§ 9. Cayley

Arthur Cayley, likewise, spent the bulk of his life at Cambridge, first as a student and then as a professor. He discussed many subjects in pure mathematics, his most notable researches dealing with the general theory of curves and surfaces in analytical geometry, with the theory of invariants in higher algebra, and, in ten classical memoirs, with binary and ternary forms. He also wrote at length on elliptic functions, but treated it from Jacobi’s point of view; and, in consequence of Weierstrass’s work, much of this is out of date.
