About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1932 as number twenty=seven in the Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics series, this book provides a concise account of the theory of modular invariants as embodied in the work of Dickson, Glenn and Hazlett. Appendices are included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in modular invariants and the history of mathematics.
