The mathematics list encompasses pure and applied mathematics; the history, philosophy, and foundations of mathematics; and the intersection of mathematics with the sciences, the arts, and society. Grounded in the strong intellectual tradition of the Annals of Mathematics Studies, these books contribute to a large and diverse body of mathematical knowledge.
Areas of strength include analysis, geometry, optimization, complex systems, and mathematical data science. The list also highlights mathematics across scholarly disciplines, particularly within the natural sciences and the arts. Guided by a focus on quality, accessibility, and the unconventional, these books reflect and amplify the central role of mathematics in society.
