Handbook of Writing for the Mathematical Sciences provides advice on all aspects of scientific writing, with a particular focus on writing mathematics. Its readable style and handy format, coupled with an extensive bibliography and comprehensive index, make it useful for everyone from undergraduates to seasoned professionals.

This third edition revises, updates, and expands the best-selling second edition to reflect modern writing and publishing practices and builds on the author's extensive experience in writing and speaking about mathematics.

Key features are
coverage of fundamentals of writing, including English usage, revising a draft, and writing when your first language is not English;
thorough treatment of mathematical writing, including how to choose notation, how to choose between words and symbols, and how to format equations;
many tips for exploiting LaTeX and BibTeX;
advice on how to write and publish a paper, covering the entire publication process; and
anecdotes, quotes, and unusual facts that enliven the presentation.
