# A Course of Modern Analysis

@article{WhittakerACO, title={A Course of Modern Analysis}, author={Edmund Taylor Whittaker and George Neville Watson}, journal={Nature}, volume={97}, pages={298-299} }

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…
