Juanjo José Toboso Flores
Los Congresos Internacionales y la Historia de las Matemáticas: Jean-Gaston Darboux y la geometría diferencial
Supervisor/s: Agustí Reventós Tarrida
Date of defense: 09-09-2015

In 1897 takes place the first International Congress of Mathematicians in the city of Zürich . Since 1900 the congress has carried out more or less continuously every four years. In these conferences we can not only find mathematical papers, but there are also talks about mathematics itself. We will study the lecture that Jean-Gaston Darboux offered in the International Congress of Mathematicians of 1908 in Rome on differential geometry. We will see that this study helps us better understand the ideas of Darboux and the state of the differential geometry of the time.
