Overview

Sir Horace Lamb (1849–1934) the British mathematician, wrote a number of influential works in classical physics. A pupil of Stokes and Clerk Maxwell, he taught for ten years as the first professor of mathematics at the University of Adelaide before returning to Britain to take up the post of professor of physics at the Victoria University of Manchester (where he had first studied mathematics at Owens College). As a teacher and writer his stated aim was clarity: 'somehow to make these dry bones live'. The first edition of this work was published in 1897, the third revised edition in 1919, and a further corrected version just before his death. This edition, reissued here, remained in print until the 1950s. As with Lamb's other textbooks, each section is followed by examples.
