Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ... Compare the use of unity here with its use in Chapter V. The theorems already given will suffice to show that the language and subject matter of the Ausdehnungslehre can be utilized in the study of logic. The material for this chapter is taken from Robert Grassmann's Ausdehnungslehre (Slettin, 1891). Robert Grassmann aided his brother Hermann in the preparation of the Ausdehnungslehre of 1862 and the Formcnlehre of 1872, and was always deeply interested in the subject. The article in the Britannica already referred to and Professor Stokes' article in the January (1900) number of The American Mathematical Monthly show that there is considerable diversity of opinion regarding the philosophy underlying the application of mathematics to logic. INTEGRATION OF ELLIPTIC INTEGRALS. By G. B. M. ZEEE. A. M.. Pb. D.. Professor of Chemistry and Physics, The Temple College, Philadelphia, Pa. DEPARTMENTS. SOLUTIONS OF PROBLEMS. ARITHMETIC. Aprops of the ending of a century, the following is said to have been written on New Year's Day, 1801, by Theodore Dwight (1764--1846), the brother of Timothy Dwight, the distinguished Congregational divine.

But took one more to make a hundred. Strange at the 18th century's close While light in beams effulgent glows. When bright illumination's ray Has chased the darkness far away, Heads filled with mathematics lore Dispute if two and two make four. Go on, ye scientific sages. Collect your light a few more ages, Perhaps as swells the vast amount A century hence you'll learn more
