Annotated Bibliography of Expository Writing in the Mathematical Sciences.
Gaffney, Matthew P.; And Others
The purpose of this document is to facilitate access to the substantial but widely scattered expository literature of the mathematical sciences. Over 1100 articles, and a few books of general interest, are listed. It is felt that the bibliography can be used by teachers to supplement their (or their students') background in standard undergraduate courses. The following major subject classifications are used: (1) General; (2) Foundations; (3) Algebra; (4) Analysis; (5) Geometry; (6) Statistics and Computing; and (7) Applications. The entries in this document are arranged and cross-referenced by subject, and then listed again by author to provide a detailed index. Within each subject area, articles are grouped according to level, and within each level they are arranged alphabetically. The four levels of technical sophistication used are general, elementary, advanced, and research. While some items do not properly fit into any of these four categories, levels are always assigned in order to provide some clue as to the difficulty of the material. (MP)
