Search Results for Series
Biographies
- Nina Bari (1901-1961)
- In fact, it was then that she first began to study the uniqueness problem for trigonometric series.
- She undertook research on the theory of trigonometrical series and her major results were announced in her first paper Sur l'unicite du developpement trigonometrique Ⓣ published by the Academie des Sciences in Paris in 1923.
- Already this first piece of work by Nina Bari testified to her great mathematical talent, since it included the solution of several very difficult problems in the theory of trigonometric series that had lately been engaging the attention of many outstanding mathematicians.
- Her numerous papers exerted a great influence on the development of such fundamental branches of the theory of functions as the theory of trigonometric series, orthogonal series and bases, etc.
- Several of her investigations are rightly regarded as classics, for example her papers on the theory of uniqueness for trigonometric series and on the superpositions of functions.
- Let us mention in particular her paper The uniqueness problem of the representation of functions by trigonometric series (Russian) which she published in 1949.
- an exhaustive review, in many cases accompanied by complete proofs, of the existing results in the theory of uniqueness of representation of functions by trigonometric series.
- In [',' D E Cameron and J Spetich, Nina Karlovna Bari, in L S Grinstein and P J Campbell (eds.), Women of Mathematics (Greenwood, Westport, Conn., 1987), 6-12.','1] her final publication, a 936-page research monograph on trigonometric series, is described as follows:-
.
- It has become a standard reference for mathematicians specializing in the theory of functions and the theory of trigonometric series.
- The fifteen chapters of the book are: Basic concepts and theorems; Fourier coefficients; Convergence of a Fourier series at a point; Fourier series of continuous functions; Convergence and divergence of a Fourier series on a set; "Correcting" a function on a set of small measure; Summability of Fourier series; Conjugate trigonometric series; Absolute convergence of Fourier series; Sine and cosine series with decreasing coefficients; Lacunary series; Convergence and divergence of general trigonometric series; Absolute convergence of general trigonometric series; The problem of uniqueness of the expansion of a function in a trigonometric series; and Representation of functions by trigonometric series.
- Bari also wrote textbooks for use in teaching training institutes such as Higher Algebra (1932) and The Theory of Series (1936).
- Antoni Zygmund (1900-1992)
- Aleksander Rajchman was interested in the theory of trigonometric series.
- This gave Zygmund a life-long interest in the trigonometric series.
- from the University of Warsaw in 1923 for a dissertation on the Riemannian theory of trigonometric series written under Aleksander Rajchman's supervision.
- Among other topics, he worked on summability of numerical series, summability of general orthogonal series, trigonometric integrals, sets of uniqueness, summability of Fourier series, differentiability of functions, smooth functions, approximation theory, absolutely convergent Fourier series, multipliers and translation invariant operators, conjugate series and Taylor series, lacunary trigonometric series, series of independent random variables, random trigonometric series, the Littlewood-Paley, Luzin and Marcinkiewicz functions, boundary values of analytic and harmonic functions, singular integrals, partial differential equations and interpolation operators.
- He studied topics such as Riemann summability, differentiability properties of trigonometric series and sets of uniqueness.
- For example in 1926 he published six papers in Mathematische Zeitschrift in French: Contribution a l'unicite du developpement trigonometrique Ⓣ; Sur la theorie riemannienne des series trigonometriques Ⓣ; Sur la possibilite d'appliquer la methode de Riemann aux series trigonometriques sommables par le procede de Poisson Ⓣ; Sur les series trigonometriques sommables par le procede de Poisson Ⓣ; Sur un theoreme de la theorie de la sommabilite Ⓣ and Une remarque sur un theoreme de M Kaczmarz Ⓣ.
- The joint Zygmund-Paley work played an important role in Zygmund's book Trigonometric Series (1935).
- Each volume of the series [Monografie Mat.] published so far represents an important event in the development of mathematical research, and the present volume in this respect is second to none of its predecessors.
- If one looks through the long list of books on Fourier series one cannot help feeling that even the bulkiest of them are far from giving an adequate picture of the present status of the field.
- The non-existence of a monograph giving such a picture was very badly felt not only by beginners but also by specialists, and the failure of so many attempts to write a real book on Fourier series created an impression that the task was almost hopeless.
- The author of the present monograph completely succeeded in dispelling this "inferiority complex" and produced a book which not only introduces the reader into the immense field the theory of Fourier series but at the same time almost imperceptibly brings him to the latest achievements, many of them being due author himself.
- Surely, Antoni Zygmund's "Trigonometric series" has been, and continues to be, one of the most influential books in the history of mathematical analysis.
- Generations of mathematicians from Hardy and Littlewood to recent classes of graduate students specializing in analysis have viewed "Trigonometric series" with enormous admiration and have profited greatly from reading it.
- In light of the importance of Antoni Zygmund as a mathematician and of the impact of "Trigonometric series", it is only fitting that a brief discussion of his life and mathematics accompany the present volume, and this is what I have attempted to give here.
- The general part of the book is followed by three chapters, one on entire and meromorphic functions, one on elliptic functions, and one on G(s), Z(s) and Dirichlet series.
- The purpose of these notes is to present those aspects of trigonometric interpolation which resemble the theory of Fourier series.
- Mikhail Iosiphovich Kadets (1923-2011)
- Baltaga, who gave the course on mathematical analysis, drew Kadets' attention to the question of infinite-dimensional extensions of the theorem of Steinitz on conditionally convergent series.
- From 1965, Kadets worked at the Kharkov State Academy of Municipal Economy as well as at Kharkov University where he gave courses on Functional Analysis and, in particular, high powered courses on Banach spaces such as 'Series in Banach spaces', 'Biorthogonal systems and bases', 'Theory of renormings' and similar specialist topics related to his research interests.
- The two Kadets, father and son, coauthored the book Rearrangements of series in Banach spaces (Russian) (1988).
- The "sum-set" of a series will mean the set of all sums of convergent rearrangements of the series.
- Steinitz's theorem says that if ∑xn is a convergent series in a finite-dimensional Banach space X, with sum s, then its sum-set is a linear subset of X ..
- In particular, a result of V M Kadets states that every infinite-dimensional space contains series with nonconvex sum-set.
- The book also includes some of the theory of unconditionally convergent series (for which, of course, rearrangement introduces no new points).
- The two authors published Series in Banach spaces.
- Series of scalars, vectors, or functions are among the fundamental objects of mathematical analysis.
- When the arrangement of the terms is fixed, investigating a series amounts to investigating the sequence of its partial sums.
- In this case the theory of series is a part of the theory of sequences, which deals with their convergence, asymptotic behaviour etc.
- The specific character of the theory of series manifests itself when one considers rearrangements (permutations) of the terms of a series, which brings combinatorial considerations into the problem studied.
- The phenomenon that a numerical series can change its sum when the order of its terms is changed is one of the most impressive facts encountered in a university analysis course.
- The present book is devoted precisely to this aspect of the theory of series whose terms are elements of Banach (as well as other topological linear) spaces.
- The first is to characterise those series in a given space that remain convergent (and have the same sum) for any rearrangement of their terms; such series are usually called unconditionally convergent.
- The second problem is, when a series converges only for certain rearrangements of its terms (in other words, converges conditionally), to describe its sum range, i.e.
- His interests are very similar to those of his father, namely Banach space theory, in particular the study of sequences and series, bases, vector-valued measures and integration, isomorphic and isometric structures of Banach spaces, and operators in Banach spaces.
- Madhava (1350-1425)
- In [',' T Hayashi, T Kusuba and M Yano, The correction of the Madhava series for the circumference of a circle, Centaurus 33 (2-3) (1990), 149-174.','10] Rajagopal and Rangachari put his achievement into context when they write:-
.
- Madhava discovered the series equivalent to the Maclaurin expansions of sin x, cos x, and arctan x around 1400, which is over two hundred years before they were rediscovered in Europe.
- This is discussed in detail in [',' D Gold and D Pingree, A hitherto unknown Sanskrit work concerning Madhava’s derivation of the power series for sine and cosine, Historia Sci.
- In [',' R C Gupta, The Madhava-Gregory series, Math.
- Jyesthadeva describes Madhava's series as follows:-
.
- This is a remarkable passage describing Madhava's series, but remember that even this passage by Jyesthadeva was written more than 100 years before James Gregory rediscovered this series expansion.
- Perhaps we should write down in modern symbols exactly what the series is that Madhava has found.
- Thus the series is
.
- which is equivalent to Gregory's series
.
- Now Madhava put q = π/4 into his series to obtain
.
- and he also put θ = π/6 into his series to obtain
.
- which can be obtained from the last of Madhava's series above by taking 21 terms.
- Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that Madhava gave a remainder term for his series which improved the approximation.
- He improved the approximation of the series for π/4 by adding a correction term Rn to obtain
.
- It is thought that the way that he found these highly accurate tables was to use the equivalent of the series expansions
.
- Jyesthadeva in Yukti-Bhasa gave an explanation of how Madhava found his series expansions around 1400 which are equivalent to these modern versions rediscovered by Newton around 1676.
- Charles Whish (1795-1833)
- Whish discovered that certain Hindu texts contained approximations to π which had been found using series expansions.
- For example Hyne wrote [',' U K V Sarma, V Bhat, V Pai and K Ramasubramanian, The discovery of Madhava series by Whish: an episode in historiography of science, Ganita Bharati 32 (1) (2010), 115-126.','14]:-
.
- the Hindus never invented the series; it was communicated with many others, by Europeans, to some learned Natives in modern times ..
- Although Whish believed at first that these series had been found by the Hindus, his two colleagues made him change his opinion.
- The following written by Warren shows this [',' U K V Sarma, V Bhat, V Pai and K Ramasubramanian, The discovery of Madhava series by Whish: an episode in historiography of science, Ganita Bharati 32 (1) (2010), 115-126.','14]:-
.
- in Mr Hyne's opinion the Hindus never invented the series referring in the Quadrature of the Circle which were found in their possession in various parts of India; and that Mr Whish, from whom he had obtained some of those which were communicated to the Madras Literary Society, after having first expressed a belief that they were indigenous, had subsequently reasons for thinking them entirely modern, and derived from the Europeans; observing that not one of the Jyautish Sastras who used these Rules, were capable of demonstrating them.
- So at this stage Whish, Warren and Hyne believed that the series must have been communicated to the Hindus by Europeans because the Hindus who told them about the series were not able to prove that the results were correct.
- Whish had been convinced by his older colleagues to change his view and believe that the series had been given to the Hindus by Europeans, but he reverted to his earlier opinion when he discovered proofs of the results in the Yuktibhasa.
- He published a now famous paper On the Hindu Quadrature of the Circle, and the Infinite Series of the Proportion of the Circumference to the Diameter Exhibited in the Four Sastras, the Tantra Sangraham, Yucti Bhasha, Carana Padhati, and Sadratnamala which was published in the Transactions of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland in 1834.
- Having thus submitted to the inspection of the curious eight different infinite series, extracted from Brahmanical works for the quadrature of the circle, it will be proper to explain by what steps the Hindu mathematician has been led to these forms, which have only been made known to Europeans, through the method of fluxions, the invention of the illustrious Newton.
- it is a fact which I have ascertained beyond a doubt, that the invention of infinite series of these forms has originated in Malabar, and is not, even to this day, known to the eastward of the range of Ghats which divides that country, called in the earliest times Ceralam, from the countries of Madura, Coimbatore, Mysore, and those in succession, to that northward of these provinces.
- A further account of the Yuktibhasa, the demonstrations of the rules for the quadrature of the circle by infinite series, with the series for the sines, cosines, and their demonstrations, will be given in a separate paper.
- It seems that these findings first came to light in 1834 when Charles Whish published a paper in the 'Transactions of the Royal Asiatic Society' entitled "On the Hindu quadrature of the circle and the infinite series of the proportion of the circumference to the diameter exhibited in the four sastras, the Tantrasangraham, Yukti Bhasha, Caruna Paddhati, and Sadratnamala".
- One example I can give you relates to the Indian Madhava's demonstration, in about 1400 A.D., of the infinite power series of trigonometrical functions using geometrical and algebraic arguments.
- The matter resurfaced in the 1950s, and now we have the Sanskrit texts properly edited, and we understand the clever way that Madhava derived the series without the calculus; but many historians still find it impossible to conceive of the problem and its solution in terms of anything other than the calculus and proclaim that the calculus is what Madhava found.
- James Stirling (1692-1770)
- The terms of the Snell Exhibitions is described in [',' I Tweddle, James Stirling: this about series and such things (Edinburgh, 1988).','3]:-
.
- Tweddle [',' I Tweddle, James Stirling: this about series and such things (Edinburgh, 1988).','3] notes that a student with the name 'James Stirling' matriculated at the University of Edinburgh on 24 March 1710, did not graduate, and has a signature which is similar to that of the mathematician.
- This book is a treatise on infinite series, summation, interpolation and quadrature.
- One of the main aims of the book was to consider methods of speeding up the convergence of series.
- As an example of the problem he is trying to solve Stirling gives the example of the series ∑ 1/[',' Biography in Encyclopaedia Britannica.','2n(2n-1)] which had been studied by Brouncker in his work on the area under a hyperbola.
- .if anyone would find an accurate value of this series to nine places ..
- they would require one thousand million of terms; and this series converges much swifter than many others..
- For example he defined the series Tn+1 = nTn with T1 = 1.
- However, before doing so we will look at a correspondence that Stirling had with Euler since this relates to the work we have just discussed on series.

- the more I have learned from your excellent articles, which I have seen here and there in your Transactions, concerning the nature of series, a study in which I have indeed expended much effort, the more I have wished to become acquainted with you in order that I could receive more from you yourself and also submit my own deliberations to your judgement.
- Now that I have read through it diligently, I am truly astonished at the great abundance of excellent methods contained in such a small volume, by means of which you show how to sum slowly converging series with ease and how to interpolate progressions which are very difficult to deal with.
- But especially pleasing to me was proposition XIV of part 1 in which you give a method by which series, whose law of progression is not even established, may be summed with great ease using only the relation of the last terms, certainly this method extends very widely and is of the greatest use.

- He certainly did not give up mathematics when he took up the post in the mining company, and in [',' I Tweddle, James Stirling: this about series and such things (Edinburgh, 1988).','3] there is a discussion of unpublished mathematical work in notebooks of Stirling that were probably written between 1730 and 1745.
- he surveyed the Clyde with a view to rendering it navigable by a series of locks, thus taking the first step towards making Glasgow the commercial capital of Scotland.
- As Stirling's unpublished manuscripts show [',' I Tweddle, James Stirling: this about series and such things (Edinburgh, 1988).','3], he did go much further than the 1735 paper but probably the pressure of work at the mining company gave him too little time to polish the work.
- Brook Taylor (1685-1731)
- The first of these books contains what is now known as the Taylor series, though it would only be known as this in 1785.
- In particular they discussed infinite series and probability.
- His life, however, suffered a series of personal tragedies beginning around 1721.
- Taylor added to mathematics a new branch now called the "calculus of finite differences", invented integration by parts, and discovered the celebrated series known as Taylor's expansion.
- It was, wrote Taylor, due to a comment that Machin made in Child's Coffeehouse when he had commented on using "Sir Isaac Newton's series" to solve Kepler's problem, and also using "Dr Halley's method of extracting roots" of polynomial equations.
- Taylor initially derived the version which occurs as Proposition 11 as a generalisation of Halley's method of approximating roots of the Kepler equation, but soon discovered that it was a consequence of the Bernoulli series.
- The second version occurs as Corollary 2 to Proposition 7 and was thought of as a method of expanding solutions of fluxional equations in infinite series.
- and his methods are discussed in [',' A Malet, James Gregorie on tangents and the ’Taylor’ rule for series expansions, Arch.
- The differences in Newton's ideas of Taylor series and those of Gregory are discussed in [',' S S Petrova and D A Romanovska, On the history of the discovery of Taylor series (Russian), Istor.-Mat.
- The term "Taylor's series" seems to have used for the first time by Lhuilier in 1786.
- Taylor series for sine
.
- Taylor series for cosine
.
- Taylor series

- Dmitrii Menshov (1892-1988)
- Menshov's first degree was awarded in 1916 for the thesis which he wrote on The Riemann theory of trigonometric series which was examined by Egorov and Luzin.
- However, only three weeks after he graduated, Menshov discovered one of his most fundamental results on the uniqueness problem for trigonometric series.
- Consider the trigonometric series
.
- Cantor had proved that if this series converges to 0 for all x in [0, 2π] - E, for a countable set E, then an = bn = 0 for all n.
- Vallee Poussin had proved that if the above series converged to a finite Lebesgue integrable function f (x) then the given series is the Fourier series of f (x).
- The remarkable, and unexpected, result that Menshov discovered in 1916 was that this was not so, for he constructed a trigonometric series which converges to 0 for all x in [0, 2π] - E, for a set E of measure zero, yet not all the coefficients of the trigonometric series are zero.
- His scientific interests relate principally to the theory of trigonometric series, the theory of orthogonal series and the problem of monogenity of functions of a complex variable.
- For his work on the representation of functions by trigonometric series, Menshov was awarded a State Prize in 1951.
- In 1958 Menshov attended the International Congress of Mathematicians in Edinburgh and he was invited to address the Congress with his paper On the convergence of trigonometric series.
- Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920)
- He made substantial contributions to the analytical theory of numbers and worked on elliptic functions, continued fractions, and infinite series.
- In 1900 he began to work on his own on mathematics summing geometric and arithmetic series.
- He investigated the series ∑(1/n) and calculated Euler's constant to 15 decimal places.
- He continued his mathematical work, however, and at this time he worked on hypergeometric series and investigated relations between integrals and series.
- Continuing his mathematical work Ramanujan studied continued fractions and divergent series in 1908.
- Hill replied in a fairly encouraging way but showed that he had failed to understand Ramanujan's results on divergent series.
- The recommendation to Ramanujan that he read Bromwich's Theory of infinite series did not please Ramanujan much.
- I have made a special investigation of divergent series in general and the results I get are termed by the local mathematicians as 'startling'.
- Ramanujan worked out the Riemann series, the elliptic integrals, hypergeometric series and functional equations of the zeta function.
- Ramanujan independently discovered results of Gauss, Kummer and others on hypergeometric series.
- Ramanujan's own work on partial sums and products of hypergeometric series have led to major development in the topic.
- Raymond Brink (1890-1973)
- He was awarded his doctorate in 1916 for his thesis Some Integral Tests for the Convergence and Divergence of Infinite Series.
- He published the paper A New Integral Test for the Convergence and Divergence of Infinite Series (1918) which was based on his thesis.
- A new sequence of integral tests for the convergence and divergence of infinite series has been developed by the author.
- These he published in the paper A New Sequence of Integral Tests for the Convergence and Divergence of Infinite Series which appeared in the Annals of Mathematics in 1919.
- Finally we give some examples of Brink's papers: A new integral test for the convergence and divergence of infinite series (1918); A new sequence of integral tests for the convergence and divergence of infinite series (1919); The May Meeting of the Minnesota Section (1927); Recent Publications: Reviews: Studies in the History of Statistical Method - With Special Reference to Certain Education Problems (1929); The May Meeting of the Minnesota Section (1930); A Simplified Integral Test for the Convergence of Infinite Series (1931); Recent Publications: Reviews: Differential Equations (1932); The Annual Meeting of the Minnesota Section (1937); College Mathematics During Reconstruction (1944), and A Course in Mathematics for the Purpose of General Education (1947).
- The paper A Simplified Integral Test for the Convergence of Infinite Series (1931) is really a follow-up paper to his 1918 and 1919 papers.
- In other papers the author has presented certain integral tests for the convergence and divergence of infinite series.
- Such tests are interesting not only because they can be used for testing types of series which are very difficult to examine by other methods, but also because, through the natural connection between integration and summation, they offer a simple and attractive means of unifying and establishing many tests of other kinds.
- Du Bois-Reymond gave the name "tests of the first kind" to series tests which make direct use of the general term of the series itself.
- In a similar way, the familiar Maclaurin-Cauchy integral test, which requires the use of a function u(x) where u(n) is the general term of the series, may be called an "integral test of the first kind." And an "integral test of the second kind" is one in which an analogous role is played by a function r(x), where r(n) is the ratio of the nth term to the preceding term.
- Leonhard Euler (1707-1783)
- This was to find a closed form for the sum of the infinite series ζ(2) = ∑ (1/n2), a problem which had defeated many of the top mathematicians including Jacob Bernoulli, Johann Bernoulli and Daniel Bernoulli.
- In 1737 he proved the connection of the zeta function with the series of prime numbers giving the famous relation
.
- Other work done by Euler on infinite series included the introduction of his famous Euler's constant γ, in 1735, which he showed to be the limit of
.
- Euler also studied Fourier series and in 1744 he was the first to express an algebraic function by such a series when he gave the result
.
- Euler wrote to James Stirling on 8 June 1736 telling him about his results on summing reciprocals of powers, the harmonic series and Euler's constant and other results on series.
- Concerning the summation of very slowly converging series, in the past year I have lectured to our Academy on a special method of which I have given the sums of very many series sufficiently accurately and with very little effort.
- he has two theorems for summing series by means of derivatives of the terms, one of which is the self-same result that you sent me.
- I have very little desire for anything to be detracted from the fame of the celebrated Mr Maclaurin since he probably came upon the same theorem for summing series before me, and consequently deserves to be named as its first discoverer.
- He considered linear equations with constant coefficients, second order differential equations with variable coefficients, power series solutions of differential equations, a method of variation of constants, integrating factors, a method of approximating solutions, and many others.
- Nilakantha (1444-1544)
- The series π/4 = 1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + ..
- is a special case of the series representation for arctan, namely
.
- It is well known that one simply puts x = 1 to obtain the series for π/4.
- The author of [',' R Roy, The discovery of the series formula for ¹ by Leibniz, Gregory and Nilakantha, Math.
- 63 (5) (1990), 291-306.','4] reports on the appearance of these series in the work of Leibniz and James Gregory from the 1670s.
- The contributions of the two European mathematicians to this series are well known but in [',' R Roy, The discovery of the series formula for ¹ by Leibniz, Gregory and Nilakantha, Math.
- 63 (5) (1990), 291-306.','4] the results on this series in the work of Madhava nearly three hundred years earlier as presented by Nilakantha in the Tantrasamgraha is also discussed.
- Nilakantha derived the series expansion
.
- An interesting feature of his work was his introduction of several additional series for π/4 that converged more rapidly than

.
- Pietro Mengoli (1626-1686)
- Mengoli used infinite series to good effect in Novae quadraturae arithmeticae, seu de additione fractionum Ⓣ published in Bologna in 1650, developing ideas which had first been investigated by Cataldi.
- He begins with the summation of geometric series, then shows that the harmonic series does not converge.
- In doing so he became the first person to prove that it was possible for a series whose terms tend to zero to be made larger than any given number.
- He also investigated the harmonic series with alternating signs which he proved converges to log(2).
- This series was also investigated by Nicolaus Mercator.
- Other interesting results about series in Novae quadraturae arithmeticae Ⓣ include a study of the sum of reciprocals of the triangular numbers ½n(n+1).
- He then argued that the difference 1 - n-1/n+1 could be made smaller than any given positive number by taking n large enough so the sum of the series was 1.
- , 10 Mengoli showed that the series whose nth term is 1/n(n+r) converges having sum S where
.
- He also showed that the series whose nth term was 1/n(n+1)(n+2) converges with sum 1/4.
- However, perhaps not surprisingly, he failed to be able to sum the series whose nth term is 1/n2.
- He defines limits of positive variable quantities using ideas that he had used in looking at limits of series.
- Raphaël Salem (1898-1963)
- Whenever he had free time in the evenings he worked on Fourier series, a topic which interested him throughout his life.
- He became attracted to Fourier series, and the interest in the subject remained undiminished throughout his life.
- Although he read some of the current literature on Fourier series, he apparently worked all alone ..
- He did have some connections with Paris mathematicians, however, particularly with Denjoy who may have influenced him towards Fourier series.
- He was in the right place to carry on with his interest in Fourier series, and he collaborated on this topic with Norbert Wiener and Zygmund (with whom he wrote joint papers).
- Zygmund, reviewing [',' Oeuvres mathematique de Raphael Salem (Paris, 1967).','2], puts Salem's contributions to Fourier series into perspective:-
.
- For the last few decades two problems were central in the field: convergence almost everywhere of Fourier series and the nature of the sets of uniqueness for trigonometric series.
- Another direction in which [Salem] did a lot was applications of the calculus of probability to Fourier series and, curiously enough, this has connection with problems of uniqueness.
- Moreover, it seem that, far from being incidental, as it might have appeared some 30 or so years ago, the calculus of probability is becoming a standard method of attacking problems of trigonometric series.
- After Salem died his wife established an international prize for outstanding contributions to Fourier series [',' J-P Kahane, Biography in Dictionary of Scientific Biography (New York 1970-1990).','1]:-
.
- Henri Lebesgue (1875-1941)
- Lebesgue wrote two monographs Lecons sur l'integration et la recherche des fonctions primitives Ⓣ (1904) and Lecons sur les series trigonometriques Ⓣ (1906) which arose from these two lecture courses and served to make his important ideas more widely known.
- Fourier had assumed that for bounded functions term by term integration of an infinite series representing the function was possible.
- From this he was able to prove that if a function was representable by a trigonometric series then this series is necessarily its Fourier series.
- There is a problem here, namely that a function which is not Riemann integrable may be represented as a uniformly bounded series of Riemann integrable functions.
- In 1905 Lebesgue gave a deep discussion of the various conditions Lipschitz and Jordan had used in order to ensure that a function f (x) is the sum of its Fourier series.
- What Lebesgue was able to show was that term by term integration of a uniformly bounded series of Lebesgue integrable functions was always valid.
- This now meant that Fourier's proof that if a function was representable by a trigonometric series then this series is necessarily its Fourier series became valid, since it could now be founded on a correct result regarding term by term integration of series.
- Anneli Lax (1922-1999)
- The NML was intended as a series of monographs on various mathematical topics.
- The monographs were written by individual mathematicians most of whom had not written for the high school level prior to their work in the series.
- Instead, books are still being published in the NML series, though at a slower pace than during its height in the 1960s.
- Lax was at the centre of the MAA's publication program for thirty-three years, overseeing the NML series.
- The NML series was planned by Lax and the editorial board to [',' Anneli Lax, New Mathematical Library ','5]:-
.
- Lax was a skilled editor and strove to bring out the best work of the mathematicians who wrote for the series.
- Around 1960 Anneli approached me about contributing a volume for an upcoming series called The New Mathematical Library that she was editing and that was designed to overcome this reluctance to write mathematical texts for students.
- After much persuasion, I agreed and wrote 'The Lore of Large Numbers', Number 6 in the series currently still in print, but horribly out of date!
.
- There are now also more than 35 books in the NML series.
- Many of Lax's admirers thought the NML should be re-titled 'ANML,' Anneli's New Mathematical Library, because of her care in developing and sustaining the series.
- No other person in the history of the Association's book publishing effort has played a larger role in developing and nurturing a book series.

