A separation is the symbolic representation of a product of monomial symmetric functions.

Which is satisfied by every symmetric fraction whose partition contains no unit (called by Cayley non-unitary symmetric functions), is of particular importance in algebraic theories.

The theories of determinants and of symmetric functions and of the algebra of differential operations have an important bearing upon this comparatively new branch of mathematics.

A skew symmetric determinant has a,.

Now by the theory of symmetric functions, any symmetric functions of the mn values which satisfy the two equations, can be expressed in terms of the coefficient of those equations.

P operators D upon a monomial symmetric function is clear.

When a skew symmetric determinant is of even degree it is a perfect square.

Application to Symmetric Function Multiplication.-An example will explain this.

There is no difficulty in expressing the resultant by the method of symmetric functions.

The name lemniscate is sometimes given to any crunodal quartic curve having only one real finite branch which is symmetric about the axis.
