The subject of mathematical writing is infused with life once again by Nick Higham. He follows up his successful Handbook of Mathematical Writing with this much-anticipated second edition. As is Higham's style, the material is enlivened by anecdotes, unusual paper titles, and humorous quotations. This volume provides even more information on the issues you will face when writing a technical paper or talk, from choosing the right journal in which to publish to handling your references. Its overview of the entire publication process is invaluable for anyone hoping to publish in a technical journal.
This second edition is completely revised, making use of feedback from readers as well as Higham's own large file of ideas based on his experiences in reading, writing, editing, examining, and supervising theses.
Published by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. Distributed non-exclusively worldwide by the American Mathematical Society.
Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in writing for the mathematical sciences.
"Any professional mathematician (whether in the corporate world or in academe) who writes, and therefore puts math into print, should have this handbook on the reference shelf ... The information needed by writers, editors, and their assistants to prepare clear, accurate, and understandable mathematical material is contained in this book."
-- Barbara A. Simmons, Technical Communication
"Higham's's handbook is to the technical writer what The Elements of Style by Strunk and White is to the liberal arts writer. I've reached for The Elements of Style many times and expect to reach for Handbook of Writing for the Mathematical Sciences even more frequently."
-- Keith Parris, Alcatel Network Systems
