FOR MACMILLAN AND Co.
London: GEORGE BELL.
A TREATISE ON
WITH NUMEROUS EXAMPLES.
By I. TODHUNTER, M.A.,
FELLOW AND ASSISTANT TUTOR OF ST. JOHN'S COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE.
186. b. 16.
In this work will be found all the Propositions which usually appear in treatises on Theoretical Statics. To the different chapters examples are appended, which have been selected from the University and College Examination Papers; these will furnish ample exercise in the application of the principles of the subject.
Some of the Examples in the earlier chapters assume results which are obtained at a later part of the book; the student who has no previous acquaintance with the subject may therefore, on his first perusal of the book, omit the more difficult Examples of the first six chapters.
I have made considerable use of Mr. Pratt's Treatise on Mechanical Philosophy, which was placed at my disposal by the Publishers. Mr. Pratt's Treatise is now nearly out of print, and the present work may be regarded as a republication, with large additions, of that portion of it which treats of Statics.
I am requested by the Publishers to state, that it is probable that the remaining portions of Mr. Pratt’s Treatise will be republished at some future time, with such additions and improvements as may seem needful.
