Abstract [en]

Christian Goldbach is today most famous for his hypothesis on even numbers, but he had many other strings to his bow. In a Swedish textbook on geometry by Anders Gabriel Duhre (1721) Goldbach is honoured for his theory of infinite series. Duhre also remarks that in Stockholm, in 1719, Goldbach had published a thesis on the sums of certain series. Most of the thesis is also translated into Swedish in Duhre's book. Goldbach's printed booklet on series was rediscovered in 2009-in fact for the second time. It is bound together with other contemporary Swedish scientific texts. My talk will give more on the history of the booklet and bring light to some parts of Goldbach's theory.
