Abstract

I am aware of three English translations of Riemann’s habilitation address. The first one was presented by the eminent British geometer William Kingdon Clifford (1845–1879) in Nature, Vol. VIII, Nos. 183, 184, 1873, pp. 14–17, 36, 37, and is reproduced in W. Clifford, Mathematical papers, edited by Robert Tucker, with an introduction by H.J. Stephen Smith, London, MacMillan and Co., 1882, pp. 55–71.
