The legacy of Helmut Hasse, consisting of letters, manuscripts and other - pers, is kept at theHandschriftenabteilung of the University Library at Gottin- .. gen.Hassehadanextensivecorrespondence;helikedtoexchangemathematical ideas, results and methods freely with his colleagues. There are more than 8000 documents preserved. Although not all of them are of equal mathematical - terest, searching through this treasure can help us to assess the development of Number Theory through the 1920's and 1930's. Unfortunately, most of the correspondence is preserved on one side only, i.e., the letterssenttoHasse are availablewhereasmanyoftheletterswhichhadbeensentfromhim,oftenha- written, seem to be lost. So we have to interpolate, as far as possible, from the repliestoHasseandfromothercontexts,inorderto?ndoutwhathehadwritten 1 in his outgoing letters. The present article is largely based on the letters and other documents which I have found concerning the Brauer-Hasse-NoetherTheorem in the theory of algebras; this covers the years around 1931. Besides the do- ments from the Hasse and the Brauer legacy in Gottingen, .. I shall also use some letters from Emmy Noether to Richard Brauer which are preserved at the Bryn Mawr College Library (Pennsylvania, USA).

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The Brauer-Hasse-Noether theorem, as it has come to be known, is one of the few for which we have a precise birth date: all evidence points to November 9, 1931 ... . Roquette's account is quite interesting ... . Any mathematician who wants to understand why a number theorist would get excited about a theorem dealing with division algebras will find the issue well explained. I learned a lot by reading it ... ." (Fernando Q. Gouvea, MathDL - Online, October, 2006)

"This fascinating monograph is devoted to the genesis of one of the most famous articles in 20th-century number theory ... . Roquette gives a very clear picture of the structure of the proof and the main ideas involved in it. Thus the text is not just a historical overview but also a valuable piece of mathematical exposition. ... All in All, this is a fascinating case study of the evolution of groundbreaking mathematical ideas." (Tamas Szamuely, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 m)
