Husserl wrote a doctoral thesis on calculus of variations. It does not seem to be available on the Göttinger Digitalisierungs-Zentrum and so far as I have found the online collections of his works are only philosophical. Anyway I'd rather not read the original just now and try to figure out how it relates to the level of other work on the subject at the time. I'd like to find out that someone has already done that.
Claire Ortiz Hill and Jairo José da Silva have written well on Husserl's engagement with actual mathematics. See http://rancho.pancho.pagesperso-orange.fr/Writings.htm
But I do not know if she has written on his doctoral work itself.
I'd especially like to find specifically philosophical discussion of this doctoral work on calculus of variations, but an historic overview would also help. Can anyone here help me?
