James Joseph Sylvester FRS HFRSE (3 September 1814 – 15 March 1897) was an English mathematician. He made fundamental contributions to matrix theory, invariant theory, number theory, partition theory, and combinatorics. He played a leadership role in American mathematics in the later half of the 19th century as a professor at the Johns Hopkins University and as founder of the American Journal of Mathematics. At his death, he was a professor at Oxford.

Sylvester's papers are still make quite interesting reading, even though invariant theory has moved on from these types of questions. These four volumes contain papers on many areas of mathematics, and they make very good reading.

The Collected Mathematica. has been added to your Cart. Originally published in 1909, this book forms the third in four volumes of James Joseph Sylvester's mathematical papers, covering the period from 1870 to 1883. Together these volumes provide a comprehensive resource that will be of value to anyone with an interest in Sylvester's theories and the history of mathematics.

James Joseph Sylvester. From the Preface: "The longest paper in volume 1 is "On the Theory of the Syzygetic Relations of two Rational Integral Functions, comprising an application to the Theory of Sturm's Functions", and to this many of the shorter papers in the volume are contributory. the volume contains also Sylvester's dialytic method of elimination, his Essay on Canonical Forms, and early investigations. in the theory of Invariants

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.

James Joseph Sylvester (1814-1897), a mathematician, poet, and wit, was one of the contributors to the nineteenth-century English tradition in algebra. 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.
