Symmetry by Hermann Weyl( Book )

110 editions published between 1938 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 3,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Weyl presents a masterful and fascinating survey of the applications of the principle of symmetry in sculpture, painting, architecture, ornament, and design; its manifestations in organic and inorganic nature; and its philosophical and mathematical significance. -- Scientific American
Mind and nature : selected writings on philosophy, mathematics, and physics by Hermann Weyl( )

29 editions published between 1934 and 2014 in English and German and held by 2,442 WorldCat member 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.

Philosophy of mathematics and natural science by Hermann Weyl( Book )

146 editions published between 1926 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 2,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When mathematician Hermann Weyl decided to write a book on philosophy, he faced what he referred to as "conflicts of conscience", the objective nature of science, he felt, did not mesh easily with the incredulous, uncertain nature of philosophy. Yet the two disciplines were already intertwined. In Philosophy of Mathematics and Natural Science, Weyl examines how advances in philosophy were led by scientific discoveries, the more humankind understood about the physical world, the more curious we became
Space, time, matter by Hermann Weyl( Book )

135 editions published between 1918 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long one of the standard texts in the field, this excellent introduction probes deeply into Euclidean space, Riemann's space, Einstein's general relativity, gravitational waves and energy, and laws of conservation

31 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of original papers on the special and general theories of relativity is an unabridged translation of the 4th edition of Das Relativitatsprinzip, together with a revised edition of an additional paper by H.A. Lorentz
The classical groups : their invariants and representations by Hermann Weyl( Book )

50 editions published between 1939 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,284 WorldCat member 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
Hilbert by Constance Reid( Book )

32 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,212 WorldCat member 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
Algebraic theory of numbers by Hermann Weyl( Book )

76 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raum. Zeit. Materie. Vorlesungen über allgemeine Relativitätstheorie by Hermann Weyl( Book )

103 editions published between 1918 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Studium von Hermann Weyls Raum . Zeit . Materie ist auch heute noch lohnenswert. Als erste systematische Gesamtdarstellung der speziellen und allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie einschließlich der zugehörigen Mathematik setzt es sich gründlich mit den historischen Wurzeln auseinander. Die Betonung des Begriffs des linearen Zusammenhangs unabhängig von der Metrik kommt der heutigen Auffassung und den Verallgemeinerungen in den Eichtheorien entgegen. Für ein gründliches Verständnis der modernen Eichtheorie ist Weyls Buch immer noch eine wichtige Grundlage
