This work is of value to those who desire to review their courses in college mathematics. It deals particularly with methods of calculating results of precision measurements as used in quantitative and in theoretical chemistry. The author takes up for first consideration the important theory of errors in chemical calculations. This is followed by interpretation of experimental results, followed by a more mathematical discussion of interpolations. Considerable space is devoted to the discussion of experimental results from a mathematical rather than a chemical standpoint. This is most appropriately a book for those in close contact with physical or physical-organic investigations.
