概要 This monograph intends to give a general survey of the different branches of the geometry of linear displacements which so far have received attention', The material on this new type of differential g...eometry has grown so rapidly in re cent years that it is impossible, not only to be complete, but even to do justice to the work of the different authors, so that a selection had to be made, We hope, however, that enough territory is covered to enable the reader to understand the present state of the theory in the essential points, The author wishes to thank several mathematicians who have helped hirn with remarks and suggestions; especially Dr. J. A. SCHOUTEN of Delft and Dr. N. HANSEN BALL of Princeton. Cambridge, Mass., October 1933. D. J. STRUIK. Contents. Page Introduction .... . I. Algebra ..... . 5 1. Vectors and tensors in E n 5 2.
