About this book


Mathematics Unlimited - 2001 and Beyond" is a book guaranteed to delight the reader. This veritable treasure trove not only depicts the state of mathematics at the end of the century, but is also full of remarkable insights into its future development as we enter a new millennium. True to its title, the book extends beyond the spectrum of mathematics, both pure and applied, to include contributions from other related sciences. Whatever your field of expertise, you will enjoy reading the many stimulating contributions and, in so doing, gain insights into the astounding progress of mathematics and the perspectives for its future over the next 100 years. One of the editors, Björn Engquist, is a world-renowned researcher in computational science and engineering, and professor at the University of California in Los Angeles, as well as a member of the Executive Committee of the International Mathematical Union. The second editor, Wilfried Schmid, is a distinguished mathematician at Harvard University. Likewise, the authors are all foremost mathematicians and scientists, and their biographies and photographs appear at the end of the book. Unique in both form and content, this is a "must-read" for every mathematician and scientist and, in particular, for graduates still choosing their specialty.
