Klein Protokolle

Tuesday, April 17th, 2007

With a grant from the Clay Math Institute Libraries without walls have scanned notebooks of Felix Klein (at the moment they are still labeled Fritz Klein protokolls there, but it seems obvious that they meant Felix Klein). The protokolls cover the mathematical colloquia he held at Göttingen, Erlangen, Munich and Leipzig and they are truly beautifull documents: You will find handwritten abstracts of many famous mathematicians of that time (the protocols are not course notes taken by a listener but short summaries of the lecures by the speakers themselves).
