**Mathematics / History**

**Project:** The term ‘structure’ in mathematical discourse from 1889 to the 1960s. A bibliometric study by using the *Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik*

**Supervisors:** Ralf Krömer / Thomas Heinze / Klaus Thomas Volkert

**Project Summary**

In my Ph.D. project I will focus on the term “structure” in mathematical discourse and I am going to carry out a bibliometric study by using the *Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik*. The yearbook shows that the number of presented papers that include the term and the affected mathematical disciplines have increased. My aim is to analyse the development of this process.
