mission of this collection is to publish mathematical texts of
historical interest, including re-editions of seminars or
out-of-print texts, mathematical correspondence, unpublished texts,
courses, complete works or selecta.
We encourage the inclusion of historical commentary, to place the
text in a historical as well as a mathematical context. Thus a
collection of articles by an author could be accompanied by
commentary, notes, personal communication or anecdotes, either by
the author, or a specialist in the area.
All areas of mathematics will be considered.
This Collection was created and managed by Pierre Colmez from 1994 to 2016.
