The aim is to show how the ideas formed, and how the proper notions and proofs were found, providing a particularly well-documented illustration of how mathematics develops in general. The book is written for mathematicians, but it does not require any special knowledge of particular mathematical fields.

Roquette studierte in Erlangen, Berlin und Hamburg und wurde 1951 an der Universität Hamburg bei Helmut Hasse promoviert, Ab 1967 ist er Professor an der Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, an der er 1996 emeritiert wurde. Roquette arbeitet über Zahl- und Funktionenkörper und speziell lokale p-adische Körper. Er wandte auch Methoden...
