In the article 'André Weil As I Knew Him' in the April 1999 issue of Notices of the AMS, Shimura recounts how in 1996 André Weil (then 90 years old) didn't remember a mistake of Minkowski. Specifically, quoting from mid-paragraph:
"... In fact, to check that point, I asked him whether Minkowski was reliable. He said, 'I think so.' At that point I realized that his recollection was faulty, since Minkowski gave an incorrect formula, as Siegel pointed out, and that was known to most experts. ..."
My question is:
Where specifically in Siegel and Minkowski's published works can I find the aforementioned formula (of Minkowski) and observation (of Siegel)?
