## The Shaping of Arithmetic after C.F. Gauss's Disquisitiones ArithmeticaeCatherine Goldstein, Norbert Schappacher, Joachim Schwermer Since its publication, C.F. Gauss's Disquisitiones Arithmeticae (1801) has acquired an almost mythical reputation, standing as an ideal of exposition in notation, problems and methods; as a model of organisation and theory building; and as a source of mathematical inspiration. Eighteen authors - mathematicians, historians, philosophers - have collaborated in this volume to assess the impact of the Disquisitiones, in the two centuries since its publication. |
