Selected Papers on Algebra and Topology by Garrett Birkhoff Contemporary Mathematicians
Hardcover. 632 pages. Dimensions: 10.2in. x 7.1in. x 1.8in.The present volume of reprints are what I consider to be my most interesting and influential papers on algebra and topology. To tie them together, and to place them in context, I have supplemented them by a series of brief essays sketching their historieal background (as I see it). In addition to these I have listed some subsequent papers by others which have further developed some of my key ideas. The papers on universal algebra, lattice theory, and general topology collected in the present volume concern ideas which have become familiar to all working mathematicians. It may be helpful to make them readily accessible in one volume. I have tried in the introduction to each part to state the most significant features of ea ch paper reprinted there, and to indieate later developments. The background that shaped and stimulated my early work on universal algebra, lattice theory, and topology may be of some interest. As a Harvard undergraduate in 1928-32, I was encouraged to do independent reading and to write an original thesis. My tutorial reading included de la Vallee-Poussins beautiful Cours dAnalyse Infinitesimale, Hausdorffs Grundzuge der Mengenlehre, and Frechets Espaces Abstraits. In addition, I discovered Caratheodorys 1912 paper Vber das lineare Mass von Punktmengen and Hausdorffs 1919 paper on Dimension und Ausseres Mass, and derived much inspiration from them. A fragment of my thesis, analyzing axiom systems for separable metrizable spaces, was later published 2. This background led to the work summarized in Part IV.
