Books By Author Hermann Weyl
Concept of a Riemann Surface, Paperback / softback (February 2010)
Weyl combined function theory and geometry in this high-level landmark work, forming a new branch of mathematics and the basis of the modern approach to analysis, geometry, and topology.
Philosophy of Mathematics and Natural Science, Paperback (April 2009)
Examines how advances in philosophy were led by scientific discoveries - the more humankind understood about the physical world, the more curious we became. Drawing on work by Descartes, Galileo, Hume, Kant, Leibniz, and Newton, this book helps readers understand science through the lens of philosophy.
Mind and Nature, Hardback (March 2009)» View all books by Hermann Weyl
A collection of the author's general writings on philosophy, mathematics, and physics. It includes the author's exposition of his synthesis of electromagnetism and gravitation.

Author Biography - Hermann Weyl
Along with his fundamental contributions to most branches of mathematics, Hermann Weyl (1885-1955) took a serious interest in theoretical physics. In addition to teaching in Zurich, Gottingen, and Princeton, Weyl worked with Einstein on relativity theory at the Institute for Advanced Studies. Hermann Weyl: The Search for Beautiful Truths One of the most influential mathematicians of the twentieth century, Hermann Weyl (1885-1955) was associated with three major institutions during his working years: the ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), the University of Gottingen, and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. In the last decade of Weyl's life (he died in Princeton in 1955), Dover reprinted two of his major works, The Theory of Groups and Quantum Mechanics and Space, Time, Matter. Two others, The Continuum and The Concept of a Riemann Surface were added to the Dover list in recent years. In the Author's Own Words: "My work always tried to unite the truth with the beautiful, but when I had to choose one or the other, I usually chose the beautiful." "We are not very pleased when we are forced to accept mathematical truth by virtue of a complicated chain of formal conclusions and computations, which we traverse blindly, link by link, feeling our way by touch. We want first an overview of the aim and of the road; we want to understand the idea of the proof, the deeper context." "A modern mathematical proof is not very different from a modern machine, or a modern test setup: the simple fundamental principles are hidden and almost invisible under a mass of technical details." - Hermann Weyl Critical Acclaim for Space, Time, Matter: "A classic of physics ... the first systematic presentation of Einstein's theory of relativity." - British Journal for Philosophy and Science
