Springer, the Brazilian Instituto Nacional de Matemática Pura e Aplicada (IMPA) and the Sociedade Brasileira de Matemática (SBM) announce an agreement for the publication of six Selected Works of outstanding Brazilian mathematicians. The first volume, Selected Works of Manfredo do Carmo
, is scheduled to appear in 2012. The subsequent five titles will be dedicated to the outstanding work of Leopoldo Nachbin, Djairo de Figueiredo, Ricardo Mañé, Maurício Peixoto and Jacob Palis.
The Springer series Selected Works
aims to give the international mathematical community a representative overview of the scientific work and achievements of major mathematicians from around the world.
Dr. Marcelo Viana, professor at IMPA and Vice-President of SBM said, “Mathematics in Brazil is a very young endeavor. Regular research activities and graduate student training go back less than six decades. Progress, in such a short period, has been quite remarkable, as certified by Brazil's successive promotions from Group I to Group IV in the International Mathematical Union's ranking. This was largely due to a number of leading mathematicians who, in addition to their own fundamental contributions, created ‘schools’ that raised entire research fields in Brazil to the best international standards. Through this collection, IMPA and SBM aim to highlight their scientific trajectories.”
Dr. Martin Peters, Executive Editor Mathematics at Springer, said, “Springer has been successfully working with IMPA and the Sociedade Brasileira de Matemática on both book and journal publications. We are happy to expand this valuable work with this agreement. Mathematical research in Brazil has reached a high level, and the works of Brazilian pioneers in mathematics deserve to be promoted worldwide. Springer is proud to publish this series.”Sociedade Brasileira de Matemática
