First published in 1936, this book is the 1943 printing, 623 pages. Doherty was President of Carnegie Institute of Technology, and Keller was an consulting Engineer at Lockheed Aircraft. This book was "one of a series written in the interest of the General Electric Engineering Program" "The great increase in the use of mathematics in engineering during the last decade or so is merely one phase of a general increase through-out the whole field of applied mathematics. In the latter field, Tensor analysis is now the everyday language of the physicist; the Hamilton's principle, involving the calculus of variations, is one of the chief standby theorems of mathematical physics. Courant and Hilbert's Methoden der mathematischen Physik is quite as much a textbook of mathematics as it is of physics. The development of wave mechanics has made the concepts, common property of the chemist as well as of the physicist and mathematician. Modern theories of ballistics are concerned almost entirely with the solution of certain differential equations." VERY GOOD HARDCOVERS. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
