Transfinite induction as a research method of analysis
Beckenbach, Edwin F.
Doctor of Philosophy
This thesis is based on notes taken by the author during the course of a series of lectures presented in the spring of 1929 by Florin Vasilesco, Visiting Lecturer in Mathematics at The Rice Institute. An effort has been made to preserve the viewpoint of the lecturer. The proofs also are largely the ones which he presented, though there are some few changes which the author deemed desirable.
