PoliTO Springer Series
12 Volumes | 2016 - 2021


Springer, in cooperation with Politecnico di Torino, publishes the PoliTO Springer Series. This co-branded series of publications includes works by authors and volume editors mainly affiliated with Politecnico di Torino and covers academic and professional topics in the following areas: Mathematics and Statistics, Chemistry and Physical Sciences, Computer Science, All fields of Engineering. Interdisciplinary contributions combining the above areas are also welcome. The series will consist of lecture notes, research monographs, and briefs. Lectures notes are meant to provide quick information on research advances and may be based e.g. on summer schools or intensive courses on topics of current research, while SpringerBriefs are intended as concise summaries of cutting-edge research and its practical applications. The PoliTO Springer Series will promote international authorship, and addresses a global readership of scholars, students, researchers, professionals and policymakers.
