Publishing during German occupation of France. I: The case of Jacques Feldbau and the Académie des Sciences. (Publier sous l’occupation. I: Autour du cas de Jacques Feldbau et de l’Académie des Sciences.) (French) Zbl 1181.01036

The author investigates how censorship during the German occupation of France (1940–1944) affected French mathematicians who were declared Jewish by the “Statut des juifs” (1940), and the strategies these mathematicians then developed to publish their papers. Special attention is paid to works of Jacques Feldbau (1914–1945), André Bloch (1893–1948), Laurent Schwartz (1915–2002), and Felix Pollaczek (1892–1981). Bibl. 81 items.
