Noun

- plural form of
*quantic*

- Under the general heading "Algebra and Theory of Numbers" occur the subheadings "Elements of Algebra," with the topics rational polynomials, permutations, &c., partitions, probabilities; "Linear Substitutions," with the topics determinants, &c., linear substitutions, general theory of
**quantics**; "Theory of Algebraic Equations," with the topics existence of roots, separation of and approximation to, theory of Galois, &c. "Theory of Numbers," with the topics congruences, quadratic residues, prime numbers, particular irrational and transcendental numbers. - This notion is fundamental in the present theory because we will find that one of the most valuable artifices for finding invariants of a single quantic is first to find simultaneous invariants of several different
**quantics**, and subsequently to make all the**quantics**identical. - In addition, and transform each pair to a new pair by substitutions, having the same coefficients a ll, a12, a 21, a 22 and arrive at functions of the original coefficients and variables (of one or more
**quantics**) which possess the abovedefinied invariant property. - Such
**quantics**have been termed by Cayley multipartite. - +a"aa"-1 have been much studied by Sylvester, Hammond, Hilbert and Elliott (Elliott, Algebra of
