TITLE: What we can learn from Dedekind's drafts and how to navigate such a corpus
ABSTRACT: The research that led to Dedekind's 1897 “Über Zerlegungen von Zahlen durch ihre größten gemeinsamen Teiler” and 1900 “Über die von drei Moduln erzeugte Dualgruppe” spanned over 20 years and started as an inquiry on module theory, as he told us himself. Those 20 years of research are documented in Dedekind's archive, kept at the Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen. Going through these incredibly rich documents allows me to follow Dedekind's research process, and to understand how he went from module theory to Dualgruppen. It also showed that said process was very complex and non-linear. Navigating these several hundreds of pages, whose organization appears to be sometimes puzzling, could be challenging. To accompany my historical analysis, I set up a digital edition developed using editorial principles guided by the historical analysis: http://eman-archives.org/Dedekind/. In turn, the edition allowed me to get a better view of the corpus as a whole, and to draw networks of texts that shed lights on the genesis of Dualgruppen. In this talk, I will present how the historical and editorial work helped each other, and allowed for a better understanding of the genesis of Dedekind's Dualgruppen.
