The MAA New Mathematical Library (NML)

The publisher, the Mathematical Association of America, wrote of the creation of this library when they introduced it in Volume 1: “The New Mathematical Library (NML) was begun in 1961 by the School Mathematics Study Group to make available to high school students short expository books on various topics not usually covered in the high school syllabus. In a decade the NML matured into a steadily growing series of some twenty titles of interest not only to the originally intended audience, but to college students and teachers at all levels. Previously published by Random House and L. W. Singer, the NML became a publication series of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) in 1975. Under the auspices of the MAAA the NML will continue to grow and will remain dedicated to its original and expanded purposes.”

    "Number theory has been instrumental in introducing many of the most distinguished mathematicians, past and present, to the charms and mysteries of mathematical research. The purpose of this simple little guide will have been achieved if it should lead some of its readers to appreciate why the properties of numbers can be so fascinating. It would be better still if it would induce you to try to find some number relations of your own; new curiosities devised by young people turn up every year." — From the back cover

    "This book deals with the number system, one of the basic structures in mathematics. It is concerned especially with ways of classifying numbers into various categories; for example, it provides some criteria for deciding if a given number is rational (i.e., representable as a common fraction) or irrational, if it is algebraic or transcendental." — From the back cover
