1991 Mathematics Subject Classification

This is version 2.1 (April 1996) of a hypertext version of the MSC, prepared by Chris Eilbeck of Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. If you have any comments regarding this implementation, please email the author (chris@ma.hw.ac.uk), quoting the version number. And in case you're wondering, he didn't type in all the 2647 hyperlinks himself, he wrote a Perl programme to process the index automatically. Version 2.1 corrects a bug in 2.0 where some links of the form "-XX" were incorrectly written as "-xx".

New to version 2 is a Key word search facility. Comments welcome!

Those readers situated in North America may find it quicker to use the version at http://e-math.ams.org/msc/, though currently this site is running version 1.0. There is also a version (as yet without the key word search) at Karlsruhe at http://www.zblmath.fiz-karlsruhe.de/class/MSC91/.

If you want to install a local version on your own machine, a tarred and compressed version (143615 bytes) of version 1.1 (no key word search) is available at http://www.ma.hw.ac.uk/~chris/mr-html.tar.Z, though please inform the author so he can let you know of any updates.

The original plain text and TeX versions of the MSC are available.

An introduction to the current (1991) MSC, and instructions on how to use it, are available.

Readers new to the MSC should note that it is only a tool to find the Mathematical Review Classification number of a specified area of mathematics, useful for journal editors and authors submitting papers where this number is required. It does not provide links with the contents of Mathematical Reviews or with any other information on these subject areas.
