Flows in networks by
L. R Ford(
Book
)
13 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The techniques presented by Ford and Fulkerson spurred the development of powerful computational tools for solving and analyzing network flow models, and also furthered the understanding of linear programming. In addition, the book helped illuminate and unify results in combinatorial mathematics while emphasizing proofs based on computationally efficient construction

Pointwise discontinuous functions by
Lester R Ford(
)
3 editions published in 1912 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The concept of pointwise discontinuity is a fairly recent one in mathematics. Originally introduced as a convenient term in the study of integration, it has quite outgrown its former sphere of usefulness and has had an everwidening field of application in modern analysis. The appearance in 1899 of the doctor's thesis of M. Baire, in which he investigated the properties of a function approached by continuous functions and found that the necessary and sufficient condition for such approach involves the idea of pointwise discontinuity, firmly grounded the conception in the fundamentals of mathematical theory. The considerations of the present paper involve a number of investigations into certain phases of the subject of pointwise discontinuity; such as, the construction and classification of pointwise discontinuous functions; their properties, singly and in combination, etc. We have just remarked that this subject is closely related to the question of approach of continuous functions, and this phase of the subject is treated in Chapter III. The final chapter is devoted to a short study of the oscillation function in the general case
