This book resulted from two reports (published in 1928 and 1932) of the Committee on Rational Transformations, established by the National Research Council. The purpose of the reports was to give a comprehensive survey of the literature on the subject. Each chapter is regarded as a separate unit that can be read independently.


Graduate students and research mathematicians.
