Mathematics Subject Classification Scheme Revision

To the Mathematical Community:

The editors of Mathematical Reviews and Zentralblatt für Mathematik have initiated the process of revising the 1991 Mathematics Subject Classification, which is used by both journals as their classification system. The editors do not plan a radical revision of the present 1991 system, but it is clear that some changes will be needed in order to accommodate recent developments in mathematical research.

It will be necessary to have this revision completed by the end of 1998 so that it can begin to be used in Current Mathematical Publications in mid 1999, and in Mathematical Reviews and Zentralblatt für Mathematik beginning in 2000.

We hereby solicit comments and suggestions from the mathematical community to be considered in this revision process. These should be submitted by June, 1997. The preferred method of communication is by e-mail:

msc2000@ams.org
or
msc2000@zblmath.fiz-karlsruhe.de

(Comments and suggestions may also be sent to either one of us at the addresses given below.) We are eager that research mathematicians and scholars have input in this revision process as soon as possible.

Additional information as well as copies of the 1991 Mathematics Subject Classification Scheme may be found at

Copies can also be found in the most recent index issues of Mathematical Reviews and Zentralblatt für Mathematik.
