Transcript of Nicolas Bourbaki


Nicolas Bourbaki was not a real person. The name is a pseudonym for a group of mainly French mathmeticians that wrote books. And it all began in 1935.
Why that name?
The last name Bourbaki is was the same as a French general who fought in the Franco-German war in 1871.
The group's purpose was to write a rigorous textbook in analysis but soon expanded into presentations of the many branches of algebra.
The first writings started in 1939 with the first volume of "Elements of Mathematics"
