From 1.1.18 presumably constricted access to Elsevier journals

Thursday, 28. December 2017

From 01.01.2018 there will presumably be no more access to the current articles of Elsevier journals at TU Berlin. Negotiations of the German Rectors' Conference (HRK), on behalf of the Alliance of Science Organisations, for a licensing agreement with Elsevier have remained unsuccessful so far.

Sophus Lie – Happy Birthday!

Sunday, 17. December 2017


Today, 175 years ago, the Norwegian mathematician Marius Sophus Lie was born.

Lie founded the theory of continuous symmetry - Lie theory - and introduced continuous transformation groups, which today bear the name Lie group. Many more mathematical structures and theorems are named after Lie.

His collected works (German: Gesammelte Abhandlungen) and the volumes on transformation group theory (German: Theorie der Transformationsgruppen) can be found in our classic collection.
