Toward an Art History of Proofs...

Welcome. This is a collection of Proofscape modules I am writing on various historical mathematical works, such as Gauss's Disquisitiones Arithmeticae, Kummer's work on Fermat's Last Theorem, and Hilbert's Zahlbericht.

For now it is a loose (and small, but growing) collection of translations, annotations, explanations, and example explorer widgets ("examplorers"), written to provide help and clarification to students of these classic works.

Eventually, and with the collaboration of others, I would like to see these notes grow into the vision of an "Art History of Proofs", as discussed here.

The Primary Sources

While these notes constitute a commentary or secondary source, the primary sources in question are represented in RMF's Classic Mathematical Literature library.
