http://www.amazon.com/Music-Primes-Searching-Greatest-Mathematics/dp/0060935588/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-7250087-6485431?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1178413008&sr=1-1
The quest to bring advanced math to the masses continues with this engaging but quixotic treatise. The mystery in question is the Riemann Hypothesis, named for the hypochondriac German mathematician Bernard Reimann (1826-66), which ties together imaginary numbers, sine waves and prime numbers in a way that the world's greatest mathematicians have spent 144 years trying to prove. Oxford mathematician and BBC commentator du Sautoy does his best to explain the problem, but stumbles over the fact that the Riemann Hypothesis and its corollaries are just too hard for non-tenured readers to understand. He falls back on the staples of math popularizations by shifting the discussion to easier math concepts.Educational > Mathematics > Textbooks/BooksnarkySun, 06 May 2007 01:00:13 GMTBeginning Topology (Brooks/Cole Series in Advanced Mathematics) by Sue Goodman
http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Topology-Brooks-Advanced-Mathematics/dp/0534424260/ref=sr_1_1/102-4507258-4866556?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1179129464&sr=8-1
With a nice balance of mathematical precision and accessibility, this text provides a broad introduction to the field of topology. Author Sue Goodman piques student curiosity and interest without losing necessary rigor so that they can appreciate the beauty and fun of mathematics. The text demonstrates that mathematics is an active and ever-changing field with many problems still unsolved, and students will see how the various areas of mathematics ? algebra, combinatorics, geometry, calculus, and differential equations ? interact with topology. Students learn some of the major ideas and results in the field, do explorations and fairly elementary proofs, and become aware of some recent questions.Educational > Mathematics > Topology BooksnarkyMon, 14 May 2007 08:02:30 GMTElements of general topology by Donald Bushaw (2nd edition)

http://www.simonsingh.net/Fermats_Last-Theorem_The_Book.html
Over three hundred and fifty years were to pass before a mild-mannered Englishman finally cracked the mystery in 1995. Fermat by then was far more than a theorem. Whole lives had been devoted to the quest for a solution. There was Sophie Germain, who had to take on the identity of a man to conduct research in a field forbidden to females. The dashing Evariste Galois scribbled down the results of his research deep into the night before sauntering out to die in a duel. The Japanese genius Yutaka Taniyama killed himself in despair, while the German industrialist Paul Wolfskehl claimed Fermat had saved him from suicide.Educational > Mathematics > Textbooks/BooksnarkyFri, 25 May 2007 05:25:05 GMTNew Scientist Graduate for Science students and Postgraduates looking for their first job

http://www.slate.com/id/2060110
Here's what's true in Ron Howard's movie A Beautiful Mindâ€”or, at least, here's what corresponds to Sylvia Nasar's biography of the same name: The mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr. attended graduate school at Princeton, where he was arrogant, childish, and brilliant. His doctoral thesis on the so-called "Nash equilibrium" revolutionized economics. Over time, he began to suffer delusions. He was hospitalized for paranoid schizophrenia, administered insulin shock therapy, and released...Educational > Mathematics > PeoplenarkySat, 21 Oct 2006 12:58:35 GMTAlgebraic Topology by Allen Hatcher
http://www.math.cornell.edu/~hatcher/
A bunch of books written by Allen Hatcher, in particular Algebraic Topology (described below) recommended by Grant... This is the first in a series of three textbooks in algebraic topology having the goal of covering all the basics while remaining readable by newcomers seeing the subject for the first time. The first book contains the basic core material along with a number of optional topics of a relatively elementary nature. The other two books, which are largely independent of each other, are provisionally titled "Vector Bundles and K-Theory" and "Spectral Sequences in Algebraic Topology."Educational > Mathematics > Topology BooksnarkyWed, 16 May 2007 22:15:21 GMTAustralian Mathematical Sciences Institute

The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute was established in November 2002 with initial funding of $1M from the Victorian Government's Science, Technology and Innovation Infrastructure grants program and matching funds from a member consortium of Australian universities and other mathematical organizations. AMSI's premises were provided by the University of Melbourne and are located at 111 Barry Street, Carlton. AMSI's mission is to become a nationally and internationally recognised centre for the mathematical sciences, providing service to its member institutions, improving the international competitiveness of Australian industry and commerce and enhancing the national level of school mathematics, by the provision and support of mathematical and statiEducational > MathematicsnarkyMon, 05 Jun 2006 23:49:47 GMT
