About this book

"…All of Weil’s works except for books and lecture notes are compiled here, in strict chronological order for easy reference.

But the value … goes beyond the convenience of easy reference and accessibility. In the first place, these volumes contain several essays, letters, and addresses which were either published in obscure places (…) or not published at all.

Even more valuable are the lengthy commentaries on many of the articles, written by Weil himself. These remarks serve as a guide, helping the reader place the papers in their proper context. Moreover, we have the rare opportunity of seeing a great mathematician in his later life reflecting on the development of his ideas and those of his contemporaries at various stages of his career.

The sheer number of mathematical papers of fundamental significance would earn Weil’s Collected Papers a place in the library of a mathematician with an interest in number theory, algebraic geometry, representations theory, or related areas. The additional import of the mathematical history and culture in these volumes makes them even more essential." Neal Koblitz in Mathematical Reviews

"…André Weil’s mathematical work has deeply influenced the mathematics of the twentieth century and the monumental (...) "Collected papers" emphasize this influence." O. Fomenko in Zentralblatt der Mathematik

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This reproduction of the 1979 edition of André Weil’s (1906-1998) Œuvres scientifiques covers more than 1500 pages. … The reading of this instructive text should be recommended to historians of mathematics. It provides an extensive survey of the interplay between probability theory and measure theory.” (Jean-Paul Pier, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1173, 2009)