- I [EFR] watched the TV documentary and fully agree with Caroline Series' comment.
- Gilles Pisier (1950-)
- In October 1974 Pisier became an Attache de Recherche having already published a whole range of papers including: Bases suites lacunaires dans les espaces Lpd'apres Kadec et Pelczynski p spaces of Kadec and Pelczynski',5067)">Ⓣ (1973); (with Bernard Maurey) Un theoreme d'extrapolation et ses consequences Ⓣ (1973); "Type" des espaces normes Ⓣ (1973); Sur les espaces de Banach qui ne contiennent pas uniformement de l1n 1n',5070)">Ⓣ (1973) and (with Bernard Maurey) Characterisation d'une classe d'espaces de Banach par des proprietes de series aleatoires vectorielles Ⓣ (1973).
- by J P Kahane ( "Random series of functions", 1968) based on the remarkable work of Paley, Salem and Zygmund and the work of his student P Billiard on random Fourier series.
- Pisier's main contributions to random Fourier series are contained in two works, both with Michael Marcus.
- First there is the book Random Fourier series with applications to harmonic analysis (1981).
- The authors generalize to the framework of locally compact abelian groups some results which were first established for Rademacher series and later for more general random Fourier series and for Gaussian processes.
- While the results are stated in this general setting, the intuition developed in the concrete case of random Fourier series on a finite interval of the line pervades the presentation.
- uniform convergence of a random Fourier series and most other results are dependent on the existence (or not) of this property.
- The second of his major works with Michael Marcus on random Fourier series is the paper Characterization of almost surely continuous p-stable random Fourier series and strongly stationary processes (1984).
- Marcel Riesz (1886-1969)
- He studied at Budapest University and, influenced by Fejer, undertook research on problems from the theory of series.
- In it he gave the correct generalisation of Cantor's uniqueness theorem for convergent trigonometric series to trigonometric series summable by the Cesaro method.
- The first period of his work, from the beginning of his doctoral research up to around the beginning of World War I, concentrated on the theory of series, in particular the summability theory of power series, trigonometric series and Dirichlet series.
- Another highlight from this period is his beautiful proof of Fatou's theorem which give conditions under which the power series of an analytic function converges to a point on its circle of convergence.
- In a joint work with Hardy The general theory of Dirichlet's series, published by Cambridge University Press in 1915, he introduced Riesz means.
- He gave an important series of lectures Clifford numbers and spinors at the University of Maryland between October 1957 and January 1958.
- Szolem Mandelbrojt (1899-1983)
- He remained in the United States as a lecturer at the Rice Institute in Houston during 1926-27 and published Modern researches on the singularities of functions defined by Taylor's series in a Rice Institute Pamphlet (1927).
- Mandelbrojt published an important book Series de Fourier et classes quasi-analytiques de fonctions Ⓣ in 1935.
- The present lectures give an excellent account of the modern theory of classes of infinitely differentiable functions of a real variable and may be regarded as a second edition of the author's book "Series de Fourier et classes quasi-analytiques de fonctions" to include the work of the author and of Henri Cartan since that date.
- Continuing to work at the Rice Institute during World War II, Mandelbrojt continued to publish important work In 1944 he published a series of lectures he had given at the Institute under the title Dirichlet series:-
.
- This monograph consists of a series of lectures delivered by the author and is not a complete treatment of general Dirichlet series.
- He continued as association with the Rice Institute, howver, and continued to publish work in their Rice Institute Pamphlet series.
- He published in that series General theorems of closure in 1951 which presented results concerning closure of translations and closure of linear combinations of derivatives of a function.
- In the following year he published Series adherentes, regularisation des suites, applications Ⓣ in Paris, then in 1958 Composition theorems in the Rice Institute Series.
- various density functions for sets of positive integers, adherent series, the Fourier-Carleman transform and the spectrum of a function defined by means of this transform.
- In 1969 Mandelbrojt published Series de Dirichlet.
- Siobhan Vernon (1932-2002)
- On 17 December 1956 she submitted her paper Note on an integrability theorem for sine series to the Quarterly Journal of Mathematics, Oxford, and it was published in the following year.
- She was appointed to the new full-time post of Assistant in Mathematics at University College, Cork, in 1957 and submitted her second paper On a divergent trigonometrical series given by Steinhaus to the Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society on 28 May 1958.
- Her third paper The absolute convergence of certain lacunary Fourier series was published in the Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy in 1960-61.
- She continued to be encouraged by Kennedy and acknowledged this in her next paper On power series with non-negative coefficients (1966).
- O'Shea's next two publications were Note on power series of a certain type (1968) and A class of power series with no real zeros (1971).
- Her publications were generally in the field of infinite series, in particular trigonometric series, which is mathematical analysis but in her teaching she had an inclination to algebra.
- Under her married name of Siobhan Vernon, she published the three papers On power series with non-negative coefficients.
- Dunham Jackson (1888-1946)
- Many a worker will be inspired by the pages devoted to Fourier and Legendre series and to Chebyshev-Hermite polynomials to try his hand in obtaining similar results for other classes of orthogonal functions, and in particular, for other classes of orthogonal Chebyshev polynomials.
- As well as this monograph, Jackson published a student text Fourier Series and Orthogonal Polynomials in 1941 in the Carus Mathematical Monographs of the Mathematical Association of America.

- Then he began to suffer a series of minor heart attacks which prevented him from carrying out his teaching duties.
- Paul Cohen (1934-2007)
- Continuing to study at Chicago for his doctorate under the supervision of Antoni Zygmund he was awarded his PhD in 1958 for his doctoral thesis Topics in the Theory of Uniqueness of Trigonometric Series.
- In this thesis, Cohen states that he [',' P J Cohen, Topics in the Theory of Uniqueness of Trigonometric Series, Ph.D.
- He begins the Introduction by putting the topic of the thesis into context [',' P J Cohen, Topics in the Theory of Uniqueness of Trigonometric Series, Ph.D.
- The theory of uniqueness of trigonometrical series can be regarded as arsing from the question of deciding in what sense the Fourier series of a function may be considered as the legitimate expansion of the function in an infinite trigonometrical series.
- We know, of course, that if the series converges boundedly to the function, then indeed the coefficients of the series must be given by the Euler-Fourier Formulas.
- However, in the absence of such a condition, we may ask ourselves whether two trigonometrical series may converge to the same function everywhere.
- Lipót Fejér (1880-1959)
- In Berlin he attended courses by Georg Frobenius and Lazarus Fuchs but it was his discussions with Hermann Schwarz that led him look at the convergence of Fourier series and prove the highly significant "Fejer's theorem" published in Sur les fonctions bornees et integrables Ⓣ.
- The Fourier series is summable (C, 1) to the value of the function at each point of continuity.
- Henri Poincare, Paris, 1981), 67-84.','8], its discovery restored to Fourier series a fundamental role in analysis for at least fifty years.
- We note that it was while he was in Berlin that he changed his name from Weiss to Fejer and, after he did so, Schwarz jokingly refused to talk to him! Fejer's fundamental summation theorem for Fourier series formed the basis of his doctoral thesis which he presented to the University of Budapest in 1902.
- If the Fourier series of a function converges at a point of continuity of the function, its sum is the value of the function at that point;
.
- However there were problems regarding his appointment to the chair as is recounted in [',' K Tandori, The life and works of Lipot Fejer, in Functions, series, operators (2 Vols.), Colloq.
- He worked on power series and on potential theory.
- Much of his work is on Fourier series and their singularities but he also contributed to approximation theory.
- One of Fejer's students, Agnes Berger, described his lecturing style in the following way (see [',' K Tandori, The life and works of Lipot Fejer, in Functions, series, operators (2 Vols.), Colloq.
- John Machin (1680-1751)
- This series (among others for the same purpose, and drawn from the same principle) I received from the excellent analyst, and my much esteemed friend Mr John Machin; and by means thereof, van Ceulen's number, or that in Art.
- No indication is given in Jones's work, however, as to how Machin discovered his series expansion for π so when de Moivre wrote to Johann Bernoulli on 8 July 1706 telling him about Machin's series for π he suggested that Johann Bernoulli might tell Jakob Hermann about Machin's unproved result.
- He did so and Hermann quickly discovered a proof that Machin's series converges to π.
- He produced techniques that show other similar series also converge rapidly to π and he wrote on 21 August 1706 to Leibniz giving details.
- Two years later, on 6 July 1708, de Moivre wrote again to Johann Bernoulli about Machin's series, on this occasion giving two different proofs that it converged to π.
- Machin had explained to Taylor in Child's Coffeehouse how to use Newton's series to solve Kepler's problem and also how Halley's method finds roots of polynomial equations.
- Mr William Jones's Synopsis palmariorum matheseo which was published in the year 1706 is the only book in which as I believe the series of Mr Machin had ever made its appearance before the publication of my Dissertation on the Use of the Negative Sign in Algebra in the year 1758.
- Machin's work on the series for has proved of lasting importance, but most of his other contributions are not of the same high standard.
- Hugo Steinhaus (1887-1972)
- Steinhaus studied Lebesgue's two major books Lecons sur l'integration et la recherche des fonctions primitives Ⓣ (1904) and Lecons sur les series trigonmetriques Ⓣ (1906) around 1912 after completing his doctorate.
- by Steinhaus and Banach, concentrated mainly on functional analysis and its diverse applications, the general theory of orthogonal series, and probability theory.
- Another important publishing venture in which Steinhaus was involved, begun in 1931, was a new series of Mathematical Monographs.
- The series was set up under the editorship of Steinhaus and Banach from Lvov and Knaster, Kuratowski, Mazurkiewicz, and Sierpiński from Warsaw.
- An important contribution to the series was a volume written by Steinhaus jointly with Kaczmarz in 1937, The theory of orthogonal series.
- Some of Steinhaus's early work was on trigonometric series.
- He gave an example of a trigonometric series which diverged at every point, yet its coefficients tended to zero.
- He also gave an example of a trigonometric series which converged in one interval but diverged in a second interval.
- As we have noted above, other contributions by Steinhaus were on orthogonal series, probability theory, real functions and their applications.
- Lejeune Dirichlet (1805-1859)
- These papers introduce Dirichlet series and determine, among other things, the formula for the class number for quadratic forms.
- He turned to Laplace's problem of proving the stability of the solar system and produced an analysis which avoided the problem of using series expansion with quadratic and higher terms disregarded.
- Dirichlet is also well known for his papers on conditions for the convergence of trigonometric series and the use of the series to represent arbitrary functions.
- These series had been used previously by Fourier in solving differential equations.
- Earlier work by Poisson on the convergence of Fourier series was shown to be non-rigorous by Cauchy.
- Because of this work Dirichlet is considered the founder of the theory of Fourier series.
- Riemann, who was a student of Dirichlet, wrote in the introduction to his habilitation thesis on Fourier series that it was Dirichlet [',' H Koch, Gustav Peter Lejeune Dirichlet, in Mathematics in Berlin (Berlin, 1998), 33-40.','11]:-
.
- Stefan Kaczmarz (1895-1939)
- Other papers he published, some coauthored with his colleagues at Lwow, are: Uber die Konvergenz der Reihen von Orthogonalfunktionen Ⓣ (1925), Uber die Summierbarkeit der Orthogonalreihen Ⓣ (1927), Uber Reihen von allgemeinen Orthogonalfunktionen Ⓣ (1927), (with L Nikliborc) Sur les suites de fonctions convergentes en moyenne Ⓣ (1928), Sur la convergence et la sommabilite des developpements orthogonaux Ⓣ (1929), Zur Theorie der Fourierschen Doppelreihe Ⓣ (1930), (With H Steinhaus) Le systeme orthogonal de M Rademacher Ⓣ (1930), Integrale vom Dini'schen Typus Ⓣ (1931), Une remarque sur les series Ⓣ (1931), Axioms for Arithmetic (1932), On Some Classes of Fourier Series (1933), Sur les multiplicateurs des series orthogonales Ⓣ (1933), Note on general transforms (1933), Notes on orthogonal series I (1934), Notes on orthogonal series II (1934), Notes on orthogonal series III (1936), (with J Marcinkiewicz) Sur les multiplicateurs des series orthogonales Ⓣ (1938), and Sur l'irrationalite des integrales indefinies Ⓣ (1939).
- The present volume of the excellent Polish Series is devoted to the theory of general orthogonal functions of a single real variable.
- This book gives a good account of recent researches in orthogonal series, and may be recommended not only to specialists in that subject but also to those interested in trigonometric series and in linear operations.
- From 1923 to 1939 Kaczmarz taught many university level courses at Lwow such as: Analytical Geometry, Higher Analysis, Integral Equations, Algebraic Curves, Trigonometric Series, Non-Euclidean Geometry and the Theory of Groups, and Differential Geometry.
- Werner Rogosinski (1894-1964)
- At this stage Landau was interested in number theory, in particular Dirichlet series that he had studied for his own doctorate, and it was in this area that Rogosinski worked for his thesis.
- The particular problem Rogosinski studied involved the Dirichlet divisor problem, particularly studying a series expansion given by Georgy Voronoy.
- Rogosinski was appointed to the University of Konigsberg as a Privatdocent in 1923 and began publishing papers which typified the contributions he made throughout his life to the theory of functions and to the theory of series.
- This book on Fourier series was based on lectures that Rogosinski gave on the topic at the University of Konigsberg.
- In 1944 Rogosinski's collaboration with Hardy led to the publication of their book Fourier Series.
- E C Titchmarsh writes [',' E C Titchmarsh, Review: Fourier Series by G H Hardy and W W Rogosinski, The Mathematical Gazette 28 (281) (1944), 164.','5]:-
.
- Rogosinski lectured to the Edinburgh Mathematical Society in the summer of 1945 and, a consequence of this lecture became the book Volume and integral (1952) published in the Oliver and Boyd Series of University Mathematical Texts.
- Distinguished for his contributions to Mathematical Analysis, especially in the theory of Fourier Series and Allied Subjects.
- Samuel Verblunsky (1906-1996)
- in 1927 he continued to undertake research at Magdalene College with J E Littlewood as his thesis advisor and was awarded his doctorate in 1930 for his thesis Researches In The Theory Of Fourier Series.
- The 1930 Mathematical Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society contains eight papers by Verblunsky, namely: A property of continuous arcs (submitted May 1929), The relation between Riemann's method of summation and Cesaro's (submitted May 1929), Note on the sum of an oscillating series (submitted October 1929), Note on the Gibbs Phenomenon (submitted November 1929), The convergence of singular integrals (submitted February 1930), Note on the modified Heine-Borel theorem (submitted April 1930), A property of continuous arcs II (submitted July 1930), and Note on the sum of an oscillating series II (submitted July 1930).
- The papers On Summable Trigonometric Series (submitted September 1929) and The Generalized Third Derivative and its Application to the Theory of Trigonometric Series (submitted September 1929) were both published in the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society in 1930.
- Among the results that Verblunsky proved in his early papers was that a trigonometric series cannot be summable (C, 1) to 0 unless its coefficients are nul, thus confirming a 1911 conjecture of Marcel Riesz.
- The Mathematical Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society of 1931 contains four Verblunsky papers, namely Note on Continuous Functionals (submitted June 1930), The symmetric derivative and its application to the theory of trigonometric series (submitted October 1930), On summable trigonometric integrals (submitted November 1930), and Note on the Gibbs Phenomenon II (submitted May 1931).
- A contribution to the algebra of Fourier series while the second, which contains a proof of what today is called Verblunsky's Theorem, was On positive harmonic functions.
- in 1953 for his thesis Some Studies in Trigonometrical Ratios and he published the paper Uniqueness theorems for a class of generalized trigonometrical series in 1954 in which he wrote:-
.
- students, Johnston Andrew Anderson and Gordon Harper Fullerton, wrote the joint paper On a class of Cauchy exponential series (1965) in which they write:-
.
- Colin Maclaurin (1698-1746)
- It is in the Treatise of fluxions that Maclaurin uses the special case of Taylor series now named after him and for which he is undoubtedly best remembered today.
- The Maclaurin series was not an idea discovered independently of the more general result of Taylor for Maclaurin acknowledges Taylor's contribution.
- Another important result given by Maclaurin, which has not been named after him or any other mathematician, is the important integral test for the convergence of an infinite series.
- As mentioned above, Maclaurin is best known for the Maclaurin Series, which is a special case of the Taylor series.

- Georges Valiron (1884-1955)
- He was sent to the University of Strasbourg to teach mathematics, presenting a course on 'Dirichlet series and factorial series' in March and April 1921.
- In February and March 1922 Valiron delivered a series of lectures to honours students at the University College of Wales at Aberystwyth.
- In the following year he published Theorie Generale des Series de Dirichlet Ⓣ (1926).
- L L Smail writes in a review [',' L L Smail, Review: Theorie Generale des Series de Dirichlet by G Valiron, Bull.
- The aim of the series to which this work belongs is to present in brief and compact form the most important results and outlines of methods in various mathematical subjects of current interest.
- This particular number on Dirichlet series gives an excellent survey of this interesting field which is now growing so rapidly.
- Among the papers that Valiron published in the years following World War I, we mention: Les theoremes generaux de M Borel dans la theorie des fonctions entieres Ⓣ (1920); Recherches sur le theoreme de M Picard Ⓣ (1921); Recherches sur le theoreme de M Picard dans la theorie des fonctions entieres Ⓣ (1922); Sur les fonctions entieres verifiant une classe d'equations differentielles Ⓣ (1923); Sur l'abscisse de convergence des series de Dirichlet Ⓣ (1924); Sur les surfaces qui admettent un plan tangent en chaque point Ⓣ (1926); and Sur la distribution des valeurs des fonctions meromorphes Ⓣ (1926).
- Infinite series and products; III.
- Functions of a single complex variable defined or represented by series or integrals; VII.
- Trigonometric series and generalizations; VIII.
- Germund Dahlquist (1925-2005)
- Three methods, old but not so well known, transform an infinite series into a complex integral over an infinite interval.
- Applications are made to slowly convergent alternating and positive series, to Fourier series, to the numerical analytic continuation of power series outside the circle of convergence, and to ill-conditioned power series.
- [The second part] is mainly concerned with the derivation, analysis and applications of a summation formula, due to Lindelof, for alternating series and complex power series, including ill-conditioned power series.
- Stephen Bosanquet (1903-1984)
- Bosanquet's early 1930s papers were on series and integration, a 1930 paper being on fractional integration, a topic he would return to many times.
- For example he was a visiting professor at the University of Utah during 1964-65 where he gave a major lecture series on The history and development of the theory of divergent series and integrals.
- During 1969-70 he visited the University of Western Ontario and gave another major lecture series, this time on Matrix transformations and sequence spaces with applications to summability.
- Bosanquet wrote many papers on the convergence and summability of Fourier series.
- He also wrote on the convergence and summability of Dirichlet series and studied specific kinds of summability such as summability factors for Cesaro means.
- He saw Hardy's great book 'Divergent Series' through the press during Hardy's last illness and he later edited the volume on 'Series' in Hardy's Collected Works; he was chief editor for the last two of the seven volumes.
- Lennart Carleson (1928-)
- In 1966 Carleson solved one of the outstanding problems of mathematics in his paper On convergence and growth of partial sums of Fourier series.
- Fourier, in 1807, had claimed that every function equals the sum of its Fourier series.
- A major research area throughout the 19th century concerned the convergence of Fourier series, and continuous functions whose Fourier series diverges at a dense set of points were constructed by du Bois-Reymond.
- In 1913 Luzin conjectured that if a function f is square Lebesgue integrable then the Fourier series of f converges pointwise to f almost everywhere.
- Carleson lectured on his spectacular result at the International Congress of Mathematicians at Moscow in 1966 when he gave the address Convergence and summability of Fourier series.
- The citation emphasizes not only Carleson's fundamental scientific contributions, the best known of which perhaps are the proof of Luzin's conjecture on the convergence of Fourier series, the solutions of the corona problem and the interpolation problem for bounded analytic functions, the solution of the extension problem for quasiconformal mappings in higher dimensions, and the proof of the existence of 'strange attractors' in the Henon family of planar maps, but also his outstanding role as scientific leader and advisor.
- His research in analysis is a series of towering and fundamental discoveries.
- Julio Rey Pastor (1888-1962)
- Between 1911 and 1916, La Junta Para Ampliacion de Estudios funded Rey Pastor to carry out a series of visits to Germany.
- However he was not one to remain fixed in one place for a long time and went to Barcelona in 1915 to give a series of lectures at the Institut d'Estudia.
- It dealt with the study of the method of summation of series.
- This article by Rey Pastor is framed by a long series of works, begun at the beginning of the twentieth century, on problems of summing series, convergence algorithms, singular integrals and comparative studies of series and integrals.
- He first presented his work in this area in 1926 in his course on "Series and Integrals" which he gave at Buenos Aires University.
- He continued working on problems related to the theory of summation of divergent series throughout the 1930's and published much of his work in international journals.
- Nathan Fine (1916-1994)
- who will present a series of at most three lectures accessible to a large fraction of those who teach college mathematics.
- He is perhaps best known for his book Basic hypergeometric series and applications published in the Mathematical Surveys and Monographs Series of the American Mathematical Society.
- Fine was at that time engaged in his own special development of q-hypergeometric series, and as the years passed he kept adding to his results and polishing his presentation.
- We became somewhat diverted while looking at Fine's text Basic hypergeometric series and applications when we began to look at Andrews' Introduction.
- For far too long, there has been a dearth of good references on basic hypergeometric series.
- The present book and Basic hypergeometric series by G Gasper and M Rahman have appeared in the past two years to greatly rectify this situation.
- This is a very personal book, a distillation of those results in basic hypergeometric series which hold the most appeal to its author.
- Johannes Robert Rydberg (1854-1919)
- Notwithstanding the imperfect spectroscopic tables then at his disposal Rydberg discovered most of the important properties of series spectra, including the relation between corresponding series in the spectra of related elements, and foreshadowed discoveries which were made later, when experimental work has sufficiently advanced.
- Some of the features noted by Rydberg were observed about the same time by Kayser and Runge, but his work had the special merit of connecting different series in the spectrum of the same element into one system, which could be represented by a set of simple formulae having but few adjustable constants.
- He especially insisted that the hydrogen constant, now generally called the "Rydberg constant," should appear in all series and, apart from slight variations from element to element suggested by the theoretical work of Bohr, nearly all subsequent attempts to improve the representation series have involved this supposition, and have had Rydberg's formula as a basis.
- the wave-lengths and wave numbers of corresponding lines, as well as the values of the three constants of the corresponding series of different elements, are periodical functions of the atomic weight.
- As I have pointed out already in my general exposition of the constitution of line spectra, and have afterwards tried further to confirm, there can be no doubt that these series are really parts of a single group of lines with two variable integral parameters, the general formula of which can be written approximately.
- Hubert Wall (1902-1971)
- in 1927 for his thesis On the Pade Approximants Associated with the Continued Fraction and Series of Stieltjes.
- Over the following years he produced an excellent series of papers on continued fractions such as: On extended Stieltjes series (1929); On the Pade approximants associated with a positive definite power series (1931); Convergence criteria for continued fractions (1931); General theorems on the convergence of sequences of Pade approximants (1932); On the relationship among the diagonal files of a Pade table (1932); On the expansion of an integral of Stieltjes (1932) and On the continued fractions which represent meromorphic functions (1933).
- This is the first volume to appear in "The University Series in Higher Mathematics" which is planned to be a collection of "advanced text and reference books in pure and applied mathematics." In order to make the book suitable as a text book the author gives detailed proofs and includes material which might be unfamiliar to "a student of rather modest preparation." Into this category fall such topics as: the Stieltjes-Vitali theorem, Schwarz's inequalities, matrix calculus, elementary properties of the Stieltjes integral, and basic concepts and formulae of the theory of continued fractions.
- As part of the Mathematical Association of America Classroom Resource Materials series, the book is intended for just that: supplementary classroom material for students with an unusual approach for presenting mathematical ideas.
- Pade approximants and continued fractions are closely related to many disciplines of pure and applied mathematics, including analytic function theory, the theory of moments, asymptotics and summability of divergent series.
- Wilhelm Lexis (1837-1914)
- From 1876-79 Lexis studied data presented as a series over time.
- He initiated the study of time series with his 1879 article On the theory of the stability of statistical series.
- Lexis required a binomial dispersion for his series to be stable and this ruled out most interesting series.
- After what is not much more than a three year period working on statistics in Freiburg, he began to produce a series of papers on economics.
- In addition to studying economics, the theory of population, and statistics, he also worked on the production of an economic encyclopaedia, edited a series of works on education in general and university education in particular, and was the director of the first institute of actuarial science in Germany.
- Niels Norlund (1885-1981)
- a long series of papers developing the theory of difference equations.
- He studied the factorial series and interpolation series entering in their solutions, determining their region of convergence and by analytic prolongation and different summation methods he extended them in the complex plane, determining their singularities and their behaviour at infinity, also by use of their relations to continued fractions and asymptotic series.
- In particular the little paper 'Sur une application des fonctions permutables' Ⓣ from 1919 should be mentioned: there he states some universal results on the summability of series based on a specific - but rather general - choice of the weights given to the elements; the method includes the better of the known summability methods, such as Cesaro's method, and is now known under the standard designation of Norlund-summation.
- The Geodesic Institute could not continue with its work, but Norland used the opportunity to produce a series of atlases, detailing the history of the mapping of Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Iceland.
- It is likely to become the standard memoir on the generalized hypergeometric series ..
- Christian Goldbach (1690-1764)
- When Bernoulli started to discuss infinite series with Goldbach as they talked in Oxford, Goldbach confessed that he knew nothing about the topic.
- Bernoulli gave him a loan of a book on the topic by his uncle Jacob Bernoulli but Goldbach found infinite series too difficult at that time, and gave up his attempts to understand Jacob Bernoulli's text.
- We mentioned that Goldbach gave up his attempts to understand infinite series in 1712.
- However in 1717 he read an article by Leibniz on computing the area of a circle and this led him to look again at the theory of infinite series.
- We should, however, mention his another two of his papers on infinite series De transformatione serierum Ⓣ (1729) and De terminis generalibus serierum Ⓣ (1732).
- The first of these introduced a method of transforming one series into another while the sum of the series remains fixed.
- Rudolf Wolf (1816-1893)
- Wolf wrote on prime number theory and geometry, then later on probability and statistics - a series of papers discussed Buffon's needle experiment in which he estimated π by Monte Carlo methods.
- I decided to carry out corresponding series of tests, hoping to obtain, not , but at least new proofs about the rules governing a finite number of trials.
- On a plate of about one square foot I drew a series of parallels at a distance of 45 mm, and from a knitting needle I broke a piece of 36 mm length - thus getting as close as 1/100 to the ideal ratio according to the instruction above.
- Thus I obtained in the first series of trials for 100 tosses a mean of 21.76 ± 0.64 tosses in which the needle intersected the parallels.
- In the second series of trials I obtained 71.34 ± 1.25.
- In the third series of trials I obtained 50.64 ± 0.83.
- a number that lies within the error limits of the mean from the third series of trials.
- James Gregory (1638-1675)
- He visited Flanders, Rome and Paris on his journey but spent most time at the University of Padua where he worked on using infinite convergent series to find the areas of the circle and hyperbola.
- We can now be certain that during the summer of 1668 Gregory was completely familiar with the series expansions of sin, cos and tan.
- Although he did not disclose his methods in the small treatise he discussed topics including various series expansions, the integral of the logarithmic function, and other related ideas.
- In February 1671 he discovered Taylor series (not published by Taylor until 1715), and the theorem is contained in a letter sent to Collins on 15 February 1671.
- For his reluctance to publish his "several universal methods in geometry and analysis" when he heard through Collins of Newton's own advances in calculus and infinite series, he postumously paid a heavy price ..
- However, we now summarise these and other contributions in the hope that, despite his reluctance to publish his methods, his remarkable contributions might indeed be more widely understood: Gregory anticipated Newton in discovering both the interpolation formula and the general binomial theorem as early as 1670; he discovered Taylor series more than 40 years before Taylor; he solved Kepler's famous problem of how to divide a semicircle by a straight line through a given point of the diameter in a given ratio (his method was to apply Taylor series to the general cycloid); he gives one of the earliest examples of a comparison test for convergence, essentially giving Cauchy's ratio test, together with an understanding of the remainder; he gave a definition of the integral which is essentially as general as that given by Riemann; his understanding of all solutions to a differential equation, including singular solutions, is impressive; he appears to be the first to attempt to prove that π and e are not the solution of algebraic equations; he knew how to express the sum of the nth powers of the roots of an algebraic equation in terms of the coefficients; and a remark in his last letter to Collins suggests that he had begun to realise that algebraic equations of degree greater than four could not be solved by radicals.
- Frank Jackson (1870-1960)
- Over the following couple of years he published two further papers in the same Proceedings, namely A certain linear differential equation (1896) and Certain expansions of xn in hypergeometric series (1897).
- Bruce Berndt writes [',' B C Berndt, What is a q-series, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.','1]:-
.
- Two English mathematicians, Frank H Jackson and L James Rogers, at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries devoted most of their mathematical careers to further developing the theory of q-series, but their efforts were not appreciated by their contemporary researchers.
- The Bible in the theory of basic hypergeometric series is the text 'Basic Hypergeometric Series' by G Gasper and M Rahman.
- Jackson's most important papers on q-series are On q-definite integrals (1910), On basic double hypergeometric functions (1942) and Basic double hypergeometric functions (1944).
- Cuthbert, Chester-le-Street, in the series Famous churches and abbeys.
- Elias Stein (1931-)
- He held this position for two years during which time a whole series of his papers appeared in print: Interpolation of linear operators (1956), Functions of exponential type (1957), Interpolation in polynomial classes and Markoff's inequality (1957), Note on singular integrals (1957), (with G Weiss) On the inerpolation of analytic families of operators action on Hpspaces (1957), (with E H Ostrow) A generalization of lemmas of Marcinkiewicz and Fine with applications to singular integrals (1957), A maximal function with applications to Fourier series (1958), (with G Weiss) Fractional integrals on n-dimensional Euclidean space (1958), (with G Weiss) Interpolation of operators with change of measures (1958), Localization and summability of multiple Fourier series (1958), and On the functions of Littlewood-Paley, Luzin, Marcinkiewicz (1958).
- Considerable portions of the theory of Fourier series and integrals are known to extend to various categories of topological groups.
- In 1971 Analytic continuation of group representations appeared based on a series of James Whittemore lectures that Stein had given at Yale University in November 1967.
- I look forward to reading and reviewing the next three books in this series (by the same authors).
- The second in this three volume series Complex analysis was published in 2003 and the third volume Real analysis: Measure theory, integration, and Hilbert spaces in 2005.
- Gregory of Saint-Vincent (1584-1667)
- In searching for ways to obtain a trisection, St Vincent came across the series
.
- This series according to St Vincent equals 2/3, which he called the terminus.
- There are many topics covered in the book including a study of circles, triangles, geometric series, ellipses, parabolas and hyperbolas.
- Book II looks at geometric series which Saint-Vincent is able to sum using the transformations he introduced in the first Book.
- He applies his results to a number of interesting problems such as the trisection of an angle which he achieves through an infinite series of bisections.
- He also applies his summation of series to the classical Greek problem of Zeno, namely Achilles and the tortoise.
- Huygens recommended the section on geometric series to Leibniz who later came to make a thorough study of the entire work.
- Otto Hölder (1859-1937)
- Otto Holder worked on the convergence of Fourier series and in 1884 he discovered the inequality now named after him.
- He became interested in group theory through Kronecker and Klein and proved the uniqueness of the factor groups in a composition series.
- His habilitation thesis examined the convergence of the Fourier series of a function that was not assumed to be either continuous or bounded.
- At first at Gottingen he continued to work on the convergence of Fourier series.
- Klein's lectures on Galois theory at Gottingen had interested Holder who began to study the Galois theory of equations and from there he was led to study composition series of groups.
- Holder proved the uniqueness of the factor groups in a composition series, the theorem now called the Jordan-Holder theorem, and published the result in Mathematische Annalen in 1889 in the paper Zuruckfuhrung einer beliebigen algebraischen Gleichung auf eine Kette von Gleichungen Ⓣ.
- A thorough study of the methods of ratiocination employed in mathematics, mechanics, and the exact natural sciences has led Professor Holder to the conviction that the deductive method there employed is made up of series of concatenated conclusions of quite characteristic form, and that consequently these sciences have a peculiar method and logic of their own.
- Abraham Plessner (1900-1961)
- In 1921 Plessner went to the University of Gottingen where, between May and August, he took courses on Dirichlet series and Galois theory by Edmund Landau; algebraic number fields by Emmy Noether; and the calculus of variations by Richard Courant.
- Plessner obtained his doctorate from Giessen in 1922 for a thesis on conjugate trigonometrical series entitled Zur Theorie der konjugierten trigonometrischen Reihen Ⓣ.
- Plessner's theorem states that if a trigonometric series converges everywhere in a set E of positive measure, then its conjugate series converges almost everywhere in E.
- In point of difficulty, it stands between these and de la Vallee Poussin's monograph in the Borel series.
- The book is divided into six chapters, whose titles are self-explanatory: (1) The fundamental concepts of the theory of sets; (2) The measure of sets of points; (3) Functions of real variables; (4) The Lebesgue integral; (5) Functions of one and two variables; and (6) Fourier series.
- The book provides, in a clear and concise manner, an overview of the theory of the Lebesgue integral and its application to the theory of Fourier series, so that it can be read without difficulty by a student in their middle semesters.
- Jakob Hermann (1678-1733)
- He received his first degree in 1695 and defended a dissertation on infinite series for a Master's Degree in the following year.
- Hermann was taught mathematics by Jacob Bernoulli who, at that time, was working on infinite series.
- Jacob Bernoulli divided up his work on infinite series into a number of dissertations and these were defended by his students for their Master's Degrees.
- Four of these students were Johann Jacob Fritz, who defended his dissertation on series in 1689, Hieronymus Beck who defended his thesis in 1692, Jakob Hermann who, as we noted above, defended his dissertation in 1696, and Nicolaus Harscher who defended his thesis on series in 1698.
- Slightly later, Nicolaus Bernoulli, a nephew of Jacob Bernoulli, also studied with his uncle and defended a dissertation on infinite series in 1704.
- Hermann discussed such topics as finding the radius of curvature and normals to plane curves; the division of an angle or an arc of a circumference into n parts, by the use of an infinite series; orthogonal trajectories for a given family of curves, by the use of differential equations; and the use of polar coordinates in the analysis of plane curves other than spirals.
- Jacob Bernoulli (1655-1705)
- Jacob Bernoulli returned to Switzerland and taught mechanics at the University in Basel from 1683, giving a series of important lectures on the mechanics of solids and liquids.
- By 1689 he had published important work on infinite series and published his law of large numbers in probability theory.
- Jacob Bernoulli published five treatises on infinite series between 1682 and 1704.
- Euler was the first to find the sum of this series in 1737.
- Bernoulli also studied the exponential series which came out of examining compound interest.
- The Bernoulli numbers appear in the book in a discussion of the exponential series.
- Bernoulli greatly advanced algebra, the infinitesimal calculus, the calculus of variations, mechanics, the theory of series, and the theory of probability.
- John Farey (1766-1826)
- The reason we have included him is that he made one mathematical observation and, from this, the Farey series of fractions has been named.
- We shall discuss below Farey's contribution to mathematics and also look at others who contributed to Farey series.
- In the second paragraph he defines the Farey series and states the "curious property".
- The Farey series (really a sequence) is defined as follows.
- Historical references to the Farey sequence have been examined by the authors of [',' M Bruckheimer and A Arcavi, Farey series and Pick’s area theorem, The Mathematical Intelligencer 17 (4) (1995), 64-67.','3].
- The article [',' M Bruckheimer and A Arcavi, Farey series and Pick’s area theorem, The Mathematical Intelligencer 17 (4) (1995), 64-67.','3] contains other interesting information on Farey's sequence, its relation to Pick's area theorem, and the inaccurate historical comments made about the sequence over many years.
- Karl Weierstrass (1815-1897)
- The transformation of his conception of an analytic function from a differentiable function to a function expansible into a convergent power series was made during this early period of Weierstrass's mathematical activity.
- This paper did not give the full theory of inversion of hyperelliptic integrals that Weierstrass had developed but rather gave a preliminary description of his methods involving representing abelian functions as constantly converging power series.
- The topics of his lectures included:- the application of Fourier series and integrals to mathematical physics (1856/57), an introduction to the theory of analytic functions (where he set out results he had obtained in 1841 but never published), the theory of elliptic functions (his main research topic), and applications to problems in geometry and mechanics.
- Its contents were: numbers, the function concept with Weierstrass's power series approach, continuity and differentiability, analytic continuation, points of singularity, analytic functions of several variables, in particular Weierstrass's "preparation theorem", and contour integrals.
- The standards of rigour that Weierstrass set, defining, for example, irrational numbers as limits of convergent series, strongly affected the future of mathematics.
- Known as the father of modern analysis, Weierstrass devised tests for the convergence of series and contributed to the theory of periodic functions, functions of real variables, elliptic functions, Abelian functions, converging infinite products, and the calculus of variations.
- Paul du Bois-Reymond (1831-1889)
- The standard technique to solve partial differential equations used Fourier series but Cauchy, Abel and Dirichlet had all pointed out problems associated with the convergence of the Fourier series of an arbitrary function.
- In 1873 du Bois-Reymond was the first person to give an example of a continuous function whose Fourier series diverges at a point.
- Perhaps what was even more surprising, the Fourier series of du Bois-Reymond function diverged at a dense set of points.
- The conception of space as static and unchanging can never generate the notion of a sharply defined, uniform line from a series of points however dense, for, after all, points are devoid of size, and hence no matter how dense a series of points may be, it can never become an interval, which must always be regarded as the sum of intervals between points.
- Sixto Ríos (1913-2008)
- He began publishing papers, both in French and in Spanish: Sobre una generalizacion del algoritmo de convergencia de Euler Ⓣ (1932); Sur l'ensemble singulier d'une classe des series potentielles de Taylor qui presentent des lacunes Ⓣ (1933); Estado actual de la teoria de la hiperconvergencia Ⓣ (1934); Sopra l'ultraconvergenza delle serie di Dirichlet Ⓣ (1934); Algunos resultados relativos a la hiperconvergencia en las series de Dirichlet Ⓣ (1934); and Sobre un teorema de M.
- His thesis, which was a continuation of Alexander Markowich Ostrowski's works on potential series, was published in 1936.
- In 1937 he was awarded the First Prize of the Spanish Royal Academy of Sciences for his paper Sobre el problema de hiperconvergencia de las series de Dirichlet cuyas sucesiones de exponentes poseen densidad maxima infinita Ⓣ (1940) and Conferencias sobre sucesiones de funciones analiticas y sus aplicaciones Ⓣ (1940).
- Before taking up the chair of statistics, Rios had published a number of books on analysis such as Lectures on the theory of the integral (Spanish) (1942), Lectures on the theory of the analytic continuation of Dirichlet series (Spanish) (1943), La Prolongacion Analitica de la Integral de Dirichlet-Stieltjes Ⓣ (1944), Conferencias sobre la Representacion Analitica de Funciones Ⓣ (1945), and Conceptos de Integral Ⓣ (1946).
- Even after taking up the Chair of Statistics he published the analysis book Introduccion a la Teoria de Series Trigonometricas Ⓣ (1949).

