The Mathematics of Frobenius in Context: A Journey Through 18th to 20th Century Mathematics

Springer Science & Business Media, 23 de jul. 2013 - 699 pàgines

Frobenius made many important contributions to mathematics in the latter part of the 19th century. Hawkins here focuses on his work in linear algebra and its relationship with the work of Burnside, Cartan, and Molien, and its extension by Schur and Brauer. He also discusses the Berlin school of mathematics and the guiding force of Weierstrass in that school, as well as the fundamental work of d'Alembert, Lagrange, and Laplace, and of Gauss, Eisenstein and Cayley that laid the groundwork for Frobenius's work in linear algebra. The book concludes with a discussion of Frobenius's contribution to the theory of stochastic matrices.

Sobre l'autor (2013)

Thomas Hawkins won the 2001 Whiteman Prize, an AMS prize that honors notable exposition in the history of mathematics. The citation for the prize calls Hawkins "an outstanding historian of mathematics whose current research and numerous publications display the highest standards of mathematical and historical sophistication." The citation also mentions a number of Hawkins’ works, including his book, The Emergence of the Theory of Lie Groups: An Essay in the History of Mathematics 1869-1926. "Hawkins’ work has truly transformed our understanding of how modern mathematics has evolved," the citation concludes.
