1 Interdisciplinary textbooks
and teaching materials


The border line between textbooks and scholarly monographs is not always clear. We list here such books where there are some indications that the works are written (partly or fully) with educational purposes: these are texts, guides, problem-books, or other teaching materials. Since this intention is not always clear from the titles of books, we pay a special attention to subtitles, series titles, the detailed data of the publishers, and even remarks in the prefaces. In the case of some non-English books, not only the titles, but also other bibliographic data are translated into English. In the case of names of institutions I try to give the official translation <with remarks that give further information or alternative translations that are closer to the original>. Occasionally, there are notes that explain the intention of the author [these are in brackets at end of the item].

1.1 Interdisciplinary works in a broad sense
