The LMS has re-published this classic text which had been out of print for some years. Orders may be placed via major on-line book stores. Find out more…
The LMS collaborates with Cambridge University Press to produce two book series: the 'Lecture Notes' and the 'Student Texts'. Volumes in the 'Monographs' series will continue to be published into 2013, but this series has ceased to accept new book submissions. Since October 2012 the 'History of Mathematics' series is published by the American Mathematical Society alone.
Discounts are given to members of the LMS purchasing volumes in any of these four series for their own personal use. Order directly from the publisher (not the LMS), stating that you are a member of the Society.
LMS Lecture Notes
Published by Cambridge University Press
The Series was founded in 1968 by the Society and Cambridge University Press. Most volumes are short monographs giving authoritative accounts of the present state of knowledge on a topic of general interest. Records of lectures and seminars on advanced topics in mathematics held internationally are also published.
The Series accepts some conference proceedings, especially those of an instructional nature and other collective works with similar aims. In general the series is relaxed and informal but places importance on the quality of exposition. To date over 360 volumes have appeared.
The Editor is Miles Reid (University of Warwick) and the Editorial Advisers are B J Green, D R Heath-Brown, R A M Rouquier, J T Stafford and E Süli. Intending authors may also contact Roger Astley (Cambridge University Press).
LMS Student Texts
Published by Cambridge University Press
The LMS Student Texts series, established in 1983 and published by Cambridge University Press, complements the LMS Lecture Notes Series with textbooks of an expository nature aimed at advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. It aims to offer introductions to areas where there is an absence of well-established exposition, providing students with access to new and exciting ideas as they emerge.
Ideally a student text should be accessible to a first year research student working alone. Texts are frequently based on graduate courses given by the authors. Translations of successful books and proceedings of suitable instructional conferences are also considered. To date, the series contains over 70 titles.
Camera-ready copy or TeX files are usually provided by the author and books are 150–400 pages in length. The benefits of low-cost production are passed on to purchasers via modest pricing of the soft-cover versions.
The Honorary Editor is David Benson (Aberdeen) and the Editorial Advisers are A M Etheridge, M W Liebeck, J R Partington, R M Roberts, U L Tillmann and J F Toland. Alternatively, proposals may be submitted via Roger Astley of Cambridge University Press, who is also happy to give advice.
Published by Princeton University Press (This series is now closed for new submissions)
The original series was founded in 1968 by the Society and Academic Press; the second series was launched by the Society and Oxford University Press in 1983. Since January 2003, the series has moved and new titles are published by Princeton University Press
The aim of this series was to publish authoritative accounts of current research in mathematics and high-quality expository works bringing the reader to the frontiers of research. Of particular interest were topics that had developed rapidly in the last ten years but that have reached a certain level of maturity. Clarity of exposition is important and each book should be accessible to those commencing work in its field.
The books are of medium length, usually 250–450 pages, and are published in an attractive hardback version.
History of Mathematics Series
Published by the American Mathematical Society
This is a special series of texts on the History of Mathematics and since October 2012 is published by the American Mathematics Society alone. The books provide interesting historical perspectives on the people and communities that have profoundly influenced the development of mathematics.
The series is particularly concerned with the history of 'modern mathematics' that is, from about 1750. The aim is to publish reasonably priced volumes of interest to the average working mathematician.
Books are published from the AMS offices at Rhode Island to a high standard of production quality, and are bound in attractive covers. To date, 34 volumes have appeared.
