Talk:Emil Artin

I basically disapprove of too much of this categorising of mathematicians by nationality. In Artin's case, I don't see how he is 'German'. Austrian or even American, yes. I suggest simply not trying to add nationality in the many cases where national identification is problematic.

Well, I have been looking into this some more. For the moment I'll add to the nationalities, as a solution. Charles Matthews 10:03, 18 Dec 2004 (UTC)

It's far more sensible (better?) to categorise mathematicians by field and period, as far as I can see. However, if you don't give him any nationality then it means he is inaccessible from e.g. "Austrian people" which also seems wrong? VivaEmilyDavies 23:15, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)
This article is badly written. It seems to focus more on Artin's wife Natascha, rather than on Artin himself.

Wikipedia has an obsession with Jews. Why is it that one should care about Natascha in the first place and secondly, how does it matter what her nationality was. (talk) 15:40, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Strange sentence[edit]

"Artin himself was not Jewish, but was dismissed from his university position in 1937" what that means?? I cannot find any relationship between two part of sentence. --- ALM 14:15, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

That is a strange sentence. I thought he was dismissed because he had a Jewish grandfather or something like that. This should be explained rather than left in such a confused state. Michael Hardy (talk) 12:39, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
He was dismissed because he was married to a jewish woman. --SiriusSeverus (talk) 04:07, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

This is the best biography I've yet read on Wikipedia: why is it rated Start-Class? --Pawyilee (talk) 04:36, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

I fully agree to this judgement on the article. I like especially that it refers to Artin's sense of elegance, which he was able to inherit to his whole school of scolars, which by the way is fully appreciated by the French school of Nicolas Bourbaki (this french school should be never forgotten, since its sense for elegance parallels at least that of the american universities). Except for Ernst Witt, a deep mathematician with tremendous results, but a lousy teacher. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:48, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Austrian-Armenian mathematician[edit]

What does this expression mean? --Max Shakhray (talk) 01:44, 25 February 2010 (UTC)


What are the sources for this section? --Max Shakhray (talk) 09:24, 11 November 2010 (UTC)


There are articles on Miss Hel Braun in the German and Portuguese wikipedias, but not in the English. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:24, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
