During this long period, Galois's text was read, interpreted and recast by a large number of actors who did not agree as to its meaning and mostly construed it through local lenses. Le otto pagine ancora mancanti del manoscritto sono state ritrovate recentemente, ponendo fine a un secolo e mezzo di ricerche. In order to understand the rediscovery of Galois, it must be inscribed in the median time of mathematical practices and usages. Dopo la stampa, il manoscritto della memoria parigina di Abel sulle funzioni trascendenti andò smarrito, e soltanto nel 1952 parte di esso fu ritrovato da V. The isolation Germain worked in, due in substantial part to her difficult position as a woman, was perhaps sufficient that much of this extensive and impressive work may never have been studied and understood by anyone. Rather than limiting this publication to a study of controversy, we would like to show that it is inscribed in a larger context of the redefinition of algebra, which this debate illuminates.
Only at the beginning of the 20th century, when Galois theory entered the realm of teaching in European countries, did it acquire a more unified meaning. Puis les elections a la chaire de mathematiques en 1843 et en 1850-1851, fertiles en peripeties, sont l'occasion d'analyser les relations entre Liouville, Cauchy et Libri. Les cours professes entre 1837 et 1843 dans la chaire de physique generale et mathematique sont presentes dans leur contexte institutionnel et scientifique et les rapports entre Liouville et Dirichlet eclaires a la lumiere des lecons donnees en 1839-1840. First, it analyzes scholarly algebraic practices and the way mathematicians were trained in the nineteenth century to reconstruct the scientific meaning of Galois's research. Although the mathematical sciences were a fairly recent foreign import to England, which can barely be traced back beyond the mid-sixteenth century, by the beginning of the seventeenth century there was a large and growing body of practitioners with a unified view of their subject's identity. The second part of this article goes further to seek a fresh perspective on Galois's short career by analyzing the cultural, social, and institutional dynamics that governed how the mathematical community came to recognize an aspiring mathematician as one of its own. Until the first quarter of the seventeenth century there was a great deal of agreement about the nature of mathematical practice.
Abel's surviving manuscripts and trace a short history of them. Para comprender el redescubrimiento de Galois, debemos inscribirlo en el tiempo mediante las prácticas y los usos matemáticos. Second this article seeks to operate a shift from the writing of biographies of mathematicians to biographies of mathematical texts. Ses méthodes sont également assez différentes de celles de Legendre. Anstatt diese Veröffentlichung auf eine Untersuchung der Kontroverse zu beschränken, möchten wir zeigen, dass sie in einen größeren Kontext der Neubestimmung der Algebra gehört, für die die Debatte ein Indiz darstellt. By reconstructing the social process whereby a young man became an established mathematician at the time, this article shows that Galois's trajectory was far from unusual, and most importantly, that he was not treated differently from other aspiring mathematicians. There is much in these manuscripts beyond the single theorem for Case 1 for which she is known from a published footnote by Legendre.
Drawing on methodology developed by social and cultural historians, it contextualizes Galois's work by situating it in the parisian mathematical milieu of the 1820s and 1830s. Rather than limiting this publication to a study of controversy, we would like to show that it is inscribed in a larger context of the redefinition of algebra, which this debate illuminates. We also present, with some comments, a manuscript that was discovered in London very recently. Indeed, the meaning of a mathematical text is the product of a long social and scientific process, one that, in the case of Galois's text, took over one hundred years. Mathematicians, as well as their patrons and clients, viewed all possible aspects of their work, both theoretical and practical, as being included within their discipline.
Mme Germain avait un plan très élaboré et sophistiqué pour prouver entièrement ce dernier théorème de Fermat. En lugar de restringir esta publicación a un estudio sobre esta controversia, querrÍamos mostrar su inscripción en un contexto más amplio de redefinición de la álgebra, que este debate revela. ResumiElenchiamo e localizziamo i manoscritti di N. La publicación de los trabajos de Galois en la revista Journal de Liouville 1846 fue anunciado durante un debate entre los académicos Libri y Liouville, en 1843. In order to historicize the meaning of Galois's work at the time he tried to earn recognition for his research on the algebraic solution of equations, this paper explores two interrelated questions. In order to understand the rediscovery of Galois, it must be inscribed in the median time of mathematical practices and usages. .
Recently, the eight still missing pages of the manuscript have also been found, thus putting an end to more than a century and a half of investigations. By then, Galois, the aspiring mathematicians who had failed to convince the members of the Academic des sciences, was becoming a legend. The manuscript of Abel's Parisian memoir on transcendental functions was lost after the printing, and only in 1952 part of this manuscript was found by V. Enfin, les cours donnes entre 1851 et 1882 dans la chaire de mathematiques sont etudies dans leur evolution, marquee par la place grandissante de la theorie des nombres. Abel esistenti e tracciamo una loro breve storia. Divisions began to appear, however, and they were often framed in terms of the proper mixture of theory and practice in mathematical education.
Inoltre presentiamo, con qualche commento, il manoscritto che è stato scoperto recentemente a Londra The publication of Galois' works in the Journal de Liouville 1846 was announced during a debate between academicians Libri and Liouville as early as 1843. We list and locate all N. Il aborde trois questions afin de restaurer la dimension historique de cet événement. By emphasizing the historically contingent nature of scientific debates, the paper argues that to historicize the work of a mathematician, we must historicize the scientific world as well. .
