Mathematics of Planet Earth


Springer’s Mathematics of Planet Earth collection provides a variety of well-written books of a variety of levels and styles, highlighting the fundamental role played by mathematics in a huge range of planetary contexts on a global scale. Climate, ecology, sustainability, public health, diseases and epidemics, management of resources and risk analysis are important elements. The mathematical sciences play a key role in these and many other processes relevant to Planet Earth, both as a fundamental discipline and as a key component of cross-disciplinary research. This creates the need, both in education and research, for books that are introductory to and abreast of these developments.

Springer’s MoPE series will provide a variety of such books, including monographs, textbooks and briefs suitable for users of mathematics, mathematicians doing research in related applications, and students interested in how mathematics interacts with the world around us.
The series welcomes submissions on any topic of current relevance to the international Mathematics of Planet Earth effort, and particularly encourages surveys, tutorials and shorter communications in a lively tutorial style, offering a clear exposition of broad appeal.
