  1. Mr. Weber (in his memoir:Die allgemeinen Grundlagen der Galois'schen Gleichungstheorie; Mathematische Annalen, vol. 43, pp. 521–549, November, 1893 —and in his book:Lehrbuch der Algebra, vol. 1, pp. 441–460, 1895) denotes by the termKörper any closed system whatever of say (Grössen, Elemente or, as I prefer)marks capable of combination without ambiguity by addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (division by 0 alone excluded) in accordance with the ordinaryoperational identities of algebra. I propose the termfield as the English equivalent toKörper. [Indeed thefield of my paper:A doubly infinite system of simple groups: presented August 25, 1893 to the Chicago Congress on Mathematics was exactly Mr. Weber'sendlicher Körper].Google Scholar
  2. Kronecker's term isRationalitätsbereich (realm of rationality). Mr. Weber (Algebra, vol. I, p. 452) proposes to use this term instead of Körper (field) only when in a particular investigation the marks of the field are to be considered as known or rational. This is surely a desirable usage, and I follow it in using in these papers:Concerning transcendentally transcendental functions: the term realm of rationality.Google Scholar
