Publisher Summary Before Gauss considered binary forms in his Disquisitiones Arithmeticae , Joseph-Louis Lagrange had encountered and dealt with the problem of transformation of homogeneous polynomials by linear substitutions of the variables in his two-volume Mecanique analytique . Although hinted at by Gauss in the Disquisitiones Arithmeticae in 1801, invariant theory owed its inception to George Boole's work of 1841. Cayley and Sylvester developed Boole's embryonic idea into a mathematical… Expand
