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another three generations of mathematicians to reveal the true extent of his output as they studied Gauss' extensive unpublished papers and his voluminous correspondence.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. One of Gauss' key successes in astronomy was the prediction of the path of Ceres, leading to its rediscovery in 1801. The original reports about this dramatic course of events appear in Volume 6, published in 1874, which includes all of Gauss' publications on astronomy, book reviews and letters.
