A course of modern analysis : an introduction to the general theory of infinite processes and of analytic functions; with
an account of the principal transcendental functions by
E. T Whittaker(
Book
)
320 editions published between 1902 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This classic text has entered and held the field as the standard book on the applications of analysis to the transcendental functions. The authors explain the methods of modern analysis in the first part of the book and then proceed to a detailed discussion of the transcendental function, unhampered by the necessity of continually proving new theorems for special applications. In this way the authors have succeeded in being rigorous without imposing on the reader the mass of detail that so often tends to make a rigorous demonstration tedious. Researchers and students will find this book as valuable as ever
