Abstract

After Gauss died in 1855 mathematicians who looked at his unpublished papers were astonished to discover how much he had known and never revealed. His sympathy for the work of Bolyai and Lobachevskii, for example, was decisive in awakening the first positive readings of their work on the new, non-Euclidean, geometry.
