Financial and Actuarial Mathematics, TU Wien, Austria TU Wien FAM



The FAM-library is assigned to FAM - Financial and Actuarial Mathematics (E105-01 & -05) and is one of the libraries of the Department of Statistics and Mathematical Methods in Economics (E105) and a branch of the Main Library of the TU Wien.

In 1998, when FAM was founded, the staff members ordered books for their research as well as for teaching. In the meantime, we are proud of having more than 2700 books and we try to keep our library up to date.

Not only students and researchers from TU Wien, but also from other universities come to us for borrowing books. Furthermore, actuaries and other people from the private sector quite often find literature for their work in the FAM-library.

Locating books

For locating books, we refer to
With the search field on the starting page (= "Simple Search" ["Einfache Suche"]) you often find hundreds of results as CatalogPlus does not only search within autors and titles and it does not only find books but also e-books, theses, articles, reviews, and much more. We suggest the "Advanced Search" ["Erweiterte Suche"] if author and/or title is known.
With the faceted navigation [Facettennavigation] on the left side (at e.g. mobile phones you might have to open this navigation with clicking the filter/funnel symbol) you can apply multiple filters.
Online recources (e.g, e-books) can usually only be seen or downloaded from employees and students after sign-in.
For hardcopies (e.g., books, theses) click on "Available at ..." ["Verfügbar in ..."] and see at the shown "Location(s)" ["Standort(e)"] if there is an available copy. For information on the library/libraries click on the button "View location" ("Standort anzeigen") right of the name of a library. At departmental libraries ("TU Wien Institut EXXX") please also look at the name of the library after the departmens number as departments very often have difference collections (sub libraries) on different floors.

Within CatalogPlus FAM-library is the collection "FAM: Financial and actuarial mathematics" of the departmental library "TU Wien Institut E105"/"E105 Institute of Statistics and Mathematical Methods in Economics".
You can find all books of FAM-library as plain text list and as a list in CatalogPlus.
