Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. A Course of Pure Mathematics by G. Since its publication inthis textbook has become a classic work for successive generations of student mathematicians to refer to for the fundamental ideas of differential and integral calculus, the properties of infinite series, as well as other topics involving the notion of limit.

Although the sequence of the presentation of the fundamentals of mathematics has changed over the last century, the substance has not. There is no greater evidence of this fact than this classic work by Hardy, which could be used without alteration or additional explanation as a text in modern college mathematics courses. Hardy was rightfully known as a bit of an eccentric, yet he was a brilliant pure mathematician and he will always be held in the highest regard for his actions in aiding the In Although the sequence of the presentation of the fundamentals of mathematics has changed over the last century, the substance has not.
Hardy was rightfully known as a bit of an eccentric, yet he was a brilliant pure mathematician and he will always be held in the highest regard for his actions in aiding the Indian prodigy Ramanujan. Less well known but still extremely significant is his expository writing; there are few who wrote as clearly as he did. This book was extremely influential in the teaching of mathematics over the last century.
The primary subject matter is: The mathematical influence of G. Hardy over mathematical education was and remains strong, as can be seen by reading this masterpiece. Published in Journal of Recreational Mathematics, reprinted with permission and this review appears on Amazon Jan 07, Yasiru reviews will soon be removed and linked to blog rated it it was amazing Shelves: While more contemporary introductions to real analysis like Rudin’s strive for elegance and perhaps seem tryingly terse while tying the subject neatly together, Hardy manages to convey an excitement about the subject that may be invaluable motivation for a beginner.
There is a historical precedent for this attitude, since during Hardy’s time English mathematics was almost wholly concerned with the applied side continuing the tradition of Newton and many other fine applied mathematicians over the While more contemporary introductions to real analysis like Rudin’s strive for elegance and perhaps seem tryingly terse while tying the subject neatly together, Hardy manages to convey an excitement about the subject that may be invaluable motivation for a beginner.
There is a historical precedent for this attitude, since during Hardy’s time English mathematics was almost wholly concerned with the applied side continuing the tradition of Newton and many other fine applied mathematicians over the years.
Hardy’s aim was .gh.hardy spark interest in analysis where it had not before taken ground. The organisation of the material and what is emphasised may not always be as things would be done today, but Hardy is ever rigorous, and the bu of arguments together with the wealth of challenging problems make for an engaging style.
This an ideal read either on its own, or as a complement to a prescribed course text on analysis. Jan 26, Matt rated it it was amazing. Embarrassingly, the problems remain extremely difficult for me.
I long for an answer and study guide. Jan 29, Lee rated it liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Apr 08, Ian Carmichael rated it it was amazing. Beautiful writing, and typesetting. I decided to read through this book to see if it was worth studying in detail.
As in a few pages a day and writing out mostly everything by hand to really learn the material. What I have found was a lot of the things covered in this book are in any modern calculus book and because of the old notation used in equations and the amount of skips in the proofs, etc.
I was constantly going back to my calculus book to fill in what Hardy left out.

So I said to myself I might as well be reading my calcul I decided to read through this book to see if it was worth studying in detail. So I said to myself I might as well be reading my calculus book than Hardy’s book. The techniques on integration seem dated. If you want a book with similar integral problems look at the PDF of N. Piskunov Differential and Integral Calculus.
He gives examples and steps that are very easy to follow. I learned that one of the integration techniques is called Euler substitution. Google it for yourself. Sure this book my have things others do not, but you can compare 10 modern math books and they each will have something not in the other.
The problems require a skill that reading the book will not give you. Many are modern day Putnam equivalent.

They are part of the G.h.haryd Tripos and students had to spend 3 years to prepare for the test to graduate. To do well you had to hire coaches, and their only job was to prepare you for the exam. So the problems are probably not the best for self study, unless you’ve had training in math competitions. I have the 10th edition and I’ve only been reading it for a short time but the cover is becoming frail and rough in my hands.
It was perfectly smooth and I only read it in my room. Oct 19, William Schram rated it it was amazing Shelves: Hardy is meant to be an introduction to math that has no direct applications. Although people with interest in such things as engineering can gain something from this book, they are not the primary intended audience. Since this book is before calculators it also has couse lot of interesting things about it, like the Root Extraction formula and other stuff like that.
As the blurb on the back mentions, this book mostly covers mathematics that utilizes the notion of the limit. So Calculus topics are covered in here. The table of contents goes further in depth into what you might find if you just want to skim it. All in all, this book was quite well done, with this edition being a reprint of the tenth edition. Excellent read, would recommend to any A level Further Mathematics student, I should have finished it then.

Godfrey Harold Hardy FRS was a prominent English mathematician, known for his achievements in number theory and mathematical analysis. Non-mathematicians usually know him for A Mathematician’s Apology, his essay from on the aesthetics of mathematics.
The apology is often considered one of the best insights into the mind of a working mathematician written for the layman. His relationship as ment Godfrey Harold Hardy FRS was a prominent English mathematician, known for his achievements in number theory and mathematical analysis. His relationship as mentor, from onwards, of the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan has become celebrated.
Hardy almost immediately recognized Ramanujan’s extraordinary albeit untutored brilliance, and Hardy and Ramanujan became close collaborators.
