Key features:

* Complete and unabridged presentation with recent advances and additional notes

* Annotations by the translators provide insights into the nature of science and mathematics in the late 19th century

* Each volume interweaves theory and applications

The Theory of the Top was originally presented by Felix Klein as an 1895 lecture at Göttingen University that was broadened in scope and clarified as a result of collaboration with Arnold Sommerfeld. Graduate students and researchers interested in theoretical and applied mechanics will find this a thorough and insightful account. Other volumes in this series include Introduction to the Kinematics and Kinetics of the Top, Perturbations: Astronomical and Geophysical Applications, and Technical Applications of the Theory of the Top.

The problems to be treated belong mainly to the classical matherhatical literature, as shown by their connection with the names of Laplace, Fourier, Green, Gauss, Riemann, and William Thomson. In order to show that these methods are adequate to deal with actual problems, we treat the propagation of radio waves in some detail in Chapter VI.
