THE MODERN MATHEMATICAL SERIES.
LUCIEN AUGUSTUS WAIT,
(Senior Professor of Mathematics in Cornell University,)
This series includes the following works:
ANALYTIC GEOMETRY. By J. H. TANNER and JOSEPH ALLEN.
DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUS. By JAMES MCMAHON and VIRGIL SNYDER.
INTEGRAL CALCULUS. By D. A. MURRAY.
DIFFERENTIAL AND INTEGRAL CALCULUS. BY VIRGIL SNYDER and J. I. HUTCHINSON.
ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA. By J. H. TANNER.
ELEMENTARY GEOMETRY. By JAMES MCMAHON.
The Analytic Geometry, Differential Calculus, and Integral Calculus (published in September of 1898) were written primarily to meet the needs of college students pursuing courses in Engineering and Architecture; accordingly, practical problems, in illustration of general principles under discussion, play an important part in each book.
These three books, treating their subjects in a way that is simple and practical, yet thoroughly rigorous, and attractive to both teacher and student, received such general and hearty approval of teachers, and have been so widely adopted in the best colleges and universities of the country, that other books, written on the same general plan, are being added to the series.
The Differential and Integral Calculus in one volume was written especially for those institutions where the time given to these subjects is not sufficient to use advantageously the two separate books.
The more elementary books of this series are designed to implant the spirit of the other books into the secondary schools. This will make the work, from the schools up through the university, continuous and harmonious, and free from the abrupt transition which the student so often experiences in changing from his preparatory to his college mathematics.
