Page 233 - ... enough such articles to fill the space available, and therefore wish to call the attention of authors to this lack and to the fact that, as long as the shortage continues, expository or historical articles of sufficient merit will receive prompt publication. A number of the expository articles which have already been published are available in separate form and are listed for sale on the inside of the back cover of this number of the Annals. The regular subscription price of the Annals is $3.00...

Page 133 - ... shall note later. By allowing all the roots of f(x) outside a Jensen circle to move out to infinity, noting what roots of f'(x) may enter or leave the circle, and counting those within the circle at the end of the process, Walsh concludes that if a Jensen circle has on or within it k roots of f (x) and is not interior to nor has a point in common with any exterior Jensen circle, then it has on or within it not more than k + 1 nor less than k — 1 roots of f'(x). In a paper not yet published...

The oo * curves passing through a given point 0 in a given direction £ haVe associated with them their orthogonal projections in the tangent plane to the surface at 0. The locus of the foci of the osculating parabolas of the associate system is a bicircular quartic with...

Page 233 - According to an agreement between the Mathematical Association of America and the editors of the Annals of Mathematics, the Association contributes to the support of the Annals, and the Annals is supplied to individual members of the Association at one half of the regular price. In consequence of this agreement the volume of the Annals was increased by...

Page 128 - This paper contains some geometric results concerning the relative positions of the roots of a polynomial and those of its derivative. Although not entirely restricted to real polynomials, and although the cubic is especially treated in detail, most of the results here presented are naturally connected with the following theorem of Jensen's : // circles are described whose diameters are the segments joining pairs of conjugate imaginary roots of a real polynomial f(z) , then every non-real root of...
