Elements of Algebra for Middle-Class Schools and Training Colleges

    Article metrics

    Abstract

    THIS is a handy book, covering the ground usually occupied by similar treatises on the subject. It is a fairly independent work, keeping near the beaten track as regards results arrived at, but giving these results in many cases by new modes of proof. The chief additional features of interest are in some articles on “Imaginary Quantities,” “Properties of Numbers,” and “Determinants.” We do not like the use of the expression, “It is easily found,” and so on, in a few passages, and we must point out that there are a great many mistakes, not merely typographical ones. These are faults which can easily be rectified in a second edition. Care also should be taken to correct the numerous wrong references.
