The Analytical Society: Mathematics at Cambridge University in the Early Nineteenth Century. Abstract (summary): The thesis is a study of the Analytical Society () of Cambridge University. Its purpose is to present a detailed history of the Society, of which little has previously been known, in order to obtain an insight into the reasons for the transition in Cambridge mathematics in the early nineteenth by: The Analytical Society, like the renewal of Cambridge mathematics, was a manifestation of a new attitude toward mathematics and science iii early 19th-century England, one which was to mark a new stage in the process of their by: Aspects of a Fundamental Change the Early Nineteenth Century.

The latter system came into being in the 18th century as an invention of Sir Isaac Newton, and was in use throughout Great Britain for political rather than. The Society was founded in over a Sunday morning breakfast. Its membership originally consisted of a group of Cambridge students led by Robert Woodhouse.
