The reader will find Weinstock’s end-of-chapter problems more interesting and exciting but Elsgole’s are not bad. When the book was first published, computers were not being used as they are today, and the current strategy in solving variational problems is usually to use some sort of numerical software packages.

But, as it turned out, a long teaching career at Stanford, Notre Dame, and finally Oberlin ensued, concluding in after about fifty years.
