The proposed revision of the 1991 edition of the Mathematics Subject Classification, MSC2000, was officially announced at the upcoming International Congress of Mathematicians in Berlin (August 24, 1998). MSC2000 is a collaborative effort between the editors of Mathematical Review
and Zentralblatt fur Mathematik
, two journals that review mathematics literature. Mathematical Reviews
is a publication of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) (discussed in the July 14, 1995 issue of the Scout Report
). The 1991 edition of the MSC (linked to from the MSC2000 site) contains "over 5,000 two-, three-, and five-digit classifications, each corresponding to a discipline of mathematics." The MSC2000 classification scheme is browseable; the 1991 edition has both browse and search functionality. Application of the new classification scheme will begin in the year 2000.
