    Abstract

    THIS volume is the second edition of the original book, published last year. It is designed for first and second year students in American and Canadian universities. Eleven chapters are devoted to a study of the conies, based upon a definition of the general conic, and in which extensive use is made of the principle of orthogonal projection. Parametric repre sentation is freely employed, but the proof that the general equation of the first degree always represents a straight line is not thoroughly satisfactory.

    Analytic Geometry.
