What version or edition is this?
This is the 2nd edition with a publication date of 3/16/2016.
What is included with this book?
This is a re-issue of the classic book from H. F. Baker. In two parts, this book first deals with the theory of hyperelliptic functions of two variables, and then with the reduction of the theory of general multiply-periodic functions to the theory of algebraic functions. It provides an elementary and self-contained introduction to many of the leading ideas in the theory of multiply periodic functions, whilst illuminating the importance of this theory in analytical geometry.
