Course literature
On this page you can find the course literature for courses given at the Department of Mathematics.
Note that this page only covers courses regularly given in English. See the Swedish version of this page for the course literature for courses given in Swedish.
Some books may be available as e-books via Stockholm University Library.
Degree projects
The course literature for all degree projects is based on scientific publications and reports within the relevant field found by the student through literature search, and literature distributed by the supervisor.
Mathematics
Here you can find the course literature for the courses in mathematics, first and second cycle. For some courses given jointly with KTH, we refer to information about course literature on KTH's web. You can see in the course catalogue if a course is given jointly with KTH.
