The Mathematical Papers of Sir William Rowan Hamilton

Nature volume 128, pages 167170 (01 August 1931) | Download Citation



THE publication of the mathematical papers of Sir William Rowan Hamilton, to whom no one will deny the title of greatest of Irish mathematicians, is a notable event. This is the first of the four volumes which are expected to be published, and the only regret that its appearance can arouse is that it did not appear until sixty-five years after Hamilton's death and more than a hundred years after some of its contents were written.
