About this series
The Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series (SUMS) is a series designed for undergraduates in mathematics and the sciences worldwide. From core foundational material to final year topics, SUMS books take a fresh and modern approach. Textual explanations are supported by a wealth of examples, problems and fully-worked solutions, with particular attention paid to universal areas of difficulty. These practical and concise texts are designed for a one- or two-semester course but the self-study approach makes them ideal for independent use.
