The size and aim of the book has forced us to restrict ourselves
to an account of the basic facts about the method of coordinates
and its simplest applications.

In the Little Mathematics Library series we now come to Method of

Coordinates by A. S. Smogorzhevky.

The booklet deals with a fundamental method of analytical

geometry and its ability to describe geometrical figures

through equations. This method permits geometrical study

and solution of geometrical problems by algebraic means,

thus making a visual representation of complex spatial

configurations superfluous. Considerable attention has been

devoted to the question of representing geometrical figures

through equations, which is often difficult for those who

being to study the method of coordinates.

Detailed examples have been given to illustrate the

application of the method. The booklet is intended for senior school chidlren and all those interested in mathematics.

The book was translated the Russian by Ram S. Wadhwa and was

first published by Mir in 1980.
