*Nicholas J. Higham*

A publication of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

The subject of mathematical writing is infused with life once
again by Nick Higham. He follows up his successful

This second edition is completely revised, making use of feedback from readers as well as Higham's own large file of ideas based on his experiences in reading, writing, editing, examining, and supervising theses.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in writing for the mathematical sciences.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

Any professional mathematician (whether in the corporate world or in academe) who writes, and therefore puts math into print, should have this handbook on the reference shelf … The information needed by writers, editors, and their assistants to prepare clear, accurate, and understandable mathematical material is contained in this book.

-- Barbara A. Simmons, Technical Communication

Higham's's handbook is to the technical writer what *The
Elements of Style* by Strunk and White is to the liberal arts
writer. I've reached for *The Elements of Style* many times and
expect to reach for *Handbook of Writing for the Mathematical
Sciences* even more frequently.
