1991 Mathematics Subject Classification
Search the 1991 MSC
You can search the MSC by text or classification code.
The search program is based on one developed by Chris Eilbeck of Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.
- The search is not case-sensitive.
- The Boolean operator, Or, is the default between words within a keyword box; adjacency is not assumed.
- To And search terms, enter text into the two keyword boxes.
- For exact word matches, use quotes and spaces. For example, for
linear but not nonlinear, enter " linear ".
- For exact phrase matches, use quotes, e.g. "optimal control".
- Wildcards are not allowed.
The Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) is a system used to
categorize items covered by Mathematical Reviews and Zentralblatt
für Mathematik. The current classification system has been used
since 1991 (a few minor changes and
additions were made in 1995). The MSC is broken down into over 5,000
two-, three-, and five-digit classifications, each corresponding to a
discipline of mathematics (e.g., 62 = Statistics; 62N = Engineering
statistics; 62N10 = Quality control). The 1991 Mathematics Subject
Classification is being completely revised. The new classification,
MSC2000, will be
used starting in the year 2000.
