Ode to Numbers
contains poems written over a quarter of a century and
inspired by mathematics and the author's
life as a mathematician.
The poems trace the story of Sarah's life from early childhood in Europe to the forty years long research and teaching career in
mathematics in the United States. They respond, in turn, to students and topics of the courses Sarah has taught, the colleagues she has
worked with and the research projects she has been involved in, the joys of professional travel, thepleasures and difficulties facing a
woman pursuing a career in mathematics, and most of all, Sarah's life-long love of both mathematics and poetry.
