    Committee Charge
    1/31/2011To publish a broad range of books including biographies, accessible expositions of old or new mathematical ideas, reprints and revisions of excellent out-of-print books, popular works, and other monographs of high interest that will appeal to a broad range of readers, including students and teachers of mathematics, mathematical amateurs, and researchers.

    Spectrum Books will consist of wide-ranging, high-quality volumes that complement existing series and round out the Association's overall book publishing program. Proposed projects include biographies, popular expositions of old and new ideas in the mathematical sciences, elementary problem books, volumes dealing with historical topics, and books that focus on the teaching of mathematics. Occasional reprints of outstanding out-of-print books might also become Spectrum volumes.

    This committee was formed in 1987.
