Later on, mathematicians took up the much more difficult question, can we find a formula for rk(n), the number of ways to express n as a sum of k integral squares? This last question led to some of the most sophisticated mathematics of the 20th century, as did a common generalization of all these questions...Hidden Symmetries of Labyrinths from Antiquity and the Middle Ages

The purpose of this column is to point out that the great majority of labyrinth designs share a topological symmetry which, while not obvious, cannot be accidental...Mathematics and Ecology

Rather than try to show the huge range of ways that mathematics is assisting biologists in understanding the vast landscape of modern biology, I will take a look at a rather small domain, which offers ways to look at some traditional topics from a novel point of view...Game. SET. Line.

After playing the game for a while, two natural questions appear, which we will explore: "How many cards need to be turned face up to guarantee the presence of a set?" and "What is the probability that the initial twelve cards do not contain a set?"...Sums and Integrals: The Swiss analysis knife
