THIS excellent treatise is a revised and considerably enlarged second edition of the similar treatise brought out some few years since under the joint editorship of Messrs. Frost and Wolstenhohne. The engrossing duties consequent upon Mr. Wolstenholme's holding the post of Professor of Mathematics at Cooper's Hill, have prevented his taking part in the bringing out of the present work. Great additions have been, and are being, made in this subject, as may be inferred from the fact that this first volume consists of 422 octavo pages, and even in this space many modes of treatment are omitted. “We cannot, however,” writes Mr. Frost, “in a volume of moderate compass, pretend to include all the dual results to which our equations might give rise, but must confine ourselves to a development of the methods most generally useful.”
