The LMS Student Texts series, established in 1983 and published by Cambridge University Press, complements the LMS Lecture Notes Series with textbooks aimed at advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students. It covers the whole range of pure mathematics, as well as topics in applied mathematics and mathematical physics that involve a substantial use of modern mathematical methods. Topics not of a standard nature though of current interest are also covered by volumes in this series. 

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 edited notes from suitable research schools are also considered. To date, the series contains over 100 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.

For authors: Proposals may be submitted to the Editor, Ian Leary, or alternatively Roger Astley and Holly Paveling of Cambridge University Press, who are also happy to give advice.

LMS Member discount: LMS members are entitled to a 25% discount when purchasing volumes in the series. An online discount code is regularly communicated as part of the monthly email update to members.
