Nature volume 127, page 370 (07 March 1931) | Download Citation



THE monograph under review illustrates in a striking way the great progress made in mathematics in recent years even in so specialised a branch as Analysis Situs, for the bibliography includes nearly three hundred references, almost all to papers published during the last decade. The work is not a text-book, but, as it were, a digest of research work done in the subject since the publication of Veblen's “Analysis Situs” in 1922. Consequently, it makes great demands on the reader's knowledge, and is not suitable as an introduction to the subject; but it is of great importance to the expert in topology, and will prove to be a mine of information for all engaged in research in this field.
