What's Happening in the Mathematical Sciences 1998-1999 (Vol 4) By Barry Cipra

Jacket: Paperback
Pages: pages
Publisher: American Mathematical Society
Genre: Science
ISBN: 0821807668

Comments about the author: Barry Cipra is a mathematician and writer based in Northfield, Minnesota.


Review: This is an excellent book for those who have an interest in the mathematical sciences and the personalities that make up the field. Cipra takes a complex science and makes it available to anyone from the high schooler to the educated layman.

The article on Erdos is well done and is an excellent companion to The Man Who Loved Only Numbers and Poincare's famous article "Mathematical Discovery" points out the Eureca moment and the deep thinking for which mathematicians are so well known.

The American Mathematical Society is in the process of preparing another work in this series, and I for one am waiting anxiously for its release.
