The transformer that provides electricity to the AMS building in Providence went down on Sunday, April 22. The restoration of our email, website, AMS Bookstore and other systems is almost complete. We are currently running on a generator but overnight a new transformer should be hooked up and (fingers crossed) we should be fine by 8:00 (EDT) Wednesday morning. This issue has affected selected phones, which should be repaired by the end of today. No email was lost, although the accumulated messages are only just now being delivered so you should expect some delay.
Thanks for your patience.
The AMS Book Program began with our Colloquium series, which has its roots in the famous 1894 lectures of Felix Klein. Mathematical Surveys followed, as well as conference proceedings, volumes from summer workshops, and regular translations, especially from Russian. In the early 1990s, the AMS began adding additional monograph and copublication series (including Graduate Studies in Mathematics, Student Mathematical Library, Clay Mathematics, and Courant Lecture Notes). Since then, our list has grown to include additional series and an increasing number of books in general interest and recreational mathematics.
The AMS Book Program serves the mathematical community by publishing books that further mathematical research, awareness, education, and the profession while generating resources that support other Society programs and activities. As a professional society of mathematicians and one of the world’s leading publishers of mathematical literature, we publish books that meet the highest standards for their content and production.
