Author:Ivars Peterson
Description: Peterson points out that nonmathematicians interested in keeping up with contemporary mathematical research face daunting obstacles: the high level of abstraction, unenlightening notation, and the format of journal papers all conspire to make any foray into the mathematical literature frustrating and unrewarding. Mathematicians can do more to make their research accessible to a wider audience. Previously published in the SIAM Review.
