Mathematics and Mathematicians: Mathematics in Sweden Before 1950

American Mathematical Society, 1997 - 288 pàgines
This book is about mathematics in Sweden between 1630 and 1950-from S. Klingenstierna to M. Riesz, T. Carleman, and A. Beurling. It tells the story of how continental mathematics came to Sweden, how it was received, and how it inspired new results. The book contains a biography of Gösta Mittag-Leffler, the father of Swedish mathematics, who introduced the Weierstrassian theory of analytic functions and dominated a golden age from 1880 to 1910. Important results are analyzed and re-proved in modern notation, with explanations of their relations to mathematics at the time. The book treats Bäcklu.
