A Course in Mathematical Analysis


    THIS readable and trustworthy translation will be welcome to those who cannot enjoy the original, the merits of which are by this time well known. The typography is unusually good, and is very creditable to all concerned, such symbols as the square of a 1, or even of a′, being printed in a satisfactory way, which English printers might imitate with advantage. There are a few terms here and there which are ungrateful to an English ear; “involutionary” or “involutional” would be more agreeable to analogy than “involutory,” and “nappe” is retained instead of being rendered by “sheet.” But these are trifles, and those of us who have no French can now study a treatise which is eminently lucid and attractive, as well as being up to date and sufficiently rigorous for the purpose it is designed to fulfil.

    A Course in Mathematical Analysis.

    By Édouard Goursat. Translated by E. R. Hedrick. Vol. i. Pp. viii + 548. (London and Boston: Ginn and Co., nd.) Price 16s.
