A Big List of Interesting Mathematics Books Released in 2011


The following is a list of 46 interesting math books that were released in 2011.

As some of you know, I run a service called Any New Books?, which emails you a list of new books that are related to the categories of your choice each week. For the most part I pulled this list from the weekly staff picks there throughout this past year, just in time for your Christmas shopping. ;-)

The books are ordered by their current sale rank on Amazon (from the most popular to the least popular at the moment, with hardcovers first). I hope this page will help you discover a few titles you may have not have noticed yet.

    Thanks for the posting! I’m hoping to use some gift cards soon. I find in interesting at how many titles relate to statistics.

  3. John says:

    This is a great math blog. I enjoy occasionally checking in on this, but more math books had to have been published than just those listed. Many programming (hundreds and hundreds) were published I know that, for sure.