- Alexander Ivanovich Skopin (1927-2003)
- The first significant result which Skopin produced was concerned with the upper central series of groups [',' A I Skopin, The factor groups of an upper central series of free groups (Russian), Doklady Akad.
- From the 1970's, he became interested in problems concerning the structure of the lower central series of groups of the Burnside type, that is groups of prime-power exponent.
- It was very natural to fix the exponent and the number of generators and to study the lower central series of a group in more detail by performing direct calculations of its factors.
- At first, Skopin considered the case of metabelian groups with two generators with exponents 8, 9, or 27 ([',' A I Skopin, Factors of the nilpotent series of some metabelian groups of prime-power exponent (Russian), Modules and algebraic groups 2, Zap.

- Ferran Sunyer (1912-1967)
- Sunyer lost contact with him at this time and it was only after Hadamard had spent a year in England and returned to Paris as soon as the war ended that he was able to resume contact sending him a memoir on lacunary Taylor series.
- Two notes with results from the memoir on lacunary Taylor series were quickly published.
- Sunyer continued to publish papers such as On a class of transformations of the algorithms for summation of analytic series (Spanish) (1948), On the exclusion of an exceptional function by a gap condition (Spanish) (1948), Une generalisation des fonctions presque-periodiques Ⓣ (1949), A new generalization of almost periodic functions (Catalan) (1949), and Properties of entire functions (of finite order) represented by lacunary Taylor series (Spanish) (1949).
- The bulk of his work, published between 1939 and 1970, is on topics in the theory of entire and meromorphic functions, where his main tendency is that of generalizing important results, and is grouped in the volume under review into eight sections: (i) "miscellaneous papers", one of which contains generalizations of the theorems of Landau, Schottky, Picard, and of Montel's normality criterion, another on a new method for the summation of power series, but also a paper that falls entirely outside of the realm of analysis (to which all other papers are devoted), answering a question raised by Sierpinski in 1951 on order types; (ii) and (iii), spread over 220 pages, the study of exceptional values of an entire function as influenced by the lacunarity of the Taylor (or Dirichlet) series defining it, (ii) containing F Sunyer i Balaguer's 'Acta Mathematica' paper of 1952; (iv) work on the behaviour of an entire function and its derivatives and primitives along Borel-Valiron directions of maximal type; (v) generalizations of S Mandelbrojt's fundamental inequality (vi) topics in the theory of entire functions and overconvergence; (vii) generalizations of quasi-periodic and elliptic functions; (viii) differentiable functions of a real variable, containing a lovely result (the only one with a co-author, E Corominas) published in 1954) ..
- Camille Jordan (1838-1922)
- Indeed Jordan introduced the concept of a composition series (a series of subgroups each normal in the preceding with the property that no further terms could be added to the series so that it retains that property).
- The composition factors of a group G are the groups obtained by computing the factor groups of adjacent groups in the composition series.
- Jordan proved the Jordan-Holder theorem, namely that although groups can have different composition series, the set of composition factors is an invariant of the group.
- Among Jordan's many contributions to analysis we should also mention his generalisation of the criteria for the convergence of a Fourier series.
- Georg Cantor (1845-1918)
- This was due to Heine, one of his senior colleagues at Halle, who challenged Cantor to prove the open problem on the uniqueness of representation of a function as a trigonometric series.
- He published further papers between 1870 and 1872 dealing with trigonometric series and these all show the influence of Weierstrass's teaching.
- Cantor published a paper on trigonometric series in 1872 in which he defined irrational numbers in terms of convergent sequences of rational numbers.
- Between 1879 and 1884 Cantor published a series of six papers in Mathematische Annalen designed to provide a basic introduction to set theory.
- Soon Cantor was publishing in Mittag-Leffler's journal Acta Mathematica but his important series of six papers in Mathematische Annalen also continued to appear.
- The fifth paper in this series Grundlagen einer allgemeinen Mannigfaltigkeitslehre Ⓣ was also published as a separate monograph and was especially important for a number of reasons.
- Mikio Sato (1928-)
- I worked out hyperfunction series and outlined the theory for several variables - though the complete theory was finished later, since it required a generalization of cohomology theory.
- In 1968 he began to give a series of talks on algebraic analysis at Tokyo University which was attended by two students Takahiro Kawai and Masaki Kashiwara.
- In 1978, with coauthors Tetsuji Miwa and Michio Jimbo, he began publishing a series of papers Holonomic quantum fields.
- This is the first one of a series of papers on holonomic quantum fields.
- In this series we deal with these objects: (1) Deformation theory for linear differential equations (Riemann-Hilbert problem and its generalization to higher dimensions), (2) Quantum fields with critical strength (2-dimensional Ising model, etc.) and (3) Theory of Clifford group.
- By 1980 they had reached the 17th paper in this series.
- Pierre Laurent (1813-1854)
- Cauchy reported on Laurent's entry Memoire sur le calcul des variations Ⓣ, which contains the Laurent series for a complex function, on 20 May 1843.
- In modern terminology the theorem defined in an annulus (a ring bounded by two concentric circles) and on its boundary can be developed in a general, power series in increasing and decreasing powers of the variable.
- There exist functions, such as certain Bessel functions, which cannot be expanded into Taylor series, and Laurent's theorem would be applicable to these functions.
- Given Cauchy's attempt to claim the result of Laurent's paper it is not surprising the Academy of Sciences chose not to publish it but, despite this, the theorem and series are named for Laurent.
- Let x designate a real or imaginary variable; a real or imaginary function of x will be developable in a convergent series ordered according to the ascending powers of this variable, while the modulus of the variable will preserve a value less than the smallest of the values for which the function or its derivative ceases to be finite or continuous.
- Let x designate a real or imaginary variable; a real or imaginary function of x can be represented by the sum of two convergent series, one ordered according to the integral and ascending powers of x, and the other according to the integral and descending powers of x; and the modulus of x will take on a value in an interval within which the function or its derivative does not cease to be finite and continuous.
- Tom Apostol (1923-2016)
- He studied Konrad Knopp's book Theory and Applications of Infinite Series along with one other student and they took turns to lecture each day on what they had learnt, with Zuckerman continually questioning their understanding.
- The papers he published in 1950-51 are: Generalized Dedekind sums and transformation formulae of certain Lambert series (1950); Asymptotic series related to the partition function (1951); Identities involving the coefficients of certain Dirichlet series (1951); Remark on the Hurwitz zeta function (1951); and On the Lerch zeta function (1951).
- The book began as a series of notes that Apostol produced, following the ideas they had already discussed, for delivering the first year course, and then the second year course.
- The two volumes Introduction to analytic number theory and Modular functions and Dirichlet series in number theory were both published in 1976.
- Clement Durell (1882-1968)
- He was promoted to senior mathematics master at Winchester College in 1910 and began publishing a series of articles in the Mathematical Gazette.
- After the end of the war he returned to Winchester College and began publishing a series of articles in the Mathematical Gazette and a remarkable series of textbooks which would make him the best known writer of English school mathematics texts.
- All chapters conclude with a series of exercises, with solutions at the end of the book.
- Contents include the properties of the triangle and the quadrilateral; equations, sub-multiple angles, and inverse functions; hyperbolic, logarithmic, and exponential functions; and expansions in power-series.
- Further topics encompass the special hyperbolic functions; projection and finite series; complex numbers; de Moivre's theorem and its applications; one- and many-valued functions of a complex variable; and roots of equations.
- Ralph James (1909-1979)
- In certain problems (for example, in the theory of uniqueness of trigonometric series) it is desirable to define a second integral of a given function without defining the first integral.
- The main result of the present paper is that the sum of an everywhere convergent trigonometric series is integrable in the proposed sense, and the series itself is the Fourier series of the sum.
- Some later papers continuing this theme were Generalized nth primitives (1954), Integrals and summable trigonometric series (1955), and Summable trigonometric series (1956).
- Francis Murnaghan (1893-1976)
- He also published The orthogonal and symplectic groups in 1958 which arose from a series of twenty lectures he gave in Dublin in 1957.
- It covers topics such as: vectors and matrices; Fourier series; boundary value problems; Legendre and Bessel functions; integral equations; the calculus of variations and dynamics; and the operational calculus.
- The first of these is a short book of less that 100 pages written for engineers and scientists, while the second consists of 19 lectures on such topics as: the Fourier integral; the Laplace integral transformation; the differential equations of Laguerre and Bessel; properties of special functions; asymptotic series for an error function, and for certain Bessel functions.
- The 'converging factor' for an asymptotic series representing a function f(x) is that number by which the (n+1)st term of the series must be multiplied so that the result of adding this product to the sum of the first n terms will be f(x).
- This report describes the determination to high precision of this factor for the asymptotic series representing the probability integral.
- Lev Arkad'evich Kaluznin (1914-1990)
- He worked for the CNRS, published a series of papers on the structure of Sylow p-subgroups of symmetric groups, and in 1948 defended his doctoral thesis on the same topic.
- His activities and achivements during the decade 1960-1970 includes: conducting research, teaching at Kiev State University and the Kiev Pedagogical Institute, consulting for the Department of Mathematical Linguistics, serving as a senior researcher at the Institute of Cybernetics of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, organising series of public lectures on mathematics, and serving as a member on editorial boards of several scientific journals.
- Using his techniques, he was able to describe the characteristic subgroups of the Sylow p-subgroups, their derived series, their upper and lower central series, and more.
- A particularly important result is the well-known theorem of Krasner and Kaluznin concerning the embeddings of a group with a subnormal series into the wreath product of the factors of the series.
- Jacob Bronowski (1908-1974)
- He continued his research in geometry publishing a series of papers On triple planes and a paper The figure of six points in space of four dimensions.
- [I am a] mathematician trained in physics, who was taken into the life sciences in middle age by a series of lucky chances.
- He had presented a series for BBC television in the early 1960s called Insight in which he had looked at mathematical ideas such as probability, scientific ideas such as entropy and also the extent of human intelligence.
- His last major project was to write and narrate the BBC television series The Ascent of Man which was filmed between July 1971 and December 1972.
- The thirteen part series was broadcast in 1973 and also published in book form in that year.
- I [EFR] remember watching this remarkable television series which, in a style much copied since, described in humanist terms the work of Pythagoras, Newton, Einstein, Galen, Versalius, Darwin, Mendel, Szilard, John von Neumann and many others showing their contributions as significant highlights in human development.
- Linda Goldway Keen (1940-)
- In the 1980s she collaborated with Caroline Series on work on Riemann surfaces which returned to ideas that she had studied for her doctoral thesis:-
.
- Using powerful techniques developed by Thurston that involve hyperbolic three-manifolds, Keen and Series gave a geometric interpretation to Maskit's parameters.
- Much of Keen's work has been done in collaborations with other mathematicians and after her work with Caroline Series she teamed up with Paul Blanchard, Robert Devaney, and Lisa Goldberg to produce important results on dynamical systems.
- She teamed up again with Caroline Series for their joint article Pleating invariants for punctured torus groups (2004).
- Keen, working with Nikola Lakic, wrote the book Hyperbolic geometry from a local viewpoint which was published in 2007 by Cambridge University Press in the London Mathematical Society Student Texts series.
- The Emmy Noether Lectures are a prestigious series of lectures organised by the Association for Women in Mathematics.
- Li Shanlan (1811-1882)
- Xu may have been a governor but he was also an excellent mathematician with an interest in infinite series.
- He produced his own versions of logarithms, infinite series, and combinatorics but he did not follow the style of western mathematics but made his research naturally develop out of the foundations of Chinese mathematics.
- The summation of series constitutes a branch of Chinese mathematics called Short Width [Chapter 4 of the Nine Chapters on the Mathematical Art.
- The works of the great astronomer Guo Shoujing concerning the inequalities of the solar and lunar motion, Wang Lai's iterated sums, Dong Fangli's cyclotomical computations, and lastly the summation of series which appear in the algebra and the differential calculus of the Westerners constitute the major part of this chapter.
- Zhu Shijie from the Yuan dynasty is the only one who has made use of the prescriptions relating to summation of series.
- But his intention was only to expound the algebra and for that reason he presents the summation of series neither precisely nor methodically.
- Sheila Edmonds (1916-2002)
- Two papers appeared in 1942: On the multiplication of series which are infinite in both directions was published in the Journal of the London Mathematical Society while On the Parseval formulae for Fourier transforms appeared in the Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society.
- In the first of these papers Edmonds looks at the doubly infinite series ∑ an where the sum is over both positive and negative integers.
- The series is said to converge if the two series, one defined over the positive integers, the other defined over the negative integers, both converge.
- In this case the original series is said to have sum A = A' + A'' where A' and A'' are the sums over the positive and negative integers respectively.
- In a series of papers published over the following years Edmonds examined a whole variety of different conditions on the functions f and g which give the required equalities.
- Jyesthadeva (about 1500-about 1575)
- In [',' R C Gupta, The Madhava-Gregory series, Math.
- Jyesthadeva describes Madhava's series as follows:-
.
- This is a remarkable passage describing Madhava's series, but remember that even this passage by Jyesthadeva was written more than 100 years before James Gregory rediscovered this series expansion.
- To see how this description of the series fits with Gregory's series for arctan(x) see the biography of Madhava.
- Adriaan Cornelis Zaanen (1913-2003)
- As a student, he came into contact with the ideas of modern analysis via Zygmund's book on trigonometric series and Banach's book on linear transformations.
- During the war years he published papers such as On some orthogonal systems of functions (1939), A theorem on a certain orthogonal series and its conjugate series (1940), On some orthogonal systems of functions (1940), Uber die Existenz der Eigenfunktionen eines symmetrisierbaren Kernes Ⓣ (1942), Uber vollstetige symmetrische und symmetrisierbare Operatoren Ⓣ (1943), Transformations in Hilbert space which depend upon one parameter (1944), and On the absolute convergence of Fourier series (1945).
- The results appeared in 1946 and 1947 in a series of seven papers in the Proceedings of the Royal Academy of Sciences of The Netherlands.
- Their series of sixteen notes (all published in the Nederl.
- Salvatore Pincherle (1853-1936)
- Remaining faithful to the ideas of Weierstrass, he did not take the topological approach that later proved to be most successful, but tried to start from a series of powers of the D derivation symbol.
- Although his efforts did not prove very fruitful, he was able to study in depth the Laplace transform, iteration problems, and series of generalised factors.
- Indeed, the conception of a function as a series of coefficients was still dominant at this time ..
- He also studied linear sets of numerical sequences and of Laurent series.
- He judged the mood of the majority of mathematicians in the world correctly and through a series of hard negotiations, he found his way around roadblocks with patience yet with determination.
- Sheila Scott Macintyre (1910-1960)
- The ideas of her thesis were entirely her own; starting from a paper by Wright on functional inequalities she pursued the problems involved into the field of interpolation series in which her husband was also interested.
- Much of her work was on interpolation series associated with analytic functions.
- In a joint paper with her husband, convergence properties of the Abel series of a function, which had been discussed by several writers in the case of an integral function, were investigated for a class of functions regular in an angle.
- Mrs Macintyre later devised an integral transform in which the kernel was obtained from that of the Laplace transform by a process involving fractional differentiation, and applied it to extend the theory of the Gregory-Newton and Abel interpolation series.
- A few years later, in 1952, the two Macintyres published a more conventional type of joint paper, namely the 2-author work Theorems on the convergence and asymptotic validity of Abel's series (mentioned by Cossar in the quote above) which was published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
- Arthur Jules Morin (1795-1880)

- Ernst Lindelöf (1870-1946)
- Then he worked on analytic functions, applying results of Mittag-Leffler in a study of the asymptotic investigation of Taylor series.
- He considered analogues of Fourier series and applied them to gamma functions.
- Moreover he considers series analogous to Fourier summation formulas and applications to the gamma function and the Riemann function.
- In addition, new results concerning the Stirling series and analytic continuation are presented.
- The book concludes with an asymptotic investigation of series defined by Taylor's formula.
- Charles Fox (1897-1977)
- This paper, A class of null series, was published in the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society in 1926.
- Various Schlomilch series, representing null functions, have been discovered by Nielsen [','','1899], who gave proofs of them by arguments similar to those by which the Riemann-Lebesgue lemma is proved.
- He submitted two further papers in June 1925, The Expression of Hypergeometric Series in Terms of Similar Series, and Some Further Contributions to the Theory of Null Series and Their Connexion with Null Integrals to the same Proceedings; both were published in 1927 as was his next paper A Generalization of an Integral Equation Due to Bateman which he submitted in 1926.
- Arnaud Denjoy (1884-1974)
- In 1934 he wrote that his greatest achievements had been the integration of derivatives, the computation of the coefficients of a converging trigonometric series, a theorem on quasi-analytic functions, and differential equations on a torus.
- The second of these topics, computation of the coefficients of a converging trigonometric series, was the subject of a four volume work Lectures on the computation of coefficients in a trigonometric series which appeared between 1941 and 1949.
- These four volumes were an expanded version of work which had appeared in a series of papers by Denjoy beginning in 1920.
- However, Choquet describes the four volume work Lectures on the computation of coefficients in a trigonometric series which contains the famous Denjoy integral, as [',' G Choquet, Biography in Dictionary of Scientific Biography (New York 1970-1990).','1]:-
.
- Friedrich Hirzebruch (1927-2012)
- In 1962 Hirzebruch gave a series of seminars at Brandeis and Berkeley.
- In 1981 a series of five lectures by Hirzebruch and eight lectures by Gerard van der Geer were combined into notes by the two authors entitled Lectures on Hilbert modular surfaces.
- The first 30 Arbeitstagungen which he organised form the "First Series" with a "Second Series" beginning in 1993.

- Abraham Seidenberg (1916-1988)
- He held a Visiting Professorship at the University of Milan and he gave several series of lectures there.
- In fact he was in Milan in the middle of giving a lecture series at the time of his death.

- At the time of his death, he was in the midst of another series of lectures at the University of Milan.
- Concepts such as plane curve, intersection multiplicity, branch, genus, and linear series are introduced in a concrete, computational way; the necessary abstract algebra is kept in a secondary position whenever possible.
- Émile Borel (1871-1956)
- the theory of measure, Borel's theory of divergent series, his theory of non-analytic continuation and the theory of quasi-analytic functions all derive from ideas which make their first appearance in this paper.
- In [',' M Frechet, La vie et l’oeuvre d’Emile Borel, Enseignement mathematique 11 (1965), 1-95.','8] Borel's mathematical work is divided into the following topics: Arithmetic; Numerical series; Set theory; Measure of sets; Rarefaction of a set of measure zero; Real functions of real variables; Complex functions of complex variables; Differential equations; Geometry; Calculus of probabilities; and Mathematical physics.
- Borel, although not the first to define the sum of a divergent series, was the first to develop a systematic theory for a divergent series which he did in 1899.
- In addition, between 1921 and 1927, Borel published a series of papers on game theory and became the first to define games of strategy.
- He published many outstanding works over the years including Lecons sur la theorie des fonctions Ⓣ (1898), Lecons sur les series entieres Ⓣ (1900), Lecons sur les fonctions divergentes Ⓣ (1901), Lecons sur les fonctions de variables reelles et les developpements en series de polynomes Ⓣ (1905), Le Hasard Ⓣ (1913), Lecons sur les fonctions monogenes uniformes d'une variable complexe Ⓣ (1917), L'Espace et le temps Ⓣ (1921), Methodes et problemes de la theorie des fonctions Ⓣ (1922), Traite du calcul des probabilites et ses applications Ⓣ (1924-1934), and Principes et formules classiques du calcul des probabilites Ⓣ (1925).
- Henri Padé (1863-1953)
- In his thesis Pade made the first systematic study of what we call today Pade approximants, which are rational approximations to functions given by their power series.
- At around the same time Euler used Pade-type approximation to find the sum of a series.
- The method continued to be used from time to time by various mathematicians, for example Kummer in 1837 used Pade approximants to sum series which only converged very slowly.
- Pade established various properties of this table in his thesis and developed the ideas further in later papers, particularly in 1899 when he studies the exponential series and in 1901 when he considered (1+x)m, for m not an integer.
- Although the theory of Pade approximants which he had developed in his thesis, and in many later papers, was not quick to be taken up by many other mathematicians, it did become well known after Borel presented Pade approximants in his 1901 book on divergent series.
- Paul Butzer (1928-)
- Theory 160 (1-2) (2009), 3-18.','5] how he organised a remarkably successful series of conferences:-
.
- In all, these Oberwolfach symposia - with Bela Szokefalvi-Nagy as co-organizer from the fourth onwards - drew about 250 different experts from 24 countries including Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland, Romania and eventually Russia, the roster of participants almost representing a Who's Who in approximation theory and associated fields such as harmonic analysis, functional analysis and operator theory, integral transform theory, orthogonal polynomials, interpolation, special functions, divergent series.
- Approximately half of this volume deals with the theories of Fourier series and of Fourier integrals from a transform point of view.
- Special as this approach may seem, it not only embraces many of the topics of the classical theory but also leads to significant new results, e.g., on summation processes of Fourier series, conjugate functions, fractional integration and differentiation, limiting behaviour of solutions of partial differential equations, and saturation theory.
- The book received outstanding reviews; for example James Rovnyak [',' J Rovnyak, Review: E B Christoffel: The Influence of His Work on Mathematics and the Physical Sciences edited by P L Butzer and F Feher, Science, New Series 217 (4555) (1982), 145.','14] writes:-

- He undertook joint research with his thesis advisor Calixto Pedro Calderon and they wrote two joint papers: Weak type estimates for the Hardy-Littlewood maximal functions (1974-74); and On Abel summability of multiple Jacobi series (1974).
- Shortly after my arrival, I attended a fascinating series of lectures by Hans Lewy and became interested in nonlinear partial differential equations, variations inequalities and free-boundary problems.
- In a series of pioneering papers, Caffarelli put forward a novel methodology which eventually leads, after several truly amazing technical estimates that step by step improve the regularity of the solutions and the boundary, to full regularity under very mild assumptions.

