This classic text has entered and held the field as the standard book on the applications of analysis to the transcendental functions. The authors explain the methods of modern analysis in the first part of the book and then proceed to a detailed discussion of the transcendental function, unhampered by the necessity of continually proving new theorems for special applications. In this way the authors have succeeded in being rigorous without imposing on the reader the mass of detail that so often tends to make a rigorous demonstration tedious. Researchers and students will find this book as valuable as ever.

'This classic text is known to and used by thousands of mathematicians and students of mathematics throughout the world.' L'Enseignement Mathematique 'Whittaker and Watson has entered and held the field as the standard book of reference in English on the applications of analysis to the transcendental functions. This end has been successfully achieved by following the sensible course of explaining the methods of modern analysis in the first part of the book and then proceeding to a detailed discussion of the transcendental function, unhampered by the necessity of continually proving new theorems for special applications. In this way the authors have succeeded in being rigorous without imposing on the reader the mass of detail which so often tends to make a rigorous demonstration tedious.' Nature 'A wealth of mathematical ideas with a touch of old times make this book a pleasure to read.' European Mathematical Society
