This work is essentially a text-book for beginners in the dill'eri nt in I and integral calculus. It, differs from the Current text-books of that subject intended for students of mathematics chiefly in the greater number of applications of the mathematical results to problems of physics, chemistry ami allied sciences. In this respect it is decidedly an interesting work. Dining the past lew decades a marked tendency has been generally noticeable on the part of writers in this field to seek to enhance the interest of the abstract theory by illustrative Examples showing how the theory can be applied under diverse concrete conditions. The great obstacle in tlie way has been the fact that such illustrations are really illuminating only to one who is well acquainted with the Held in which the application is made, and that there exists only a limited number of concrete situations in natural sciences which
