The article deals with the transmission and spread of the mathematical theories originated by German mathematicians in China during the first half of the 20th century. The introduced mathematical knowledge are as following: C. Gauss'Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, the drawing of the regular 17-polygon and the discriminance of the drawing geometrical figures by the circle and line methods of elementary geometry, and logarithm table; the real number theories of R. Dedekind and G. Cantor; F. Klein's classification of geometry under the point of view of the transformation group, the classic problems of Doubling The Cube, Trisecting The Angle, and Squaring The Circle, and the mathematics education thought; D. Hilbert's fundamental geometry, algebraic field and ideal number theories. Some other mathematical knowledge originated from Germany are also introduced into China.?


Description Includes discussion of the work of Gauss, Dedekind, Cantor, and Hilbert.
