Mathematics at the Brno German Technical University

The German Technical University in Brno (1849-1945) represents a typical example of Austrian higher technical educational institution. It was transformed from Technical College into Technical University during the years 1849-1873 and it became an important centre of mathematical life in Austria at the beginning of 20th century. We can mention a lot of Austrian and German mathematicians from Graz, Prague, and Vienna who came to Brno, nevertheless, many of them used the first opportunity to return to their home universities. Teachers of mathematics and physics founded a mathematico-physical society (Mathematisch-Physikalische Gesellschaft) in 1905 and more than 60 lectures were held in Brno until 1914. The list of Brno speakers includes the names like G. Hamel, E. Fischer, H. Tietze, H. Hahn, G. Jaumann, P. Ehrenfest, and R. von Mises.
