Hermann Weyls im Verlag B.G. Teubner in Leipzig erschienenes Jugendwerk "Die Idee der Riemannschen Flc̃he" war bahnbrechend für die Entwicklung der Mathematik des 20. Jahrhundrts. Es ist aus Weyls Vorlesung vom Wintersemester 1911/12 an der Universitt̃ Gt̲tingen hervorgegangen. Diese von Reinhold Remmert herausgegebene Edition des mathematischen Kultbuches aus dem 1913 wird komplettiert durch aktuelle Essays führender Wissenschaftler und durch biographische Materialien. Der Herausgeber schreibt in seinem Prom̲ium: "Weyl war 1912 seiner Zeit voraus ... An die Stelle der erfindungsreichen schp̲ferischen Phantasie eines Riemann und Klein, die ein verheißenes Land suchte, tritt der systematische Anbau auf sicher erworbenem Boden. Das Werk mit seinem Reichtum an Gedanken trg̃t den Keim zukünftiger Entwicklung in sich: es bereitete den Weg zur Theorie der topologischen, differenzierbaren und komplexen Mannigfaltigkeiten."

Hilbert by

)
37 editions published between 1970 and 1983 in 4 languages and held by 1,298 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 twentythree 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

Mind and nature : selected writings on philosophy, mathematics, and physics by
Hermann Weyl(
Book
)
24 editions published between 1934 and 2009 in English and German and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hermann Weyl (18851955) 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.
