|The home page of one of the developers of the Toom-Cook, or Toom-3 algorithm, a method of multiplying two large integers. Toom's English-language mathematics articles, published in journals such as the Journal of Statistical Physics, include "Non-Ergodic Multidimensional Systems of Automata," "Discrete Local Markov Systems," "On Critical Phenomena in Interacting Growth Systems," "Cellular Automata with Errors: Problems for Students of Probability," "Simple 1-Dimensional Systems with Super-Exponential Relaxation Time," "Tails in Harnesses," "On Percolatoon with Fibers or Layers," and "Non-Gibbsianness of the invariant measures of non-reversible cellular automata with totally asymmetric noise." His English-language articles on education include "A Russian Teacher in America," "From Russia with Math," "How I Teach Word Problems," "Word problems: Applications vs. Mental Manipulatives," "Between Childhood and Mathematics: Word Problems in Mathematical Education," and the unpublished manuscript, "Wars in American Mathematical Education." Download these and other articles written in Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Swedish, plus graduate and undergraduate statistics course materials from his classes at the University of Pernambuco (Brazil). With links on cellular automata, large integer multiplication, and mathematical education. Also available at http://www.de.ufpe.br/~toom/.|
