Susannah ShoemakerEditor (Mathematics & Engineering)
I acquire scholarly and trade books in mathematics and electrical engineering. I look for books that offer new perspectives: monographs on the cutting edge; textbooks that fill new niches; and trade books that engage readers on mathematical and human levels alike. Topics span both pure and applied mathematics and include control theory, signal processing, and information theory. Of particular interest are books that explore the relationship between mathematics and other disciplines, including the arts, the humanities, and the physical sciences.
The mathematics list at Princeton University Press is anchored by the Annals of Mathematics Studies series as well as the Press’s innovative popular math titles, which include George Polya’s How to Solve It, Paul Nahin’s Dr. Euler’s Fabulous Formula, and Lynn Gamwell’s Mathematics and Art. I seek to build on this strong intellectual and creative tradition with books that will shape the future of the mathematical sciences. I welcome submissions from authors and agents who are likewise committed to accessible, high-quality, imaginative books.
