The Notices, the membership journal of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), is sent to AMS members monthly and is archived on their website.

This journal provides opportunities for mathematicians and students of mathematics to find out what is going on in the field. Each issue contains one or two such expository articles that describe current developments in mathematical research, written by professional mathematicians. The Notices also carries articles on the history of mathematics, mathematics education, and professional issues facing mathematicians, as well as reviews of books, plays, movies, and other artistic and cultural works involving mathematics.

This month's features are:

  • The Felix Klein Protocols
  • The Uneasy Relationship between Mathematics and Cryptography

In the Commentary section, see:

  • Opinion: What Does a Mathematician Look Like?
  • Letters to the Editor
  • Alfred Tarski. Life and Logic
  • The Trouble with Physics
