Werk Lectures on the principle of . rymmetry and its appli cations in natural science (Amsterdam und London 1917) oder das viel kleinere und neuereBuchlein von JACQUES NICoLLE, La
Über die Hypothesen, welche der Geometrie zu Grunde liegen by Bernhard Riemann( Book )
26 editions published between 1919 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 171 libraries worldwide
This book presents William Clifford's English translation of Bernhard Riemann's classic text together with detailed mathematical, historical and philosophical commentary. The basic concepts and ideas, as well as their mathematical background, are provided, putting Riemann's reasoning into the more general and systematic perspective achieved by later mathematicians and physicists (including Helmholtz, Ricci, Weyl, and Einstein) on the basis of his seminal ideas. Following a historical introduction that positions Riemann's work in the context of his times, the history of the concept of space in philosophy, physics and mathematics is systematically presented. A subsequent chapter on the reception and influence of the text accompanies the reader from Riemann's times to contemporary research. Not only mathematicians and historians of the mathematical sciences, but also readers from other disciplines or those with an interest in physics or philosophy will find this work both appealing and insightful
