By Luther Pfahler Eisenhart

A radical, entire, and unified creation, this quantity presents remarkable insights into coordinate geometry. Invariants of conic sections and quadric surfaces obtain complete remedies. Algebraic equations at the first measure in and 3 unknowns are rigorously reviewed. during the publication, effects are formulated accurately, with truly said theorems. greater than 500 precious workouts. 1939 version.

In tion that the direction upward along a line inclined to the axes is positive, and showed that the direction cosine JJL is always positive, and that X is positive or negative according as inclined as in Fig. 7 or in Fig. 8. 2) where when We + = 0. 1) is a = 1 first + by + c = h so that eb the case > when and ea > when inclined as in Fig. 10, \ s where P\(x\, y\) is a point above the line and P 2 (*2, y 2 ) is the point in which the perpendicular through Pi to the line meets it. We denote by d the distance from P 2 to PI, d being a positive number, since it is in the positive direction measured of the line P2Pi.

6). It is customary to denote the numerical, or absolute, value thus 2 = 2, of a number a by a 2 = 2. 6) with < h% this means that hi and /* 2 differing in sign, and hi x and y are the coordinates of a point P lying below Pi on the line through PI and P 2 as the reader will see by considering the above definition of P for the case h\ < A 2 and drawing a figure. In accordance with custom we say that in these cases P(#, y) divides the line segment PiP 2 externally in the ratio Ai/A 2 and that when P is a point of the segment, it divides the segment PiP 2 internally.
