The International Research Training Group IGDK München - Graz is offering a video course on "How to write mathematics" with Professor Nick Higham of the University of Manchester, UK. 

How to write mathematics

The course, which Nick Higham prepared for his graduate students at the University of Manchester when the corona pandemic sent the universities into lockdown, gives an invaluable insight into writing project descriptions, presentations and theses in a clear and understandable manner, without unnecessary diversions. The numerous tips are based on Highams SIAM  "Handbook of Writing for the Mathematical Sciences" but are presented in a series of short videos, in which Nick Higham personally takes you through the processes needed to refine your mathematical writing.  

The "Handbook of Writing for the Mathematical Sciences" is available at the TUM MA/IN Library.
