MSRI Mathematical Circles Library

**Series Code: mcl**

Mathematical circles originated in Eastern Europe in the 1930s, spreading to Western Europe, Asia, and, eventually, to North America.

While solving problems is emphasized, the circles also pay considerable attention to mathematical ideas and techniques that are broadly helpful. The idea of teacher mathematical circles is more recent. Such circles are gatherings for elementary and secondary school teachers where they may develop effective approaches to teaching mathematics, with a particular emphasis on problem solving. In the interest of fostering a greater awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life, MSRI and the AMS are publishing books in the Mathematical Circles Library series as a service to young people, their parents and teachers, and the mathematics profession. The books in the series are suitable for leaders and participants in mathematical circles. Parents of the participants in the student circles will also find the books quite useful. The books come from several sources: translations of suitable books from Russian or Eastern European sources, books written in English for this audience, and practical books for and written by organizers of mathematical circles.

XYZ Book Series

**Series Code: xyz**

XYZ Press publications utilize competition math as the vehicle for introducing students from middle school through college to the elegance of problem-solving through a wide variety of mathematical topics and difficulty levels. Emphasis is placed on developing mathematical insight through interesting problems, many of which employ clever strategies to engage and delight the reader. Hardcover.

The MAA Studies in Mathematics series produced volumes of collected essays on a single mathematical or pedagogical theme. Example topics include Harmonic Analysis, Combinatorics, Differential Geometry, and Mathematical Economics. The essays were written at a level meant to be accessible to mathematicians, beginning graduate students and advanced undergraduates. The intention of the volumes was to provide a broadly accessible survey of current activity in the subfield. No future volumes are currently planned for this series.

AMS/MAA Textbooks

**Series Code: text**

AMS/MAA Textbooks cover all levels of the undergraduate curriculum with a focus on textbooks for upper-division students. They are written by college and university faculty and are carefully reviewed by an editorial board of teaching faculty in order to ensure superior exposition.

Anneli Lax New Mathematical Library

**Series Code: nml**

Featuring fresh approaches and broad coverage of topics especially suitable for high school and the first two years of college, the volumes in this series are an excellent source of enrichment material for teachers and students. Good mathematical reading with lively exposition.

Classroom Resource Materials

**Series Code: clrm**

This series provides supplementary material for students and their teachers—laboratory, exercises, projects, historical information, textbooks with unusual approaches for presenting mathematical ideas, career information, and much more.

Dolciani Mathematical Expositions

**Series Code: dol**

Aimed at a broad mathematical audience, books in this series present mathematical elegance and ingenuity across the entire spectrum of mathematics, especially in areas covered in the undergraduate mathematics major. Assumed levels of background range up to that of an undergraduate mathematics major.

Problem Books

**Series Code: prb**

This series will include a variety of books related to problems and problem-solving, including collections of problems from prominent mathematical competitions, collections of problems specific to particular branches of mathematics, and books on the art and practice of problem-solving.

Spectrum

**Series Code: spec**

Containing works of biography, history, popular exposition, and the relationship between math and the arts and sciences, the Spectrum volumes tend to be broadly appealing to the general mathematically interested reader. Most volumes will be accessible to anyone interested in mathematics.

The Carus Mathematical Monographs

**Series Code: car**

Expositions of mathematical subjects set forth in a manner comprehensible not only to teachers and students specializing in mathematics, but also to scientific workers in other fields. The monographs are intended for the wide circle of thoughtful people familiar with basic graduate or advanced undergraduate mathematics, encountered in the study of mathematics itself, or in the context of related disciplines, who wish to extend their knowledge without prolonged and critical study of the mathematical journals and treatises.
