The MAA was once based in 1915 to function a house for The American Mathematical Monthly. The challenge of the Association-to improve arithmetic, specifically on the collegiate level-has, besides the fact that, consistently been better than only publishing world-class mathematical exposition. MAA individuals have explored greater than simply arithmetic; we've got, as this quantity attempts to make obtrusive, investigated mathematical connections to pedagogy, background, the humanities, know-how, literature, each box of highbrow undertaking. Essays, all commissioned for this quantity, comprise exposition through Bob Devaney, Robin Wilson, and Frank Morgan; historical past from Karen Parshall, Della Dumbaugh, and invoice Dunham; pedagogical dialogue from Paul Zorn, Joe Gallian, and Michael Starbird, and cultural statement from Bonnie Gold, Jon Borwein, and Steve Abbott.

This quantity includes 35 essays by way of all-star writers and expositors writing to have fun a unprecedented century for mathematics-more arithmetic has been created and released in view that 1915 than in all of past recorded background. we have now solved age-old mysteries, created whole new fields of analysis, and adjusted our notion of what arithmetic is. lots of these tales are informed during this quantity because the members paint a portrait of the extensive cultural sweep of arithmetic in the course of the MAA's first century. arithmetic is the main exciting, the main human, sector of highbrow inquiry; you will discover during this quantity compelling evidence of that claim.

One assumes that at least part of Fatou’s monograph was originally intended to be submitted for the Grand Prize. Fatou and Julia’s monographs collectively form the bedrock of contemporary complex dynamics. Partitioning the plane into domains of normality and non-normality, they exploited the deep connections between Montel’s theory of normal families and complex dynamics. Fatou and Julia each understood the topological structure of the Julia and Fatou sets, as well as the dynamics of iteration on each, including the fact that the forward orbit of a neighborhood of a point in the Julia set encompasses the entire sphere, with the exception of at most two points.
