About this series
SpringerBriefs are characterized in general by their size (50–125 pages) and fast production time (2–3 months compared to 6 months for a monograph).
Briefs are available in print but are intended as a primarily electronic publication to be included in Springer's e-book package.
Typical works might include:
- An extended survey of a field
- A link between new research papers published in journal articles
- A presentation of core concepts that doctoral students must understand in order to make independent contributions
- Lecture notes making a specialist topic accessible for non-specialist readers.
SpringerBriefs in Mathematical Physics showcase, in a compact format, topics of current relevance in the field of mathematical physics. Published titles will encompass all areas of theoretical and mathematical physics. This series is intended for mathematicians, physicists, and other scientists, as well as doctoral students in related areas.
