When George Shoobridge Carr (1837-1914) wrote his Synopsis of Elementary Results he intended it as an aid to students preparing for degree-level examinations such as the Cambridge Mathematical Tripos, for which he provided private tuition. He would have been startled to see the two volumes, first published in 1880 and 1886 respectively, reissued more than a century later. Notably, in 1903 the work fell into the hands of the Indian prodigy Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920) and greatly influenced his mathematical education. It is the interaction between a methodical teaching aid and the soaring spirit of a self-taught genius which gives this reissue its interest. Volume 1 contains sections on mathematical tables, algebra, the theory of equations, plane trigonometry, spherical trigonometry, elementary geometry and geometrical conics. Volume 2 covers differential calculus, integral calculus, calculus of variations, differential equations, calculus of finite differences, plane coordinate geometry and solid coordinate geometry.
Volume 1: Part I. 1. Mathematical tables; 2. Algebra; 3. Theory of equations; 4. Plane trigonometry; 5. Spherical trigonometry; 6. Elementary geometry; 7. Geometrical conics. Volume 2: Part II. 8. Differential calculus; 9. Integral calculus; 10. Calculus of variations; 11. Differential equations; 12. Calculus of finite differences; 13. Plane coordinate geometry; 14. Solid coordinate geometry; Joint index to the Synopsis and to the papers on pure mathematics contained in the undermentioned British and foreign journals and transactions of societies.
