Nobel Prize Winning Mathematicians

(These won Nobel prizes in physics, literature, or economics, since
there is none for mathematics, but now there is an
Abel Prize in Mathematics, starting in 2003)

The Mathematical Problems of David Hilbert

``Hilbert's address of 1900 to the International Congress of
Mathematicians in Paris is perhaps the most influential speech ever
given to mathematicians, given by a mathematician, or given about
mathematics... Although almost a century old, Hilbert's address is
still important and should be read (at least in part) by anyone
interested in pursuing research in mathematics. ''

solution over the years''

Internet consisting of

o Math-Web, the core collection - ordered by subject - of pointers
to the mathematics information resources, including the field of
Scientific Computing,

o Math-Net, a collection - ordered by locations and names - of links
to mathematical institutions, centers and larger research
projects, at present most of them from Germany,

o The Mathematical Museum and Expositions, an extension of the
Math-Web into History, Art and Natural Sciences, with a couple of
exits to related virtual museums and exhibitions,

o Electronic Publishing, a collection reflecting discussions on
electronic publishing in mathematics, and also various pointers to
activities and projects related to the more general Digital
Libraries thema, and of

o Internet Resources, containing some pointers to specific Internet
archives which may be of value for the mathematical Internaut.''

Mathematical Quotation Server and some examples:

``It is not knowledge, but the act of learning, not possession but the act of getting there, which grants the greatest enjoyment. When I have clarified and exhausted a subject, then I turn away from it, in order to go into darkness again; the never-satisfied man is so strange if he has completed a structure, then it is not in order to dwell in it peacefully, but in order to begin another. I imagine the world conqueror must feel thus, who, after one kingdom is scarcely conquered, stretches out his arms for others.''

``It is the heart which perceives God and not the reason.''

``The mind uses its faculty for creativity only when experience forces it to do so.''

Bemerkungen von und über Mathematiker

Math Jokes and an example:

``Three employees of NOSC (an engineer, a physicist and a mathematician)
are staying in a hotel while attending a technical seminar.
The engineer wakes up and smells smoke. He goes out into the hallway
and sees a fire, so he fills a trashcan from his room with water and
douses the fire. He goes back to bed.

Later, the physicist wakes up and smells smoke. He opens his door and
sees a fire in the hallway. He walks down the hall to a fire hose and
after calculating the flame velocity, distance, water pressure,
trajectory, etc. extinguishes the fire with the minimum amount of
water and energy needed.

Later, the mathematician wakes up and smells smoke. He goes to the
hall, sees the fire and then the fire hose. He thinks for a moment
and then exclaims, "Ah, a solution exists!" and then goes back to bed.
