Articles during this quantity are in keeping with talks given on the Gauss-Dirichlet convention held in Göttingen on June 20-24, 2005. The convention venerated the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the demise of C.-F. Gauss and the 2 hundredth anniversary of the delivery of J.-L. Dirichlet. the amount starts with a definitive precis of the existence and paintings of Dirichlet and maintains with 13 papers via top specialists on examine subject matters of present curiosity in quantity thought that have been at once prompted via Gauss and Dirichlet. one of the themes are the distribution of primes (long mathematics progressions of primes and small gaps among primes), type teams of binary quadratic kinds, numerous facets of the idea of $L$-functions, the speculation of modular kinds, and the research of rational and necessary ideas to polynomial equations in different variables. Titles during this sequence are co-published with the Clay arithmetic Institute (Cambridge, MA).

In the preface to his tables Canon arithmeticus of 1839, Jacobi thanks Dirichlet for his help. He might have extended his thanks to the Dirichlet family. 2], p. 57). 2], p. 99). Dirichlet got a history of illness from Jacobi’s physician, showed it to the personal physician of King Friedrich Wilhelm IV, who agreed to the treatment, and recommended a stay in the milder climate of Italy during wintertime for further recovery. The matter was immediately brought to the King’s attention by the indefatigable A.

In June 1844, Jacobi returned to Germany and got the “transfer to the Academy of Sciences in Berlin with a salary of 3000 talers and the permission, without obligation, to give lectures at the university” ([P], p. 27). Dirichlet had to apply twice for a prolongation of his leave because of serious illness. Jacobi proved to be a real friend and took Dirichlet’s place at the Military School and at the university and thus helped him to avoid heavy financial losses. In spring 1845 Dirichlet returned to Berlin.
