Abstract

Historians of science have long considered the concept of the "research school" as a potent analytical construct for understanding the development of the laboratory sciences. Unfortunately, their definitions fall short in the case of mathematics. Here, a definition of " mathematical research school" is proposed in the context of a case study of algebraic work associated with the University of Chicago's Department of Mathematics from the University's founding in 1892 through 1945. © 2003 Elsevier Inc.