- Over the following fourteen years he wrote 31 papers on infinite series, geometry, special functions, and number theory.
- In that topic he studied infinite series, and the gamma function as well as other special functions.

- In 1940 Levinson published Gap and density theorems in the American Mathematical Society Colloquium Publication Series.
- It was a great tribute to the young mathematician that he had been invited to write a book in a series which was reserved for distinguished senior mathematicians.
- Levinson wrote only two papers on time series, but these had a large impact.
- Shortly before his death he wrote a series of important papers on the Riemann hypothesis arising from this fundamental number theory paper.
- Leopold Kronecker (1823-1891)
- students to hear that Kronecker was questioned at his oral on a wide range of topics including the theory of probability as applied to astronomical observations, the theory of definite integrals, series and differential equations, as well as on Greek, and the history of philosophy.
- In 1870 Heine published a paper On trigonometric series in Crelle's Journal, but Kronecker had tried to persuade Heine to withdraw the paper.
- Even the concept of an infinite series, for example one which increases according to definite powers of variables, is in my opinion only permissible with the reservation that in every special case, on the basis of the arithmetic laws of constructing terms (or coefficients), ..
- certain assumptions must be shown to hold which are applicable to the series like finite expressions, and which thus make the extension beyond the concept of a finite series really unnecessary.
- Ivan Ivanovich Privalov (1891-1941)
- He was allowed to choose the topic for one of these lectures - Picard's Theorem - while the other - Summation of Trigonometrical Series - was on a topic set by the Faculty.

- Otto Szász (1884-1952)
- Szasz's main work was in real analysis, particularly Fourier series.
- His most important contributions are probably between 1915 and 1930 when he made a series of remarkable contributions to a number of different areas.
- Other work by Szasz made major contributions to questions posed by Landau on the maximum modulus of the partial sums of a power series.
- He also studied problems on power series related to work of Frigyes Riesz.
- Some of Szasz's contributions to Fourier series related to results proved by Bernstein, Hardy, Littlewood and Fejer.
- John Knopfmacher (1937-1999)
- This was followed by a series of articles on several aspects of algebra, including non-associative algebra, finite groups, Lie algebras, homology, and finite topological spaces, in journals such as the 'Bulletin' of the American Mathematical Society, and the 'Oxford Quarterly Journal of Mathematics'.
- In a profound series of papers, starting with an announcement in the 'Bulletin' of the American Mathematical Society, and developed in six successive papers in the 'Journal fur die Reine und Angewandte Mathematik' from 1972 to 1975, he laid the foundations for the theory, and obtained many of its most significant results.
- Just as we can regard the Cantor product as being a product analogue of the series of Sylvester, this new product is analogous to the classical Engel representation for real numbers.
- The growth conditions satisfied by the digits in the product are likewise shown to correspond to those required for the Engel series.
- When I left Graz, one week ago, I talked to him on his plans for his series of lectures here in Graz ..
- Takebe Katahiro (1664-1739)
- Perhaps Takebe's greatest achievement was to devise a method to calculate a series expansion of a function.
- Now we know that no such polynomial exists but Takebe found an infinite series expressing s in terms of k, namely
.
- In fact, looked at in modern terms, what Takebe was calculating was the Taylor series expansion of arcsin(√k)2 about k = 0.
- The two approaches are often complementary, as he demonstrated by showing that an infinite series that he had obtained inductively could also be derived algebraically.
- His procedure for calculating the infinite series played a key role in the development of analysis in Japan in the following decades.
- Brian Kuttner (1908-1992)
- Fourier series, strong summability, Riesz means, Norland methods, and Tauberian theory.
- Most of Kuttner's early work is on Fourier series and summability.
- Hardy quotes some of these early results of Kuttner's in his treatise Divergent series (1949).
- at the age of only 26, Kuttner proved a basic theorem in the general theory of trigonometric series, a result delightful for both the deceptive simplicity of its statement and the elegance of its proof.
- Zygmund greatly admired this theorem of Kuttner, which now occupies an honoured place in Zygmund's monumental work on trigonometric series.
- Hugh MacColl (1837-1909)
- For example The Calculus of Equivalent Statements was a series of eight papers published in the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society between 1877 and 1898.
- He published a series of nine papers entitled Symbolic Logic in The Athenaeum between 1903 and 1904, and a series of eight articles Symbolic Reasoning in Mind between 1880 and 1906.
- This little volume may be regarded as the final concentrated outcome of a series of researches begun in 1872 and continued (though with some long breaks) until today.
- Bertrand Russell reviewed the work in a five-page article [',' B Russell, Review: Symbolic Logic and Its Applications by Hugh MacColl, Mind, New Series 15 (58) (1906), 255-260.','12].

- Jozéf Hoëné Wronski (1778-1853)
- He criticised Lagrange's use of infinite series and introduced his own ideas for series expansions of a function.
- Out of this came his "universal Hoene-Wronski series" or "la serie universelle de Wronski".
- This consisted of the development of a function as a series in terms of arbitrary functions.
- The coefficients in this series are determinants now known as Wronskians (so named by Muir in 1882).
- Alfred Tauber (1866-1942)
- He lectured in Vienna on the theory of series, trigonometric series, and potential theory.
- Tauber's lack of success in being given a professorial position was certainly not due to any lack of mathematical ability, for he continued to publish a series of high quality papers.
- He obtained important results on divergent series and the name 'Tauberian Theorems' was coined by Hardy and Littlewood.
- The conditions which Tauber gave to allow him to prove the converse of Abel's limit theorem on power series are now known as 'Tauberian conditions' and appeared in Ein Satz aus der Theorie der unendlichen Reihen Ⓣ (1897).
- Maurits Escher (1898-1972)
- He later tried working with the concept of similarities, using identical motifs of diminishing size, arranged in a series of concentric circles, but as with much of his work, he was unhappy about the final quality.
- Escher used pictures to tell a story in his Metamorphosis series of designs.
- These designs brought together many of Escher's skills and show the transformation from one distinct object to another, by means of a series of slight changes to a regular pattern in the plane.
- An Italian coastline is transformed through a series of convex polygons into a regular pattern in the plane until finally a distinct, coloured, human motif emerges, signifying his change of perspective from landscape work to regular division of the plane.
- Escher fell ill initially in 1964 whilst delivering a series of lectures in North America.

- He published these lectures in the first volume of the series American Mathematical Society Colloquium Publications.
- Bernhard Riemann (1826-1866)
- He spent thirty months working on his Habilitation dissertation which was on the representability of functions by trigonometric series.
- While preceding papers have shown that if a function possesses such and such a property, then it can be represented by a Fourier series, we pose the reverse question: if a function can be represented by a trigonometric series, what can one say about its behaviour.
- Riemann studied the convergence of the series representation of the zeta function and found a functional equation for the zeta function.
- Thomas Bromwich (1875-1929)
- He worked on infinite series, particularly during his time in Galway.

- we should like to remark upon the elegance of mathematical expression which is possible in Spanish and to suggest that with the present volume the new series of monographs has made a most satisfactory beginning.
- Hilda Geiringer (1893-1973)
- This was awarded in 1917 for a thesis on Fourier series in two variables.
- Siegmund-Schultze writes in [',' R Siegmund-Schultze, Hilda Geiringer von Mises, Charlier Series, Ideology, and the human side of the emancipation of applied mathematics at the University of Berlin during the 1920s, Historia Mathematica 20 (1993), 364-381.','3]:-
.
- The debate over Geiringer's theses for Habilitation opens up a chapter of the history of mathematical statistics, namely, expansions of a discrete distribution with an infinite number of values in a series in successive derivatives of the Poisson distribution with respect to the parameter.
- She wrote up her outstanding series of lectures on the geometrical foundations of mechanics and, although they were never properly published, these were widely used in the United States for many years.

- An example of a paper motivated by his study of Ramanujan's work is Hypergeometric series and continued fractions (1987).
- The author extends much of the work mentioned above to basic hypergeometric series.
- Maurice Auslander (1926-1994)
- It may appear strange that his first paper is the third in a series of papers entitled On the dimension of modules and algebras but this is because it was one of a series of papers with this title in the Nagoya Mathematics Journal by a number of distinguished mathematicians.
- In 1957 he published the sixth paper in the series On the dimension of modules and algebras.
- Auslander's two papers in this series contain the now standard result that the global dimension of a ring can be computed from knowledge of the cyclic modules.

- He wrote 30 books and a fair number of papers on infinite series, equations, differential equations and geometry.
- N Ya Sanin and A V Letnikov published a series of papers in Matem.
- Particularly given the topics on which Laurent worked, it is easy to assume that Laurent series must be named after him.
- However this is not the case and Laurent series are in fact named after Pierre Laurent.
- Alfréd Haar (1885-1933)
- Haar asked a series of fundamental questions about systems of orthonormal functions on the interval [0, 1].
- Haar wrote: one wants to be able to determine sufficient conditions that a series of such functions is convergent; one wants examples of relatively sensible functions which do not converge in the pointwise or uniform sense; one wants to understand how summation methods may be used to overcome the problems of divergence; and one wants to know exactly when, if the series of partial sums of an orthogonal expansion of a function converges, its limit equals the original function.
- He constructed what is now known as Haar's orthonormal basis to answer the question of divergence of continuous functions expanded as series of orthonormal systems of functions.
- Patrick Moran (1917-1988)
- He attended a variety of courses in 1938: J A Todd on differential geometry, M H A Newman on analysis, A E Ingham on algebra, H Heilbronn on the theory of numbers, S Goldstein on electricity and hydrodynamics, E Cunningham on statics and dynamics, J C Burkill on theory of real functions and W W Rogosinski on Fourier series.
- In 1939 he took courses: M H A Newman on topology, A S Besicovitch on integration, F Smithies on integral equations, J C Burkill on the theory of real functions, W W Rogosinski on Fourier series, and G U Yule on statistics.
- Some of the first papers he published on statistics were Random associations on a lattice (1947), The random division of an interval (1947), Some theorems on time series (1947), On the method of paired comparisons (1947), and Rank correlation and permutation distributions (1948).

- Maurice Kendall (1907-1983)
- Kendall continued a remarkable stream of research papers on topics such as the theory of k-statistics, time series, and rank correlation methods and a monograph Rank Correlation in 1948.
- In 1963 he published (jointly with P A P Moran) Geometrical probability followed by Time series (1973) in which Kendall states his objectives to bridge the gap between "sophisticated theory and practical applications" in the field of time series and to "treat the subject in its entirety for the benefit of the practising statistician".
- He also published A course in multivariate analysis and Cluster analysis as well a whole series of articles Studies in the history of probability and statistics.
- George Mackey (1916-2006)
- He then produced a series of important papers on group representations including On induced representations of groups (1951), Induced representations of locally compact groups (1952), and Symmetric and anti symmetric Kronecker squares and intertwining numbers of induced representations of finite groups (1953).

- His thesis Contribution a la theorie des series trigonometriques generalisees et des series a fonctions orthogonales Ⓣ was supervised by Otakar Borvka, and he was awarded the degree Rerum Naturum Doctor in 1928.
- The first was An extension of the Phragmen-Lindelof theorem while the second was On summable trigonometrical series: an extension of uniqueness theorems.
- The first gives, under certain rather complex conditions, inversion formulae for trigonometric integrals and the second asserts that under the same conditions the difference between the given trigonometric integral and the trigonometric series of a certain function will be uniformly summable to zero throughout a given interval.
- In Chapter VI he gives some results on the inversion of order of integration in a trigonometric integral equivalent to the integration of trigonometric series term by term.
- Gösta Mittag-Leffler (1846-1927)
- In this paper Mittag-Leffler proposed a series of general topological notions on infinite point sets based on Cantor's new set theory [',' L Garding, Mittag-Leffler’s and Sonya Kovalevski’s mathematical papers, in Mathematics and Mathematicians : Mathematics in Sweden before 1950 (Providence, R.I., 1998), 85-96.','8]:-
.
- Between 1900 and 1905 Mittag-Leffler published a series of five papers which he called "Notes" on the summation of divergent series.
- The aim of these notes was to construct the analytical continuation of a power series outside its circle of convergence.
- Ulisse Dini (1845-1918)
- Dini looked at infinite series and generalised results such as a theorem of Kummer and one of Riemann, the ideas for which had first emerged in work of Dirichlet.
- He discovered a condition, now known as the Dini condition, ensuring the convergence of a Fourier series in terms of the convergence of a definite integral.
- As well as trigonometric series, Dini studied results on potential theory.

- Anastácio da Cunha (1744-1787)
- De Pombal put through a series of major reforms, and around 1758-59 he moved against the Jesuits and the Society of Jesus.
- Da Cunha develops a criterion for the convergence of a series which he uses to define the exponential function in a rather modern way, and from these develops the binomial series.
- In Principios Matematicos da Cunha also gave a definition of the convergence of a series which is equivalent to Cauchy's convergence criterion.
- Grace Alele-Williams (1932-)
- The African Mathematics Programme organized writing workshops in Africa that produced the Entebbe Modern Mathematics Series.
- Her paper gives the following conclusion about the Entebbe Mathematics Series comprising 67 volumes of texts which cover the entire primary, training, secondary and sixth form levels:-
.
- The Entebbe Mathematics Series have sometimes been dubbed American but this is to ignore the valuable contribution of the African participants, who feel keenly the African origin of the series.
- Vojtch Jarník (1897-1970)
- He studied the problem for the particular case of the ellipsoid in a series of papers.

- On the Rule will be seen, along its whole length, and close to the upper edge of the groove, a series of graduations, with an identically similar series along the upper edge of the Slide.
- Another series of graduations will also be seen on the Rule along the lower edge of the groove, with a corresponding series on the Slide.
- Christoph Gudermann (1798-1852)
- His own contributions tended to be a whole series of special cases (although this could not have been obvious at the time) which were forgotten later when the general results which included them were found.
- Gudermann, at this time, was particularly interested in the theory of elliptic functions and in the expansion of functions by power series.
- In particular his use of power series in the study of the hyperbolic functions is of importance.
- The transformation of his conception of an analytic function from a differentiable function to a function expandable into a convergent power series was made during this early period of Weierstrass's mathematical activity.
- Ernesto Pascal (1865-1940)
- Let us note, however, that in 1897 he began publication of his Repertorio di matematiche superiori Ⓣ series of texts.

.
- Other texts by Pascal appeared in the Manuale Hoepli series.
- As an example of one of the many works in this series we quote from the review by Edwin Bailey Elliott of Pascal's I Gruppi Continui di Trasformazioni Ⓣ (1903):-
.
- Paul Bachmann (1837-1920)
- In view of the ambitious series of volumes by Bachmann; giving a comprehensive exposition of number theory, a series not yet completed, the appearance of a new volume on the elements of the subject, quite independent of the series mentioned, will doubtless cause some surprise.
- The author believes that the present book, both in contents and in foundation, may well be considered as a supplementary volume to his former series.
- Pierre Bonnet (1819-1892)
- One year before this, in 1843, Bonnet had written a paper on the convergence of series with positive terms.
- Another paper on series in 1849 was to earn him an award from the Brussels Academy.

- Between 1844 and 1867 he published a series of papers on the differential geometry of surfaces.
- Abraham Gelbart (1911-1994)
- in 1940 for his 26-page thesis On the Growth Properties of a Function of Two Complex Variables Given by its Power Series Expansion.
- It is of particular value in the Weierstrass-Hadamard approach, i.e., in obtaining properties of a function from the coefficients of its power series expansion.
- In this paper we shall obtain growth properties in terms of the coefficients of the power series expansion of a function f (z1, z2) of two complex variables analytic in special domains of the type mentioned above; first, with the aid of Bergman's integral formula, along the two-dimensional surfaces common to the bounding hypersurfaces, and then, along a class of two-dimensional surfaces lying in only one of the bounding hypersurfaces and having a line of contact with another bounding hypersurface.
- The Distinguished Scientist Lecture Series at Bard College originated in 1979 when Nobel laureate physicist Paul Dirac accepted an invitation from Abe Gelbart and The Bard Center to deliver a lecture titled "The Discovery of Antimatter." The talk presented a view of science rarely seen by the general public - as a record of personal achievement as well as a body of facts and theories.
- Joseph Raabe (1801-1859)
- Today Raabe's name is mostly remembered for Raabe's Test for convergence of series.
- He had published another paper on series while still in Vienna, however, namely Uber Reihen, deren Differenzenreihen wiederkehren Ⓣ (1829).
- Then the series a1 + a2 + a3 + ..
- This test, which is an extension of d'Alembert's ratio test, often succeeds for series in which the terms contain factorials, where d'Alembert's simple ratio test is inconclusive.
- Pierre Cartier (1932-)
- According to Bourbaki's method, we studied reports on the topics which were to be treated in the series.
- I remember that we discussed many things, especially a text written by Laurent Schwartz on the foundations of Lie groups; it was one of the first drafts in the well-known series of Bourbaki on Lie groups
.
- In this paper, the distinguished author presents a series of philosophical musings based on the distinction between a "true finite" set and a "theoretical finite" set.

- Orlicz's contribution is important in the following areas in mathematics: function spaces (mainly Orlicz spaces), orthogonal series, unconditional convergence in Banach spaces, summability, vector-valued functions, metric locally convex spaces, Saks spaces, real functions, measure theory and integration, polynomial operators and modular spaces.
- For example, the Orlicz-Pettis theorem says that in Banach spaces the classes of weakly subseries convergent and norm unconditionally convergent series coincide.
- Alfonso Del Re (1859-1921)
- With a later 1911 memoir, Alfonso Del Re illustrated a series of arguments on the independence of his series of postulates, in addition to those implicit in the reference to Huntington.
- B A Bernstein in a paper read before the American Mathematical Society (in San Francisco) on 25 October 1913, after quoting the contributions of Charles Peirce, Edward Huntington and H M Sheffer, proposed a series of postulates of completion in terms of the operation "exception".
- Bernstein himself deduced the sufficiency of these from the series of postulates indicated by A Del Re in his 'Logical Algebra', adding new evidence to those implicit in the reference to Huntington.
- Ernst Steinitz (1871-1928)
- He also wrote several significant papers on conditionally convergent series such as Bedingt konvergente Reihen und konvexe Systeme Ⓣ (1913).
- In fact Edmund Landau had suggested to Steinitz that he read Paul Levy's 1905 paper on conditionally convergent series but Steinitz found this unsatisfactory writing in his 1913 paper that Landau's suggestion:-
.
- However much we must deplore publications which are in such a deficient form that extensive commentaries are necessary if they are to be understood, we must admit that M Levy has largely proved the proposition on the indicated series with usually complex numbers in the quoted work.
- In fact, perhaps surprisingly, it was in the context of his work on series that he set out what today is often called the 'Steinitz replacement theorem' for vector spaces.
- Douglas Northcott (1916-2005)
- He then went on to study for Part III, taking courses on Fourier series and divergent series from G H Hardy which strongly influenced him.

- Simon Newcomb (1835-1909)
- He wrote a paper showing how the coordinates of a planet might be represented by trigonometric series.
- Laplace had devised a method involving cosine series for computing the perturbing force on a planet caused by other planets.
- The coefficients in the series were known as 'Laplace coefficients' but the drawback of the method was that it only worked for circular orbits.
- Newcomb showed how to extend Laplace's series to give a perturbing function in the case of elliptical orbits by introducing differential operators which act on the Laplace coefficients.

- The first was Summation of some series of binomial coefficients by means of Cauchy's integral formula (1944) followed by Remark on the middle binomial coefficient (Norwegian) (1944), Summation of some series of binomial coefficients on the basis of Cauchy's integral formula (Norwegian) (1945), A group-theoretical remark of E Hoff-Hansen concerning certain expressions in the quantification theory (1947), and On making precise and generalizing the concept of relation (Norwegian) (1948).
- Aubert was also a driving force behind the meetings in the series "Ski and mathematics" at Gausdal Hotel, where teachers and students from universities and colleges from all over the country gathered during the first week of the new year for outdoor activities and inspiring lectures.
- In the early 1980s, Aubert criticised Simon's irrelevant use of mathematics beginning a fascinating debate in which they responded to each other in a series of papers.

- He gave a wonderful series of lectures on special functions, asymptotic analysis, and approximation theory.
- While at MRI he gave an extensive series of lectures on the history of philosophy, focusing especially on Spinoza, whose work he believed, contains the most meaningful elements of those ethical and intellectual ideals which alone can provide a personal bedrock in an uncertain, frenetically changing world.
- Terence Tao (1975-)
- The material starts at the very beginning - the construction of the number systems and set theory, and then goes on to the basics of analysis (limits, series, continuity, differentiation, Riemann integration), through to power series, several-variable calculus and Fourier analysis, and finally the Lebesgue integral.
- In 2010 the next in Tao's series was published An epsilon of room, I: real analysis.

- Results from his doctoral thesis appeared in the paper On the summability of Cauchy-Fourier series (1950).
- The first result, regarding the representation of an even number, is an approximation to the unproved Goldbach conjecture and supersedes an earlier proof of the same proposition by Estermann (1932) which made use of an unproved generalized Riemann hypothesis for all Dirichlet L-series.
- Panagiotis Zervos (1878-1952)
- thesis entitled On the series and the theorem of Descartes (Greek) for which he was awarded his doctorate by the University of Athens in 1901.
- Since 1925 the Paris Academy of Sciences had been commissioning a series of monographs reviewing current mathematical problems, the series having the title Memorial des sciences mathematiques Ⓣ.
- Zervos, as a recognised world leader on the Monge Problem was asked to write Le probleme de Monge Ⓣ which appeared as No 53 in the series in 1932, see [',' P Zervos, Le probleme de Monge, Memorial des sciences mathematiques 53 (1932), 62 pages.','2].
- Onorato Nicoletti (1872-1929)
- The other works relate to ordinary differential equations, or to those with partial derivatives also of a higher order than the 2nd, and they all have particular importance for the completion of the results obtained with the method of successive approximations and with that of Riemann as well as for the studies that are taking place on the 2nd order equations of hyperbolic type, in which the Laplace series is finite.
- He also jointly edited a series of mathematics textbooks for secondary schools along with Roberto Marcolongo which was published by Perrella in Naples.
- His two books with Maroni and with Sansone appear in this series.
- Other publications concern differential geometry, Taylor's multiple series, the theory of limits, that of analytic functions; two of these works were also translated abroad.
- Aleksandr Osipovich Gelfond (1906-1968)
- (In 1966 Alan Baker proved Gelfond's Conjecture in general.) Gelfond's papers in 1933 and 1934, which include his remarkable achievement, are: Gram determinants for stationary series (written jointly with Khinchin) (1933); A necessary and sufficient criterion for the transcendence of a number (1933); Functions that take integer values at the points of a geometric progression (1933); On the seventh problem of D Hilbert (1934); and On the seventh problem of Hilbert (1934).

- Runge then worked on a procedure for the numerical solution of algebraic equations in which the roots were expressed as infinite series of rational functions of the coefficients.
- He succeeded in arranging the spectral lines of helium in two spectral series and, until 1897, this was thought to be evidence that hydrogen was a mixture of two elements.
- In these spectra we found for the first time series systems of two different multiplicities.
- William Jones (1675-1749)
- It included the differential calculus, infinite series, and is also famed since the symbol π is used in it with its modern meaning.
- These included transcripts of Newton's manuscripts, letters and results obtained with the method of infinite series which Newton had discovered in about 1664.
- With assistance from Newton himself, Jones produced Analysis per quantitatum series, fluxiones, ac differentia Ⓣ in 1711 although it should be noted that this first edition of 1711 did not record either Newton's name nor that of Jones.
- Howard Aiken (1900-1973)
- Aiken's 1937 proposal for a calculating machine began with a series of paragraphs devoted to an account of the pioneers in machine calculation: Pascal, Moreland, Leibniz, and, above all, Babbage.
- This same historical homage characterizes the series of articles [with Grace Hopper] in 'Electrical Engineering' in 1946.
- He continued to work at Harvard on this series of machines, working next on the Mark III and finally the Mark IV up to 1952.
- Henry White (1861-1943)
- Klein attended the Columbian Exposition and then went to Evanston to spend two weeks there at White's invitation to give a series of lectures on contemporary mathematical research.
- Now, why would it not be possible to combine with this miscellaneous program (which ought by all means to be kept up) something more akin to university models? Would not a series of three or six lectures on nearly related topics, if well chosen, prove attractive and useful to larger numbers?
.
- White's proposal was indeed taken up by the American Mathematical Society and the result was the American Mathematical Society Colloquium lectures which are published as the American Mathematical Society Colloquium Publication series.
- Edmond Laguerre (1834-1886)
- He found a divergent series, the first few terms of which gave a good approximation to the integral.
- He went on to investigate properties of the polynomials, proving orthogonality relations and also showing that an arbitrary function could be expanded in a 'Fourier type' series in Laguerre polynomials.
- That it was developed from a divergent series is especially remarkable.

- He examined series expansions and looked at series with fractional powers.
- Guido Fubini (1879-1943)
- A series of decrees removed Jews from positions of influence in government, banking and education.

- This led him to solve a whole series of engineering problems which he was writing up as a textbook towards the end of his life.
- Yang Hui (about 1238-about 1298)
- Yang also gave formulae for the sum of certain series, for example he found the sum of the squares of the natural numbers from m2 to (m+n)2 and showed that

- Al-Umawi (about 1400-1489)
- After describing the very briefly the basic arithmetical operations of addition and multiplication, al-Umawi moves on to discuss the summation of series.
- Among the series al-Umawi considers are arithmetic and geometric series.
- Alice T Schafer (1915-2009)
- The curve is assumed to be analytic and thus can be represented in the neighbourhood of the point in question by power series.
- Choice of the proper projective coordinate system permits the reduction of these power series to simple canonical forms.
- With the aid of these canonical power series, [Schafer] derives numerous theorems concerning surfaces which osculate the given curve at the singular point, concerning the sections of the tangent developable in the neighbourhood of the singular point and concerning the projections of the given curve.
- David Enskog (1884-1947)
- Is it now certain that all the terms that appear in your calculations have a real significance? Is it in other words certain that the function which is sought can be developed in a series of the type assumed? But however fundamentally important I may consider this question, and however much I may advise that everything be done to demonstrate the correctness of the assumptions made, I would nevertheless conclude by saying that I do not regard it as impossible to defend the study in question, even if the difficulty cannot be overcome.
- There was still a problem in that Enskog had failed to prove that his series converged.
- Enskog used Hilbert's methods to work out a series expansion of the velocity distribution function f and wrote this up for his doctoral dissertation at Uppsala in 1917.
- Christian Juel (1855-1935)
- However, at first it was a journal aimed at school teachers of mathematics but in 1890, when Juel was editor, it was split into Series A containing school level mathematics, and Series B which was a scientific journal containing articles on advanced topics.
- Series B allowed articles in foreign languages and contributions from foreign mathematicians began to appear in the journal beginning at this time.
- Mihailo Petrovi (1868-1943)
- Since 1925 the Paris Academy of Sciences had been commissioning a series of monographs reviewing current mathematical problems, the series having the title Memorial des sciences mathematiques Ⓣ.

