Collection documents the
career of W.F. Eberlein (1917-1986) through papers consisting largely of
research notes and drafts of published and unpublished articles.
Materials are written in English.
Biographical Note
W.F. Eberlein (1917-1986) held positions at the Institute for Advanced
Study (1947-1948), University of Wisconsin (1948-1955), Wayne State University
(1955-1956), and the University of Rochester (1957-1986). His mathematical
work, largely in analysis, included ergodic theory, mean value theorems,
numerical integration, and functional and harmonic analysis. He also worked on
models of space-time, relativity, and quantum theory, particularly internal
symmetry and spinor analysis.

Scope and Contents
This collection documents the career of W.F. Eberlein through papers
consisting largely of research notes and drafts of published and unpublished
articles. The papers focus chiefly on functional analysis and mathematical
physics, including quantum mechanics and relativity theory. Notes for
Eberlein's teaching are included. There are course notes from Eberlein's
education at the University of Wisconsin and Harvard University (1936-1942).
Also included are correspondence, grant proposals, mimeographed lecture notes,
and reprints.

Forms part of the Archives of American Mathematics.
