Abstract:

The Carus Mathematical Monographs are an expression of the desire of Mrs. Mary Hegeler Carus and of her son, Dr. Edward H. Carus, to contribute to the dissemination of mathematical knowledge by making accessible at nominal cost a series of expository presentations of the best thoughts and keenest researches in pure and applied mathematics. The publication of the first four of these monographs was made possible by Mrs. Carus as sole trustee of the Edward C. Hegeler Trust Fund. The sales from these have resulted in the Carus Monograph Fund, and the Mathematical Association of America has used this as a revolving book fund to publish the succeeding monographs. The expositions of mathematical subjects that the monographs contain are set forth in a manner comprehensible not only to teachers and students specializing in mathematics, but also to scientific workers in other fields. More generally, the monographs are intended for the wide circle of thoughtful people familiar with basic graduate or advanced undergraduate mathematics, encountered in the study of mathematics itself or in the context of related disciplines, who wish to extend their knowledge without prolonged and critical study of the mathematical journals and treatises. -- from dust jacket.
