First published in 1932, “Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Standpoint” explores some of the most complicated aspects of fundamental mathematics. One of the finest mathematical minds of his day, Professor Klein attempts to reduce “the gap between the school and the university” in this book, covering such subjects as complex numbers, real equations, special properties of integers, the first extension of the notion of number, and logarithmic and exponential functions. This volume constitutes essential reading for maths instructors and students planning to become maths instructors, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. Contains three sections: “Arithmetic”, “Algebra”, and “Analysis”. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
