This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1878 edition. Excerpt: ...27 + 2-7 = 297, this is a good deal less than 32, and hence any beat must be faint, proceeding to add another tenth, 29-7 +2-7 = 32-4, which is so nearly 32 that any beats must be disregarded. For 45, 48 we have 45 + 4-5 = 49 5, which is very nearly 48, but larger. The beats will therefore be quite distinct beats. Hence the interval 9,16 is either a disturbed Octave or disturbed major Sixth, of which the former is more easy to recognize. Every chord and combination in just and tempered intonation has to be thus investigated, and its value determined. It must be recollected, however, that the result gives the isolated, and not the combined value, and that dissidences, independently of temperament, can often be used with excellent effect. Solutton by S. Roberts, M.A.'; L. W. Jones, B.A.; and others. Tho radii of curvature at corresponding points of a curvo and its inverse to any modulus subtend tho same anglo at the pole. It is immaterial therefore whether we consider the curve au = f (9) or ar = p (0) where = rl. In either case, making use of the formula for the centre of curva 5118. (By R. F. Scott, B.A.)--If any binary quantic be transformed by means of a linear substitution, prove that any invariant of the transformed quantic is equal to its value for the original quantic multiplied by a power of the determinant of the substitution equal to the weight of the invariant. I. Solutton by J. J. Walker, M.A. A proof of the fact stated in this question is contained implicitly in that for the weight of the invariant of a binary quantic. But the statement may be extended to linear transformations of quantics in any number of variables, for which the case of three will serve. Let the coefficient of any term of a ternary quantic be more
