The 26 revised full research papers and 13 revised system descriptions presented together with 4 invited papers and a summary of the CASCJ4 systems competition were carefully...   The History of Approximation Theory: From Euler to BernsteinThe problem of approximating a given quantity is one of the oldest challenges faced by mathematicians. Its increasing importance in contemporary mathematics has created an entirely new area known as Approximation Theory. The modern theory was initially developed along two divergent schools of thought: the Eastern or Russian group, employing... 

  Topics in Geometry, Coding Theory and Cryptography (Algebra and Applications)The purpose of this reviewarticle is to serve as an introduction and at the same time, as an invitation to the theory of towers of function fields over finite fields. More specifically, we treat here the case of explicit towers; i.e., towers where the function fields are given by explicit equations. The asymptotic behaviour of the genus and of the...   Beyond Reason: Eight Great Problems That Reveal the Limits of ScienceA mindbending excursion to the limits of science and mathematics Are some scientific problems insoluble? In Beyond Reason, internationally acclaimed math and science author A. K. Dewdney answers this question by examining eight insurmountable mathematical and scientific roadblocks that have stumped thinkers across the...