- Emilio Baiada (1914-1984)
- The author uses the results of Toeplitz and Caratheodory concerning the coefficients of the Fourier-Stieltjes series of a non-decreasing function and some theorems of Ghizzetti concerning the coefficients of a function between given bounds in order to characterize functions which are i) non-negative, ii) with values between 0 and 1, iii) positive and bounded away from zero.
- We have mentioned some of Baiada's publications above but we note that his output totals 60 scientific publications on a wide range of different fields in analysis: ordinary and partial differential equations, Fourier series and the series expansion of orthonormal functions, topology, real analysis, functional analysis, calculus of variations, measure and integration, optimisation, and the theory of functions.
- Jacques-Louis Lions (1928-2001)
- In Paris he began a weekly numerical analysis seminar series and, later, he set up a numerical analysis laboratory.
- He was even able to teach this material in the classroom, which was quite a pedagogical challenge! In a series of works begun with Evariste Sanchez-Palencia in 1995, he also developed the theory of 'sensitive problems', particularly as they arise in the theory of elastic shells.
- In a long series of notes published in the Comptes Rendus until 2001, Lions returned to numerical analysis, and in particular to parallel computation and domain decomposition methods.

- He suggested problems on general orthogonal systems to Marcinkiewicz and this resulted in a series of papers from him on this topic.
- Vladimir A Steklov (1864-1926)
- He wrote General Theory of Fundamental Functions in which he examined expansions of functions as series in an infinite system of orthogonal eigenfunctions.

- He studied a generalisation of Parseval's equality for Fourier series to his general setting showing this to be a fundamental property.
- Raymond Paley (1907-1933)
- Paley had already proved impressive results on Fourier series and had collaborated with Littlewood, his supervisor.
- Zygmund's book Trigonometric Series published in 1935 owes a debt to the joint work that he carried out with Paley.
- Soon after his arrival in America, however, certain studies of lacunary series which Paley had already begun suggested a new attack on the theory of interpolation and allied trigonometrical problems.
- Eduard Heine (1821-1881)
- Before arriving at Halle, Heine published on partial differential equations and during his first few years teaching at Halle he wrote papers on the theory of heat, summation of series, continued fractions and elliptic functions.

- Ilya Iosifovich Piatetski-Shapiro (1929-2009)
- In the following year the Moscow Mathematical Society awarded him their Young Mathematician Prize for his work On the problem of uniqueness of expansion of a function in a trigonometric series which he had undertaken while an undergraduate.
- Among his main achievements are: the solution of Salem's problem about the uniqueness of the expansion of a function into a trigonometric series; the example of a non symmetric homogeneous domain in dimension 4 answering Cartan's question, and the complete classification (with E Vinberg and G Gindikin) of all bounded homogeneous domains; the solution of Torelli's problem for K3 surfaces (with I Shafarevich); a solution of a special case of Selberg's conjecture on unipotent elements, which paved the way for important advances in the theory of discrete groups, and many important results in the theory of automorphic functions, e.g., the extension of the theory to the general context of semi-simple Lie groups (with I Gelfand), the general theory of arithmetic groups operating on bounded symmetric domains, the first 'converse theorem' for GL(3), the construction of L-functions for automorphic representations for all the classical groups (with S Rallis) and the proof of the existence of non arithmetic lattices in hyperbolic spaces of arbitrary large dimension (with M Gromov).

- Ernesto Cesàro (1859-1906)
- Sur diverses questions d'arithmetique Ⓣ was the first of a series which Cesaro wrote on the theory of numbers.

- He also contributed to the study of divergent series, a topic which interested him early in his career, and we should note that in his work on mathematical physics he was a staunch follower of Maxwell.
- Robert Woodhouse (1773-1827)
- He wrote an three papers in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society in 1801, 1802 and an important book Principles of Analytic Calculation in 1803 which attempted to put the calculus on a rigorous algebraic foundation using a formal series expansions method similar to that developed by Lagrange [',' Biography by Harvey W Becher, in Dictionary of National Biography (Oxford, 2004).','2]:-

- Stanisaw Saks (1897-1942)
- One of the works for which Saks is most famous is their joint book Analytic functions which appeared in 1938 as volume eight in the Mathematical Monographs series.
- This was not Saks' first monograph, however, for he had already published an important volume in the Mathematical Monographs series.
- This earlier volume, the volume two in the series published in 1933, was his famous work Theory of the integral.
- John Tukey (1915-2000)
- Tukey's first major contribution to statistics was his introduction of modern techniques for the estimation of spectra of time series.
- And when I have pondered about why such techniques as the spectrum analysis of time series have proved so useful, it has become clear that their 'dealing with fluctuations' aspects are, in many circumstances, of lesser importance than the aspects that would already have been required to deal effectively with the simpler case of very extensive data where fluctuations would no longer be a problem.

- Absolute convergence is equivalent to unconditional convergence of series of points of a Banach space if and only if the space is finite-dimensional.
- Johann Balmer (1825-1898)
- However, despite being a mathematics teacher and lecturer all his life, Balmer is best remembered for his work on spectral series and his formula, given in 1885, for the wavelengths of the spectral lines of the hydrogen atom.
- In his paper of 1885 Balmer suggested that giving n other small integer values would give the wavelengths of other series produced by the hydrogen atom.
- Indeed this prediction turned out to be correct and these series of lines were later observed.
- Louis de Branges (1932-)
- Louis de Branges of Purdue University has received the first Ostrowski Prize for developing powerful Hilbert space methods which led him to a surprising proof of the Bieberbach Conjecture on power series for conformal mappings.

- We immediately got down to preliminary editorial work of a series of chapters which, according to Lie's plan, would be included in the work.
- He has also, during this time, developed a series of important ideas of his own, but has in a most unselfish manner declined to describe them here in any great detail or continuity, satisfying himself with submitting short pieces to 'Mathematische Annalen' and, particularly, 'Leipziger Berichte'.
- Under such circumstances the third volume of the series, but the first one to be printed, has now been put into our hands.
- Aleksandr Yakovlevich Khinchin (1894-1959)

- Lee Lorch (1915-2014)
- in 1941 for his thesis Some Problems on the Borel Summability of Fourier Series.

- I think then I would have to jump and say that a series of papers I did with Joseph Roitberg and later also with Guido Mislin on questions relating to failures of cancellation in homotopy theory are good papers.
- We were neither of us pure category- theorists and I think that these series of papers we wrote on group-like structures in general categories, and on general homotopy theory and duality, were two very significant contributions to the applications of these categorical notions that suggested ideas and problems.
- Adolf Hurwitz (1859-1919)

- The author remarks, "there does not seem to appear in the literature any method for improving the accuracy of the characteristic values, except by cumbersome iteration." She then develops a method which corrects not only an approximate characteristic value, but also the coefficients in the series for the periodic solutions.
- In 1967 Blanch retired from her job at Wright Patterson Air Force Base and was honoured with the publication of Blanch anniversary volume (1967), which contained a series of papers by her friends.

.
- Although the idea of probability as a measure of the observer's belief that an event will happen had already been conceived by F P Ramsey in 1926, Bruno de Finetti was unaware of Ramsey's work and, moreover, his chief interest was for coherent probability assessments and not for rational decisions; see the obituary by D V Lindley [',' D V Lindley, Obituary : Bruno de Finetti, 1906-1985, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A 149 (1986), 252.','7] for more information.
- A key tool for him was nomenclature: for example, as reported by D V Lindley [',' D V Lindley, Obituary : Bruno de Finetti, 1906-1985, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A 149 (1986), 252.','7], [',' D V Lindley, De Finetti, Bruno, in Encyclopedia of Statistical Sciences (Supplement) (New York, 1989), 46-47.','8], he insisted that "random variables" should more appropriately be called "random quantities", for "What varies?".

- Adolphe Quetelet (1796-1874)
- Chance, that mysterious, much abused word, should be considered only a veil for our ignorance; it is a phantom which exercises the most absolute empire over the common mind, accustomed to consider events only as isolated, but which is reduced to naught before the philosopher, whose eye embraces a long series of events and whose penetration is not led astray by variations, which disappear when he gives himself sufficient perspective to seize the laws of nature.
- It seems to me that that which relates to the human species, considered en masse, is of the order of physical facts: the greater the number of individuals, the more the influence of the individual will is effaced, being replaced by the series of general facts that depend on the general causes according to which society exists and maintains itself.

- Not only space, but also time has to be discretized, and time derivatives can also be represented as finite difference approximations, that is in terms of values at discrete time levels [','R W Riddaway, Numerical Methods, revised March 2001 (by M Hortal) (Meteorological Training Course Lecture Series, 2002) ','17, p.
- The explicit scheme is much easier to solve than the implicit one, as it is possible to compute the new value of ψl at time n+1 for every grid point, provided the values of ψl are known for every grid point at the current time step n [','R W Riddaway, Numerical Methods, revised March 2001 (by M Hortal) (Meteorological Training Course Lecture Series, 2002) ','17, p.
- The implicit scheme, on the other hand, is absolutely stable, but it results in a system of simultaneous equations, so is more difficult to solve [','R W Riddaway, Numerical Methods, revised March 2001 (by M Hortal) (Meteorological Training Course Lecture Series, 2002) ','17, p.
- When this series is substituted into an equation of the form Lψ = f (x), where L is a differential operator, you get a so-called residual function:
.
- The residual function is zero when the solution of the equation above is exact, therefore the series coefficients an should be chosen such that the residual function is minimised, i.e.
- In the majority of cases, polynomial approximations, such as Fourier series or Chebyshev polynomials, are the best choice; but when it comes to weather forecasting, the use of spherical coordinates demands that spherical harmonics are used as expansion functions.
- A simple example that can be solved in terms of a Fourier series illustrates the idea of the spectral method: One of the processes described by the primitive equations is advection (which is the transport of for instance heat in the atmosphere), and the non-linear advection equation is given by
.
- Having chosen appropriate boundary conditions, the equation can be expanded in terms of a finite Fourier series:

- where Fm is a series in terms of the um.
- There are several methods which convert differential equations to discrete problems, for example the least-square method or the Galerkin method, and which can be used in order to choose the time derivative such that the residual function is as close to zero as possible [','R W Riddaway, Numerical Methods, revised March 2001 (by M Hortal) (Meteorological Training Course Lecture Series, 2002) ','17, p.
- Most commonly, Fast Fourier Transforms are used, but in principle all transform methods make it possible to switch between a spectral representation and a grid-point representation [','R W Riddaway, Numerical Methods, revised March 2001 (by M Hortal) (Meteorological Training Course Lecture Series, 2002) ','17, p.
- Furthermore, products with more than two components suffer from aliasing, meaning that waves that are too short to be resolved for a certain grid resolution falsely appear as longer waves [','R W Riddaway, Numerical Methods, revised March 2001 (by M Hortal) (Meteorological Training Course Lecture Series, 2002) ','17, p.
- Spherical harmonics are two-dimensional, so they are much more difficult to solve than expansions in terms of Fourier series.
- Moreover, a finite series expansion in terms of linearly independent functions approximates the variation of ψ within a specified element (e.g.

- An analysis of the weights discovered suggests that they belong to two series both being decimal in nature with each decimal number multiplied and divided by two, giving for the main series ratios of 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, and 500.

- These include: a formula for the ecliptic; the Newton-Gauss interpolation formula; the formula for the sum of an infinite series; Lhuilier's formula for the circumradius of a cyclic quadrilateral.
- Of particular interest is the approximation to the value of π which was the first to be made using a series.

- Euler allowed the algebraic operations in his analytic expressions to be used an infinite number of times, resulting in infinite series, infinite products, and infinite continued fractions.
- He later suggests that a transcendental function should be studied by expanding it in a power series.
- For example it had led him to define the gamma function and to solve the problem which had defeated mathematicians for some considerable time, namely summing the series

- Fourier showed that some discontinuous functions could be represented by what today we call a Fourier series.

- Fourier's work would lead eventually to the clarification of the function concept when in 1829 Dirichlet proved results concerning the convergence of Fourier series, thus clarifying the distinction between a function and its representation.
- However, despite this, when he begins to prove theorems about expressing an arbitrary function as a Fourier series, he uses the fact that his arbitrary function is continuous in the modern sense!
.
- It therefore has a Taylor series which converges everywhere but only equals the function at 0.
- In 1876 Paul du Bois-Reymond made the distinction between a function and its representation even clearer when he constructed a continuous function whose Fourier series diverges at a point.
- Calculus history
- This is the first known example of the summation of an infinite series.
- Barrow was in some way to blame for this since the publisher of Barrow's work had gone bankrupt and publishers were, after this, wary of publishing mathematical works! Newton's work on Analysis with infinite series was written in 1669 and circulated in manuscript.
- Similarly his Method of fluxions and infinite series was written in 1671 and published in English translation in 1736.
- In these two works Newton calculated the series expansion for sin x and cos x and the expansion for what was actually the exponential function, although this function was not established until Euler introduced the present notation ex.

- INFINITE SERIES
.
- In the remainder of the book free use is made of the notation and principles of the Differential and Integral Calculus; I have for some time been convinced that beginners should not attempt to study Infinite Series in any detail until after they have mastered the differentiation and integration, of the simpler functions, and the geometrical meaning of these operations.
- In Chapter V will be found an account of Pringsheim's theory of double series, which has not been easily accessible to English readers hitherto.
- In obtaining the fundamental power-series and products constant reference is made to the principle of uniform convergence, and particularly to Tannery's theorems (Art.
- 50, 51, 83) on the continuity of power-series, a theorem which, in spite of its importance, has usually not been adequately discussed in text-books.
- Chapter XI contains a tolerably complete account of the recently developed theories of non-convergent and asymptotic series; the treatment has been confined to the arithmetic side, the applications to function-theory being outside the scope of the book.

- I hope that most double-limit problems, which present themselves naturally, in connexion with integration of series, differentiation of integrals, and so forth, can be settled without difficulty by using the results given here.
- Chapter X of the first edition ("Complex Series and Products") has been broken up into two chapters, X and XI, the first of these containing the general theory of complex series and products, and the second dealing with special series and functions.
- Chapter Xl of the first edition ("Non-Convergent and Asymptotic Series") now becomes Chapter XII.
- Here the entire discussion of the theory of summable series, apart from the historical introduction, has been omitted, as Dr Bromwich felt that an adequate account of the subject with its later developments would require more space than could be given to it in the present volume.
- The part of the chapter devoted to, asymptotic series has been enlarged, and contains, among other new matter, an exposition of the asymptotic expansions of the Bessel functions.
- Room has also been found for a discussion of trigonometrical series, including Stokes's transformation and Gibbs's phenomenon.
- Appendix III ("Infinite Integrals and Gama Functions") was originally written in connection with the discussion of summable series, and might therefore have been omitted.

- D'Arcy Thompson on Greek irrationals
- The following is a table of the side and diagonal numbers ([side and diagonal numbers] (literally [number of units in the sides and diagonals])) - Proclus (28, 10) gives the series as far as 12, 17, and adds - [and always thus (etc.)].
- We begin, necessarily, with One, as the [ beginning] or origin of both series; for, as Theon says, Unity is the first principle of all configurations, and consequently there is in Unity a [ rule] both of diagonal and of side.
- Firstly, the successive results are closer and closer approximations to that irrational number (viz., √2) which is the 'limit', the unattainable limit, of the series.
- This property of the side- and- diagonal series, that not merely is the square of the one in alternate excess and defect as compared with twice the square on the other, but that this alternate excess and defect is in every case measured by one unit, is expressly stated by Theon and by Proclus.
- [One], in short, is the word used both for that unit with which the series on either side begins, and for that unit which is at every successive stage the measure of excess or defect.
- It is the beginning, the [start] of the whole series , then again, as the series proceeds, the 'One' has to be imported into each succeeding Dyad, where it defines ([defines]) the amount of excess or defect, and equates or equalizes ([equals]) the two incompatible quantities.
- This point, this precise nature of the agency of the 'One', and the simple explanation which it involves of the precise meaning of [to define] or [to equal], both seem to me to be made clear by our study of the Greek side-and-diagonal series; but the point is lost as soon as we replace that formula by the continued fractions of our modem arithmetic.
- Prof Taylor, so it seems to me, has treated the successive convergents of the continued fraction as identical with the successive fractions of the Greek series.
- As he says, 'they never actually meet, since none of the "convergents" is ever the same as its successor, but by proceeding far enough with the series we can make the interval between two successive "convergents" less than any assigned difference, however small.' Precisely so; but all the while that 'monad' in which the excess or defect consists is never seen in the convergents of the continued fraction; and indeed it is so effectually concealed that Prof Taylor neither recognizes its importance nor even mentions it at all.
- identical with the series of convergent fractions beginning 1/1 , 2/1 , 5/3 &c., which we may set forth as follows, in tabular form:
.
- which continued fraction is identical with the series of convergent fractions 1/5 , 10/51 , &c.
- Whence we find the convergents to √3 to be 5/3 , 26/15 , 265/153 , 1351/780 , &c.; in short, we have the very series from which Archimedes may have drawn his examples, without omissions.
- But he would very soon find that 32 was nearly the double of 22 ; searching for another such case, he would find that 72 was nearly the double of 52; and by the time he had found a third instance he would be on the brink of the rule which connects them all, and defines the series.
- We have now seen that in the convergent series leading to √3, the 'One' is no longer the unique and indispensable 'equalizer'; and we shall soon see that it is by no means indispensable (though at first it seemed so) in the series of side and diagonal numbers which leads to √2.
- This is the famous series, sometimes called the Fibonacci series, supposed to have been 'discovered' or first recorded by Leonardo of Pisa, nicknamed the Son of the Buffalo, or 'Fi Bonacci'.
- It is the simplest of all additive series, for each number is merely the sum of its two predecessors.
- It has no longer anything to do with sides or diagonals, and indeed we need no longer write it in columns, but in a single series,
.
- Here is another of the many curious properties of the series:
.
- Euclid himself is giving us a sort of algebraic geometry, or rather perhaps a geometrical algebra; and the series we are now speaking of arithmeticizes that geometry and that algebra.
- It is surely much more than a coincidence that this series is closely related to Euclid II.
- Our two series started alike, with 1 and 1 - the [beginning] of all arithmetic.
- Of the two series which thus begin alike and then part company, the one leads to the square-root of 2 or the hypotenuse of an isosceles right-angled triangle, and the other leads to the Divine or Golden Section.
- It is inconceivable that the Greeks should have been familiarly acquainted with the one and yet unacquainted with the other of these two series, so simple, so interesting and so important, so similar in their properties and so closely connected with one another.
- Depend upon it, the series which has its limit in the Golden Mean was just as familiar to them as that other series whose limit is √2.
- The Golden Mean series is a very curious one; and we have put it only in one and that the simplest of its many forms.
- For the fact is, we may begin it as we please, with 1, 1, or 1, 2, or 1, 3, or any two numbers whatsoever, whole or fractional, and in the end it comes always to the same thing! For instance, we may have the series
.
- The side of the decagon, then, or the star-decagon, may be read off at once to any required degree of accuracy from our table of the Sectio Divina or Golden Mean, or in other words from our Fibonacci series.
- All this is a beautifully simple illustration of a principle recognized in modern mathematics, that you may immensely extend the efficiency (so to speak) of the series of natural numbers if only you can add one other number to it.
- carry us a long way; but if we add to this consecutive series either √2, or π, or the number we have now called τ, in each case an immense new field of operations is rendered possible.
- We can neither represent it by a continued fraction nor by a series of side-and-diagonal numbers.
- Hardy Inaugural Lecture
- In particular, the solution of the problem shows quite clearly that, if we are to attack these 'additive' problems by analytic methods, it is in the theory of integral power series
.
- In the latter theory the right weapon is generally not a power series, but what is called a Dirichlet's series, a series of the type
.
- The associated power series
.
- is easily transformed into the series
.
- called Lambert's series.
- The corresponding Dirichlet's series is far more fundamental; it is in fact
.
- so that, in the theory of Dirichlet's series, the terms combine naturally with one another in a 'multiplicative' manner.
- so that the multiplication of two terms of a power series involves an additive operation on their ranks.
- It is thus that the Dirichlet's series rather than the power series proves to be the proper weapon in the theory of primes.
- Here also we are led to a power series, or infinite product, convergent inside the unit circle; but there the resemblance ends.
- It was conjectured by a very brilliant Hungarian mathematician, Mr G Polya, five or six years ago, that any function represented by a power series whose coefficients are integers, and which is convergent inside the unit circle, must behave, in this respect, like one or other of the two generating functions which we have considered.
- The series is convergent when |x| < 1, and, by Cauchy's Theorem, we have
.
- This class of points is indeed an infinite class; but the infinity is, in Cantor's phrase, only an enumerable infinity; and the points can therefore be arranged in a simply infinite series, on the model of the series
.
- There is, therefore, at any rate, the hope that we may be able to isolate the contributions of each of these selected points, and obtain, by adding them together, a series which may give a genuine approximation to our coefficient.
- We find that there is a certain series, which we call the singular series, which is plainly the key to the solution.
- This series is
.
- The genesis of the series is this.
- We associate with the rational point x = e2pπi/q an auxiliary power series
.
- We then add together all these auxiliary functions, and endeavour to approximate to the coefficient of our original series by summing the auxiliary coefficients over all values of p and q.
- There are certain characteristics common to all these series.
- The series for the cubes is easily shown to be positive; but we cannot deduce that r3,7 (n) is positive, and draw consequences as to the representation of numbers by 7 cubes, because in this case we cannot dispose satisfactorily of the error term O(nσ) in the general formula.
- In the two cases relating to fourth powers which I have chosen, the discussion of the series itself is rather more delicate, for there is in each of them one term which can be negative and greater than 1.
- It brings us for the first time into relation with the series on which the solution in the last resort depends, and tells us, approximately but truly, what the number of representations really is.

- Sansone books
- The improvements and additions of Sansone are very pleasing to the harmonious structure of the author; they contribute to making the work a reliable and easy guide for one who wants to know the most beautiful and the highest theories of the modern analysis of the real variable, as well as for a suitable introduction to the subject matter of which Sansone gives a concise and clear representation in the second volume: the theory of the developments in series of orthogonal functions, and especially in the series of Legendre, of Chebyshev- Laguerre, and from Chebyshev-Hermite polynomials.
- Theory of series.
- Differentiation of series.
- Taylor's Series.
- Completion of the theory of series.
- The five chapters deal, respectively, with sets and transfinite numbers; measure of linear sets; measurable functions, functions of bounded variation; integration of measurable functions, integration of series; differentiation of integrals and of functions of bounded variation.
- The topics discussed are, by chapters: (1) Developments in orthogonal functions, introduction to Hilbert space; (2) Fourier series; (3) Series of Legendre polynomials and of spherical harmonics; (4) Laguerre and Hermite series; (5) Approximation and interpolation; (6) Stieltjes integrals (including a discussion of Fourier transforms of distribution functions; this chapter has little connection with the rest of the book).
- This is a translation of the first four chapters of the third edition (1952) of Sansone's second volume of Vitali's 'Moderna teoria delle funzioni di variabile reale', dealing with general theorems, Fourier series, series of Legendre polynomials and spherical harmonics, and series of Laguerre and Hermite functions.
- Power series as holomorphic functions.
- Expansion in Taylor series.
- Dirichlet series, the zeta function of Riemann.
- Summability of power series outside the circle of convergence.
- Asymptotic series.
- The first volume, on holomorphic functions, discusses Cauchy's theorem, singularities and residues, elliptic functions, the Riemann Zeta function, and summability of power series outside the circle of convergence.
- Following Artin the theory of singular points is developed without the use of Laurent series.
- Among the topics discussed are: power series, elementary functions, Cauchy integral theorem, residue theory, Weierstrass factor theorem, Mittag-Leffler theorem, elliptic functions, integral functions of finite order, Dirichlet series, Riemann zeta function, Laplace integral and asymptotic series.

- A series of books called the Library of Mathematics were edited by W Ledermann.
- One of the early texts in the series was Sequences and Series by J A Green.
- Sequences and Series
.
- Its aims are, first, to present the fundamental mathematical ideas which underlie the notion of a convergent series, and secondly to develop, as far as the small space allows, a body of technique and a familiarity with particular examples sufficient to make the reader feel at home with such applications of infinite series as he is likely to meet in his scientific studies.
- In particular the idea of convergence itself is directly involved in the practical problem of numerical calculation of the sum of a series, and I have devoted some space to this topic, traditionally neglected in elementary books on series.
- Groups St Andrews proceedings
- The two volumes of the Proceedings of Groups - St Andrews 1989 are similar in style to 'Groups - St Andrews 1981' and 'Proceedings of Groups - St Andrews 1985' both published by Cambridge University Press in the London Mathematical Society Lecture Notes Series.
- As mentioned above there was a series of lectures on CAYLEY and a CAYLEY workshop; there was also a lecture on GAP.
- They invited T Hurley, S Tobin and J Ward to join them and continue the series in 1993 in Galway.
- Also, as it transpired, one speaker was awarded a Fields Medal exactly one year later at the 1994 ICM in Zurich; the organisers have great pleasure in congratulating Professor Zelmanov most heartily - and hope perhaps that this may augur well for future speakers in the series!
.
- This was the fifth meeting of the four-yearly Groups St Andrews Conferences, and the series continues to flourish.
- The shape of the conference was similar to the previous conferences in that the first week was dominated by five series of talks, each surveying an area of rapid contemporary development in group theory.
- As the largest regular meeting on group theory in the world, this series has provided a continuing stimulus to research in group theory.
- Groups St Andrews 2001 in Oxford was another highly successful conference in the continuing series.
- The main speakers, who were invited to give a series of talks, were Marston D E Conder (Auckland), Persi Diaconis (Stanford), Peter P Palfy (Eotvos Lorand, Budapest), Marcus du Sautoy (Cambridge), and Michael R Vaughan-Lee (Oxford).
- It is a measure of the success of this conference series and this subject that mathematical libraries around the world are collecting the series of St Andrews Conference Proceedings.
- It is hoped that the next conference in this series will be held in 2005 and will be Groups St Andrews in St Andrews (revisiting the scene of the original crime), and it is also hoped that in 2009 we will return once more to Bath.
- He attended the first Groups St Andrews conference in 1981 and some later ones in the series.
- It is hoped that the next conference in this series will be held in 2009 and will be Groups St Andrews in Bath.
- This was the eighth in the series of Groups St Andrews group theory conferences organised by Colin Campbell and Edmund Robertson of the University of St Andrews.
- The shape of the conference was similar to the previous conferences (with the exception of Groups St Andrews 1981 and 2005) in that the first week was dominated by five series of talks, each surveying an area of rapid contemporary development in group theory and related areas.
- The next conference in this series will be held in St Andrews in 2013.
- This was the ninth in the series of Groups St Andrews group theory conferences organised by Colin Campbell and Edmund Robertson of the University of St Andrews.
- This was the tenth in the series of Groups St Andrews group theory conferences.

- Broadbent's papers
- An Early Method for Summation of Series.
- The method given by Euler for the transformation of series was used by him to obtain "sums" for various divergent series, and recently Konrad Knopp [Math.
- In Tract 8, "The Valuation of Infinite Series," written in 1780, Hutton gives an account of his method, claiming to have arrived at it independently of Euler's work, and employing it to approximate to the sums of series whose terms alternate in sign.
- When the proposed series converges, we have an easy and rapid way of determining its sum, and in the case of a divergent series, a number is determined which would nowadays be recognized as a conventional sum.
- 18, "On Interpolation and Summation"] refers to the "remarkable method" of Hutton, but he applies it only to convergent series, and makes no reference to its application to oscillating series.
- This is noteworthy in view of the remarks made by De Morgan at the end of his Chapter 19 on "The Transformation of Divergent Developments," but it might be conjectured that even so acute a logician as De Morgan had not clearly perceived, at any rate at the time of writing his "Calculus," that the word "sum" applied to any infinite series is being used in a conventional sense.
- In Tract 7 on "The Nature and Value of Infinite Series," he defines a convergent series as one in which the absolute magnitudes of the terms form a decreasing sequence and a divergent series as one in which they form an increasing sequence; a series of the type
.
- The theory given by Hutton turns on a fallacy connected with the use of this series.
- Gyula König Prize
- I note that Szego's theorem, which he obtained in a roundabout way via the study of Toeplitz forms and the Fourier series of positive functions, can very easily be derived from a famous formula of Johan Jensen.
- Another, extensive group of Szego's work belongs to the following sphere of ideas: from properties of the coefficients of power series, or from arithmetic properties of most of these coefficients, he deduces properties of the corresponding analytic functions.
- More specifically: (i) theorems of Jacques Hadamard and Charles Fabry about lacunary power series; (ii) the theorem conjectured by Polya and proved by Fritz Carlson about power series with integer coefficients that are convergent inside the unit disk, which states that the function defined by such a power series either is rational or else cannot be extended beyond the unit disk; and (iii) the analogous theorem of Szego about power series having only finitely many different coefficients ("Uber Potenzreihen mit endlich vielen verschiedenen Koeffizienten," Sitzungsber.
- In the same article, starting from the same principle, Szego also deduces a theorem of Alexander Markowich Ostrowski which leads us to a seemingly distant theorem of Robert Jentzsch (1890-1918), a young German mathematician who died in the war, about the distribution of zeros of the partial sums of power series.
- Finally, I turn to the area belonging both to complex and real analysis to which Szego devoted the largest part of his work: the theory of orthogonal systems and the corresponding series expansions.
- This contains, as a special case, both Legendre and power series.
- These expansions, even in the general case, behave very much like power series, and provide a new and most natural solution to the following problem of Georg Faber: given a domain, find a system of polynomials in which every function that is holomorphic in this domain has an expansion.
- In these two papers he examines the so-called "inner" asymptotics for orthogonal systems and the corresponding series expansions.
- It is known, especially after Alfred Haar's dissertation, that with the help of these asymptotic expressions one can reduce questions of convergence and summability of series expansions to certain special cases, e.g., Fourier series.
- Zeitschrift, Szego also shows that the same elementary method, without the use of asymptotic expressions of the polynomials, directly gives asymptotics for the partial sums [of orthogonal series] and in this way reduces convergence problems to analogous questions for Fourier series.
- Mathematicians and Music 3
- In the eighteenth century when calculus had become a tool, there was a notable series of theoretical discussions of vibrating strings.
- First in the series of theoretical discussions to which I have referred are those of Brook Taylor, who, according to his biographer, "possessed considerable ability as a musician and an artist." His discussions appeared in the Philosophical Transactions for 1713 and 1715 and in his book Methodus Incrementa Directa et Inversa, the first treatise dealing with finite differences, and the one which contains the celebrated theorem regarding expansions, now connected with Taylor's name.
- He started with Taylor's particular solution and found, in effect, that the function for determining the position of the string after starting from rest could naturally be expressed in a form later called a Fourier series.
- Thus were such series first introduced into mathematical physics.
- In this way mathematicians were led to consideration of the famous problem of expanding an arbitrary function as a trigonometric series.
- One of Euler's most notable papers connected with the history of Fourier's series did not appear in print till 1793, ten years after his death.
- In such works, in the comparatively recent notable paper in this country by Harvey Davis, on vibrations of a rubbed string, and, of course, in other mathematical treatments of similar material, Fourier series must enter in a fundamental manner.
- With specified conditions the series and its coefficients for a given tone or combination of tones may be determined.
- Or, if we have a graph of the vibrations corresponding to such tones, the series may also be calculated, various terms in the series corresponding to simple elements compounded in the tone or tones.
- In England, from 1905 to 1912, E H Barton and his associates published a series of papers illustrated by photographs of vibration curves particularly as issuing from the violin strings, bridge, and belly.
- For the mathematician a great advantage of a photograph is that he can, after much labour, from it calculate the corresponding Fourier series.
- By means of a Henrici machine, when the stylus of the instrument is moved along the curve of the photograph the numerical values of the coefficients in the corresponding Fourier series may be read off.
- That is, a tone made up of 30 simple tones can be analyzed and the coefficients of the corresponding number of terms in the Fourier series written down.

