Stan Wagon and Wolfram Research, Inc.  
Based on Mathematica technology, The Mathematical Explorer mixes text, graphics, and formulas in an easytouse notebook interface, offering a set of explorations for investigating some of the most fascinating topics in mathematics, from Escher patterns and square wheels to Fermat's Last Theorem and the Riemann Hypothesis. More than just an electronic textbook, The Mathematical Explorer is part guide, part calculator, part museum, and part textbook. Topics include prime numbers, calculus, pi, check digits, secret codes, turtle fractalization, patterns in chaos, unusual number systems, and the fourcolor theorem.
