Geometry and Topology
and the Imagination: A collection of handouts for a
two-week summer workshop entitled 'Geometry and the
Imagination', led by John Conway, Peter Doyle, Jane
Gilman and Bill Thurston at the Geometry Center in
Minneapolis, June 17-28, 1991.
Papers in Geometry: Scientific papers written at the
Geometry Center that use the unique aspects of hypertext
to present information in a non-linear fashion. Many of
these include movies or interactive pictures.
Euclid's Fifth Postulate: al-Haytham's Innovative
"Proof"; and Omar Khayyam's Response: A
brief history of the postulate, the inventive
"proof" by Ibn al-Haytham, and Omar Khayyam's
comments upon its validity.
Polyhedra: A growing collection of over 850 virtual
reality polyhedra for you to explore.
- Hopf Topology
Archive: The Hopf archive is a preprint server for
papers in algebraic topology.
and Topology Address Book: This menu offers
searchable Web and WAIS access to the list of email
addresses in geometry and topology maintained by Andrew
Nicas and others.
- Center for Geometry
Analysis Numerics and Graphics (GANG): An
interdisciplinary Differential Geometry research team in
the Mathematics Department, College of Natural Sciences
and Mathematics, at the University of Massachusetts
Atlas: A multipurpose center for electronic
distribution of information related to topology.
in Action: This page collects various areas in which
ideas from discrete and computational geometry (meaning
mainly low-dimensional Euclidean geometry) meet some real
History of Mathematics
Number Theory and Fermat Last Theorem
Mathematics of Fermat's Last Theorem: Presents an
overview of some of the mathematics that has either been
developed over the years to try to solve the problem
(directly or indirectly) or else which has been found to
Last Theorem: An Introduction to the History of
Fermat's Last Theorem.
Curves: A collection of links on research articles on
elliptic curves and related topics (applications, modular
History of the Shimura-Taniyama Conjecture: In this
paper Serge Lang deal specifically with the history of
the conjecture which asserts that every elliptic curve
over Q (the field of rational numbers)
Algebra Online: This site contains many definitions
and theorems from an abstract algebra course based on the
books: Abstract Algebra, Second Edition, by John
A. Beachy and William D. Blair; Waveland Press, P.O. Box
400, Prospect Heights, Illinois, 60070 and Abstract
Algebra II, by John A. Beachy Copyright 1996, 160

Pub Forum Home Page: This web site acts as a clearing
house for information about Group Theory.
It main feature, the mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
is for the discussion of any aspect of Group Theory. The
reason for the name is that the spirit is supposed to be
that of a conversation in a pub at a Group Theory
Analysis: This page gives a brief introduction to
Multidimensional Analysis, a generalization of linear
algebra which incorporates ideas from dimensional
analysis, useful to science and engineering..
