Reading these articles again has given us insights into what animates mathematicians as they shared their enthusiasm with non-specialists, including experts in fieldsother than their own. that they share is for hard, significant problems-and discovering their solutions. One passion The Intelligencer has carried a considerable number of articles that report on such breakthroughs as Faltings' affirmative answer to the Morden conjecture (for which he won a Fields Medal in 1986), Vaughan Jones' work on knots (part of the work that earned him a Fields Medal in 1990), the solu tion ofthe Bieberbach conjecture, and progress in the fast-moving area of work on hyperbolic three manifolds, solutions, instantons, and string theory. Another passion is for the sheer joy of doing mathematics. Can you imagine Boy's surface or think geometricallyabout differential equations? Calculating, whether in algebra, analysis, combina torics, or geometry, is not just a mathematician's bread and butter; it has its own appeal and excite ment, and some ofthat is conveyed in these pages."Read Less
