Holmboe, assistant of Hansteen, took Abel under his wings and 'It didn't take [him] long to discover young Abel's extraordinary ability in mathematics. He began by giving him special problems ... The two then started to study together the calculus texts of Euler, ... later the works of .. LaGrange and Laplace. ... [on the suggestion of the Danish mathematician Degen Abel turned to elliptic integrals] ... within a cpouple of years he had in the main completed his theory of elliptic functions. ... [his] "Recherches sur les fonctions elliptiques", his most extensive publication (125 pp. in the 'Oeuvres complètes') ... radically transformed the theory of elliptic integrals to the theory of elliptic functions... The first part of the "Recherches" was published in 'Crelle's Journa;' in September 1827, and Abel completed the second part during the winter. He lived in isolation in Oslo ... and he had no inkling of the interest his memoir had created among European mathematicians. Nor did he know that a competitor had appeared in the field of elliptic functions, until early 1828, ... K.G.J.Jacobi, ... [Abel] then wrote, in rapid succession, a series of papers on elliptic functions, ... Jacobi, on the other hand, wrote only brief notices which did not reveal his methods; these were reserved for his book "Fundamenta Nova theoriae functionum ellepticarum (1829). ... On 28 June 1830, The French Academy of Sciences awarded its Grand Prix to Abel and Jacobi for their outstanding mathematical discoveries..': Idem, vol. VI, p. 474 (Holmboe) 'He was appointed teacher at the Cathedral School in 1818; here he made his greatest contribution to mathematics by discovering and nurturing the genius of his pupil Niels Henrik Abel. Together they explored the whole mathematical literature in a quest in which the pupil soon became the leader. ... After Abel's death Holmboe edited his works at the request of the Government; ... ': Poggendorff vol. I, pp. 2 - 3: Darmstaedter p. 362: Volume 2 contains works that are published here for the first time.: Ad 2) DSB Vol. XIII, pp. 126 - 132: First English edition of the 'Complete text of the work containing the statement and demonstration of Sturm's theorem'. It was originally publ. in the 'Mémoires ...', for 1835, vol. 6, pp. 271 - 318, as 'Mémoire sur la résolution des équations numériques'. Charles François Sturm, 1803 - 1855, mathematics, physics. 'Sturm's Theorem. Although the problem of finding the number of real roots of the equation f(x)=0 had already been encountered by Descartes and by Rolle, it was not investigated systematically until the mid 18th century. Gua de Malves .. Fourier... Cauchy [who offered the first solution, but too elaborate]... Sturm's discovery elicited great excitement, and he became famous as the mathematician who had filled a lacuna in algebra. ... Charles Hermite made the following assessment: "Sturm's Theorem had the good fortune of immediately becoming classic and of finding a place in teaching that it will hold forever. His demonstration, which utilizes only the most elementary considerations, is a rare example of simplicity and elegance."':

He mentions the preparation of ammonium sulphate, describes tobacco, the distillation of vipers and human skull, and describes and illustrates a portable furnace. Vigani is commended by Stahl for his experiments on the preparation of aqua fortis and spirit of salt; Stahl says Vigani worked more with his hands than his head, and criticised some of his theoretical conclusions.': Ferguson, Bibl.

He came to England between 1670 and 1680, ... died about 1714. ...The book is not a systematic treatise, but only an exposition of some methods which he had found best for the making of certain drugs.': Schelenz, p. 485: Not in Krivatsy: The reason for the absence of quire B in Vigani's 'Medulla Chymiae' is unclear.
