Promotional Information

The classic text on pure mathematics; this centenary edition includes a Foreword by T. W. Koerner.


'Hardy ... writes in a vigorous and enthusiastic and yet still precise style, with a lot of comments on how the stuff, brand new at the time, should be viewed by the reader. ... The reader feels safe and well-led. ... in a hundred years, the book has lost none of its power. It is still a great reading and a unique inspiration. May the generations of young mathematicians for which Hardy's book will be the gate to analysis continue forever.' EMS Newsletter
"First published in 1908, this classic still gives undergraduate students their first dose of the differential and integral calculus, the properties of infinite series and other notions involving limit. Hardy's nineteenth-century sensibilities and approach based on the "Cambridge way" (which produced such fine mathematicians as Maxwell, Kelvin, Rayleigh and Stokes) may have been eroding as the result of new work on the Continent at the time." Books News
"Although the sequence of the presentation of the fundamentals of mathematics has changed over the last century, the substance has not. There is no greater evidence of this fact than this classic work by Hardy, which could be used without alteration or additional explanation as a text in modern college mathematics courses... The mathematical influence of G. H. Hardy over mathematical education was and remains strong, as can be seen by reading this masterpiece." Charles Ashbacher, Journal of Recreational Mathematics
