About Author

James Joseph Sylvester (1814-1897), a mathematician, poet, and wit, was one of the contributors to the nineteenth-century English tradition in algebra. He was also an early figure in the establishment of graduate education in mathematics in the United States. One of his main contributions, with Arthur Cayley, was to initiate the theory of algebraic invariants. Among Sylvester's classic results are his theory of elementary divisors and his law of inertia of quadratic forms. This four-volume set contains his collected works.
