When I was a student at McGill I loved looking at the latest Springer texts in the now-nonexistant Rosenthall library. So, I thought that I'd list some of the cool looking titles that have come out in 2018:

  1. Walter Dittrick, Reassessing Riemann's Paper: This book is an analysis of Riemann's paper "On the Number of Primes Less Than a Given Magnitude", and could be a great historical starting point into the subject
  2. Andreas Hinz, Sandi Klavžar, and Ciril Petr, The Tower of Hanoi – Myths and Maths: Looks like a fun recreational math book about the Tower of Hanoi game
  3. Wojciech Chachólski, Tobias Dyckerhoff, John Greenlees, Greg Stevenson, Building Bridges Between Algebra and Topology: It contains notes from four different mini-lectures on Hall algebras, triangulated categories, homotopy invariant commutative algebra, and idempotent symmetries!
  4. Karin Erdmann, Thorsten Holm, Algebras and Representation Theory: Nice-looking text on representation theory. Has classical things like the Artin-Wedderburn theorem and more modern topics like quivers
  5. V. Lakshmibai, Justin Brown, Flag Varieties: An introduction to flag varieties, assuming some background in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry
  6. Nicolas Privault, Understanding Markov Chains
  7. Masao Jinzenji, Classical Mirror Symmetry
  8. Berthé, Michel Rigo (editors), Sequences, Groups, and Number Theory: Now this looks interesting! It is a curious volume of lectures on the interactions between words (as in formal languages and presented groups), number theory, and dynamical systems
  9. Ibrahim Assem, Sonia Trepode (editors), Homological Methods, Representation Theory, and Cluster Algebras: A series of lectures from CRM minicourses

*N.B. I do not work for Springer and I do not get compensated for posting these links. I just think they look cool.
