- In the theory of forms we seek functions of the coefficients and variables of the original
**quantic**which, save as to a power of the modulus of transformation, are equal to the like functions of the coefficients and variables of the transformed**quantic**. We may have such a function which does not involve the variables, viz. - Instead of a single
**quantic**we may have several f(ao, a1, a2...; x1, x2), 4 (b o, b1, b2,...; x1, x2), ... - If the form, sometimes termed a
**quantic**, be equated to zero the n+I coefficients are equivalent to but n, since one can be made unity by division and the equation is to be regarded as one for the determination of the ratio of the variables. - If the variables of the
