This volume commemorates the 125th anniversary of the birth of Hermann Minkowski (1864–1909) by reproducing from the Teubner 1911 edition of his collected works [JFM 42.0023.03] the title pages, photographs, eight articles on the geometry of numbers and on numbers, and a 1909 commemorative speech by D. Hilbert [JFM 40.0036.05]. An appendix by E. Krätzel discusses Minkowski’s work on lattices, continued fractions and diophantine approximation, and quadratic forms and class number, while B. Weissbach treats his work on volumes of convex bodies, polyhedra and solids of constant width.
