Person: Weiler, Adolf
Adolf Weiler was a Swiss mathematician. His research interests lay in Steiner geometry.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Upon his return to Switzerland, Weiler first worked as a mathematics lecturer at the Ryffel Institute in Stäfa (canton Zürich).
 Weiler also habilitated as Privatdozent at both the Polytechnic and the University of Zürich.
 At the beginning of the 20th century Weiler supervised five doctoral students in total, but none of them became influential mathematicians.
 Weiler's research interests lay in Steiner geometry; in particular, he was interested in complexes and congruencies of rays.
 Weiler joined the organising committee of the first International Congress of Mathematicians in December 1896, but he did not have a specific position and is not mentioned in the committee minutes (except for the attendance records).
Born 27 December 1851, Winterthur, Zürich canton, Switzerland. Died 1 May 1916, Zürich, Switzerland.
