Mathematical Treasure: Works of Abel and Galois

Frank J. Swetz (Pennsylvania State University)

This 1889 German language publication of selected works of Niels Henrik Abel (1802–1829) and Évariste Galois (1811–1832) is entitled Treatises on the Solution of Algebraic Equations. It contains some of the research papers and correspondence of these short lived mathematical geniuses.

Table of Contents entries for Abel. Note articles from Crelle’s Journal, a major vehicle for Abel’s work. Listings for Galois begin at the bottom of the page and continue to the next page.

The Special Collections staff at the Linderman Library of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, is pleased to cooperate with the Mathematical Association of America to exhibit this and other items from the Library’s holdings in “Mathematical Treasures.” In particular, Convergence would like to thank Lois Fischer Black, Curator, Special Collections, and Ilhan Citak, Archives and Special Collections Librarian, for their kind assistance in helping to make this display possible. You may use these images in your classroom; all other uses require permission from the Special Collections staff, Linderman Library, Lehigh University.
