I was reading a dictionary of mathematics and encountered a term "AbbeHelmert Criterion". I got curious about what it was and tried to Google it using both English and my native language, but got no result. Does anybody here know about AbbeHelmert criterion?

No, but my Googlefu is stronger. At Earliest Known Uses of Some of the Words of Mathematics (A) you'll find ABBEHELMERT CRITERION for randomness is named for Ernst Abbe and F. R. Helmert. The criterion is based on the firstorder serial correlation coefficient and, according to H. O. A. Wold & L. Juréen Demand Analysis: A Study in Econometrics p. 332 , “was first proposed by Abbe (1863) and a largesample theory was developed by Helmert (1905).” The articles referred to are Abbe (1863), “Über die Gesetzmässigkeit in der Verteilung der Fehler bei Beobachtungsreihen” in Gesammelte Abhandlungen, 2, 55 – 81. and Helmert (1905) “Über die Genauigkeit der Kriterion des Zufalls bei Beobachtungsreihen,” Sitzungsberichte der Kgl. Preussischen Akad. Dder Wissenschaften 1905, 594512. Abbe’s work is particularly remarkable, coming so many years before the era of modern time series analysis. Compare the entries SERIAL CORRELATION and CORRELOGRAM.which gives an overview and references to check.

How... How did you manage to find that on Google? I have been trying over and over in both language and even with quote marks, it was all in vain.

Some other questions: Do you know about Adams predictorcorrector formula, AdamsBashforth method, and AdamsMoulton method? What are they all about? And what are the full names of people who found those methods and formulas? Also, can this thread's title be changed to "[ASK] Questions About Mathematicians"?
