Helmut Hasse, Hermann Ludwig Schmid and their students in Berlin

  • Chapter

Abstract

In the early post-war years two personalities had substantial influence on the scientific and institutional development of mathematics in Berlin: Helmut Hasse (1898-1979) and Hermann Ludwig Schmid (1908-1956). In the following the authors, former students of Hasse and Schmid, respectively, try to create from a personal point of view a picture of the achievements reached in those most difficult times. For a correct understanding of the general and academic situation in post-war Berlin it seems appropriate to recall the political status of the city.
