A Method of Solving Algebraic Equations

Article metrics


So far as I can ascertain, the method referred to is not known, at least in its complete form. It is a development of a method described by me in a previous paper (“Verb Functions, with Notes on the Solution of Equations by Operative Division”, Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy, vol. xxv., Sec. A, No. 3, April, 1905), which was reviewed in NATURE of April 25, 1905. I give it here as briefly as possible.
