Ted, since I don't know whether the ASA list is a closed one, and the
questons may be of more interest than just to Ms. Frette, I'd ask you to
forward this to the ASA list. --Gene Chase
*THE* Hilbert biography is by Constance Reid, and is called simply
*THE* Cantor biography is by Joe Dauben, and here's the title etc.:
_Georg Cantor : His Mathematics and Philosophy of the Infinite_,
by Joseph Warren Dauben (paperback published 1990).

... on the ASA discussion group.
I would like to read some biographies about physicist Einstein and
mathematicians Cantor and Hilbert.
Are there any biographies about these that are considered to be
THE biography about this person ?
