Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
- His supervisor was Graf, which suggests that Gubler received his doctorate from the University of Bern.
- In 1896 Gubler habilitated as Privatdozent at the University of Zürich with the paper Über ein discontinuirliches Integral Ⓣ(On a discontinuous integral) .
- At the university, Gubler mainly lectured on algebraic analysis, number theory, higher algebra, planar and spherical trigonometry, integral calculus, and methodology of mathematics teaching at secondary schools.
- Gubler's research interest was in the theory of Bessel functions, following the school of thought established by Schläfli's student Graf.
- Together with Graf, Gubler published Einleitung in die Theorie der Bessel'schen Funktionen Ⓣ(Introduction to the theory of Bessel functions) (1898-1900).
- Gubler co-founded the Swiss Society of Mathematics Teachers in 1901.
- Gubler joined the enlarged organising committee of the first International Congress of Mathematicians in December 1896.
- Gubler attended both the 1904 ICM in Heidelberg and the 1908 ICM in Rome, but did not give any talks.
