Although he spent most of his working life in Zurich, Switzerland and later in Princeton, he taught traditional mathematics at the University of Göttingen. It was raised by David Hilbert and Hermann Minkowski.

Weyl’s main areas of study were theoretical physics and number theory. Weyl became one of the people who influenced the most scientists of the 20th century with his work. He was also an important member of the Institute for Advanced Study during its active years.

Weyl has published his works in some general fields of study, such as technique and space, time, matter, philosophy, logic, symmetry and history of mathematics. He was also one of the first to consider the laws of Electromagnetism together with the General theory of relativity.
