WHAT is the theory of functions about? This question may be heard now and again from a mathematical student; and if, by way of a pattial reply, it be said that the elements of the theory of functions forms the basis on which the whole of that part of pure mathematics which deals with continuously varying quantity rests, the answer would not be too wide nor would it always imply too much.
