For the last five and a half years I have been editing and writing The Princeton Companion to Applied Mathematics. I’m pleased to announce that the project is at the final stage, with the PDF file delivered to Princeton University Press and the book scheduled for publication in September 2015.
Over the coming months I will produce a variety of posts on this blog about the book. The book also has a Twitter feed, @ThePCAM, which will contain relevant news and links.
