Classical Topics in Mathematics

The Classical Topics in Mathematics series, published by Higher Education Press, presents classic books that have withstood the test of time, all written by leading experts. The first volumes of this series consist of an annotated version of Klein’s masterpiece Lectures on the icosahedron and the solution of equations of the fifth degree, and the first English translation of Klein and Fricke’s four volumes on modular functions and automorphic functions. All books in the series reflect Klein’s vision of the grand unity of mathematics.