- Smith's Teaching Books
- This book is the second of the Wentworth-Smith series.
- This is the third of the Wentworth-Smith Series.
- This text is a revised version of the old and widely known book of similar content of the "Wentworth series." With a few exceptions it consists of a partial rearrangement of a portion of the material of the older book, and users of the older book will have no difficulty in recognizing the text and many of the problems of the newer book.
- This book differs from its predecessors in the series principally in the order of topics.
- The wonder of the series really is the combination of authorship.
- The basis of the series is the historic Wentworth series, than which no series has had a greater sale in the last quarter of a century.
- There is something quite stimulating in seeing a series of arithmetics that is the latest evolution of a series that has been largely in use for many years.
- mathematical induction, permutations, probability, determinants, theory of equations - followed by "Optional Special Topics" - partial fractions, interest and annuities, infinite series, and so on.
- The exception is the treatment of infinite series.
- It would not be easy to get together three men who would mean more in the mathematical world than do these authors of "Exercises and Tests in Algebra," and no one has prepared a more wholesome series of tests or measurements.
- This compact collection of charming essays by Professor Smith is the first volume of a series announced by 'Scripta Mathematica' "designed to furnish, at a nominal price, material which will interest not only teachers of mathematics but all who recall their contact with the subject in their school or college days." ..
- Gibson History 5 - James Gregory
- The two sequences (S) are called a "converging series," the corresponding pairs un , vn are called "converging terms," and the common limit is called "the termination of the series." It is from this beginning that the term "convergence" comes into use in connection with series.
- The important point is that he seeks to prove that t, the termination of the converging series, can not be an algebraic function of any pair of the terms un , vn .
- In a series of propositions he discusses the mensuration of the surface of paraboloids and hyperboloids of revolution and of spheroids and rectifies parabolic arcs.
- Gregory's name is usually attached to a series for tan-1 x and except in this connection and in relation to the phrase "convergent series" it is rarely mentioned.
- But the source from which the series issued sent forth many more theorems of great importance which seem to have been unnoticed.
- (iii) general series for the sines and cosines of multiple angles, with a large variety of series for the mensuration of the circle.
- Later, after seeing one of Newton's series, he developed many series and for the inspiration, though not for the methods, he was in these cases indebted, I think, to the simple statement (without explanations of any kind) of the Newtonian series.

- Science, New Series 172 (3987) (1971), 1017.
- Topics treated include definitions (for functions of a real variable) of limit, continuity, and the convergence of infinite series.
- All the ingredients of a typical undergraduate course in Real Analysis are here: continuity, differentiability, limits, the convergence and uniform convergence of infinite series, integrability, Fourier series, etc.
- In this book we see more clearly than before how Fourier came to his famous series.
- From this first treatise Fourier developed all his subsequent writings on the theory of heat and on trigonometric series.
- Submitted in December 1807 to the First Class of the French Institute (the revolutionary successor of the Academie des Sciences), it contained much that was original, both in its physics and in the range of novel mathematical techniques (including "Fourier series" and "Bessel functions") that it dis played.

- The bulk of Grattan-Guinness's book is a series of extracts from this correspondence, in chronological order, linked by his own commentary.
- And he exhibits that interest in a series of remarks explicitly directed to the textbook tradition
.
- Naturally, as he has done in other publications, Grattan-Guinness describes the unification of the relatively disjointed eighteenth-century differential and integral calculus techniques as limit theory and the algebra of inequalities gradually brought an understanding of the convergence and divergence of infinite series.
- Landau and Lifshitz reviews
- Science, New Series 128 (3327) (1958), 767-768.
- This volume is the second to appear in a projected series of nine volumes on theoretical physics by these authors.
- 'Quantum mechanics' is the third volume of a series on theoretical physics by Landau and Lifshitz.
- Landau and Lifshitz's multivolume series of texts on theoretical physics is justly acclaimed, especially for the unique, physically incisive presentation of the material.
- The series of texts on theoretical physics by the authors has been announced for publication in English translation in 9 volumes.
- This remarkable textbook is the latest translation of a nine-volume series on theoretical physics by one of the world's foremost and versatile physicists, Lev Landau, and his collaborator, E M Lifshitz.
- Except for Volume 9, Physical Kinetics, all volumes of this series are now available in English, and their existence should exert considerable influence on the content of graduate courses in theoretical physics in English speaking countries because of their in comparable excellence, incredibly broad scope and up-to-date nature..
- As in all previous volumes of this series, numerous interesting and important problems are worked out most ingeniously, albeit rather briefly, making these books so valuable.
- This is the ninth volume of the famous series entitled 'A course of theoretical physics'.
- Volume V of this series is regarded as part I of a course in statistical mechanics, and Volume IX (under review here) as part II.
- This final volume in the celebrated Landau and Lifshitz series lives up to the standards of its predecessors.
- This is the closing volume of a series of ten volumes, which actually represent a general course of theoretical physics as was planned by L.

- De Montmort: 'Essai d'Analyse
- Possibly Montmort had a contact with a pupil of Jacob - it is thought he did not meet Nicolaus Bernoulli until 1709 - and this contact inspired him to pursue the new calculus with its fascinating sidelines of the summation of infinite series and the manipulation of binomial coefficients.
- The preceding solution furnishes a singular use of the figurate numbers (of which I shall speak later), for I find in examining the formula, that Pierre's chance is expressible by an infinite series of terms which have alternate + and - signs, and such that the numerator is the series of numbers which are found in the Table (i.e.
- the Arithmetic Triangle) in the perpendicular column which corresponds to p, beginning with p, and the denominator the series of products p × p - 1 × p - 2 × p - 3 × p - 4 × p - 5; so that, cancelling out the common terms, we have for Pierre's chance the very simple
.
- whence by the method of inversion of series
.
- He gives a more general way of getting this series which he says he has obtained from a paper of Leibniz (Leipzig, 1693) in which is the problem Un logarithme etant donnee, trouver le nombre qui lui correspond.
- One could make several interesting remarks about these series but that would take us outside the present subject and would lead us too far away.
- It is clear that the Bernoullis helped considerably with this second edition, clarifying Montmort's ideas for him and contributing much in the way of summation of series.
- Jacob was very good at summing series, so that this type of mathematical exercise was easy for Nicolaus and Johann.
- This formula, the differences of zero series, had been reached by de Moivre in De Mensura Sortis in 1711.
- The generalisations of the various topics discussed in the first edition are interesting, without adding anything particularly new to the probability calculus, although the various methods for the summation of series show the skill of the Bernoullis in that part of algebra.
- Montmort obviously published the long series of letters because he wanted Nicolaus to have the credit of the results he had worked out.
- Charles Bossut on Leibniz and Newton
- In the piece entitled De Analysi per Aequationes Numero Terminorum infinitas besides the method for resolving equations by approximation, which has nothing to do with us here, Newton teaches how to square curves, the ordinates of which are expressed by monomials or sums of monomials; and when the ordinates contain complex radicals, he reduces the question to the former case by evolving the ordinate into an infinite series of simple terms by means of the binomial theorem, which no one had done before.
- While they agree that the evolution of radicals into series is a considerable step made by Newton, they immediately perceive, without the assistance of any subsequent and conjectural light, that the methods of Fermat, Wallis, and Barrow, might have been employed to find the results concerning quadratures which Newton contents himself with enunciating; since, after the evolution of radicals, if there be any, nothing more is necessary but to sum up the monomial quantities.
- In one of his letters to Oldenburg, written even while he was in London, Leibniz says that having discovered a method of summing up certain series by means of their differences, this method was shown to him already published in a book by Mouton, canon of St Paul's at Lyon, On the Diameters of the Sun and Moon: that he then invented another method, which he explains, of forming the differences and thence deducing the sums of the series: that he is capable of summing up a series of fractions of which the numerators are unity and the denominators either the terms of the series of natural numbers, those of the series of triangular numbers, or those of the series of pyramidal numbers, etc.
- He soon found the approximate quadrature of the circle by a series analogous to that which Mercator had given for the approximate quadrature of the hyperbola.
- This series he communicated to Huygens by whom it was highly applauded; and to Oldenburg, who answered him that Newton had already invented similar things not only for the circle but for other curves of which he sent him sketches.
- In fact the theory of series was already far advanced in England at that time; and though Leibniz had likewise penetrated deeply into it, he always acknowledged that the English, and Newton in particular, had preceded and surpassed him in that branch of analysis: but this is not the differential calculus, and the English have shown too evident a partiality in their endeavours to connect these two objects together,
.
- He relates that, on combining his old remarks on the differences of numbers with his recent meditations on geometry, he hit upon this calculus about the year 1676; that he made astonishing applications of it to geometry; that being obliged to return to Hanover about the same time he could not entirely follow the thread of his meditations; that endeavouring nevertheless to bring forward his new discovery, he went by the way of England and Holland; that he stayed some days in London where he became acquainted with Collins who showed him several letters from Gregory, Newton, and other mathematicians, which turned chiefly on series.

- Lectures on the theory of the analytic continuation of Dirichlet series (Spanish) (1943), by Sixto Rios Garcia.
- This publication gives an account of some of the properties of Dirichlet series in the complex domain and their extension to Laplace-Stieltjes integrals.
- Among the author's own contributions are studies on overconvergence, the determination of singularities, and, in the case of Dirichlet series, the question of analytic continuation by reordering.
- This appears to be a revision of the author's lectures [Lectures on the theory of the analytic continuation of Dirichlet series (Spanish)].
- In these lectures (written in collaboration with L Vigil) the author covers a wide variety of topics in the representation of analytic functions of a complex variable: Runge's theorems; analytic continuation by overconvergence and by rearrangement (he constructs, among other examples, a "universal" series of polynomials which can be rearranged to converge uniformly to any prescribed analytic function in any desired region); Mittag-Leffler, Borel and Painleve expansions; analytic continuation by summation of series; representation of functions by Laplace integrals and by Dirichlet, factorial, interpolation and Lambert series.

- If in two series of magnitudes those of the first series are, in order, proportional to those of the second series and further] the magnitudes [of the first series], either all or some of them, are in any ratio whatever [to those of a third series], and if the magnitudes of the second series are in the same ratio to the corresponding magnitudes [of a fourth series], then the sum of the magnitudes of the first series has to the sum of the selected magnitudes of the third series the same ratio which the sum of the magnitudes of the second series has to the sum of the (correspondingly) selected magnitudes of the fourth series.
- André Weil: 'Algebraic Geometry
- My very cordial thanks go also to all those who read portions of the manuscript of this book, in preliminary or in final form, to whom many improvements are due, and to the Colloquium Committee and the staff of the American Mathematical Society, for doing me the honour of publishing this volume In their well-known series, and for the unfailing kindness and courtesy shown to me in all the arrangements connected- with this publication.
- Thus for a time the indiscriminate use of divergent series threatened the whole of analysis; and who can say whether Abel and Cauchy acted more as "creative" or as "critical" mathematicians when they hurried to the rescue? One would be lacking in a sense of proportion, should one compare the present situation in algebraic geometry to that which these great men had to face; but there is no doubt that, in this field, the work of consolidation has so long been overdue that the delay is now seriously hampering progress in this and other branches of mathematics.
- foundations of algebraic geometry may claim to be exhaustive unless it includes (among other topics) the definition and elementary properties of differential forms of the first and second kind, the so-called "principle of degeneration", and the method of formal power-series; but, concerning these subjects, nothing more than some cursory remarks in Chap.
- How much the present book contributes to this, our readers, and future algebraic geometers, must judge; at any rate, as has been hinted above, and as will be shown in detail in a forthcoming series of papers, its language and its results have already been applied to the re-statement and extension of the theory of correspondences on algebraic curves, and of the geometry on Abelian varieties, and have successfully stood that test.
- for instance, one will find here all that is needed for the proof of Bertini's theorems, for a detailed ideal-theoretic study (by geometric means) of the quotient-ring of a simple point, for the elementary part of the theory of linear series, and for a rigorous definition of the various concepts of equivalence.
- As for my debt to my immediate predecessors, it will be obvious to any moderately well informed reader that I have greatly profited from van der Waerden's well-known series of papers [published in the Math.
- formal power-series, and the representation of an ideal in a Noetherian ring as intersection of primary ideals) are used; the reader who is willing to take that theorem for granted, or successful in constructing a simpler proof of it, will not require, in all the rest of the book, any knowledge of these methods, or of anything beyond what has been mentioned above.
- IX, it is possible to prove the same theorem, by means of Zariski's results on birational correspondences, without making any use of formal power-series; on the other hand, Chevalley, by giving [Trans.
- 1-85], for some of the main results in the theory of intersections, alternative proofs which begin by establishing the corresponding theorems for algebroid varieties, has shown how the ring of formal power-series can be given the principal role, instead of the subordinate one which it plays in our treatment.
- The contents of this chapter include all that is needed for the theory of the linear equivalence of divisors (and, in particular, of "virtual curves", i.e., in our language, of cycles of dimension 1, on surfaces), and consequently for the foundation of the theory of linear series on a variety.

- Now a depth of critical understanding which scarcely went beyond the fundamental cases of Fourier and Legendre series has come to prevail with unifying authority over a wider range of generalization than had been even tentatively surveyed, and the diverse fields into which the applications extend derive clarification from a common body of coordinated knowledge.
- However, these omissions are compensated by several interesting features: (a) an elaborate treatment of the asymptotic behaviour of orthogonal polynomials, by various methods, with applications, in particular, to the "classical" polynomials of Legendre, Jacobi, Laguerre and Hermite; (b) a detailed study of expansions in series of orthogonal polynomials, regarding convergence and summability; (c) a detailed study of orthogonal polynomials in the complex domain; (d) a study of the zeros of orthogonal polynomials, particularly of the classical ones, based upon an extension of Sturm's theorem for differential equations.

- The theory of Toeplitz forms has its roots in the work of Toeplitz, Fejer, Caratheodory, F Riesz on trigonometric series and harmonic functions.
- Since their first publication in 1925 these books have served more than one generation of mathematicians as an introduction to important parts of Classical Analysis and number theory: the theory of infinite series; integral calculus, in particular inequalities and asymptotic expansions; functions of a complex variable, for instance geometric function theory and maximal principles; zeroes; polynomials; Determinants and Quadratic forms; number theory; and a little geometry.
- The virtue of the book is that each section, after a brief introduction to the subject, consists of a series of problems so arranged as to make them of reasonable difficulty, as a whole, and an excellent means of thinking one's way into the subject, together with a very good crib for the occasions when the problems are too hard.

- The Dundee Numerical Analysis Conferences
- The series of numerical analysis conferences held every two years in Dundee is part of the UK numerical analysis scene, if not of a wider picture.
- John Morris had by now become the main organiser, and, following a lot of hard work negotiating with publishers, the Proceedings were published for the first time under his Editorship, by Springer Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Mathematics Series (Volume 109).
- This was organised by John Morris, who edited the Proceedings which were published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Mathematics series.
- I said in the Preface: "This was the 5th in a series of biennial conferences in numerical analysis, originating in St Andrews University, and held in Dundee since 1969".
- So maybe this was the first explicit acknowledgement of the numbering system, and I assume I was interpreting the March, 1971, Conference as being the 4th in the series.
- So the series was now well into its stride, and with a fairly well established pattern.
- Following a change of policy by the Springer Editors, we moved to the Pitman Research Notes in Mathematics Series, published at that time by Longman.
- The arrangement to publish the Proceedings in the Pitman series continued in a satisfactory way until 1999, although by this time the series had evolved into a Chapman and Hall/CRC series of Research Notes, published by CRC Press.

- Franklin's textbooks
- deal with complex numbers, average values, and Fourier series.
- Towards the end of the book [two chapters] deal with the theory of analytic functions both of real and complex variables, of their expansions in series, and of operations with these series, also with the theory of the convergence of Fourier series.
- It is designed to show them how to operate with complex quantities and how to solve problems for their solution on the use of Fourier series and integrals, and Laplace transforms.
- The author makes no attempt to lean on the mathematical rigour, but nevertheless the analysis is done in orderly fashion; the arguments are clear and plausible, and important facts, such as those concerning the convergence of Fourier series are plainly stated without claiming to be proved.
- Apparently, this book was very carefully composed and its structure is such that the beginner can attain a solid knowledge of the subject by through a series of stages (81 articles in all) of fairly uniform and moderate difficulty.
- The choice of title is accurate: the print is large and uncrowded on pages of medium size, the tersely phrased text is divided into sections of about one page, the total number of pages is small for the ground covered, which is differential and integral calculus of one variable, infinite series, and partial derivatives and multiple integrals ..
- True, there is plenty of information here about Fourier series, Green's theorem, contour integration, the gamma function, and the rest; but these topics are set firmly in a more fundamental context, and much of the detail is relegated to the very full exercises at the ends of the chapters.
- Sikorski books
- The third part of the book deals with applications of the theory of Lebesgue integration to orthogonal series, and to Fourier series and the Fourier integral.
- The treatment of all this material is outstanding by its great clarity and in showing how the deeper results of set theory and the abstract theory of measure find applications in functional analysis in general, and the theory of orthogonal series.
- The second volume of Sikorski's Real functions deals with function spaces, orthogonal series with special treatment of Fourier series and Fourier integrals.
- There are four chapters: Function spaces; Hilbert space; Fourier series; Fourier integrals.
- The appearance of this book in the well-known series "Ergebnisse der Mathematik" is timely.
- But the coherent and smooth presentation of the whole body of material is, of course, more effective than a series of research papers.
- Samuel Wilks' books
- In the contents of this book economists thus possess both a general theoretical framework and instructive examples, which will be of invaluable assistance when they set out to develop the statistical theory specifically adapted to the estimation problems concerning economic time series and the relations between them.
- Wilks's book, in fact, is based on a series of lectures delivered at Princeton to graduate and advanced undergraduate students of mathematics.
- Econometrica, New series 14 (55) (1947), 239-241.
- The books of the other category, some of them excellent [Borel Series, Cramer, Kolmogorov, Uspensky], deal with mathematical theory of probability with only occasional glimpses on some particular questions pertaining to statistical theory.

- Library of Mathematics
- A series of books called the Library of Mathematics were edited by Walter Ledermann.
- The title and editor of the series appear as:
.
- Ledermann describes the series as follows:
.
- This series of short text-books is primarily intended for readers who study mathematics as a tool rather than for its own sake.
- 'These are all useful little books, and topics suitable for similar treatment are doubtless under consideration by the editor of the series.'
.
- Titles in the series are displayed on an early volume as follows:
.
- Sequences and Series J A Green
.
- Boas books
- Science, New Series 121 (3142) (1955), 390.
- The objects of this monograph are to explain a general method, the method of kernel expansion, of expanding analytic functions in series ..
- This little book differs from most items in the Ergebnisse series in that, rather than being a survey of a field, it is a semi-expository presentation of the authors' approach to a topic.
- One thing that these questions show is that we are still short of a number of special series which will provide counterexamples.
- As Boas observes early on, "complex analysis was originally developed for the sake of its applications." In addition to the usual applications to irrotational flows of incompressible, nonviscous fluids, there are discussions of the Plemelj formulas, Nyquist diagrams, and asymptotic series.
- In addition to the standard topics based on the integral formulas and power series, there is an attractive collection of short discussions of additional topics including intuitive Riemann surfaces, non-Euclidean geometry, and Fourier series.
- The book proper presents enough of a mix to delight readers of many stripes: reprints of a good number of Boas' expository mathematical papers (on Lion Hunting, Infinite Series, The Mean-Value Theorem and Indeterminate Forms, Complex Variables, Inverse Functions, Polynomials, The Teaching of Mathematics); several sections titled Recollections and Verse; Reminiscences by several close friends, students, and son Harold (also a mathematician); Reviews and other miscellany.

- Twenty-Five Years of Groups St Andrews Conferences
- We realised that Groups 2005 would be the last of the series that we would organise before retiring so we made the decision to bring the conference 'home'.
- Although attempting wide coverage of group theory topics, we made a conscious decision for the early conferences not to have a lecture series devoted to the classification.
- At Groups St Andrews 2001 the lecture series were: Group actions on graphs, maps and surfaces with maximum symmetry; An introduction to random walks on finite groups - character theory and geometry; Groups and Lattices; Zeta functions of groups and counting p-groups; and Lie methods in group theory, and at Groups St Andrews 2005: Aspects of infinite permutation groups; On self-similarity and branching in group theory; Interactions between group theory and semigroup theory; and Graphs, automorphisms, and product action.
- The influence of the series of conferences is, we believe, illustrated by the fact that 'Groups St Andrews' is mentioned in 285 reviews in MathSciNet and over 1500 papers in a beta version of the Google Scholar search.
- The Proceedings of each of the first six conferences have been published by CUP as numbers 71, 121, 159 & 160, 211 & 212, 260 & 261, 304 & 305 in the London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series.
- The Proceedings of Groups St Andrews 2005 will again be published in two volumes in the same series.
- We have enjoyed the twenty-five years of Groups St Andrews conferences and look forward to the continuation of the series.
- ELOGIUM OF EULER
- At every turn in Euler's life, series analysis always occupied a special place.
- His novel research into the series of indefinite products provided the necessary resources into solutions to a great many useful and curious questions.
- It was above all by imagining the new series forms and by employing them not only to approximations, to which we are so often forced to take, but also into the discovery of absolute and rigorous proofs that M.
- Taylor was made into an important branch of integral calculus by assigning a simple and workable notation which was found to apply successfully to the theory of series.
- These rays are either the greatest or smallest of all those that belong to the series of curves formed in this way and that finally they always find themselves in planes perpendicular to one another.
- At other times simple numbers, or a new series presented questions novel by their uniqueness which took him to unexpected proofs.
- Once there were two of his students who had calculated a convergent series to the 17th term which was certainly complicated and needed to be written on paper but when the results were compared a discrepancy appeared by one number when the students asked the Master who was correct, Euler did the entire calculation in his head and his answer proved to be correct.
- Rydberg's application
- Thus we find amongst his published works, besides a couple of essays on pure mathematics, several containing theoretical speculations on chemical atomic weight and further a whole series of investigations concerning the constitution of the spectra of the chemical elements.
- The researches last mentioned, which perhaps ought to be considered the author's most important works, have their centre in his great memoir: "Recherches sur la constitution des spectres d'emission des elements chimiques." In this memoir, on the composition of which a considerable amount of work has been evidently expended, the author, similarly to what has been done by Kayser and Runge nearly at the same time, points out the possibility of arranging the lines of a spectrum in certain regular series, which, although at present without a theoretical foundation, will possibly be of importance for the search of the theory yet unknown of these extremely complicated phenomena.
- To this belong the memoirs: "Uber den Bau der Linienspectren der chemischen Grundstoffe," "Recherches sur la constitution des spectres d'emission des elements chimiques," "Beitrage zur Kentniss der Linienspectren (I-IV)," "Die neuen Grundstoffe des Cleveitgases," "The New Series in the Spectrum of Hydrogen," "On Triplets with constant Differences in the Line Spectrum of Copper," "On the Constitution of the red Spectrum of Argon," and the memoirs handed in in manuscript: "Studien uber die Funktionsform der Spectralserien," and "Einige Liniengruppen mit constanten Schwingungsdifferenzen bei vierwerthigen Grundstoffen." The main problems of these memoirs have been to express the situation of the spectral lines of the elements through empirical formulae.
- For example, I find admirable, that you discovered the second triplet series in the strontium spectrum based on Kayser's and my observations, one that we missed even though we had directed our attention especially to these series.
- Also, regarding the new series in the spectrum of magnesium, which you announced, I have been convinced by later observations that you were completely correct, and Kayser and I were wrong when we disputed this series.
- Petrovic integration
- Since 1925 the Paris Academy of Sciences had been commissioning a series of monographs reviewing current mathematical problems, the series having the title Memorial des sciences mathematiques.
- Petrović was asked to write Integration qualitative des equations differentielles which appeared as No 48 in the series in 1931.
- For this very reason it also facilitates the numerical calculation of the integral, because we already know convergent series which represent the integral in a region of the plane, and the main difficulty which presents itself as the extension of the numerical computation outside of this region, is to find a guide facilitating the passage from one region where the function is represented by a series, to another region where it is expressed by a different series.
- Considerations of this kind have indeed guided Henri Poincare in these profound researches relating to the numerical computation of the integral of differential equations by means of series.
- More Smith History books
- Having made an extensive collection of mathematical manuscripts, early printed works, and early instruments, and having brought together most of the European literature upon the subject and embodied it in a series of lectures for my classes in the history of mathematics, I welcomed the suggestion of Dr Carus that I join with Mr Mikami in the preparation of the present work.
- Science, New Series 40 (1036) (1914), 675-676.
- Science, New Series 58 (1502) (1923), 288-290.
- It is needless to point out the difficulties that beset one who undertakes to write on the subject treated in this work (one of the series entitled Our Debt to Greece and Rome).
- The editors of this series were fortunate in securing as the author of this book David Eugene Smith, whose History of Mathematics is the most complete and the most scientific work of its kind in our language.
- it would seem only honest to state that while the book leaves a little to be desired in the matter of style and details, nevertheless, considering its brevity (necessitated by conforming with companion volumes of the series) it unquestionably represents a welcome addition to the literature of historical and expository mathematics.
- Einar Hille: 'Analytic Function Theory
- The Cauchy integral is a much more pliable and versatile tool than the power series when it comes to doing things in function theory.
- But before the student can really grasp integrals of analytic functions, he should have at his disposal a large number of such functions, and here the power series is invaluable as a source.
- The power series also leads to important connections with real analysis, and it is indispensable for the problem of analytic continuation.
- This is followed by a chapter on power series and one on the elementary transcendental functions.
- Familiarity with abstract mathematical reasoning and some skill in manipulating identities, integrals, and series are the main prerequisites.
- Finally, I wish to thank Ginn and Company for the honour they have shown me by letting my book inaugurate their new series "Introductions to Higher Mathematics" as well as for sympathetic consideration of an author's whims and wishes.

