An Introduction to the Mathematical Theory of the Conduction of Heat in Solids

Nature volume 113, page 742 (24 May 1924) | Download Citation



IN 1906, Prof. Carslaw published a work on “Fourier Series and Integrals and the Mathematical Theory of the Conduction of Heat.” An appreciative notice of this book appeared in NATURE of March 14, 1907, over the initials “G. H. H.” Prof. Carslaw's book has since then reached a second edition, in the form of a very much rewritten work in two volumes. The first volume of the second edition contains the pure mathematical theory, and has been already reviewed in NATURE of April 8, 1922, by Prof. G. H. Hardy. The second volume of the second edition is the subject of this present notice.
