Call for Authors – Pure and Applied Mathematics Series
Mathematical sciences work is becoming an increasingly integral and essential component of a growing array of areas of investigation in biology, medicine, social sciences, business, advanced design, climate, finance, advanced materials, and many more. This work involves the integration of mathematics, statistics, and computation in the broadest sense and the interplay of these areas with areas of potential application. All of these activities are crucial to economic growth, national competitiveness, and national security, and this fact should inform both the nature and scale of funding for the mathematical sciences as a whole.

The mathematical sciences today span an enormous and unprecedented intellectual bandwidth, with research advances encompassing the spectrum from pure theory to myriad applications. With definitions of what constitutes a ‘mathematician’ changing as technological advance dictates, mathematics is today intrinsic to the work of such diverse professionals as computer scientists, systems biologists, materials engineers and economists. Rare is the discipline untouched by mathematics or unencumbered by a debt to it.
Revitalizing the Pure and Applied Mathematics series is Elsevier’s response to this unprecedented explosion of literature. Inheriting its title, lineage, and edition base from the highly prestigious and extraordinarily diverse Academic Press series of 142 volumes (discontinued in 2004), series titles are intended to provide a new centerpiece of the books presence in math at Elsevier, as well as an umbrella for non-series projects from which the whole portfolio can leap forward.
Written by leading researchers under the editorship of Dominique Perrin, the series provides superior quality, peerless depth and exhaustive breadth of coverage, advocating solutions to challenging contemporary problems using the symbolic language and concepts of differential equations, calculus, linear algebra, differential geometry, graph theory combinatorics, number theory, the calculus of variations, probability theory, and other branches of mathematics.
The series is intended to provide systematic reviews of many areas of pure math which have application in the real world, particularly in the areas of modelling, computational science, mathematical biology, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, neuroscience, physics and other disciplines at the research and educational levels.
For prospective authors interested in publishing their work in MSE, please download a New Book Proposal Form and submit, together with copies of your CVs, and a sample chapter of 15-25 pages (if available), to Graham Nisbet (G.Nisbet@elsevier.com).

Mathematics & Statistics
It has been said that “math is the language of science,” a common basis for understanding the world around us, no matter where in the world we are. From the most rudimentary measurements to the most sophisticated computational modeling, mathematics and statistical analysis are fundamental not only to pure scientific investigation, but to business, financial markets, health care, and more. In addition to providing core textbooks in algebra, calculus, analysis, probability, and statistics (including software such as R and BUGS), we publish valuable applied math reference content for professionals and researchers in all areas of physical and life science, finance, economics, engineering, and computing.
