French Doctoral Theses from the Entre-deux-guerres Period

MathSciNet now has bibliographic information (metadata) for 263 French doctoral theses from the “Between Two Wars Period”: 1913-1947, courtesy of NUMDAM.  The data includes links to the full texts of these theses.  Some notable mathematicians are included in the collection. 

Here are some examples with links:

Henri Cartan
Claude Chevalley
Georges de Rham
Jean Dieudonné
Wolfgang Doeblin
Charles Ehresmann
Gaston Julia
Pierre Lelong
André Lichnerowicz
Raphaël Salem
Laurent Schwartz
André Weil

To find the listing for an item that comes from contributed data for a thesis, you should go to the main search page of MathSciNet and enter “Thesis” in the “MSC Primary”.  If you want to narrow the results to just those theses coming from NUMDAM, enter “NUMDAM” in the “Anywhere” field.   The biggest source of data and links for theses we have is from ProQuest.  As of this morning, we have metadata for 79,758 ProQuest theses.  (More information about theses in MathSciNet was given in an earlier post.)

We are very grateful to NUMDAM and to ProQuest for their help in providing these data and links to users of MathSciNet.
