About this Item

FIRST EDITION. 8 vo. Orig. cloth. viii, 278 pp. A nearly fine copy. The English mathematician, Isaac Todhunter (1820-84; F.R.S., 1862), ".won the Adams Prize of the Royal Society, for an essay, 'Researches.' The subject arose out of a controversy that had been carried on in the 'Philosophical Magazine' some years before, concerning the nature of discontinuity. Todhunter's thesis illuminated some special cases but was obscured by the lack of any adequate definition of continuity." (D.S.B.). Bookseller Inventory # 000134
