A journal of the Swiss Mathematical Society

Published by the European Mathematical Society with the support of the Swiss Academy of Sciences and the Stiftung zur Förderung der mathematischen Wissenschaften in der Schweiz.

Elemente der Mathematik publishes survey articles and short notes about important developments in the field of mathematics; stimulating shorter communications that tackle more specialized questions; and papers that report on the latest advances in mathematics and applications in other disciplines. The journal does not focus on basic research. Rather, its articles seek to convey to a wide circle of readers - teachers, students, engineers, professionals in industry and administration - the relevance, intellectual challenge and vitality of mathematics today. The Problems Section, covering a diverse range of exercises of varying degrees of difficulty, encourages an active grappling with mathematical problems. The journal's books and software reviews are additional features that serve to keep readers attuned to what is new and exciting on all mathematical fronts.

Elemente der Mathematik publishes articles and short notes in English, German, French and Italian.

This journal adheres to the EMS Code of Practice.
