Some Mathematics Books By Women

David Eppstein, on Mathstodon (the mathematics-themed Mastodon instance), offered a nice essay for people looking for more mathematics reading. It’s a collection of mathematics books written by women.

The post is a collection of titles and brief descriptions. Some of them are general-interest books, such as one about the Inca system of knotted strings for recording numbers, or about how non-Euclidean geometries work. Others are textbooks or histories or biographies. And some are research monographs or other highly specialized work.

It’s a follow-up to a similar list published in 2020, though that earlier one focused on more recently published books.

I’ve found several that I intend to borrow from the library; you might have similar good fortune.
