Weeks' volume is a translation from the Latin of the third and last edition of Waring's Meditationes algebraicae. Weeks incorporates many corrections and additions that had appeared separately. The appendix offers the only critical review of Meditationes ever published, written in 1923 by Franz X. Mayer.


"The English translation of Waring's Meditationes algebraicae will be a valuable resource for those interested in seeing how the detailed algebraic results of earlier days provided the necessary motivation for the development of the central ideas and notations of modern algebra."