- Max Planck: 'Quantum Theory
- The result of this long series of investigations was the establishment of a general relation between the energy of a resonator of given period and the radiant energy of the corresponding region of the spectrum in the surrounding field when the energy exchange is stationary.
- Nothing can better illustrate the impetuous advance made in experimental methods in the last twenty years than the fact that since then, not one only, but a whole series of methods have been devised for measuring the mass of a single molecule with almost the same accuracy as that of a planet.
- The first advance in this work was made by A Einstein, who proved, on the one hand, that the introduction of the energy quanta, required by the quantum of action, appeared suitable for deriving a simple explanation for a series of remarkable observations of light effects, such as Stokes's rule, emission of electrons, and ionization of gases.
- The first brilliant result was Balmer's series for hydrogen and helium, including the reduction of the universal Rydberg constants to pure numbers, by which the small difference between hydrogen and helium was found to be due to the slower motion of the heavier atomic core.
- This led immediately to the investigation of other series in the optical and Rontgen spectra by means of Ritz's useful combination principle, the fundamental meaning of which was now demonstrated for the first time.
- Proceeding further along the same lines, P Epstein succeeded in giving a complete explanation of the Stark effect of the electrical separation of the spectral lines, and P Debye in giving a simple meaning to the K-series of the Rontgen spectrum, investigated by Manne Siegbahn.
- Cauchy's Calculus
- Reasons for this latter approach, however widely they are accepted, above all in passing from convergent to divergent series and from real to imaginary quantities, can only be considered, it seems to me, as inductions, apt enough sometimes to set forth the truth, but ill founded according to the exactitude which is required in the mathematical sciences.
- Cauchy's definition of convergence and sum of a series:
.
- If, for increasing values of n, the sum Sn approaches a certain limit S, the series will be called convergent and the limit in question will be called the sum of the series.
- Conversely, when these many conditions are satisfied, the convergence of the series is assured.
- He "proved" incorrectly that the limit of a convergent series of continuous functions is continuous.
- Bell books
- Bell rightly disparages Pilate's undeservedly famous query, "What is truth?" The question means for him a series of ad hoc questions of the form, What results will follow from such and such an operation or set of operations? Of course, the question might also mean, What is absolute truth, or the secret of the universe? But this is next to nonsense.
- Science, New Series 87 (2269) (1938), 578-579.
- The reader of Men of Mathematics lays down the book after a first reading with a feeling of profound satisfaction that here is a fascinating set of short stories (it is more than a series of biographies), for frequent perusal in parts or as a whole, a book of reference for historical use, and a means of forming friend- ships with men already more or less well known.
- Mr Bell has long been determined to write a history of mathematics and his recent books may be represented as a series of successive approximations to a genuine history.

- Douglas Jones's books
- This book is an addition to the publishers' series, The Library of Mathematics.
- It deals only with oscillations of systems with one degree of freedom, since more complicated systems are discussed elsewhere in the series.
- In recent years several treatises on Electromagnetism have appeared; the volume under review is a worthy addition to the series.
- These are two volumes of a series, edited by Professor Jones, entitled 'Introductory Mathematics for Scientists and Engineers'.
- The book covers limits, functions, continuity, derivatives, maxima and minima, mean value theorem, sequences, series and (from both aspects) integrals.
- Many personal computers are based on one of the 86 series of Intel microprocessors, namely the 8086, 80286, 80386, and the 80486, in order of increasing power.

- Godement's reviews
- The Artin zeta-functions (or L-series) are easy to define; those of Hecke are not.
- They will be your students for the next two or three years, and your job is to lead them through calculus and into the beginnings of higher analysis - complex variables and Fourier series, for example.
- The content is quite classical: sets and functions, convergence of sequences and series, continuous and differentiable functions, elementary functions.
- The ones on set theory, real numbers, harmonic series, uniform convergence, Cauchy criterion, differentiable functions, logarithmic function, strange identities can be recommended.

- O'Brien Calculus
- The method of Limits is generally allowed to be the best and most natural basis upon which to found the principles of the Differential Calculus; in the following pages this method is exclusively adopted, no use whatever being made of series in the demonstration of fundamental propositions.
- IX contains the theory of Series, based upon one of the preceding Lemmas, without assuming that f (x + h) can be developed in the form
.
- and here I have endeavoured to show what the real nature of a series is, and to prove rigorously the principle of Indeterminate Coefficients.
- XVII contains the general Theory of Contacts and Ultimate Intersections: no use is made of series in explaining the different orders of contact.
- The assumption, that f(x + h) can be expanded in a series of the form A + Bha + Chb + &c.
- seems to me to be a serious defect in the common method of establishing Taylor's Series, and thereupon the principles of the Differential Calculus.
- Gibson History 8 - James Stirling
- Stirling made important contributions to mathematics in two different fields (i) in the theory of Higher Plane Curves, and (ii) in the theory of Series.
- 1-13); (ii) Part I, Summation of Series (pp.
- 15-84); (iii) Part II, Interpolation of Series (pp.
- The developments of the Methodus Differentialis have an intimate relation to Gamma Functions and the Hypergeometric Series, but in the study of Stirling we appreciate the genius that enabled him to handle intractable series without the aids that the later developments put at our disposal.
- It is of course not to be expected that the mathematical student can study at first hand even the majority of the older writers, but I do think that he should make a firsthand acquaintance with some of them; next to Newton I would place Stirling as the man whose work is specially valuable where series are in question.
- Charles Bossut on Leibniz and Newton Part 2
- Some time before his death, Leibniz, wishing to feel the pulse of the English, as he expressed himself, caused the celebrated problem of orthogonal trajectories to be proposed to them, which consists in finding the curve that cuts a series of given curves at a constant angle, or at an angle varying according to a given law.
- Johann Bernoulli, who had already made some attempts in this direction in the Memoirs of the Academy of Sciences for 1702, easily solved all these problems in the Leipzig Transactions for 1719; and from the results he obtained he formed a series of curious theorems, the development and demonstration of which were useful exercises for his son and nephew.
- It does not properly belong to the new geometry, yet it contributed to it's progress by stimulating the spirit of combination in general, and by the extent which the author gave to the theory of series, a happy supplement to the imperfection of the rigorous methods in all branches of mathematics.
- Three years afterwards de Moivre published a little treatise on the same subject entitled Mensura Sortis, chiefly remarkable for containing the elements of the theory of recurrent series and some very ingenious applications of it.
- In this manner he has summed up some very curious series.
- Nicole, however, a very distinguished French geometrician, was able to understand it: he very clearly unfolded the method for resolving finite differences and added several new series of his own invention.

- In 1907 the fame of his Trigonometry was eclipsed by that of his Treatise on the Functions of a Real Variable and the Theory of Fourier's Series.
- Professor Hobson's smaller books are Squaring the Circle (1913) and The Domain of Natural Science (1923; a series of Gifford lectures delivered at Aberdeen).
- Most of these deal with convergence of series or the analytic theory of numbers.
- One has already been mentioned; the others are The Integration of Functions of a Single Variable (1905) and The General Theory of Dirichlet's Series (1915, in collaboration with M Riesz).
- Morton's reports
- He is carrying out research there on Power Series.

- Harnack calculus book
- To describe thoroughly the phenomena of motion is to assign every circumstance in numbers of concrete units: so that if the series of numbers is also to enable us to describe motion, it must contain a continuous series of quantities.
- Thus the first problem of Analysis is: to develop the conception and the properties of the continuous series of numbers.
- The natural series of numbers, which arises by adding on a thing to others in counting, advances always by unity; each number is defined by the preceding number and by unity.
- This series of integers starting from unity can be continued on indefinitely.

- Von Neumann Silliman lectures
- Each lecture course would be published in a series as a memorial to Mrs Silliman.
- Although illness prevented him delivering the lectures, his unfinished manuscript was published as the 36th volume in the published series in May 1958 following von Neumann's death.
- To give the Silliman Lectures, one of the oldest and most outstanding academic lecture series in the United States, is considered a privilege and an honour among scholars all over the world.
- Traditionally the lecturer is asked to give a series of talks, over a period of about two weeks, and then to shape the manuscript of the lectures into a book to be published under the auspices of Yale University, the home and headquarters of the Silliman Lectures.
- I should like to be permitted to express my deep gratitude to the Silliman Lecture Committee, to Yale University, and to the Yale University Press, all of which have been so helpful and kind during the last, sad years of Johnny's life and now honour his memory by admitting his unfinished and fragmentary manuscript to the series of the Silliman Lectures Publications.
- Basset papers
- In the first series of experiments polarized light was reflected from the polished pole of an electromagnet, and it was found that when the circuit was closed, so that the reflecting surface became magnetized perpendicularly to itself, the reflected light exhibited certain peculiarities, which disappeared when the circuit was broken.
- In the second series of experiments the reflector was a polished plate of soft iron laid upon the poles of a horse-shoe electromagnet, so that the direction of magnetization was parallel, or approximately so, to the reflecting surface; and it was found that the effect of the current was analogous to, though by no means identical with, the effect produced in the first series of experiments.
- In both series of experiments it was found that the effects produced by magnetization materially varied with the angle of incidence.
- The first error is that the three stresses R, S, T are accurately zero throughout the substance of the plate or shell; the second error is that it is not permissible to expand the various quantities involved, in a series of ascending powers of the distance of a point from the middle surface.
- Netto books
- Science, New Series 16 (403) (1902), 469-470.
- Under the leadership of C F Hindenburg it represents the culmination of an unfortunate tendency of eighteenth century mathematicians to develop analysis, particularly the subject of infinite series, with reference to form only, and to pay little or no attention to the actual contents of formulae.
- One of the latest additions to the excellent series of monographs published in the Sammlung von Lehrbucher auf dem Gebiete der mathematischen Wissenschaften is from the pen of Professor Netto of the University of Giessen, whose name is familiar in connection with the substitution theory.
- The scope of the treatise includes the theory of composition-series, chief-series, Sylow subgroups, and Abelian groups, but not the theory of commutants or groups of isomorphisms.
- G H Hardy: 'Integration of functions
- The Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics was a series of pamphlets published by Cambridge University Press.
- When the series first began to be published the General Editors were J G Leathem and E T Whittaker.
- The integration of functions of a single variable by G H Hardy was No 2 in the series and published in 1905.
- I have borrowed largely from the Cours d'Analyse of Hermite and Goursat, but my greatest debt is to Liouville, who published in the years 1830-40 a series of remarkable memoirs on the general problem of integration which appear to have fallen into an oblivion which they certainly do not deserve.
- It was Liouville who first gave rigid proofs of whole series of theorems of the most fundamental importance in analysis - that the exponential function is not algebraical, that the logarithmic function cannot be expressed by means of algebraical and exponential functions, and that the standard elliptic, integrals cannot be expressed by algebraical, exponential and logarithmic functions.
- Bradley letter
- This points out to us the great Advantage of cultivating this as well as every other Branch of Natural Knowledge, by a regular Series of Observations and Experiments.
- From that time to the present, I have continued to make Observations at Wansted, as Opportunity offered, with a View of discovering the Laws and Cause of this Phenomenon: For, by the Favour of my very kind and worthy Friend Matthew Wymondefold Esq, my Instrument has remained, where it was first erected; so that I have been able, without any Interruption, which the Removal of it to another Place would have occasioned, to proceed on with my intended Series of Observations, for the Space of twenty Years: a Term somewhat exceeding the whole Period of the Changes, that happen in this Phenomenon.
- For these Reasons, we generally find, that the more exact the Instruments are, that we make use of, and the more regular the Series of Observations is, that we take; the sooner we are enabled to discover the Cause of any new Phenomenon.
- And indeed it was on account of the Objections, which might have been raised against such a Postulate, that I thought it necessary, to continue my Series of Observations for so many Years, before I published the Conclusions, which I shall at present endeavour to draw from them.
- I judged it proper to continue my Observations of the same Stars; hoping that, by a regular and longer Series of them, carried on through several succeeding Years, I might, at length, be enabled to discover the real Cause of such apparent Inconsistencies.
- Herivel's books
- Science, New Series 152 (3724) (1966), 915.
- Science, New Series 189 (4199) (1975), 279.
- In addition, as one of a series of recent biographies of French exact scientists born in the eighteenth century, it enriches our knowledge of a remarkably fruitful period for French mathematics and physics.
- In his introduction Herivel explicitly justifies his decision to forego attempting "that fully integrated biographico-scientific study of which historians of science sometimes dream" and to "make a clean division into two parts, Part I on Fourier the Man, and Part II on Fourier the Physicist." One of his reasons is that Fourier began his major work on heat only around 1804, after an exciting if not terribly significant series of careers as mathematics teacher, minor revolutionary, political prisoner, student of Egyptian culture, and civil administrator under both Napoleon and Louis XVIII.
- When the name Joseph Fourier is mentioned, one is more likely to think of series, of transforms or of equations describing the propagation of heat in solids, than of a young man caught up in the complexities of a revolution, of a companion to Napoleon on an ill-fated excursion to Egypt, or of an excellent administrator serving the Emperor in a rural setting away from Paris.
- St Andrews Mathematics Examinations

- Ball papers
- The following numbers, forming what I will call the series a, are expressible by one "4": 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 24, 265, 720, ..
- From this series it follows that if m and n are two numbers such that n - m is less than 10, then every number between m and n is expressible by m or n and one "4." The numbers 1 to 13, 15 to 18, 20 to 28, 30, 33, 36, forming the series b, are expressible by two "4"s.
- In an unpublished memorandum made some years later (cancelled, but believed to be correct in the part here quoted), he thus described his work of this time: "In the beginning of the year 1665 I found the method of approximating Series and the Rule for reducing any dignity of any Binomial into such a series.
- O'Brien tracts
- In calculating the attractions of the Earth on any particle, he has arrived at the correct results, without considering diverging series as inadmissible; and this he conceives to be important, because there is evidently no good reason why a diverging series should not be as good a symbolical representative of a quantity as a converging series; or why there should be any occasion to enquire whether a series is diverging or converging, as long as we do not want to calculate its arithmetical value or determine its sign.
- Instances, it is true, have been brought forward by Poisson in which the use of diverging series appears to lead to error; but if the reasoning employed in Chapter III of these Tracts be not incorrect, this error is due to quite a different cause; as will be immediately perceived on referring to Articles 33, 34, 35, and 37.
- Pedoe's books
- There are 9 chapters: mathematical games, chance and choice, where does it end (i.e., transfinite numbers), automatic thinking (logic, algebra of classes, etc.), two-way stretch, rules of play (elementary algebra, groups, etc.), an accountant's nightmare (infinite series), double talk (antinomies), what is mathematics.
- Science, New Series 131 (3396) (1960), 295-296.
- The topics treated are mathematical games, chance and choice, infinity, sets and logic, topology, groups-rings-fields, series, and more logic.
- Science, New Series 143 (3612) (1964), 1320.
- George William Hill's new theory of Jupiter and Saturn
- The employment of the eccentric anomaly of the planet whose co-ordinates are sought as the independent variable undoubtedly augments the convergence of the series; but the adoption of this mode of proceeding would bring about the use of two independent variables, one of the co-ordinates of Jupiter, another for those of Saturn.
- As the developments have to be pushed to terms of three dimensions with respect to disturbing forces the heaviest part of the labour consists in forming products of periodic series, one of which belongs to Jupiter, the other to Saturn; and as integration can not be performed unless these products are transformed so as to involve but one variable we should have an endless series of transformations to make.
- In consequence, the final form adopted for all the periodic series is in terms of the mean anomalies, so that the time is always the independent variable.
- Gregory-Collins correspondence
- The include integrating √(1 + 1/x2), the transcendence of the exponential function, various series expansions for sin x and a general form of the binomial theorem.
- Notes which Gregory wrote on the blank spaces of Collins' 29 January 1671 letter shows that he was by this time quite expert in computing the Taylor series of functions.
- This letter contains six examples of functions expanded using Taylor series many years before Brook Taylor was born.
- Gregory assumes that Newton must be familiar with Taylor series.
- Loney reviews
- In Part II the author first deduces the common exponential and logarithmic series, and then treats of complex quantities under their trigonometric form.
- The author treats with marked clearness the exponential series for complex quantities, the trigonometric functions of complex angles, and the hyperbolic functions defined analytically.
- Among the other subjects treated the most important are the value of π, summation of series, expansion in series, factoring of mathematical expressions, proportional parts, errors of observation, solution of cubic equations, and geometric representation of complex quantities.
- Obada publications
- In the problem of propagation and scattering of light in crystals, the third-order correlation function already appears in the lowest order terms of the multiple scattering series.
- A model is presented in the 3-level atom and 2-mode system, in which infinite series tend to closed forms, for thermal and coherent distributions for the modes.

- Johnson pre1900 books
- In Chapter IX, I have attempted to classify the principles employed in finding the equations of Geometrical Loci, and to explain and illustrate them fully by examples solved in the text, and a carefully graduated series of examples for practice.
- The difficulties usually encountered on beginning the study of the Differential Calculus, when the fundamental idea employed is that of infinitesimals or that of limits, together with the objectionable use of infinite series involved in Lagrange's method of derived functions, have induced several writers on this subject to return to the employment of Newton's conception of rates or fluxions.
- The expression "binomial equations" is applied in this work (in a sense introduced by Boole) to those linear equations which are included in the general form f1(ϑ )y + xs f2(ϑ )y = 0, and which constitute the class of equations best adapted to solution by development in series.
- Chapter VIII is devoted to the general solution of the binomial equation in the notation of the hypergeometric series, and Chapter IX to Riccati's, Bessel's and Legendre's equations.
- Eulogy to Euler by Fuss
- It is there that we find remarkably the full measure of the theory of curves: tautochrones, brachistochrone, trajectories and the very deep research in integral calculus, on the nature of numbers, concerning series, the motion of heavenly bodies, the attraction of spheroid-elliptical bodies and on an infinity of subjects of which one hundredth part would suffice in making the reputation of anyone else.
- He gathered together everything that he found to be useful and interesting concerning the properties of infinite series and their summations; He opened a new road in which to treat exponential quantities and he deduced the way in which to furnish a more concise and fulsome way for logarithms and their usage.
- He showed a new algorithm which he found for circular quantities, for which its introduction provided for an entire revolution in the science of calculations, and after having found the utility in the calculus of sine, for which he is truly the author, and the recurrent series, he provides for in the second part the general theory of curves with their divisions and sub-divisions and in a supplement the theory of solids and their surfaces while showing how their measurement leads to the equations with three variables and he ends finally this important work by developing the idea of curves with double curvature which provides for the consideration of the intersection of curved lined surfaces.
- Euler had already envisaged the true principles in the systematic order in which he has exposed them and with the methodology which exists and the clarity with which he has shown the utility of the calculus in relation to the doctrine of series and to the theory of the maxima and the minima.
- R A Fisher: 'Statistical Methods' Introduction
- In 1925 R A Fisher published Statistical Methods for Research Workers in the Biological Monographs and Manuals Series by the publisher Oliver and Boyd of Edinburgh in Scotland.
- With an infinite population the frequency distribution specifies the fractions of the population assigned to the several classes; we may have (i) a finite number of fractions adding up to unity as in the Mendelian frequency distributions, or (ii) an infinite series of finite fractions adding up to unity, or (iii) a mathematical function expressing the fraction of the total in each of the infinitesimal elements in which the range of the variate may be divided.
- Three of the distributions with which we shall be concerned, Bernoulli's binomial distribution, Laplace's normal distribution, and Poisson's series, were developed by writers on probability.
- Examples of sufficient statistics are the arithmetic mean of samples from the normal distribution, or from the Poisson series; it is the fact of providing sufficient statistics for these two important types of distribution which gives to the arithmetic mean its theoretical importance.

- For, although the two parts, respectively by Alain Ghouila-Houri and by Claude Berge, both deal with series of problems which cover much of the mathematical theory of the non-statistical part of operational research and both sets of problems are solved by the construction of algorithms of linear programming type (with proof of convergence), yet their mathematical nature is very different.
- George Gibson: 'Calculus
- With respect to mathematical attainments, the reader is supposed to be familiar with Geometry, as represented by the parts of Euclid's Elements that are usually read., with Algebra up to the Binomial Theorem for positive integral indices, and with Plane Trigonometry as far as the Addition Theorem; but no use is made of Complex (imaginary) number, nor is a knowledge of Infinite Series presupposed.
- As in some of the more recent text-books, the discussion of Taylor's Theorem has been postponed; the Mean Value Theorem is sufficient in the earlier stages, and the somewhat abstract theorems on Convergence and Continuity of Series are most profitably treated towards the end of the course.
- The chapter on the Fourier Series will, I hope, be sufficient as an introduction to the subject; but the student can not be too earnestly recommended to read and to master the fascinating pages in which Fourier himself develops the process of representing an arbitrary function by means of a harmonic series.
- Harvey obituaries
- How can that be assured of happening? The British mathematician, Maclaurin, who discovered mathematical series that are now taught in A-level mathematics, was a professor at the University of Aberdeen in the 1720s.
- The university also teaches mathematical series more intensively than is normally done in most universities - just to raise and keep the tradition of series in the memory of Maclaurin.
- Despite our very different childhoods, I recall a long, enjoyable evening with him in a shebeen [an unlicensed establishment or private house selling alcohol] in rural Zimbabwe talking about the various American and Japanese TV series we had both seen growing up (which I mentionednhere).
- L E Dickson: 'Linear algebras
- The Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics was a series of pamphlets published by Cambridge University Press.
- When the series first began to be published the General Editors were J G Leathem and E T Whittaker.
- However, G H Hardy took over from E T Whittaker and when Linear algebras by L E Dickson, which was No 16 in the series, was published in 1914 the General Editors were G H Hardy and J G Leathem.
- My thanks are due to the editors for the opportunity to participate in this useful series of tracts.

- Augustin Louis Cauchy, who worked mainly on analysis, introducing the criteria for convergence of series and holomorphic functions.
- Joseph Fourier, who is most well known for having calculated the propagation of heat, by decomposing a function into a converging trigonometric series, which is known as a Fourier function, this method being called the Fourier Transform, which is the basis of signaling theory, digital imaging, data compression and systems like 3G and 4G
.
- His mathematical study includes projective geometry, calculus, and series of whole numbers, as well as working on Pascal's triangle, for binomial coefficients, in his book Traite du triangle arithmetique.
- Heath: Everyman's Library 'Euclid' Introduction
- In 1905 the London publisher Joseph Malaby Dent had the idea of producing the Everyman's Library, a cheap series of reprints of classical texts.
- Dent wanted the series:-
.
- (which had to be copied exactly) had to be similar to those of the other volumes in the series.
- Todhunter, Senior Wrangler in 1848, was the author of a series of mathematical textbooks quite unrivalled in their day; and his notes to Euclid, admirably concise and to the point, fully deserve re-impression.
- Zariski and Samuel: 'Commutative Algebra
- The algebro-geometric origin and motivation of the book will become more evident in the second volume (which will deal with valuation theory, polynomial and power series rings, and local algebra; more will be said of that volume in its preface) than they are in this first volume.
- (Other variations of that theorem will be found in Volume II, in the chapter on polynomial and power series rings.) With Matusita we then define a Dedekind domain as an integral domain in which every ideal is a product of prime ideals and derive from that definition the usual characterization of Dedekind domains and their properties.
- These topics are: (a) valuation theory; (b) theory of polynomial and power series rings (including generalizations to graded rings and modules); (c) local algebra.
- The greater part of Chapter VII is devoted to classical properties of polynomial and power series rings (e.g., dimension theory) and their applications to algebraic geometry.
- Smith Major History books
- Science, New Series 32 (812) (1910), 114-115.

- The series of studies dealing with educational variables, reported and summarized in the book edited by Gilah Leder and me [',' E Fennema and G Leder (eds.), Mathematics and gender: Influences on teachers and students (Teachers College Press, New York, 1990).
- In connection with this series of studies, Peterson and I proposed the Autonomous Learning Behaviours model, which suggested that because of societal influences (of which teachers and classrooms were main components) and personal belief systems (lowered confidence, attributional style, belief in usefulness), females do not participate in learning activities that enable them to become independent learners of mathematics [',' P L Peterson and E Fennema, Effective teaching, student engagement in classroom activities, and sex-related differences in learning mathematics, American Educational Research Journal 22 (3) (1985), 309-335.

- H Weyl: 'Theory of groups and quantum mechanics' Introduction
- The deduction of the Balmer series for the line spectrum of hydrogen and of the Rydberg number from universal atomic constants constituted its first convincing confirmation.

- The spectroscopic data, presented in accordance with the new quantum theory, together with complete references to the literature, are given in the following three volumes of the series Struktur der Materie, edited by Born and Franck:-
.
- The spectroscopic aspects of the subject are also discussed in Pauling and Goudsmit's recent The Structure of Line Spectra (1930), which also appears in the International Series in Physics.
- Eddington: 'Mathematical Theory of Relativity' Introduction
- The parallax of a star is found by a well-known series of operations and calculations; the distance across the room is found by operations with a tape-measure.
- The same series of operations will naturally manufacture the same result when world-conditions are the same, and different results when they are different.
- A physical quantity is defined by the series of operations and calculations of which it is the result.
- I should be puzzled to say off-hand what is the series of operations and calculations involved in measuring a length of 10-15 cm; nevertheless I shall refer to such a length when necessary as though it were a quantity of which the definition is obvious.
- Speiser books
- From the title of the series it is clear that the aim is to deal with fundamental theories rather than to present details.
- On the whole, the volume under review furnishes a very attractive introduction into some of the most modern developments of the theory of groups of finite order, with emphasis on its applications, and we can only wish it success along with the other volumes of the interesting series to which it belongs now being published under the general editorship of R Courant of the University of Gottingen.
- The first edition of this famous book, in the "yellow" series of mathematical monographs of the Julius Springer Verlag, is 35 years old.
- Speiser explains the cultural significance of mathematics in a series of 24 pieces from the literature.
- Analysis of Variance
- For each treatment in each locality there is a mixing tank from which the fluid is pumped to all the tanks on this treatment, connected "in parallel:" We do not want a "series" connection, where the outflow from one tank is the inflow to another, because this would confound the effects of the varieties in these two tanks with the effects (if any) of order in the "series" connection.

- Murphy books
- This subject is discussed in a series of propositions, the more clearly to impress the reader with the steps of the reasoning.
- I have then given the theorems of both Sturm and Fourier relative to the discovery of the number of real and imaginary roots of an equation, the combination of which with the methods of approximation due to Newton and Lagrange conducts to the solution of all numerical equations of finite dimensions, except for imaginary roots, for the discovery of which I have employed a method deduced from recurring series.
- The formation of literal equations being understood, I have explained the logarithmic method for obtaining with rapidity the series which analytically represent the different roots and their functions; and have then shown how to effect some general and useful transformations of equations, and explained the algebraical solutions of the equations of inferior degrees, and the analytical meaning of the different surd parts which constitute the roots.
- After giving several useful analytical results springing from the employment of the methods before given, I have passed on to discuss recurring series, which have been used from an early date for the solution of equations.

- Algebra and geometry are to form the subjects of further volumes of this series, so that very little has been said about them here.
- An analyst should be able to handle such things as integrals and infinite series just as well as if they were the simple expressions of elementary algebra.
- Turnbull lectures on Colin Maclaurin, Part 2
- as a special case of the series for f(x + h) given by Brook Taylor in 1715.
- An earlier passage contains the well-known integral test for the convergence or divergence of a monotonic series, where and are compared; a method which Cauchy rediscovered many years later.
- This Maclaurin turned to practical account by developing a technique for computing the series from the integral, or vice versa, to a high order of accuracy, and gave him what is nowadays known as the Euler-Maclaurin summation formula, both mathematicians having discovered the method, as it would seem, independently and nearly contemporaneously.

- This is the beginning of a long series of first ascents in the Alps.
- William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition
- Again the winners were enthusiastic to continue the series and again the losers (this time Harvard) declined the challenge.
- Prove that every positive rational number is the sum of a finite number of distinct terms of the series
.
- The second problem has particular historical interest since the ancient Egyptians knew how to do it! In fact every rational has infinitely many different such decompositions or, thought of another way, one can omit any finite number of terms of the series and a decomposition (even infinitely many) is still possible.

- Mordell reminiscences
- It was really a good book, though not rigorous, and contained a great deal of material including the theory of equations, series, and a chapter on the theory of numbers.
- He was the author of a book on college algebra and also one on operations with series.
- He had just written his book on infinite series of which he was very proud.

- It is in Rabat, at Lalla-Nezha high school, that she will get her baccalaureate (series D) in 1965.
- After a series of dead ends, Noufissa Mikou, who is particularly interested in the applications of mathematics to computer and telecommunications networks, begins a thesis d'Etat which she will complete in 1981.
- We were faced with a series of direct or indirect blockages from the administration and even from colleagues," she says.
- Kingman autobiography
- After proving that I was not good at making the tea, I was given a handbook of common Fourier series which was known to be riddled with errors, and which I was told to revise.
- This had the useful effect of giving me one Tripos question which I could answer at sight, since there was always a function whose Fourier series we had to compute, and I had all the easy examples by heart.
- Finally, I strongly recommend Peter Whittle's lively history of the Cambridge Statistical Laboratory, which can be found on the Laboratory's website together with a fascinating series of group photographs of the members through the years.

- L R Ford - Differential Equations
- The first three chapters lead up to the later chapters by their discussions of direction fields, of solutions in series, of the Wronskian and linear dependence.
- It is unusual to find Clairaut's equation and simple examples of solution in series in the first chapter of a text-book on differential equations, but the idea is a good one.
- Subsequent chapters cover special methods for equations of first order, linear equations of any order with a brief account of the use of the Laplace transform, solution in series of the hypergeometric, Legendre's and Bessel's equations, approximate numerical solutions, and two chapters on partial differential equations.

