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.
