WILLIAM RALPH WESTROPP ROBERTS was the eldest son of the senior fellow of Trinity College, Dublin, and after a brilliant career as a student in which he gained most of the important prizes in the Mathematical School, he was elected to a fellowship at his father's college in 1882. During the remainder of his life he made many noteworthy contributions to mathematics and in later years planned to publish a work embodying his researches. The present volume is the outcome of that aim, but unfortunately, the author did not live to complete his work.
