Website of the Project: The correspondence of the mathematician Bernoulli
The aim of the project was to merge and digitize the comprehensive edition of the Bernoulli correspondence. Most of the surviving manuscripts on the Bernoulli correspondence are in the possession of the Basel University Library.
- Bernoulli, Daniel I (1700-1782)
- Bernoulli, Johann I (1667-1748)
- Bernoulli, Johann II (1710-1790)
- Bernoulli, Nicolaus I (1687-1759)
- Bernoulli, Nicolaus II (1695-1726)
- Hermann, Jacob (1678-1733)
The TCDH was commissioned to record older typescripts from the office in Basel in full text. The mathematical formulas were recorded in embedded TeX or LaTeX (realised by Martin Sievers).
In 2016, the TCDH also checked the recording of the "Deutsche Inschrift" Volume 86 Halberstadt / Stadt on behalf of Tao.
Developing Software Systems
The software systems we develop together with humanities and cultural scholars are ergonomic and goal-oriented solutions to support individual and dynamic research projects effectively.
Digital editions offer a wide range of options for processing sources scientifically and making them accessible in open access.
Full Text Digitization
High-quality full-text digitization in form of a diplomatic copy is a decisive requirement in order to store basic works in databases and, thus, to make them searchable and connectable.
Implementing Research Projects Digitally
We model text data and multimedia objects, apply our tools and establish procedures, design websites and ensure sustainable research data management.
Open Access, Open Source, Open Data as well as other terms represent a research sector with transparent approaches and freely available results.
We consider our work processes to be an interface between technical expertise, knowledge-based services and humanities research in the range of Digital Humanities.
The TCDH can look back on many years of experience in the field of typography - for print and for publication on the Internet.
