The Mathematics of Frobenius in Context(Hawkins)
http://www.springer.com/us/book/9781461463320
A Journey Through 18th to 20th Century Mathematics<br /><b>series:</b>Sources and Studies in the History of Mathematics and Physical Sciences<p>Frobenius is best known as creator of the theory of group characters and representations, but his name is attached to a multitude of theorems and concepts from a broad spectrum of mathematical disciplines. In this book his mathematics is presented “in context” in two senses. The first provides the reader with the historical background necessary to understand why Frobenius undertook to solve a ...History of MathematicsSat, 27 Jul 2013 23:16:28 GMThttp://www.springer.com/us/book/97814614633202013-07-27T23:16:28ZWolfgang Doeblin(Handwerk et al.)

A Mathematician Rediscovered<br /><b>series:</b>Springer VideoMATH<p>Wolfgang Doeblin, one of the great probabilists of the 20th century, was already widely known in the 1950s for his fundamental contributions to the theory of Markov chains. His coupling method became a key tool in later developments at the interface of probability and statistical mechanics. But the full measure of his mathematical stature became apparent only in 2000 when the sealed envelope ...History of MathematicsSun, 26 May 2013 00:55:42 GMThttp://www.springer.com/us/book/97835407195952013-05-26T00:55:42ZSeki, Founder of Modern Mathematics in Japan

A Mathematical Excursion<br /><b>series:</b>Science Networks. Historical Studies<p>This book offers an excursion through the developmental area of research mathematics. It presents some 40 papers, published between the 1870s and the 1970s, on proofs of the Cantor-Bernstein theorem and the related Bernstein division theorem. While the emphasis is placed on providing accurate proofs, similar to the originals, the discussion is broadened to include aspects that pertain to the ...History of MathematicsFri, 22 Mar 2013 16:07:24 GMThttp://www.springer.com/us/book/97830348022462013-03-22T16:07:24ZProofs of the Cantor-Bernstein Theorem(Hinkis)

Invariance and Conservation Laws in the Twentieth Century<br /><b>series:</b>Sources and Studies in the History of Mathematics and Physical Sciences<p>In 1915 Emmy Noether was invited by Klein and Hilbert to Göttingen to assist them in understanding the law of conservation of energy in Einstein’s new general theory of relativity. She succeeded brilliantly. In the Invariante Variationsprobleme, published in 1918, she proved a fundamental theorem linking invariance properties and conservation laws in any theory formulated in terms of a ...History of MathematicsSat, 05 Jan 2013 01:47:11 GMThttp://www.springer.com/us/book/97814614276812013-01-05T01:47:11ZA History of the Central Limit Theorem(Fischer)

From Classical to Modern Probability Theory<br /><b>series:</b>Sources and Studies in the History of Mathematics and Physical Sciences<p>This study aims to embed the history of the central limit theorem within the history of the development of probability theory from its classical to its modern shape, and, more generally, within the corresponding development of mathematics. The history of the central limit theorem is not only expressed in light of "technical" achievement, but is also tied tothe intellectual scope of its ...History of MathematicsSun, 09 Dec 2012 01:36:34 GMThttp://www.springer.com/us/book/97814614270182012-12-09T01:36:34ZJan de Witt’s Elementa Curvarum Linearum
