About the Authors
  • The genius of Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777–1855) and the novelty of his work (published in Latin, German, and occasionally French) in areas as diverse as number theory, probability and astronomy were already widely acknowledged during his lifetime. But it took another three generations of mathematicians to reveal the true extent of his output as they studied Gauss' extensive unpublished papers and his voluminous correspondence. This posthumous twelve-volume collection of Gauss' complete works, published between 1863 and 1933, marks the culmination of their efforts and provides a fascinating account of one of the great scientific minds of the nineteenth century. Volume 7, published in 1906, contains some of the most surprising material discovered among Gauss' papers: extensive calculations concerning the motion of Pallas. The volume also includes a reprint of Gauss' 1809 book on orbits, Theoria motus corporum coelestium, followed by his later updates and corrections.
