Indbydelse til foredrag ved:
Gauss, arithmetic, and pure mathematics
Onsdag, den 21. maj 2003, kl. ca. 20
The work of Gauss offers some central keys to a better
understanding of the emergence of pure mathematics in 19th century Germany. Deep
mathematical contributions were joined, in his public and private writings, by
philosophical and methodological reflections that contributed to the emergence
of what is sometimes called "modern" or "classical"
mathematics. The demise of geometry as the paradigmatic mathematical discipline,
the rise of arithmetic in its place, and concomitant changes
