Abstract

(1) THE simplified system of vector analysis promoted by Gibbs and Heaviside has met with such general acceptance in Germany that treatises and memoirs on subjects of mathematical physics are now often hardly intelligible to readers who do not possess some familiarity with the notations and processes of the calculus in question. A demand has thus arisen for elementary expositions limited to what is absolutely necessary for physical purposes. The first book on our list, now in its second edition, is written mainly With a view to the electrical applications. It deals in a clear and simple fashion with the fundamental operations, and then passes on to the discussion of vector-fields. An interesting chapter on “tensors,” which have a bearing on the theories of stress and of quadratic moments, is added. The work closes with a few elementary applications to hydrodynamics and electromagnetism. It may be commended as giving in a very brief compass almost all that is of importance to the physical student.
