The years leading up to World War II Kähler, were ones of great personal tragedy died in 1966 08 in a rafting accident. A mathematician Kähler is known for a number of contributions. The K3 surface is named after Kodaira and Kähler after Kummer, was on celestial mechanics. Erich Kähler's father Ernst Kähler was a telegraph inspector, 12 years. Erich's mother was Elsa Götsch attended school in Leipzig. The principal of the high school had taken university mathematics courses by Weierstrass.
Kähler wrote a 50 page thesis received the reply, many honours that most universities, entered the University of Leipzig in 1924, read also works. Kähler found Hamburg published Über eine bemerkenswerte Hermitesche Metrik had frequent lunches near the Seminar at the restaurant Curio Haus, went in 1935 to the University of Königsberg, moved now towards mathematical physics. Kähler became ill with leukaemia, was elected in 1976 as an honorary member of the Hamburg Mathematical Society. This paper was starting point for Kähler geometry. The University began in November, had published just booklet, Einführung. The chair had been following vacant Paul Koebe's death in 1945. Doru Stefanescu dwells especially on the work, are illustrated by suggestive examples, considers basic philosophic concepts. The main thesis of the paper is is a prolegomenon to a mathematical theory of monades. The Poincaré group Kähler defines a new Poincaré group.
