When George Shoobridge Carr (1837-1914) wrote his Synopsis of Elementary Results he intended it as an aid to students preparing for degree-level examinations like the Cambridge Tripos. He would have been startled to see the two volumes, first published in 1880 and 1886, reprinted more than a century later. However, it fell into the hands of Srinivasa Ramanujan and seems to have been the basis of his mathematical education. It is the interaction between a dry teaching aid and the soaring spirit of a self-taught genius which gives this reissue its interest.

Book Description Cambridge Library Collection, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. When George Shoobridge Carr (1837-1914) wrote his Synopsis of Elementary Results he intended it as an aid to students preparing for degree-level examinations such as the Cambridge Mathematical Tripos, for which he provided private tuition. He would have been startled to see the two volumes, first published in 1880 and 1886 respectively, reissued more than a century later. Notably, in 1903 the work fell into the hands of the Indian prodigy Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920) and greatly influenced his mathematical education. It is the interaction between a methodical teaching aid and the soaring spirit of a self-taught genius which gives this reissue its interest. Volume 1 contains sections on mathematical tables, algebra, the theory of equations, plane trigonometry, spherical trigonometry, elementary geometry and geometrical conics. Volume 2 covers differential calculus, integral calculus, calculus of variations, differential equations, calculus of finite differences, plane coordinate geometry and solid coordinate geometry.
