The Legacy of Kurt Mahler cover

Kurt Mahler was born at Krefeld am Rhein in Germany in 1903, and died in Canberra, Australia in 1988. Although he lived outside of Germany from 1933 onwards, his mathematical roots were always in the great school of number theory which flourished in Germany between the two World Wars. Thus it is very fitting that “Documenta Mathematica” should publish this extra volume about the continuing impact of his work today.
