The Carus Mathematical Monographs is a monograph series published by the Mathematical Association of America.[1] Books in this series are intended to appeal to a wide range of readers in mathematics and science.

Scope and audience

While the books are intended to cover nontrivial material, the emphasis is on exposition and clear communication rather than novel results and a systematic Bourbaki-style presentation. The webpage for the series states:

The exposition of mathematical subjects that the monographs contain are set forth in a manner comprehensible not only to teachers and students specializing in mathematics, but also to scientific workers in other fields. More generally, the monographs are intended for the wide circle of thoughtful people familiar with basic graduate or advanced undergraduate mathematics encountered in the study of mathematics itself or in the context of related disciplines who wish to extend their knowledge without prolonged and critical study of the mathematical journals and treatises.[2]

Many of the books in the series have become classics in the genre of general mathematical exposition.