- Science at St Andrews
- On returning to London in 1668 Gregory learnt from his friend Collins of a new method for expanding a logarithm by an infinite series that had just been published by Mercator.
- How close Gregory and Newton were in mathematical thought may be judged from the fact that on one occasion independent statements of the same discovery - the infinite series for the inverse sine - crossed in the post.
- He was physicist, astronomer, and engineer of eminent powers, and once carried out a long series of experiments, from 1876 to 1880, in Pitlochry and across the Firth of Clyde by means of arc lamps for directly measuring the velocity of light.
- Groups in Galway
- At the inaugural meeting of the Irish Mathematical Society in Dublin in December 1977, I proposed that a series of instructional conferences be organised in various topics in Mathematics.
- The Irish Mathematical Society intends to hold a series of short instructional conferences.
- Thus the series of Groups in Galway was well launched.
- Ahlfors' Complex analysis
- One of the most fundamental properties of analytic functions is that they can be represented through convergent power series.
- Conversely, with trivial exceptions every convergent power series defines an analytic function.
- Power series are very explicit analytic expressions and as such are extremely maniable.
- Mathematicians and Music 2.1
- Reducing d an octave, a an octave, e two octaves, and b two octaves, we have the series
.
- To obtain the f missing in this series and to fill up the wide interval between e and g it appears that c as a fifth below the prime was raised an octave.
- By beginning with different letters in the series thus determined, Euclid got the seven Pythagorean scales covering two octaves instead of one.

- Horace Lamb addresses the British Association in 1904
- It was from him that many of us first learned that a great mathematical theory does not consist of a series of detached propositions carefully labelled and arranged like specimens on the shelves of a museum, but that it forms an organic whole, instinct with life, and with unlimited possibilities of future development.
- So far as British universities are concerned, they have formed the starting point of a whole series of works conceived in a similar spirit, though naturally not always crowned by the same success.
- It is now generally accepted that an analytical solution of a physical question, however elegant it may be made to appear by means of a judicious notation, is not complete so long as the results are given merely in terms of functions defined by infinite series or definite integrals, and cannot be exhibited in a numerical or graphical form.

- The book is too well constructed to permit the mere extraction of odd chapters, but not too much work would be needed to produce paperbacks on, say, 'Series', 'Differential equations' and 'The growth of abstract algebra' which would prove most valuable for use with undergraduate courses.
- George Salmon: from mathematics to theology
- In the next year he produced his third and most controversial and important theological work, The Infallibility of the Church, which was a series of lectures in which he argues against the tradition of Papal Infallibly within the Roman Catholic Church.
- Firstly, I will focus on his most famous theological work, his series of lectures on The Infallibility of the Church, to illustrate how his mathematical brilliance was a factor in his theological works, especially in his analytical approach and process orientated approach to find meaning and truth.
- The argument continues to the conclusion that this creative process must have begun with a non-contingent being, and the inductive step is taken to assume that this is the 'being that which we call God.' Similarly, the ontological argument for the existence of God uses the principle of the necessity of an uncaused cause, The created world is like a chain of caused evolutionary events, and this process rather than being an infinite regression series had a starting point, an uncaused cause, again 'the being that which we call God.'
.
- Mirsky books
- I have also included a brief sketch of the theory of matrix power series, a topic of considerable interest and elegance not normally dealt with in elementary textbooks.

- This monograph is one in a series of scholarly studies on facets of work in the Soviet Union not well known or understood by the professional community or academia in the West.
- David Hilbert: 'Mathematical Problems
- The same is true of the first problems of geometry, the problems bequeathed us by antiquity, such as the duplication of the cube, the squaring of the circle; also the oldest problems in the theory of the solution of numerical equations, in the theory of curves and the differential and integral calculus, in the calculus of variations, the theory of Fourier series and the theory of potential - to say nothing of the further abundance of problems properly belonging to mechanics, astronomy and physics.
- Further, the proof that the power series permits the application of the four elementary arithmetical operations as well as the term by term differentiation and integration, and the recognition of the utility of the power series depending upon this proof contributed materially to the simplification of all analysis, particularly of the theory of elimination and the theory of differential equations, and also of the existence proofs demanded in those theories.
- Sneddon: 'Special functions

- Collins and Gregory discuss Tschirnhaus
- Upon the parting visit I received from him, in answer to the doubt I mentioned about that series, he said it was only fitted to the condition there proposed.
- I am much obliged to you for yours of 20th August, those methods of Mr Tschirnhaus indeed are but very particular, though he asserts that he has general ones, and I told him at parting I should be more fully convinced he had if he but show me his series for finding the three roots of a cubic equation capable of so many that would express the same in cubic surds different from those of Cardan, which indeed (to my understanding) seems to imply that the said roots cannot be always (at least in that method, or any other I know of) be expressed by any manner of surds, to which he replied that his papers were packed up; otherwise he would impart the same, and there being present with him a Dane named George Mohr who lately published in low Dutch, two little books the one named Euclides Danicus where he pretends to perform all Euclid's problems with a pair of compasses only without ruler, and another entitled Euclides Curiosus, wherein with a ruler and a fork (or compasses at a fixed opening) he performs the same, he [Tschirnhaus] said he would speak to the said Mohr to impart the said series, which he promised to do but as yet has not performed.
- Landau and Lifshitz Prefaces
- The present book is one of the series on 'Theoretical Physics', in which we endeavour to give an up-to-date account of various departments of that science.
- the complete series will contain the following nine volumes:
.
- The present volume of the 'Theoretical physics' series is devoted to an exposition of statistical physics and thermodynamics.
- Who was who 1852
- Dirichlet worked in number theory, in particular analytic number theory (Dirichlet's series commemorates this fact), functions of a real variable, Fourier series, potential theory etc.
- The former was his paper on trigonometric series, the latter dealt with the basic hypotheses of geometry.
- Segel Asymptotic analysis
- Another important aspect of the subject is regular perturbation theory, which gives rise to convergent series solutions to problems.
- A convergent power series about a point is asymptotic as the independent variable approaches the point, but we wish to show the importance of "genuine" or non-convergent asymptotic series.
- Fraenkel books
- This is the first of a series of monographs on modern mathematics, based on Fraenkel's talks in the Israel adult education programme; further volumes will deal with modem algebra and transfinite numbers.
- Science, New Series 122 (3165) (1955), 380.
- After a vivid historical introduction describing the paradoxes of set theory there follows an account of the axiomatic foundations of the Zermelo style system which Fraenkel used informally in his introductory volume in the same series, Abstract Set Theory.
- Serre reviews
- Addison-Wesley has just reissued Serre's 1968 treatise on l-adic representations in their Advanced Book Classics series.
- More importantly, it can be viewed as a toolbox which contains clear and concise explanations of fundamental facts about a series of related topics: abstract l-adic representations, Hodge-Tate decompositions, elliptic curves, L-functions, etc.
- This book in the SUP series is based upon two courses of lectures given by the author in 1962 and 1964 at the Ecole Normale Superieure.
- Godement's preface
- As for content, I did not hesitate to introduce, sometimes very early, subjects considered relatively advanced - multiple series and unconditional convergence, analytical functions, the definition and immediate properties of Radon measures and distributions, the integrals of semi-continuous functions, Weierstrass elliptic functions, etc.
- Chapter VII develops, besides the classical theory of Fourier series and integrals, those classical properties of analytic functions or harmonics that can be proved without using the curvilinear Cauchy integral: the simplest results on Fourier series given there are sufficient and I have often taught this less common method; the remainder of the theory will come in Volume III.
- Perron books
- A natural sequence of ideas leads to a discussion of the expressions of numbers as decimals and continued fractions as well as in the less familiar forms of Cantor's series and product and the series of Sylvester, Luroth and Engel.
- The fourth chapter contains not only an excellent introduction to the theory of continued fractions, but also the representation of real numbers by the series of Cantor, Luroth, Engel and Sylvester.
- Kantorovich books
- Science, New Series 134 (3487) (1961), 1358.
- The first chapter deals with expansion in series, both orthogonal and nonorthogonal, with a section on the improvement of convergence.

- This is the third volume in the series "Per la Storia e la Filosofia delle Matematiche" edited by Professor Enriques.
- The authors published their first account in Italian: 'Storia del Pensiero Scientifico', four years prior to the present French series.
- Élie Cartan reviews
- In this sense, this is not a book from which to learn the skill of tensor formalism; just as a book in complex variables, if leaning in a geometric direction, need not be the appropriate source from which to learn the technique of power series manipulation.
- In terms of contemporary Lie group theory, it deals with the B and D series of simple Lie algebras and the Lie groups which go along with them, i.e., the orthogonal matrix groups over the real and complex numbers and their simply connected covering groups.
- An elucidation of the concepts that occur in these commentaries is presented in a series of three appendices by Hermann, entitled "The formalism of connection theory", "Cartan's method of the moving frame as a generalization of Klein's 'Erlanger Programm' ", "Excursions into the theory of Cartan connections".
- Poincaré on non-Euclidean geometry
- From these hypotheses he deduces a series of theorems between which it is impossible to find any contradiction, and he constructs a geometry as impeccable in its logic as Euclidean geometry.
- Let us consider a certain plane, which I shall call the fundamental plane, and let us construct a kind of dictionary by making a double series of terms written in two columns, and corresponding each to each, just as in ordinary dictionaries the words in two languages which have the same signification correspond to one another:-
.
- If the first point is conceded and the second rejected, we are led to a series of theorems even stranger than those of Lobachevsky and Riemann, but equally free from contradiction.
- Rios Honorary Degree
- It can be said that it appears already in the Calculus of Probabilities when the Chevalier de Mere presented to Pascal frequencies of events in the game of dice whose probability was badly calculated by de Mere, but was to be correctly modelled by Pascal, and identified with the frequency in a long series of trials, led him to the first conscious and successful simulation of a random game, in short, to the creation of the Calculus of Probabilities.
- Finally the results from the verified model are compared with those of the real system and if the degree of adjustment is unacceptable a new series of steps must be carried out that modify the first model in view of the new information acquired.
- A series of classifications in which characteristics of the system (experimental, observable, designable), basic sciences (hard, such as Physics, Chemistry, ..
- Coulson: 'Electricity
- The Oliver and Boyd series of mathematical texts were widely used by students throughout the 1940s to 1960s.
- One of the books in the series was Electricity by Charles A Coulson.
- But there is another entirely different way of measuring current; for when charges are flowing we discover a whole series of new phenomena, to which we give the name magnetism.
- Dingle books
- Only one chapter is devoted to the General Theory, and the major part of the book is intended by the author to be an introduction to Professor McCrea's valuable little monograph in the same series, 'Relativity Physics'.
- In this work Professor Dingle has collected a series of his essays on the history and philosophy of science.
- Dingle's feeling of disillusion with the theory, on which he had previously written a textbook in the Methuen Monographs on Physical Subjects series, began in 1955 when, in the course of reading Sir George Thomson's book 'The Foreseeable Future', he encountered a speculation arising from the well known clock paradox of relativity, sometimes referred to as the paradox of the travelling twin.
- Ledermann: 'Complex Numbers
- A series of books called the Library of Mathematics were edited by W Ledermann.
- One of the early texts in the series was Complex Numbers by Ledermann himself.

- Reviews of Shafarevich's books
- In the series, 'Popular lectures on mathematics'.
- This book is the result of a series of lectures on linear algebra and the geometry of multidimensional spaces given in the 1950s through 1970s by Igor R.
- Igor R Shafarevich gave a series of lectures on linear algebra and geometry at the Moscow State University from the 1950s through the 1970s.
- H L F Helmholtz: 'Theory of music' Prefaces
- By this means that peculiar series of upper partial tones, on the existence of which the present theory of music is essentially founded, receives a new subjective value, entirely independent of external alterations in the quality of tone.
- To illustrate the anatomical descriptions, I have been able to add a series of new woodcuts, principally from Henle's Manual of Anatomy, with the author's permission, for which I here take the opportunity of publicly thanking him.
- Sommerville: 'Geometry of n dimensions
- [In the twenty-seven volumes of the new series of the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society there are barely a dozen papers dealing with higher space.
- There are two main ways in which we may arrive at an idea of higher dimensions: one geometrical, by extending in the upward direction the series of geometrical elements, point, line, surface, solid; the other by invoking algebra and giving extended geometrical interpretations to algebraic relationships.
- Durell and Robson: 'Advanced Trigonometry
- Thus the methods for expanding functions in series focus attention on "remainders" and "limits"; the methods for factorizing functions turn on establishing possible forms and then using the fundamental factor-theorem; the discussion of complex numbers emphasises the fact that complex numbers are just as "real" as real numbers, etc.
- The theory of Infinite Products has been left for this companion volume; it is not so easy to provide a satisfactory ab initio treatment for products as it is for series and the alternative of taking for granted everything that really matters is undesirable.
- Apostol Project
- One of a series of motivational and instructional videotapes intended primarily for students in grades 7-9.
- Animation demonstrates the Gibbs phenomenon of Fourier series.
- H W Turnbull: 'Scottish Contribution to the Calculus
- Interpolation formulae involving successive order of finite differences as well as the power series, involving successive derivatives and found by Taylor and Maclaurin, were used over forty years earlier (1670-1671) by Gregory.
- The notes provide evidence of work by Hudde at Amsterdam prior to 1660 on the logarithmic series, antedating Newton and Mercator.
- Horace Lamb addresses the British Association in 1904, Part 2
- On this view the most refined geometrical demonstration can be resolved into a series of imagined experiments performed with such bodies, or rather with their conventional representations.
- The not result of the preceding survey is that the systems of Geometry, of Mechanics, and even of Arithmetic, on which we base our study of Nature, are all contrivances of the same general kind: they consist of series of abstractions and conventions devised to represent, or rather to symbolise, what is most interesting and most accessible to us in the world of phenomena.

- When a series of elements operating upon each other in accordance with fixed laws produce only other elements belonging to the same series, they are said to constitute a group.
- Ball books
- Science, New Series 5 (113) (1897), 352-353.
- Several years ago the Editor of the 'College Monographs' conceived the idea of a series of volumes dealing separately with the Colleges of our two ancient Universities; since then many historical and illustrated works carrying out, in some degree, this idea have been published.
- Kelvin on the sun, Part 2
- It will again fall inwards, and after a rapidly subsiding series of quicker and quicker oscillations it will subside, probably in the course of two or three years, into a globular star of about the same dimensions, heat, and brightness as our present sun, but differing from him in this, that it will have no rotation.
- A diminishing series of out and in oscillations will follow, and the incandescent globe thus contracting and expanding alternately, in the course it may be of three or four hundred years, will settle to a radius of forty times the radius of the earth's orbit.
- Gattegno's books
- I offer this book as the first in such a series; in it I restrict myself to elementary mathematics, and mainly to the algebra and theory of numbers.
- This is the first in a series of books to be written by the author showing the possibility of making the study of education properly scientific.
- Heaton problems
- Problem: Find the sum of the first n+1 terms of the series
.
- Problem: Sum the infinite series n2/(4n2 - 1)2 beginning with n = 1, n being always odd.
- James Gregory's manuscripts
- His method depended on a series of eliminations, which he carried out fully for the cubic and biquadratic, but only partially for the quintic.
- Actually Gregory did not set too great store by this general method: for, as he wrote in his very last letter to Collins, "I have a method of series going very far beyond it, and, to be ingenuous, I think one of its greatest uses is by drawing learned men from this contemplation which busied so many fine wits."

- One of the books in the series was Introduction to the Theory of Finite Groups by Walter Ledermann.
- John Couch Adams' account of the discovery of Neptune
- Meanwhile the Royal Academy of Sciences of Gottingen had proposed the theory of Uranus as the subject of their mathematical prize, and although the little time which I could spare from important duties in my college prevented me from attempting the complete examination of the theory which a competition for the prize would have required, yet this fact, together with the possession of such a valuable series of observations, induced me to undertake a new solution of the problem.
- After obtaining several solutions differing little from each other, by gradually taking into account more and more terms of the series expressing the perturbations, I communicated to Professor Challis, in September 1845, the final values which I had obtained for the mass, heliocentric longitude, and elements of the orbit of the assumed planet.
- Weil on history
- On the latter date, Euler, referring explicitly to Fagnano's work on the lemniscate, read to the Academy the first of a series of papers, eventually proving in full generality the addition and multiplication theorems for elliptic integrals.

- R A Fisher: 'History of Statistics
- In 1925 R A Fisher published Statistical Methods for Research Workers in the Biological Monographs and Manuals Series by the publisher Oliver and Boyd of Edinburgh in Scotland.
- On the other hand, it is to him we owe the principle that the distribution of a quantity compounded of independent parts shows a whole series of features - the mean, variance, and other cumulants - which are simply the sums of like features of the distributions of the parts.
- G H Hardy addresses the British Association in 1922
- One is to take refuge, as Professor Henry Smith, with visible reluctance, did then, in a series of general propositions to which mathematicians, physicists, and astronomers may all be, expected to return a polite assent.
- The function of a mathematician, then, is simply to observe the facts about his own hard and intricate system of reality, that astonishingly beautiful complex of logical relations which forms the subject-matter of his science, as if he were an explorer looking at a distant range of mountains, and to record the results of his observations in a series of maps, each of which is a branch of pure mathematics.
- Gheorghe Mihoc's books
- The second, entitled "Stochastic processes", deals with Markov chains, ergodic problems, distributions, limit theorems, time series, aleatory mechanics, and mixing processes.
- The first part deals with elements of probability theory; the second is an analysis of statistical distributions, while the third one is devoted to the analysis of time series.

- We may be justified in including in our series the angle of the ecliptic for the Sun, that is to say about 23° 28', or rather, if we assume the epoch of Eudoxus (as Dr Copeland suggested to me long ago) about 23° 45': which angle, in the [ artificial sphere] of Eudoxus, is the angle which the axis of the Sun's second sphere makes with that of his first; and in including for the Moon an angle which, as Eudoxus tells us, is in her case somewhat greater than the Sun's, in fact about 5° more.
- While writing on this subject let me add, in parenthesis, that the very ancient and very decorative 'Greek key-pattern' seems to me to be nothing more nor less than an archaic representation of a planet's apparent course, a series of simplified hippopedes.

- The book originated in a series of lectures given by the author to postgraduate philosophy students specialising in the philosophy of mathematics.
- Poincaré on intuition in mathematics
- Weierstrass leads everything back to the consideration of series and their analytic transformations; to express it better, he reduces analysis to a sort of prolongation of arithmetic; you may turn through all his books without finding a figure.
- It is to perceive the inward reason which makes of this series of successive moves a sort of organized whole.
- Bützberger on Steiner
- However, he did publish Uber bizentrische Polygone, Steinersche Kreis- und Kugelreihen und die Erfindung der Inversion (On Bicentric Polygons, Steiner Series of Circles and of Spheres, and the Invention of Inversion) in 1913, dedicating a separate section for each of the three topics.

- The Open Court Series of Classics of Science and Philosophy, No.
- These memoirs are the final and logically purified statement of many of the most important results of the long series of memoirs begun by Cantor in 1870.
- The South-Troughton quarrel
- The fault found with it was this: when the instrument was turned a little on its axis and then let go, a series of about a dozen short, quick vibrations followed, each lasting about 0.3 or 0.4 second.
- (Drinkwater Bethune wrote lives of Galileo and Kepler in the Library of Useful Knowledge, and with Sir John Lubbock a little book On Probability, in the same series.) Maule at once insisted that Troughton & Simms should be allowed to finish their work according to the plan proposed by Sheepshanks, but only to be paid for if successful.
- Gottingen chairs
- There are, however, a series of reservations in connection with you being called, and the question remains, to what extent I should submit to these reservations, and whether I should perhaps even say right away that Hilbert's coming here would be more suited to our needs in the end.
- to his house and gave us a series of private lectures on some chapters of the theory of functions of complex variables, in particular on Mittag-Leffler's theorem, which I still consider as one of the most impressive experiences of my student life.
- Halmos Set Theory
- Treated thus, the set theory appears as a series of facts about a reality outside us, rather like euclidian geometry, founded on axiomas, was conceived as a series of facts about the space surrounding us.
- Hardy on the Tripos
- And as there is only one test of originality in mathematics, namely the accomplishment of original work, and as it is useless to ask a youth of twenty-two to perform original research under examination conditions, the examination necessarily degenerates into a kind of game, and instruction for it into initiation into a series of stunts and tricks.
- Indeed I am afraid that my advice to reformers might sound like a series of stupid jokes.
- Smith Autograph Papers
- In an earlier article in this series I have called attention to a little side-light thrown upon his life by a note from his collaborator Lalande.
- Of all the mathematicians who added to the reputation of England in the closing years of Newton's life, no one arouses a more sympathetic interest than Abraham De Moivre, author of the well-known Doctrine of Chances, of the even more notable Miscellanea Analytica, of a work on annuities, and one on series, and of various monographs on geometry and the Newtonian calculus.

- Percy MacMahon addresses the British Association in 1901, Part 2
- The results were important algebraically as throwing light on the theory of Algebraic series, but another large class of problems remained untouched, and was considered as being both outside the scope and beyond the power of the method.
- In the case of simple unrestricted partition it gives directly the composition by rows of units which is in fact carried out by the Ferrers-Sylvester graphical representation, and led in the hands of the latter to important results connection with algebraical series which present themselves in elliptic functions and in other departments of mathematics.
- Henry Baker addresses the British Association in 1913
- Though the recurrence of these inquiries is part of a wider consideration of functions of complex variables, it has been associated also with the theory of those series which Fourier used so boldly, and so wickedly, for the conduction of heat.
- This problem has led to the precision of what is meant by a function of real variables, to the question of the uniform convergence of an infinite series, as you may see in early papers of Stokes, to new formulation of the conditions of integration and of the properties of multiple integrals, and so on.
- U N Singh
- he undertook research under the guidance of Professor B N Prasad in the area of Fourier series.
- His thesis examiner, none other than the late Professor E C Titchmarsh, F.R.S., of the University of Oxford had this to say while commenting on the work entitled "Strong Summability of Trigonometric Series": "The thesis displays considerable originality and the proofs of the theorems indicate that the candidate is an extremely talented mathematician".

- Peter's books
- A large part of the theory is made up of the author's own work which has appeared in a series of papers since 1932.
- Beginning in 1932, Rosza Peter has published a series of papers, examining the relationship of various special forms of recursion, and showing the definability of new functions by successively higher types of recursion, which establish her as the leading contributor to the special theory of recursive functions.

- Solve Applied Problems
- Although the subjects of Fourier series, Fourier and Laplace transforms, and integral equations, are not strictly applied mathematics, they are essential for the study of wave motions, including vibrating strings, sound waves and water waves, and for the study of heat conduction.
- Thus the boxes labelled wave motion and heat conduction cannot be opened before the box containing Fourier series has been examined in some detail.
- Hamming's Reviews
- Here and there one sees neat tricks of the trade and finds discussions of topics not usually found in texts - for example, the summation of series and the abovementioned band-limited functions.
- Hamming's text is designed to introduce engineers and scientists to the basic ideas of numerical analysis through a brief survey of many (twelve) topics at an elementary level, including optimization, Fourier series, and random processes.

- Mary Boole writing
- The questions so often put by parents, 'At what age do you think my child had better begin Algebra?' (or Trigonometry) and, 'Can you recommend me to a good teacher?' really mean something analogous to this:- 'I intend to keep my child ignorant of all experiences concerning fruit, and all processes connected with it , till he is old enough to begin receiving straight away, in one continuous series of lessons, information, conveyed by verbal explanations, about how to stand on one's legs, how to climb ladders, how to use sickles, how fruits taste, their hygienic and economic value, their botanical classification, and the best means of preserving them.
- At what age do you consider this series of lessons should begin, and whom do you recommend me to employ to give it?' The only answer one could make to such a question would be that there is no age at which any such course should begin, and no person who ought to be asked to give it.

- Luca Valerio's scientific career
- In fact, his work represents, at least for the Archimedean tradition, the apex of that intellectual movement, in the sense that with it a series of themes that had appeared throughout the mathematics of the Cinquecento were brought to maturity, a level to which subsequent research would necessarily have to raise the framework of Renaissance mathematics, which was oriented especially toward rediscovery and translation of, and commentary on, classical texts.
- In this paper we present a series of unpublished materials that should help to shed light on some of the questions raised above, especially on the connections between Valerio and the Society of Jesus, on his academic career, on his relations with Margherita Sarrocchi and on some related matters.
- Charlotte Angas Scott's papers

- Brinkley Copley Medal
- The volume for 1807 contains an important paper, on the General Term of a Series in the Inverse Method of finite Differences; in which, taking up a subject of investigation on which both Lagrange and Laplace had written, he has surmounted a difficulty which had remained even after the investigations of these illustrious geometers.
- He has examined all Mr Pond's results, reasoning upon the law of the aberration of light, the effects of refraction and of differences of temperature, and has compared his own series of observations with those of other astronomers, and he seems entirely convinced of the accuracy of his general conclusions.
- Comments by Charlotte Angas Scott
- No more damaging charge can be brought against any treatise laying claim to thoroughness than that of recklessness in the use of infinite series; and yet Mr Edwards has everywhere laid himself open to this charge.
- One of the most difficult things to teach the beginner in mathematics is to give proper attention to the convergency of the series dealt with.

- Regenerative Eugenics has the special purpose of studying, through series of successive generations, how new stocks rise, what circumstances determine their formation in the midst of the obscure mass of the population Ñ a formation which can hardly be explained by the heredity of superior factors heretofore non-extant Ñ and what importance may be ascribed in their formation to the influence of happy combinations arising from cross-breeding and favored by natural selection, such as the change of environment caused by emigration, or the selection of the original populations which occurs in emigration.

- The assumption however of the independent existence of the signs + and - removes this limitation, and renders the performance of the operation denoted by - equally possible in all cases: and it is this assumption with effects the separation of arithmetical and symbolical Algebra, and which renders it necessary to establish the principles of this science upon a basis of their own: for the assumption in question can result from no process of reasoning from the principles or operations of Arithmetic, and if considered as a generalisation of them, it is not the last result in a series of propositions connected with them: it must be considered therefore as an independent principle, which is suggested as a means of ending a difficulty which results from the application of arithmetical operations to general symbols.

Quotations
- Quotations by Euler
- Notable enough, however, are the controversies over the series 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 + 1 - ..
- Understanding of this question is to be sought in the word "sum"; this idea, if thus conceived -- namely, the sum of a series is said to be that quantity to which it is brought closer as more terms of the series are taken -- has relevance only for convergent series, and we should in general give up the idea of sum for divergent series.
- Quotations by Abel
- If you disregard the very simplest cases, there is in all of mathematics not a single infinite series whose sum has been rigorously determined.
- With the exception of the geometric series, there does not exist in all of mathematics a single infinite series whose sum has been determined rigorously.
- The divergent series are the invention of the devil, and it is a shame to base on them any demonstration whatsoever.
- By using them, one may draw any conclusion he pleases and that is why these series have produced so many fallacies and so many paradoxes ..
- Quotations by Bernoulli Jacob
- The sum of an infinite series whose final term vanishes perhaps is infinite, perhaps finite.
- Even as the finite encloses an infinite series
.
- Quotations by Heaviside

- By the middle 1920s it was felt that the size of page used was too small and a second series of the Proceedings was begun in 1927.
- Each volume of the new series generally consisted of four parts, published over a period of two years.
- Although it is not mentioned in the minutes, an important reason for embarking on a second series must have been the wish to raise the level of the papers published, which, although it had risen considerably over the years, remained somewhat uneven.
- It was under Turnbull's editorship that the second series of the Proceedings was begun in 1927 and it was largely due to his efforts that the second series became a mathematical journal of repute.

- Indeed the authors of this note acknowledge the generous support and encouragement of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society for the Groups St Andrews series of conferences.
- For many years from 1913 to 2003 there was a series of summer colloquia, the St Andrews Colloquia, which were held in St Andrews from 1926 at roughly four-yearly intervals.
- The EMS: the first hundred years
- This suggestion, however, was not taken up and those present at the meeting turned their attention to a series of eight motions setting up the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, its aim being the mutual improvement of its members in the mathematical sciences, pure and applied.
- Over the years the percentage of university members has, of course, increased; however, as late as 1926, just before the second series of the Proceedings was instituted, their percentage had only risen from 26% to 36%.
- Edinburgh Mathematical Notes
- We should remark that The Second Series of the Proceedings started in 1927 with a larger page size.

- (The coefficient C±(n) in fact depends on the position of the point (wn, wn+1) on the above-mentioned curve (XY - 1)(5 - X - Y) = 6.) Expanding the function C±(n) numerically into a Fourier series, we discover that it is a Jacobi theta function, and since theta functions (or quotients of them) are elliptic functions, this leads quickly to elliptic curves and to the above curve E.
