Undergraduate Texts In Mathematics Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics Mathematics (UTM) is a series of undergraduatelevel textbooks in mathematics published by SpringerVerlag. The books in this series, like the other SpringerVerlag SpringerVerlag mathematics series, are small yellow books of a standard size. The books in this series tend to be written at a more elementary level than the similar Graduate Texts in Mathematics Mathematics series, although there is a fair amount of overlap between the two series in terms of material covered and difficulty level. There is no SpringerVerlag SpringerVerlag numbering of the books like in the Graduate Texts in Mathematics Mathematics series. The books are numbered here by year of publication.

Vera T. Sós Vera T. Sós Vera T. Sós (born September 11, 1930) is a Hungarian mathematician, specializing in number theory and combinatorics. She was a student and close collaborator of both Paul Erdős Paul Erdős and Alfréd Rényi. She also collaborated frequently with her husband Pál Turán, the analyst, number theorist, and combinatorist (the letter T in her name stands for Turán[1]). Until 1987, she worked at the Department of Analysis at the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. Since then, she has been employed by the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics.[2] She was elected a corresponding member (1985), member (1990) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.[3] In 1997, Sós was awarded the Széchenyi Prize.

Digital Object Identifier In computing, a Digital Object Identifier or DOI is a persistent identifier or handle used to uniquely identify objects, standardized by the International Organization for Standardization International Organization for Standardization (ISO).[1] An implementation of the Handle System,[2][3] DOIs are in wide use mainly to identify academic, professional, and government information, such as journal articles, research reports and data sets, and official publications though they also have been used to identify other types of information resources, such as commercial videos. A DOI aims to be "resolvable", usually to some form of access to the information object to which the DOI refers. This is achieved by binding the DOI to metadata about the object, such as a URL, indicating where the object can be found. Thus, by being actionable and interoperable, a DOI differs from identifiers such as ISBNs and ISRCs which aim only to uniquely identify their referents [...More...]  "Digital Object Identifier" on: Wikipedia Yahoo Parouse
