  • Second volume of Collected Works of Ernst Zermelo
  • Shows Zermelo's pioneering but little known work in applied mathematics
  • Extensive comments by current experts

Ernst Zermelo (1871-1953) is regarded as the founder of axiomatic set theory and is best-known for the first formulation of the axiom of choice.  However, his papers also include pioneering work in applied mathematics and mathematical physics.

This edition of his collected papers consists of two volumes. The present Volume II covers Ernst Zermelo’s work on the calculus of variations, applied mathematics, and physics.

The papers are each presented in their original language together with an English translation, the versions facing each other on opposite pages. Each paper or coherent group of papers is preceded by an introductory note provided by an acknowledged expert in the field who comments on the historical background, motivation, accomplishments, and influence.
