About this book

Mathematical correspondence offers a rich heritage for the history of mathematics and science, as well as cultural history and other areas. It naturally covers a vast range of topics, and not only of a scientific nature; it includes letters between mathematicians, but also between mathematicians and politicians, publishers, and men or women of culture.

Leibniz, Euler, D’Alembert, Lambert, Lagrange, Laplace, Gauss, Hermite and Cremona are undoubtedly authors of great interest and their letters are valuable documents, but the correspondence of less well-known authors can also make an important contribution to the history of science.

This volume is based on the symposium “Mathematical Correspondences and Critical Editions,” held at the 6th International Conference of the  ESHS in Lisbon, Portugal in 2014.

Some aspects treated in this book:

The complementary role of printed and digital editions,

Integral and partial editions of correspondence,

Reproduction techniques for manuscripts, pictures and formulas,

Tools and techniques for identifying dates and correspondents.
