A Course of Modern Analysis

  title={A Course of Modern Analysis},
  author={Edmund Taylor Whittaker and George Neville Watson},
THE treatise now under notice, which appears as a second edition of a former treatise by one of the authors, is in all essential respects a new work. Its scope has been extended in many directions, and very recent developments, of which a substantial number are due to the authors, receive a fair share of attention. The volume now gives a somewhat exhaustive account of the various ramifications of the subject, which are set out in an attractive manner. An unusually complete set of references is… Expand
5 Functions of a CODlplex Variable
This chapter summarizes the rudiments of complex analysis, which often provides major results with little calculation, and the frequency with which it is resorted to is a testimony to its utility. Expand
A Numerical Analyst's Fifteen-Foot Shelf
This article is a proposed list of about 150 essential titles in class A, a laboratory of numerical analysis, with computers, coders, problem analysts, and research mathematicians, divided into five categories, of which four have been split into subcategories. Expand
Zero estimates on group varieties II
'The aim of this article is to give an account of a class of estimates that have in recent years been found useful in the theory of transcendental numbers. As our space is limited, and the estimatesExpand
The Lambert function, the quintic equation and the proactive discovery of the Implicit Function Theorem
One of the problems on which a great deal of focus is being placed today, is how to teach Calculus in the presence of the massive diffusion of Computer Algebra tools and online resources amongExpand
TECHNICAL NOTES AND SHORT PAPERS A Method for the Numerical Evaluation of Certain Infinite Integrals
The solution of many physical problems often necessitates the numerical evaluation of infinite real integrals, a common example being that of solutions obtained with the aid of integral transforms.Expand
The computational economics of Jacques Lesourne
Abstract “Le calcul economique”, by Jacques Lesourne, was first published in 1964. It was then an outstanding volume, containing a clear and general approach to cost-benefit analysis and its linksExpand
Chapter 7 of Ramanujan’s second notebook
In 1929, G. N. Watson and B. M. Wilson agreed to begin the enormous task of editing Ramanujan’s notebooks. Apparently, Wilson was assigned the task of editing Chapters 2-12, while Watson was chargedExpand
The period matrices and theta functions of Riemann
This article deals with four notions due to Riemann: (A) Riemann bilinear relations, (B) Riemann forms, (C) Riemann theta functions and (D) Riemann’s theta formula, in four parts. Following theExpand
An Introduction to Irrationality and Transcendence Methods.
In 1873 C. Hermite [6] proved that the number e is transcendental. In his paper he explains in a very clear way how he found his proof. He starts with an analogy between simultaneous diophantineExpand
A Method for Increasing the Efficiency of Monte Carlo Integration
This paper develops a correlated stratified sampling technique whose efficiency generally exceeds that of crude sampling by a factor n 3, n being the number of correlated ('antithetic') variates taken. Expand
