Bernoulli's 350th Birthday

Sunday, 06. August 2017

Lupe

Today we say: Happy 350th Birthday, Johann Bernoulli!

Johann Bernoulli was a Swiss mathematician and medical doctor, younger brother of the mathematician Jakob I. Bernoulli and father of the mathematician Daniel Bernoulli. The Bernoullis were a patrician family of merchants and scholars; Johann is known for his contributions to infinitesimal calculus and L'Hospital's rule as well as making the new branch of mathematics "Analysis" known on the european continent.

On this occasion we put together a small exhibition about Johann and his family. It can be found right next to our entrance until the end of august.

Lupe

If you want to inform yourself about recent developments in the mathematical sciences, you can use the internet, or - old fashioned but quite convenient - browse the journals section in our reading room.

Here you can find current issues of the mathematical journals, we have subscribed to. We just updated the inscription. Now you can see at a glance

  • which volumes we provide and
  • if the content is available in print or online.

Taking a look is well worthwhile.

Happy Birthday Mr. Banach!

Thursday, 30. March 2017

Stefan Banach
Lupe

30th of March 2017 is the 125th birthday of one of the - if not the - founder of modern functional analysis: Stefan Banach.

Banach is one of the most famous mathematicians of the 20th century: Math students hear about the Banach fixed-point theorem at the latest in their second semester. The Banach spaces are named after him and are central research objects of functional analysis.

On this occasion the Mathematics Library has put together a small exhibition about his life and his work. It can be found right next to the entrance until the 18th of April.

Bernhard Riemann

Wednesday, 20. July 2016

Lupe

Today is the 150th death anniversary of one of the most important mathematicians: Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann. He lived in the 19th century and knew various scientific figures of his time. Despite his only 39 years he was a pioneer in many fields of analysis, differential geometry, mathematical physics and analytic number theory. His work is still of great importance for the sciences.

Riemann is known and has named different mathematical structures: Riemannian geometry, Riemann surface, Riemann integral and much more.

Books for Riemann geometry can be found at the call number 53B and 53C. Riemann's collected works are at 01A75/Ri.

Congratulations Sir Andrew J. Wiles!

Wednesday, 06. July 2016

Lupe

The Abel Prize for 2016 goes to Sir Andrew J. Wiles (62), University of Oxford, "for his stunning proof
of Fermat’s Last Theorem
by way of the modularity conjecture for semistable elliptic curves, opening a new era in number theory.

Andrew J. Wiles is one of very few mathematicians whose proof of a theorem has made international headline news. In 1994 he cracked Fermat’s Last Theorem, after 30 years of interest in it. In 1963, when he was a ten-year old boy growing up in Cambridge, England, Wiles found a copy of a book on Fermat’s Last Theorem in his local library. Wiles recalls that he was intrigued by the problem that he as a young boy could understand, and yet it had remained unsolved for three hundred years. "I knew from that moment that I would never let it go," he said. "I had to solve it."

And solve it he did! Look at the fascinating book "Fermat's Last Theorem" by Simon Singh which tells the adventurous story of this mathematical riddle. Find it at your Mathematics Library with the call number 00A06/Si.

Er war engagierter Jurist und vortrefflicher Mathematiker im 17. Jahrhundert. Seine Beiträge zur Differentialrechnung, analytischen Geometrie, Zahlentheorie, Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und Variationsrechnung waren bahnbrechend und beeinflussen uns noch heute. Der Beweis seines letzten Satzes - der große fermatsche Satz - gilt als ein Höhepunkt der Mathematik des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Zu seinem Leben und seinem berühmten letzten Satz haben wir in unseren Räumen eine Ausstellung zusammengestellt.
