I don't know if this is the right kind of question for here. But, can someone help me find an english translation (a link to a pdf would be nice) of: B. Riemann, "Theorie der Abelschen Funktionen", J. Reine Angew. Math., 54 (1857)

Many Thanks.

I found an English translation here:

Apparently the previous link I gave no longer exists, so here is another link to the same translation: Part I and Part II of the paper, respectively.

I doubt you will find it as a free pdf.

Other possibilities include purchasing an English translation of Bernhard Riemann, Collected Papers which includes it. Or you can double read the original in German and a machine translation into English

Thank you for these links! Wow that machine translation is interesting. When machines can make a readable and accurate translation of Riemann, I would say they will have at last come into their own. Do you have a link to the actual original German paper, as opposed to a transcription of it? – roy smith Apr 22 '11 at 19:33
You can try starting at page 105:101 – Henry Apr 22 '11 at 20:12
Henry: Here is the link to the exact page. (Yes, it's a bit hard to link to specific articles at GDZ...) Alternatively, DigiZeitschriften is easier to link to. – J. M. May 7 '11 at 19:03
