comment Who said “the naive counting numbers don't exhaust $\Bbb N$”?
@katz Why? I agree with Reeb! He would look at you and say: "One is a naive integer; two is a naive integer; three is a naive integer; and so on. Now, is every member of N a naive integer." And if you said so, "Really? What makes you so sure?" (The point being, "naive integers" need not make a set.)

The quoted recollections of Weil are available in full here.

comment First formulation of the Dedekind and Hasse-Weil conjectures
Happy to help, I think it's fine if I leave it as a comment. Never ask two questions in one :-)

comment First formulation of the Dedekind and Hasse-Weil conjectures
That seems to have been oral. Lang (1995, p. 1302) writes: "In 1950, as far as I know, Hasse had not published his conjecture, but he did publish it in 1954; see his comments on the first page of [Ha 54]." There Hasse writes that he had given this problem to his late student Humbert "towards the end of the 1930s".

comment First formulation of the Dedekind and Hasse-Weil conjectures
Do you require much earlier than Weil Number-theory and algebraic geometry, Proc. Int. Cong. Math. 1950, vol. 2, pp. 90-100, which ends: "I should like to conclude with a brief discussion of a very interesting conjecture, due, I believe, to Hasse (...) we are thus led to consider the product of these zeta-functions for all $\mathfrak p$, which is precisely the function previously defined by Hasse, of which he conjectured that it can be continued analytically over the whole plane, that it is meromorphic, and that it satisfies a functional equation."?

comment Classifying compact homogeneous Kähler manifolds
Also, the flag manifolds are not really "homogeneous Kähler" with respect to the complexified group, as the latter doesn't preserve the metric and 2-form.

You meant to link to this question (and accepted answer), not the one you did.

comment Algorithm for finding eigenfunctions
What is $\partial$? (Some sort of $d$?) What is $\int\partial\phi(a,b)\dots$? (Some sort of Stieltjes integral?) What is $a$? (Some sort of number?) How does $f_a$ depend on it? (Arbitrarily?) Etc.
