Approches biographiques de l'"Introduction à l'analyse des lignes courbes algébriques" de Gabriel Cramer

Abstract : The publication in 1750 of the Introduction à l'analyse des lignes courbes algébriques, the only published work by Gabriel Cramer, professor of mathematics at the Geneva Academy, is an important milestone in the history of geometry of curves and algebra. Almost ten years passed between the time when the Genevan wrote the first lines of his treatise on curves in the autumn of 1740 and its actual publication, making it a lifetime achievement.This book has a history, both intellectual and material, which takes place in the scientific, professional, academic and social contexts in which evolve its author and its readers. From the genesis of a handwritten text as a work in progress of which we will follow the evolutions during the process of writing and according to the events of its author's life, to the various mathematicians and historians' readings of the published text which are made in the two centuries following its publication, I would like to write here, insofar as this expression makes sense - which I shall endeavour to demonstrate - a « biography » of Gabriel Cramer's Introduction
