LTCC Advanced Mathematical Series

 

The LTCC Advanced Mathematics Series is the first to provide advanced introductions to mathematical science topics to advanced students of mathematics. The concise books introduce research students to new areas of mathematical sciences research — some of obvious relevance to their research, but most where the potential relevance is less transparent. They therefore support readers in broadening their mathematical knowledge outside of their immediate research area.


The volumes can be used as a Masters or advanced level teaching support or as a reference handbook for PhD students outside the classroom. The series is published by World Scientific and can be purchased from their website here.
