    "The just produced issue of the quarterly "Geombinatorics" is dedicated entirely to the memory of Paul Erdos. It includes essays by Paul Erdos and Janos Pach, Branko Grunbaum, Peter Horak, Paul Kainen, Jaroslav Nesetril, Alexander Soifer, and Bohdan Zelinka. It contains a pencil portrait of Paul Erdos by J. Nesetril and four photographs. The issue is, of course, a part of vol. VI, and will be mailed to the subscribers in a matter of a few days. We realize, however, that it is quite possible to be interested in this issue without a 'burning desire' to read all other problem posing essays that "Geombinatorics" has to offer. We, therefore, made this issue available without subscription as well."
    MathSciNet is the searchable Web database providing access to over 55 years of Mathematical Reviews and Current Mathematical Publications from 1940 to the present. It is accessible throughout the UConn campuses. Click on the SEARCH button.
    Both bibliographic data and review texts are available from 1980-present. Bibliographic data is available from 1940-1979. Items listed in the annual indexes of Mathematical Reviews but not given an individual review are also included.
    Current Mathematical Publications data is added daily. Mathematical Reviews data is added each month when the printed issue is complete. The Mathematical Reviews record for an item with a review replaces the Current Mathematical Publications record for that item.
    MathSciNet is available at several locations at The University of Connecticut. Note that it is accessible only through users within the UConn domain.

  • NTL is a high-performance, portable C++ library providing data structures and algorithms for manipulating signed, arbitrary length integers, and for vectors, matrices, and polynomials over the integers and over finite fields.
  • NTL uses state-of-the-art algorithms. In particular, it's code for polynomial arithmetic is one of the fastest available. Early versions of NTL have been used to set "world records" for polynomial factorization and point counting on elliptic curves.
  • NTL is written entirely in C++, and can be easily installed on just about any Unix platform, including PCs, and 32- and 64-bit workstations. Despite the fact that NTL is written in C++ and avoids assembly, NTL's performance is generally much better than is typical of such portable libraries.
  • NTL is relatively easy to use, and it provides a good environment for easily and quickly implementing new number-theoretic algorithms, without sacrificing performance.
  • NTL is free software that is intended for research and educational purposes only.
  • Number Theory Web [Australian Site] [American Mirror Site]
    Set up by Keith Matthews of the University of Queensland. So far it consists of two sections: 185 links to number theorists' homepages, as well as links to various things he believes are of interest to mathematicians interested in number theory. If you would like to be listed, please send your URL to Keith at
    He suggests that your minimal homepage should contain:
    1. Your email and snailmail addresses.
    2. Your special fields of interest.
    3. A link to your list of publications, (links to .dvi or .ps versions of papers/preprints, where possible).
    4. If you are part of a group of number theorists at your institution, a link to a listing of the group would be informative.
    5. Links to coworkers or those with similar interests could also be included.
    6. Also any links to seminars, conferences, forth-coming books, books you have already published - past and present, online lecture notes, online seminar notes, online theses, etc.
    7. Research problems that you think are worthwhile attacking.
    Prime K-Tuplets
    Put together by Tony Forbes <>
    A prime k-tuplet is a sequence of k consecutive primes such that the separation between the first and last is minimal in some sense. See [1] for a precise definition. The notion generalises the concept of prime twins.
    Tony requests, that, in order to keep the information accurate and up to date, any new, large (proven) prime k-tuplets, as well as corrections to the existing entries, suggestions for improvements, etc., be communicated to him.
    Tables of Number Fields
    Compiled by the Computational Number Theory group in Bordeaux. These tables have been completed, when necessary, by adding the needed arithmetic information. All the tables are given in a unique format, and contain the main invariants of number fields, such as Galois group, class and unit group, etc...

    Computers in Calculus Instruction
    John Myers, a mathematics major at Millsaps College in Jackson, MS, is completing research on the ways in which computers are being utilized to aid in calculus instruction with a goal of compiling a thorough list of various resources available on mathematics education, particularly computer-aided instruction of calculus.
    Calculator Malfunctions
    Mark McClure ( has collected a bunch of functions whose graphs are rendered incorrectly on some type of graphing calculator. According to Mark,
    This page should in no way be considered as an attack on graphing calculators. In fact, I am very much in favor of their continued use in education. However, they do make mistakes sometimes and teachers and students alike should be aware of what types of mistakes might arise to be able to use a graphing calculator efficiently. So this page is my little contribution to the proper use of technology in mathematics education (at least as I see it).
    Calculus Resources On-Line

    Connected Curriculum Project
    CCP now has three sites; each of the three sites has links to the others.

    The Montana State site includes interactive text materials of book length for a variety of courses.

    The Duke site concentrates on "modules" -- lab-length units grouped under headings for eight different courses, but which can be used in a modular fashion to support a variety of different courses, as well as for self-study and enrichment.

    The Cal Poly site concentrates on interdisciplinary projects of a more extended and open-ended sort. In contrast to Duke modules that might occupy a student or small team of students for one to two hours (plus some write-up time, if required), and the Montana State units that could occupy a whole semester, the Cal Poly units might take one to two weeks for adequate student response.

    A common thread at all three sites is active involvement of the learner. Another common thread is the mode of delivery. To the extent possible, they rely on HTML and Java, which are universally accessible and essentially independent of platform.

    Since the bulk of our material is in the HTML document, it is relatively easy to create additional versions of the modules for other computer algebra systems.

    The Connected Curriculum Project is supported by a National Science Foundation planning grant to Cal Poly, on which Duke is a subcontractor and Frank Wattenberg and others are consultants.

    Third International Mathematics and Science Study
    A study of classrooms across the country and around the world. It is the largest international comparative study of educational achievement to date. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) of the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Canadian Government are funding the international TIMSS project to assess school achievement in mathematics and science in nearly 50 countries. TIMSS will study student outcomes, instructional practices, curricula, and cultural context. The international coordination of TIMSS activities is centered at Boston College under the direction of Professor Albert Beaton. One of the driving forces behind TIMSS is the recognition by policymakers that mathematical and scientific literacy affect economic productivity. World-class competence in math and science is essential to compete successfully in today's interdependent global marketplace. TIMSS will provide a comparative international assessment of educational achievement in those two subjects and the factors that contribute to it.
