Andrew Russell Forsyth (1858–1942) was an influential Scottish mathematician notable for incorporating the advances of Continental mathematics within the British tradition. Originally published in 1900, this book constitutes the second of six volumes in Forsyth's Theory of Differential Equations series, concentrating specifically on ordinary equations which are not linear. The text contains detailed information on the development of this area and substantial contributions made to it. All sources are quoted in their proper connection and a few fresh investigations are added. Examples are given, where necessary, in order to provide illustrations of various methods. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in differential equations and the history of mathematics.

Table of Contents
2. Cauchy's theorem on the existence of regular integrals of a system of equations
3. Classes of non-ordinary points connected with the form of the equation of the first order and first degree in the derivative
4. Influence, upon the integral, of an accidental singularity of the first kind possessed by the equation
5. Reduction of the differential equation to final typical forms, valid in the vicinity of an accidental singularity of the second kind
6. The character of the integrals possessed by the respective reduced forms of the original equation in the vicinity of the accidental singularity of the second kind
7. Effect, upon the integral, of essential singularities of the equation
8. Branch-points of an equation of the first order and any degree, as determined by the equation: singular and particular solutions
9. Differential equations of the first order having their integrals free from parametric branch-points
10. Equations of first order with uniform integrals, and with algebraical integrals.
