PROCEEDINGS

OF THE

EDINBURGH MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY.

FIRST SESSION, 1883.

The EDINBURGH MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY owes its origin to the suggestion of the late Mr A. Y. FRASER, at that time one of the mathematical masters in George Watson's College, Edinburgh. With him were closely associated Mr A. J. G. BARCLAY, now of Glasgow High School, and Dr C. G. KNOTT of the University of Edinburgh. The following is the circular which they issued to those persons throughout the kingdom whom they deemed likely to take an interest in such a Society:

DEAR SIR,

EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY,
January 23, 1883.

We, the undersigned, beg to call your attention to the following proposal, in the hope that you will find it in your power to give it your support:

It is proposed to establish, primarily in connection with the University, a Society for the mutual improvement of its members in the Mathematical Sciences, pure and applied.
