Sir William Rowan Hamilton (1805-1865): Mathematical Papers

This collection consists of the mathematical papers of Sir William Rowan Hamilton published during his lifetime, transcribed and edited by David R. Wilkins. With one exception, these papers are available here in an edition based on the original published text. (The exception is the paper Remarques de M. Hamilton, Directeur de l'Observatoire de Dublin, sur un Mémoire de M. Plana inséré dans le Tome VII de la Correspondance Math.)

Hamilton's mathematical papers have also been re-published in the four volumes of The Mathematical Papers of Sir William Rowan Hamilton, edited for the Royal Irish Academy by J. L. Synge, A. W. Conway, A. J. McConnell, H. Halberstam, R. E. Ingram and B. K. P. Scaife, and published by Cambridge University Press. (Volume 4 was published by Cambridge University Press in December 2000.) These volumes also include a substantial quantity of previously unpublished papers and manuscripts of Hamilton.
