 Solving the Quintic by Iteration [PDF]  Peter Doyle, Curt McMullen
This paper, which appeared in Acta Mathematica, gives explicitly a new solution to the quintic polynomial, in which the transcendental inversion of the icosahedral map (due to Hermite and Kronecker) is replaced by a purely iterative algorithm. The algorithm

 Three Years Of Computing: Final Report on the Palindrome Quest  John Walker
"Pick a number. Reverse its digits and add the resulting number to the original number. If the result isn't a palindrome, repeat the process. Do all numbers in base 10 eventually become palindromes through this process? Nobody knows." The story of a

 The Travelling Monkey  Ivars Peterson (MathLand)
One of the classic problems of planning ahead concerns a traveling salesman who must visit customers in a number of cities scattered across the country and then return home. The problem is to find the shortest possible route visiting each city only once.
