  1. Moment of Truth - Keith Devlin (Devlin's Angle)
    "Just what do we mean by a 'proof'? It seems that mathematicians - and to avoid generating too many letters of complaint, let me hasten to rephrase that as 'we mathematicians' - are somewhat schizophrenic when it comes to answering this question. When ...more>>

  8. More than Just a Plane Game - Ivars Peterson (MathTrek)
    When topologists started to explore the world of geometric forms in higher dimensions, they found that neither the intuition nor the vocabulary of ordinary geometry was sufficient to describe and classify the new forms they discovered. They introduced ...more>>

  10. Morley's Pursuit of Incidence - Cut the Knot!, Alexander Bogomolny
    With all the geometric context of his theory (applets are provided for explorations), Morley's method is purely algebraic, founded on the theory of complex numbers. Curves are mappings x = f(t) from the unit circle. x = X + iY, where X and Y are the plane ...more>>

  14. Motion under Curvature - J. A. Sethian

  16. Move Over Fermat, Now It's Time for Beal's Problem - Keith Devlin (Devlin's Angle)
    Beal's Problem is like Fermat's, but instead of focusing on equations with one exponent, n, there are three: m, n, and r. Thus, Beal's equation looks like this: x^m + y^n = z^r. The idea is to look for whole number solutions to this equation where the ...more>>
