Mathematics and Statistics
As one of the largest and most comprehensive mathematics collections in the country, we strive to collect all significant mathematical and statistical work, with a focus on:
- mathematical analysis
- number theory
- mathematical statistics and probability
- advanced algebra including group theory, modern geometry, algebraic geometry and topology
- history of mathematics
We maintain a collection in applied mathematics, actuarial mathematics, recreational mathematics, and works on mathematics education to support the research and teaching needs of the departments of Mathematics and Statistics.

History of the collection
An early digitization project of approximately 1,000 historical books were scanned from the collection and made available at the University of Michigan Historical Mathematics Collection.
