Template:Use British English Ludwig Falter (born 15 June 1880 in Steinbuch, Odenwald, date of death unknown) was a German philosopher and mathematician.[1] During World War II, Dr Ludwig Falter worked as a mathematician, cryptanalyst and English interpreter, initially working in the English Referat of In 7/VI, the signals intelligence agency of the Wehrmacht, before and during World War II. He would later work for the General der Nachrichtenaufklärung, the successor organization to the In 7/VI, specifically undertaking analytical research from the summer of 1944 in Group IV.[2]


Falter was son of a farmer (Template:Lang-de) Heinrich Falter at Steinbuch within the Odenwald mountain road. Falter enrolled and registered at the University of Giessen (Gießen) on 30 April 1898, as student of mathematics and was exmatriculated a year later on the 12 May 1899. Falter had another go at the university and enrolled for a second time at Gießen and registered at 28 October 1899 as student of mathematics and de-registered at 19.06.1902. From February 1899 he worked sometimes as a teacher of mathematics at the Pädagogium in Wiesbaden.[3][2]

Little is known about Falter after this period, except that he was promoted to Dr. phil at Gießen with a theses titled: The epistemological foundations of mathematics in Kant and Hume, (Template:Lang-de) on 29 December 1903. His doctoral advisor and mentor was the philosopher, Hermann Siebeck[3][2]
