## Mathematician

German mathematician who worked in algebra, number theory, analysis and applications of analysis to mathematical physics.

Formulated the ring axioms.

Not to be confused with the physicist Heinrich Friedrich Weber (1843–1912), with whom, extra-confusingly, Heinrich Martin Weber was an almost-exact contemporary.

Neither should be confused with Wilhelm Eduard Weber (1804-1891) who gave his name to the SI unit of magnetic flux.
