References Arranged by Topic - Part I

An Index of Links and Citations Grouped by Topic


As a reference tool for those who may be interested in certain aspects of CUPM's work, we list here the references cited above, grouped by topic. Topics are arranged in an order that moves from more general and elementary to more specialized and advanced; within topics, references are listed in chronological order. (In a few cases a citation is listed twice if it fits naturally under two different topic headers.) These reference lists include reports that bear on the agenda of CUPM whether or not they were sponsored by CUPM or its various associated subcommittees. Quite a few are studies by other groups or individuals, many of whom had close ties to CUPM or MAA. All were mentioned earlier in this document.

Since many CUPM reports have been reprinted in one of three compendia, we use these abbreviations in citations:

As above, although CUPM citations refer to the original publication, most links go to the version found in the compendia rather than to an on-line copy of the original.
