In fact, after several readings, the reviewer is not clear what definition of a frequency distribution would be consistent with the statements in the text The treatise lacks the profundity of such monumental works as those of Bianchi and Darboux.

Quick links Product Type: The second volume of this work on metric differential geometry continues the discussion of the subject along lines which are a natural extension of those followed in the first volume, which appeared in The author of this book is Professor of Mathematics in the University of Western Australia, and has previously published books on differential geometry and Riemannian geometry and the tensor calculus.

Elementary Vector Analysis with Application to Geometry & Mechanics

Be the first to ask a question about Advanced Vector Analysis. Monthly 38 1 Item is weatherbudn at. He devotes a lengthy chapter to the properties of weatherrburn distributions, and then shows that most of the sampling distributions in common use may be regarded as sums, products or quotients of these variates.

Certain economies are thus effected in the way of simplifying and condensing the presentation of the subject. W V D Hodge. This has resulted in the appearance of several new volumes on differential geometry, in which the methods of the standard works on the subject have been replaced by those which have proved so successful in satisfying modern requirements.


The author does not make the mistake of becoming so immersed in the intricacies of his machinery, or so occupied with juggling his tools, that vecor loses sight of his main undertaking. The author of the book under review has, however, explicitly restricted its scope to be “a mathematical text on the theory of statistics” only, and since well written books of this type also are comparatively scarce, it will be a welcome addition to the already existing texts.

One of the results of the recent work in the theory of relativity has been that a fresh impetus has been given to the study of differential geometry. Other topics are however included, with the result that the two volumes together give an account of most of the principal branches of classical Differential Geometry.

He has not; so far as is known, published any papers on the theory of statistics, and it is thus interesting to see the attitude of a mathematician, with some ability as a text-book writer, who has now turned to statistics as his theme. Most of the content of the book should by now be standard knowledge. It would be a good idea if mathematical teachers, who all too often know nothing about statistics, would read this text; they would find it written simply in their own language, and could not advance the same objections that they are inclined to raise vecttor books written for biologists without mathematical proofs.

Elementary vector analysis : with application to geometry and physics / C. E. Weatherburn.

It is possible that these would have been of greater utility if they had contained the material in its and had not been streamlined so that the application of the technique is immediately obvious, but nevertheless many new examples are there. Great use is made of vector methods, and in this respect the author rather surprisingly claims some originality of treatment. An outstanding feature of the present statistical time is the number of text-books which are being written, and each one from a slightly different point of view.


This is a book every statistician will want in his library.

I agree to the. The Mathematical Gazette 22 While the mathematical analysis is undoubtedly clear it is possible that many will not be able to follow it in detail, and the conclusions of the analysis are not emphasized strongly.

Elementary vector analysis, with application to geometry and physics

Neil marked it as to-read Jul 24, But, whereas the first volume employs, except in the last chapter, on differential invariants, only the algebra of vecyor, the second volume uses also, and to a great extent, the differential and integral calculus of vectors. These methods have however been superseded by the use of tensors, which have the advantage of generality, and are not open to the criticism that they do not lead easily to new results.

Mathematical reviews MR weatherbburn. Science Books Mechanics Books Brand: We will let you know when in stock. The book is based on a course of lectures given by the author, and first impressions are that the subject has been dealt with competently and well, so far as it is taken.

This book is intended “to provide a mathematical text adapted to the needs of the student with an average mathematical equipment, including an ordinary knowledge of the integral calculus.
