Jacobi suffered a breakdown from overwork in 1843.
Jacobi was also the first mathematician to apply elliptic functions to number theory, for example, proving the polygonal number theorem of Pierre de Fermat.
It was in analytical development that Jacobi’s peculiar power mainly lay, and he made many important contributions of this kind to other departments of mathematics, as a glance at the long list of papers that were published by him in Crelle’s Journal and elsewhere from 1826 onwards will sufficiently indicate.
