Chambers's Six-Figure Mathematical Tables


CHAMBERS first published a volume of mathematical tables in 1844. This was enlarged and reset in 1878, and has been re-issued at intervals in the same format. The volume will be, familiar to most people who have, at some time or other, needed to use 7-figure tables. It is now replaced by the volumes under review. They are in no sense a revision, but rather an entirely new publication. For good reasons given in the preface, six-figure values are given in the new tables instead of seven.
