To get the student of dynamics to think in terms of vectors is wholly to the good; for, apart from the greater elegance of vector methods, it gives analgsis a much clearer realization of the physical realities of the problems than is attained by the ordinary analytical methods.
Thank You for submitting your response. Browse our FAQs or submit your query here. As an extension of the first volume and an exposition of the author’s widely published researches, it should make a strong appeal both to the student and to the specialist. A useful reference and elementary treatment.
But at times he is found offering, as rigorous proofs, intuitive geometric arguments which, though enlightening and to the point in their proper place, are lacking in substance. He adheres to the notation of Gibbs. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Most of the content of the book should by now be standard knowledge. 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.
Feb 01, Al Roxburgh rated it it was amazing. The classical notation of Gibbs is employed, symbols for vectors being elementafy in Clarendon type.
Elementary Vector Analysis with Application to Geometry & Mechanics
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.
Professor Weatherburn has taken a rather formal mathematical exposition of the subject, and mathematical students will find his book both interesting and profitable to read. This is primarily a book for a comparatively mature student who already has a working knowledge of methods analysiz statistical investigation, weatyerburn wishes to gain a sounder understanding of their validity, and who has a good command of the calculus or a little more as aanlysis mathematical equipment.
But it is purposely more elementary, less rigorous and less complete. The images represent actual product though color of the image and product may slightly differ.
A very good idea of what the subject is about generally, and of how it is dealt with by modern exponents, can be had from this book by anyone who has a moderate mathematical knowledge and who possibly finds Kendall’s two volumes too formidable and time-consuming. Neil marked it as to-read Jul 24, The branches of the subject discussed are not usually included in an honours course in English universities, but students who have studied the subject to degree standard will find this book an excellent introduction to further work.
Additional Handling Charges are levied for other expenses incurred while delivering to your location. More Mechanics Books From Books. Advanced Vector Analysis by C. Great use is made of vector methods, and in this respect the author rather surprisingly claims some originality of treatment.
An ideal text-book on statistics should effectively co-ordinate a lucid exposition of the basic logic and concepts of statistical theory, with a thorough and, if possible, rigorous elucidation of the auxiliary mathematics needed. When a specialist in vector analysis turns his attention to geometry, it is too often the result that the geometry becomes merely a foil for the aggrandizement of the vector analysis.
Arvind Khwabi marked it as to-read Apr 29, This book is a short introduction to Riemannian Geometry. The treatise lacks the profundity of such monumental works as those of Bianchi and Darboux. No trivia or quizzes yet. In the author’s words this is “a book which will bridge the analysls between the differential geometry of euclidean space and the more advanced work on the differential geometry of generalized space.

The present writer treats geometry more kindly. 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 An able presentation of the elements of the subject by vector methods, a clearly written text with an abundance of good exercises, this book should prove a welcome addition to the literature in differential geometry.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
Elementary vector analysis : with application to geometry and physics / C. E. Weatherburn.
Advanced vector analysis with applications to mathematical physics. It will be a disappointment to some that the book was not constructed along more original and more stimulating lines although this is much to demand of an introductory text.
To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. The book is dedicated to R A Fisher and to the Memory of Karl Pearson, and the former author especially is extensively quoted, both for ideas and for tables of functions, though there is, as suggested reading, a larger proportion than is common in Britain of text of U. It is much more geometrical than Mr Campbell’s [A Course of Differential geometry ], as is natural, and it is of course much more elementary, beginning at the beginning and keeping to three dimensions or less.
The author makes little attempt at mathematically rigorous or precise definitions of his fundamental concepts. To ask other readers questions about Advanced Vector Analysisplease sign up. For students who are quite new to statistics, a good deal would need to be added by the instructor to keep a course based on this book from being quite formal.
The author confines himself entirely to the elementary parts of the subject, but treats them very fully. Published by Open Court Publishing, Illinois first published No mention is made of the idea of power, and hence of why certain very rare events are held to confirm the null hypothesis and others to contradict it.
He keeps it clearly in mind as the first of the two objects he set out to achieve and does exceedingly well by it. No result found for “OK”.
The book presents a fair picture of the major domain of mathematical statistics, and is complete in itself. Another commendable characteristic of the entire work is that the author has not allowed himself to forget that he is, before all, writing a treatise on geometry. This book is a sequel to the author’s Elementary Vector Analysis, which dealt with vector algebra and differentiation with respect to one scalar variable.
