The books have grown out of an interest in Grassmann's work over the past four decades. There is something fascinating about the beauty with which the mathematical structures Grassmann discovered (invented, if you will) describe the physical world, and something also fascinating about how these beautiful structures have been largely lost to the.

Hermann Günther Graßmann was one of the most remarkable personalities in 19 th-century science.A "small-town genius", he developed a groundbreaking n-dimensional algebra of space and contributed to a revolution in the understanding of mathematics.

On the occasion of the th anniversary of the birth of Hermann Graßmann (), an interdisciplinary conference was held in Potsdam, Germany, and in Graßmann's hometown Szczecin, Poland.

The idea of the conference was to present a multi-faceted picture of Graßmann, and to uncover the complexity of the factors that were responsible for his creativity. • Among the first of them was Hermann Hankel (), a student of Bernhard Riemann ().

“Roughly 10 percent of this book [of ] was devoted to Grassmann’s system, on which Hankel bestowed much praise. Hankel’s book was influential ” (M. Crowe, A History of Vector Analysis, ). The exterior algebra was first introduced by Hermann Grassmann in under the blanket term of Ausdehnungslehre, or Theory of Extension.

This referred more generally to an algebraic (or axiomatic) theory of extended quantities and was one of the early precursors to the modern notion of a vector space. of Hermann Grassmann (–) in his book Ausdehnungslehre fromand the thoroughly revisedversion,whichnowexistsinanEnglish translation [20] from Grassmann worked flurry of books advocating the very effective use of the exterior algebra and its derivation, the Clifford algebra, in physics, engineering, and computer.

This book (written in German) describes the life and mathematical achievements of Hermann Günther Grassmann (). In the first chapter, the author presents Grassmann's life from his childhood up to his death, a life played out on the background political, social and cultural situation in Germany during the first half of the 19th century.

Hermann Günther Grassmann, (born ApStettin, Prussia [now Szczecin, Pol.]—died Sept. 26,Stettin, Ger.), German mathematician chiefly remembered for his development of a general calculus of vectors in Die lineale Ausdehnungslehre, ein neuer Zweig der Mathematik (; “The Theory of Linear Extension, a New Branch of Mathematics”).

The Prussian schoolmaster Hermann Grassmann (–77) taught a range of subjects including mathematics, science and Latin and wrote several secondary-school textbooks.

Although he was never appointed to a university post, he devoted much energy to mathematical research and developed revolutionary new insights. The book, intended ‘to critically appreciate and explain the life and work of Hermann Gunther Graßmann ()’, does it in a clear and well documented way.

The book is richly illustrated (47 figures) and completed with chronology of Graßmann’s life and an extensive bibliography on him (16 pages).” (Roman Duda, Zentralblatt. Hermann Grassmann (Author) › Visit Amazon's Hermann Grassmann Page.
