              The year's finest mathematical writing from around the world This annual anthology brings together the year's finest mathematics writing from around the world. Featuring promising new voices alongside some of the foremost names in the field, The Best Writing on Mathematics 2019 m...akes available to a wide audience many articles not easily found anywhere else--and you don't need to be a mathematician to enjoy them. These essays delve into the history, philosophy, teaching, and everyday aspects of math, offering surprising insights into its nature, meaning, and practice--and taking readers behind the scenes of today's hottest mathematical debates. Here, Moon Duchin explains how geometric-statistical methods can be used to design voting districts, Jeremy Avigad illustrates the growing use of computation in making and verifying mathematical hypotheses, and Kokichi Sugihara describes how to construct geometrical objects with unusual visual properties. In other essays, Neil Sloane presents some recent additions to the vast database of integer sequences he has catalogued and Alessandro Di Bucchianico and his colleagues highlight how mathematical methods have been successfully applied to big data problems. And there's much, much more. In addition to presenting the year's most memorable math writing, this must-have anthology includes an introduction by the editor and a bibliography of other notable pieces on mathematics. This is a must-read for anyone interested in where math has taken us--and where it is headed.

              An introduction to computational complexity theory, its connections and interactions with mathematics, and its applications to science, the social sciences, and engineering Mathematics and Computation provides a broad, conceptual overview of computational complexity theory-the ma...thematical study of efficient computation. With important practical applications to computer science and industry, computational complexity theory has evolved into a highly interdisciplinary field, with strong links to number theory, group theory, statistical physics, and combinatorial geometry. Avi Wigderson takes a sweeping survey of complexity theory, emphasizing the field's open problems. He explains the ideas and motivations leading to key models, notions, and results. In particular, he looks at algorithms and complexity, computations and proofs, randomness and interaction, quantum and arithmetic computation, and cryptography and learning, all as parts of a cohesive whole with numerous cross-influences. Wigderson illustrates the immense breadth of the field, its beauty and richness, and its diverse and growing interactions with other areas of mathematics. Wigderson ends with a panoramic view of the theory of computation, its methodology and aspirations, and the unique and fundamental ways in which it has and will further shape science, technology, and society. For further reading, an extensive bibliography is provided for all topics covered. Useful for undergraduates in mathematics and computer science and working researchers and teachers in the field, Mathematics and Computation sheds conceptual light on an important arena of computation. * Comprehensive coverage of computational complexity theory * High-level, intuitive exposition of material * Historical accounting of the evolution and motivations of central concepts and models * Resourceful look at the theory's influence on science, technology, and society * Extensive bibliography
