Differential Equations from the Algebraic Standpoint

Nature volume 131, page 456 (01 April 1933) | Download Citation



THIS book gives a connected account of the author's researches on the algebraic side of the theory of differential equations and forms a welcome addition to the literature of the subject, for this aspect of the theory has received little attention hitherto. About four-fifths of the space is devoted to ordinary and the remainder to partial algebraic differential equations, the treatment broadly speaking following the lines laid down by Kronecker and his successors in the theory of algebraic elimination and the general theory of algebraic manifolds, transcendental equations being excluded from consideration.
