Advanced Vector Analysis

Trivia About Advanced Vector A Apart from the merits of the book as a text on Statistical Mathematics, it will also be a useful help-book for the students of the degree course in Statistics, when read in conjunction with the usual texts. Weatheerburn book will certainly be of use to those who do not read German or Italian ; moreover, there are plenty of instructive examples.

Analsis item has been added to Shortlist. The book is based on a course of lectures given by the author, and first impressions are that the subject has been dealt with competently and well, so far as it is taken. We welcome this elementary treatise on Vector Analysis as a book that has been wanted in English for some time. Exchange offer is not applicable with this product.

The reader, it is believed, will agree that it is a worthy contribution in a distinguished tradition. A test of vecyor is described as based on the occurrence of a very rare event.

Since a knowledge of vectors may benefit many students who will never require the nabla or the dyadic, he has designed a volume complete in itself to cover the elementary parts of the subject, and here we have an admirable account of vector algebra and of differentiation and integration with respect to a single scalar variable, followed by a synopsis and preceded by a historical sketch that is well balanced and well written.

It is, however, even more concerned with the mathematics of statistics, so far as its mathematical level permits, and by not including a n account of some of the more recent developments dealt with in Hoel, space is found for a fuller treatment of some of its subjects.

An able presentation of the elements of the subject by vector methods, a clearly written text with an abundance of good exercises, this book should prove a welcome addition to the literature in differential geometry. Richard Hollingshead added it Nov 21, He has not; so far as is known, published any papers on the theory of statistics, and it is thus interesting to see the attitude of a mathematician, with some ability as a text-book writer, who has now turned to statistics as his theme.


Moreover, it is worthy of remark in this connection that the author’s geometric insight and intuition are as clear and penetrating as his geometric interest is dominant. The present writer treats geometry more kindly. Greater mathematical clarity seems to be obtained at points, especially in the first half, but the discussion of the meaning of the westherburn from the viewpoint of application to experimental work is ewatherburn more brief.

How can we help you? Great use is made of vector methods, and in this respect the author rather surprisingly claims some originality of treatment.

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The author’s object in this book is to present the simpler portions of vector analysis and to apply them to portions of mechanics. Thank You for submitting your response. Exchange Offer cannot be clubbed with Bajaj Finserv for this product.

This has resulted in the appearance of several new volumes on differential geometry, in which the methods of the standard works on the subject have been replaced by those which have proved so successful in wewtherburn modern requirements. It is written at about the same analysus level and for the most part, as is natural, deals with the topics found in the other book.

It is a sound and workmanlike volume. The author of this book is Professor of Mathematics in the University of Western Australia, and has previously published books on differential geometry and Riemannian geometry and the tensor calculus.

Thank you for your interest You will be notified when this product will be in stock. The treatment in both volumes is in terms of vectors. The geometry of curves in space is treated briefly, kinematics and dynamics of a particle, systems of particles, rigid kinematics, rigid dynamics, rigid statics.

Elementary vector analysis, with application to geometry and physics

The Mathematical Gazette 11 The book should serve as a simple introduction to these subjects treated by way of the vector methods, and for the purposes in view is admirably adapted to the student’s needs. In fact, after several readings, the reviewer is not clear what definition of a frequency distribution would be consistent with the statements in the text The work is clearly and concisely written, and should prove a useful introduction to a very important branch of modern geometry.


Here we begin with partial differentiation and are introduced at once to the gradient of a scalar and the divergence and curl of a vector function. Dr Weatherburn is known to readers of the Gazette as a firm believer in the use of vectors, and a text-book from him is very welcome.

Shaw : Review: C. E. Weatherburn, Elementary Vector Analysis

The first volume of this work see this Bulletin, vol. The definitions are geometric for the scalar and the vector products, the vectors being always thought of as lines, or geometric vectors. The geometry is the thing that holds the centre of the stage, and the analytical machinery is relegated to a subordinate place in the background where it ought to be in a book on geometry. Item s Added To cart Qty. While the mathematical analysis is undoubtedly clear it is possible that many will not be able to follow it in detail, and the conclusions of the analysis are not emphasized strongly.

The treatment is admirably clear and interesting, and exhibits the advantages of the use of vector methods in mathematical physics, provided that they are kept in their proper place.

Within the self-imposed restrictions, the author-a reputed writer of mathematical texts has dealt with the subject admirably. More Mechanics Books From Books. After weatherbuen introductory chapter recalling certain results eeatherburn algebra and analysis which are constantly used in the sequel, the author proceeds in three chapters to develop the elements of the tensor calculus, the operations of raising and lowering suffices by means of fundamental symmetric tensor of the second rank, and the theory of covariant differentiation.

This criticism of vector methods is one with which Professor Weatherburn disagrees, for he adds a special chapter in order to explain results which he has obtained by these means.
