This section contains my mathematical articles and notes, and a few from other mathematicians.
In 2003 I added the classical paper Numbers of solutions of equations in finite fields of André WEIL (with permission of the American Mathematical Society) that had at that time been unavailable.
In 2010 I republished the course on plane curves of second order and their invariants by Ernst FREUDENTHAL and Werner HEINRICH, supplemented in 2011 by the solutions booklet to their exercises. Also in 2011 I added the Bourbaki talk of Enrico BOMBIERI on Counting points on curves over finite fields.
In 2014 appeared my reedition of the SGA d’Orsay, « en hommage à Michel DEMAZURE, Jean GIRAUD, Michel RAYNAUD et Jean-Louis VERDIER » Séminaire de Géométrie Algébrique.
This section is organized into these subareas:
- mathematical recreation
- astronomy & physics
- differential geometry
- algebraic geometry
Timelines of mathematicians (and some physicists and astronomers)
The standard reference on the Web for biographies of mathematicians is the Mac Tutor History of Mathematics Archive.
Latest additions to the timelines are marked red, changes to the previous version are marked blue.
