Mathematics on the Internet

Last updated on 07/17/2005

MathSearch is the Yahoo of mathematics, but Yahoo has its own site on mathematics. MathWorldTM claims that Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics is the web's most complete mathematical resource. The free encyclopedia on the web called Wikipedia will be the most comprehensive encyclopedia in the near future. Visit the Wikipedia Mathematics site or go to the mathematics section of Educypedia, before using any search engine. In your spare time, browse inside of Math Archives or simply use this primitive search engine to visit Mathematics web sites around the world. If you frequently ask Math questions, then you'd better go to this FAQ site; Dr. Math is only allowed to teach kids from K to 12. Stealing is very very bad but if you steal anything useful from this Mathematical Programming Glossary site, be sure to check the Morality code. The author wants you to be courteous.

One of the best Math sites in this ever changing cyberspace is The Geometry Center; specially, their beautiful Gallery. To become an art lover while being totally tessellated, use your tessellating surfing board and surf through The mathematical art of M. C. Escher. If you like the pictures on your left, then I urge you to visit the Gallery of parametric and implicit equations in Norway. In your solitude go to this Mathematics Museum in Japan; they greet you with a badly performed and loud midi music but they give you very stable solitary waves in a solution of the Soliton equations.

While surfing through this inquisitive site, please do not mention God who created arithmetic, as the author of the universe. If you are sent to this finite universe, instead of trying to reach its boundary, get on its various surfaces. The birthplaces of famous mathematicians are shown at the MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive. At the History of Mathematics Links, you can find sites relating to individual mathematicians such as Eratosthenes of Cyrene, Sir James Ivory, or Mahler, the mathematician Kurt, not the musician Gustav.

In a sunny day, first read how sundials and waterclocks are made and then tell me why does January first occur more frequently on some days than others? If you are tired of integrating your functions by hand, pay a visit to the mighty Integrator. If you are familiar with esreveR hsiloP noitatoN , then you should use this Calculator. Be sure to check out to see if you are overweight :>{)
There is a dark and very spooky place where you can see clearly the world population every second. If by chance you get out of there, then surf through Galaxy and move to a cyberplace, where they teach you how to solve your problems in the 21st Century!?!?

Forget about or Barnes and Nobles; instead surf through and get as many scientific books as your heart desires free of charge. To get a list of links to useful mathematical textbooks available for free on the Internet visit Textbooks in Mathematics. While walking with an iguana!! on his head, Alexandre shows you how to beat the copyright system and start an e-library in mathematics free of charge. Trust me the list as he claims is extensive. To read your favorite math journal go to Zentralblatt MATH in Berline, Germany. I know in fact that PRF (Polynomial Root Finder) is a reliable and fast C program along with Matlab for finding all roots of a complex polynomial. To get TeX fonts, get to the TeX Archive Network directory.

There is an index for every thing, even for curves; some are really intriguing. According to some calcutation in this Calculator site, there are at least 48,981,093 Favorite mathematical constants!?!? Ask them about gogoolplex, gogool, and myria? How many zeros would Nicolas Bourbaki who loved to play billiards, put in one billion? Is zetta larger than yotta? Wrong, try again. While riding a horse in Mongolia, I came up with a fast! way of squaring numbers. Have you gotten your Erdös number yet? Get all these numbers at the Frequently Asked Questions in Mathematics. They eveven explain why they made a list of Frequently Asked Questions. They are gonna talk about the lack of memory, or say that questions posed are, more often than not, at the level of an amateur practitioner . Finally they'll warn you that FAQ lists "expire'' on a given date, very much like any other perishable item. The answer to the great question of life, the universe, and everything else is hidden in the proof of n7 - n is divisible by 42, the number of Gods . By submitting your mouse to the miraculous 19, you will see its mighty power.

At The Largest Known Primes, they announce the

Even though there is a perfect Match between
this French monk and those binary numbers;
after 496 years, 28 days and 6 hours, no
one really knows if the numbers may be odd.
The man facing those steps was a friend of Blaise Pascal, who had a triangle and invented the first calculator for his father, and Pierre de Fermat, whose last theorem baffled every mathematician even after its resolution (maybe!?) in October 1994.

To join this π Club you must know at least 30 decimals; there is another friendly π Club for the rest of us. The San Francisco Exploratorium, a cool museum, every year celebrates π Day (3/14, at 1:59, of course, not to be confused with π Approximation Day). To see the proof of Irrationality of π, don't go further than my place, you get what you are looking for. Discover the musical power of π at Lucy Tune; they will play lullabies from around the world. Memorize 740 decimals of π by memorizing Poe, E. Near a Raven poem. A couple of good places to go after π, are The Continued Fractions and the Unsolved Mathematics Problems sites.

After seeing beautiful pictures at the Math Art Gallery, look at the part of the earth which is lit by the sun; you may even download the program at its source. In the Pavilion of Polyhedreality, everything is round and musical. To listen to Mandelbrot's heavenly music, go to Fractal concert. Beethoven can be seen at the Graphics Gallery. Fractal Gallery provides cruises on the fractal sea seen on this page. If you are not into cruising, then wait until midnight to witness the birth of a new fractal.

It is the year of rooster in the Chinese Calendar, so you should find out more about Chinese Mathematics.
Cross here if you don't remember the number of self-avoiding walks that a rook can take from one corner to the opposite corner on a chessboard. Still confused, then read about Myths in Mathematical Programming. Who do you call when you find a mathematical mistake? Zero Buster. With your mouse click gently to see a cow with all its grandeur. The Archimedes lab brews many interesting puzzles, but I became fascinated by its Numberopedia, there I found out an amazing fact about the prime number 199.

In the universe of Four Paradoxes, if you reach the Island of Zerneo you will meet the charming Zeno, but if you stay at home and only move your mouse around, you may only read math cartoons. Drink your café au lait at Café Mathematics ; they even serve appetizers. If you want to have fun randomly, then visit this mudd house.
Pascal is helping Fibonacci, Lucas, Catalan, Chebyshev, and one of the Bernoullis at Milan Milanovic's place. If you are shy but want to meet the ladies of mathematics, first dress up and then ask Blaise to come with you to the House of Agnes. You may even dance on the dark side of the moon.
According to Poisson, life is good for only two things; discovering mathematics and teaching mathematics. Dancing is just waste of time and does not solve any problem; it only produces sweat.

All the pictures except the fish are created by Mathematics; all the links are given above.
