Niels Henrik Abel

The exceptional Norwegian mathematician Niels Henrik Abel was born on 5 August 1802. When he died, only 26 years old, he left a large body of work, including the first proof of the general binomial theorem, which had been stated by Newton and Euler. 

We present his life story and links to his works in the Niels Henrik Abel section of this website.
