Editorial Review Product Description Number Theory or arithmetic, as some prefer to call it, is the oldest, purest, liveliest, most elementary yet sophisticated field of mathematics. It is no coincidence that the fundamental science of numbers has come to be known as the "Queen of Mathematics." Indeed some of the most complex conventions of the mathematical mind have evolved from the study of basic problems of number theory. André Weil, one of the outstanding contributors to number theory, has written an historical exposition of this subject; his study examines texts that span roughly thirty-six centuries of arithmetical work — from an Old Babylonian tablet, datable to the time of Hammurapi to Legendre’s Essai sur la Théorie des Nombres (1798). Motivated by a desire to present the substance of his field to the educated reader, Weil employs an historical approach in the analysis of problems and evolving methods of number theory and their significance within mathematics. In the course of his study Weil accompanies the reader into the workshops of four major authors of modern number theory (Fermat, Euler, Lagrange and Legendre) and there he conducts a detailed and critical examination of their work. Enriched by a broad coverage of intellectual history, Number Theory represents a major contribution to the understanding of our cultural heritage. Customer Reviews (2)

Editorial Review Product Description "Extremely readable recollections of the author... A rare testimony of a period of the history of 20th century mathematics. Includes very interesting recollections on the author's participation in the formation of the Bourbaki Group, tells of his meetings and conversations with leading mathematicians, reflects his views on mathematics. The book describes an extraordinary career of an exceptional man and mathematicians. Strongly recommended to specialists as well as to the general public." EMS Newsletter (1992) "This excellent book is the English edition of the author's autobiography. … This very enjoyable reading is recommended to all mathematicians." Customer Reviews (5)
The recollections of a great mathematician
Light reading!
Light reading!
Quite some autocensorship Still, there are some interesting facts for those who want toknow what a life of a mathematician can involve, and two stars are justlyearned. Perhaps this would have been a better book has it been written morein the spirit of Hardy's Apology, omitting the family matters and focusingon what the title promises.
Excellent! |

A warning to beginners As Weil says at the start of the book, it has few prerequisites in algebra or number theory, except that the reader is presumed familiar with the standard theorems on locally compact Abelian groups, and Pontryagin duality and Haar measures on those groups. This part is not a joke. If you want to really understand class field theory this may be a good book. (I am reliably told it is.) But Weil deliberately avoids using many ideas that are now standard: geometric ideas such as group schemes, and especially cohomological methods. Beginners studying algebraic numbers do not need this book. Weil recommends Hecke ALGEBRAIC NUMBERS for such readers, and that is a terrific book. To learn class field theory today you'd probably do better with and Cassels and Frohlich ALGEBRAIC NUMBER THEORY, which Weil also recommends in a note to the second edition of this book. ...

Editorial Review Product Description From the reviews: "…All of Weil’s works except for books and lecture notes are compiled here, in strict chronological order for easy reference. But the value … goes beyond the convenience of easy reference and accessibility. In the first place, these volumes contain several essays, letters, and addresses which were either published in obscure places (…) or not published at all. Even more valuable are the lengthy commentaries on many of the articles, written by Weil himself. These remarks serve as a guide, helping the reader place the papers in their proper context. Moreover, we have the rare opportunity of seeing a great mathematician in his later life reflecting on the development of his ideas and those of his contemporaries at various stages of his career. The sheer number of mathematical papers of fundamental significance would earn Weil’s Collected Papers a place in the library of a mathematician with an interest in number theory, algebraic geometry, representations theory, or related areas. The additional import of the mathematical history and culture in these volumes makes them even more essential." Neal Koblitz in Mathematical Reviews "…André Weil’s mathematical work has deeply influenced the mathematics of the twentieth century and the monumental (...) "Collected papers" emphasize this influence." O. Fomenko in Zentralblatt der Mathematik

11. Adeles and Algebraic Groups (Progress in Mathematics) by Andre Weil | |
Hardcover: 126
Pages
(1982-09)
list price: US$29.50 Isbn: 3764330929 Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan | |
Editorial Review Product Description This volume contains the original lecture notes presented by A. Weil in which the concept of adeles was first introduced, in conjunction with various aspects of C.L. Siegel’s work on quadratic forms. These notes have been supplemented by an extended bibliography, and by Takashi Ono’s brief survey of subsequent research. Serving as an introduction to the subject, these notes may also provide stimulation for further research. |
