This is a COMPLETE bibliography of publications for the decade 1990–1999 in the American Mathematical Society journals Mathematics of Computation (ISSN 0025-5718 (paper), ISSN 1088-6842 (electronic), CODEN MCMPAF), which began publishing in January 1960, as the successor to Mathematical Tables and Other Aids to Computation (ISSN 0891-6837, CODEN MTTCAS) (October 1943 – December 1959), which in turn succeeded Mathematical Tables and Aids to Computation (January 1943 – July 1943).

Author Comments:
The journal has a World-Wide Web site at
It provides tables of contents data for 1996–date.
This journal is unusual in that issue numbers increase uniformly, without a fixed number of issues per volume. Early volumes did not assign months, but by the 1960s, each issue included a month, although the publication month appears to be irregular. Regrettably, the MathSciNet database, which supplied the data for many of the entries below, does not record month data.
The final pages of each issue are devoted to reviews, and brief (sometimes only a few lines) communications about errata in published mathematical tables. In some, the author is identified, but in others, only author initials are supplied. Bibliographic data for this end matter appears to be somewhat unreliably recorded in journal databases, even in the publisher's own MathSciNet database.
Data for the bibliography has been collected from the OCLC Contents1st database, from the bibliographies in the TeX User Group collection, from bibliographies in the author's personal files, from the IEEE INSPEC CD ROM databases (1989–Sep 1996), and from the computer science bibliography collection on in /pub/bibliography to which many people of have contributed. The snapshot of this collection was taken on 5-May-1994, and it consists of 441 BibTeX files, 2,672,675 lines, 205,289 entries, and 6,375 <at>String abbreviations, occupying 94.8MB of disk space.
For version 2.00, data from the JSTOR database was merged in. This database provides complete page images of the entire journal, and allows full-text searching into OCR text derived from the page images.
Mathematical markup, which is required extensively in this journal, was evidently added by hand. The result is that there are frequent discrepancies between the MathSciNet and JSTOR titles; when these did not appear to be typographically similar, the original journal pages were consulted, and generally given preference. Also, JSTOR markup is generally in LaTeX2e form, while the MathSciNet markup is in plain TeX form, and often includes typographically niceties like thin spaces, which the JSTOR markup omits.
The JSTOR author and title data is often missing accents; sometimes these accents appeared in the original journal text, and sometimes not. MathSciNet has the practice of supplying accents, particularly in personal names, even when they are missing from the original publication. Since the loss of accents in the latter sometimes reflected technological limitations in the journal typesetting, and since the accents are essential in the languages from which those personal names came, I have followed the MathSciNet convention, and provided accents were possible. Nevertheless, since it is not feasible for me to check every journal title page, and MathSciNet covers only about half the publications in this journal, some accents surely still remain missing.
Although the JSTOR author and title data may have been derived from the OCR text of the journal pages, the need for extensive mathematical markup appears to have introduced many other errors. Whenever a discrepancy between JSTOR and MathSciNet was detected, the original journal title pages were consulted.
Finally, MathSciNet has a practice of including additional information, such as journal citation and MRnumber data, in titles that comment on other articles, or for articles that are accompanied by supplements. Since this additional information is helpful, I have retained it, even though it does not appear in the original title. In retrospect, I probably should have introduced a separate MRtitle key/value pair to distinguish between them, but the effort to merge in the JSTOR data has exhausted me.
Numerous errors in the sources noted above have been corrected. Spelling has been verified with the UNIX spell and GNU ispell programs using the exception dictionary stored in the companion file with extension .sok.
BibTeX citation tags are uniformly chosen as name:year:abbrev, where name is the family name of the first author or editor, year is a 4-digit number, and abbrev is a 3-letter condensation of important title words. Citation tags were automatically generated by software developed for the BibNet Project.
