About this series
CMS Books in Mathematics is a collection of graduate level textbooks and monographs published in cooperation with the Canadian Mathematical Society since 1999. This series offers authors the joint advantage of publishing with a major mathematical society and with a leading academic publishing company. The series is edited by Karl Dilcher and Keith Taylor. The more than 20 titles already in print cover such diverse areas as combinatorics, number theory, optimization, dynamical systems and the history of mathematics, to name a few. Books in this series will appeal to all mathematicians, whether pure or applied, whether students or researchers.
