Description:
The book is divided into two parts. Practically all the first part should be well within the understanding of the ordinary person. Part 2 is more mathematical, but an effort has been made throughout to explain results in such a way that the reader shall gain a general idea of the theory and be able to apply it without needing to master all the actual proofs. The whole is meant, not as an exhaustive treatise, but merely as a first course introducing the reader to more serious works, and, since real inspiration is to be found nowhere so surely as at the source, it is intended to encourage and fit him to pursue the subject further by consulting at least the most important original papers referred to in the text, only enough references being given to awaken curiosity.
