The author uses $D((d + {B^2})/4,B)$. The author omits this row and records the values of $D$ directly. H. N.

Savidge see B.A.A.S., Report, 1916, p. 122; there are also corrections by H. B. Dwight. Savidge gave tables of ker, kei and their first derivatives and other tables in B.A.A.S., Reports, 1915, p. 36-38, and 1916, p. 108-121. An abridgement of some of the tables in these Reports is given by H. B. Dwight in (a) Tables of Integrals and Other Mathematical Data, New York, Macmillan, 1934; see RMT 154; and (b) Mathematical Tables, New York, McGraw-Hill, 1941; see RMT 143. The latter has $5$-place tables of functions and derivatives for $\vartheta = {45^0},{135^0}$. P. M. Morse, “The transmission of sound inside pipes,” Acoustical So. Am., J., v. 11, 1939, p. 205. S.

Debye, “Interferenz von Röntgenstrahlen und Wärmebewegung,” Annalen d. Phys., s. 4, v. 43, 1914, p. 85-86. We have already drawn attention (MTAC, p. 66) to a valuable volume, Smithsonian Mathematical Formulae and Tables of Elliptic Functions, 1922 (corrected reprint 1939), 314 p. The Mathematical Formulae (p. 1-219) were prepared by the physicist Edwin P. Adams. He writes, “In order to keep the volume within reasonable bounds, no tables of indefinite and definite integrals have been included. For a brief collection, that of the late Professor B. O. Peirce can hardly be improved upon; and the elaborate collection of Bierens de Haan show how inadequate any brief tables of definite integrals would be. A short list of useful tables of this kind, as well as of other volumes, having an object similar to this one, is appended.” Nevertheless, there is much in common with the volumes under review. Dwight doubtless received more than one suggestion from this volume which has a goodly number of literature references. In the useful chapter on infinite series, p. 109-144, there is still one error, as Mr. W. D. Lambert, of the Coast and Geodetic Survey, has recently pointed out; on p. 122, under 6.42, no. 4, the third and fifth terms of the right-hand member should each be preceded by the sign —. Legendre and Bessel functions are considered at some length on p. 191-219.
