Advances in Mathematics is a mathematics journal publishing research on pure mathematics. It was founded in 1961 by Gian-Carlo Rota.[1] The journal currently publishes 18 issues each year, in three volumes.

At the origin, the journal aimed at publishing articles addressed to a broader mathematical community, and not only to mathematicians in the author's field. Herbert Busemann writes, in the preface of the first issue,[2] "The need for expository articles addressing either all mathematicians or only those in somewhat related fields has long been felt, but little has been done outside of the USSR. The serial publication Advances in Mathematics was created in response to this demand."
