9780821826973: Mathematics: Frontiers and Perspectives

This remarkable book is a celebration of the state of mathematics at the end of the millennium. Produced under the auspices of the International Mathematical Union (IMU), the volume was born as part of the activities observing the World Mathematical Year 2000.

The volume consists of 30 articles written by some of the most influential mathematicians of our time. Authors of 15 contributions were recognized in various years by the IMU as recipients of the Fields Medal, from K. F. Roth (Fields Medalist, 1958) to W. T. Gowers (Fields Medalist, 1998). The articles offer valuable reflections about the amazing mathematical progress we have witnessed in this century and insightful speculations about the possible development of mathematics over the next century.

Some articles formulate important problems, challenging future mathematicians. Others pay explicit homage to the famous set of Hilbert Problems posed one hundred years ago, giving enlightening commentary. Yet other papers offer a deeply personal perspective, allowing singular insight into the minds and hearts of people doing mathematics today.

Mathematics: Frontiers and Perspectives is a unique volume that pertains to a broad mathematical audience of various backgrounds and levels of interest. It offers readers true and unequaled insight into the wonderful world of mathematics at this important juncture: the turn of the millennium.

The work is one of those rare volumes that can be browsed, and if you do simply browse through it, you get a wonderful sense of mathematics today. Yet it also can be intensely studied on a detailed technical level for gaining insight into some of the great problems on which mathematicians are currently working.

Individual members of mathematical societies of the IMU member countries can purchase this volume at the AMS member price when buying directly from the AMS.

From the Publisher :

This collection of essays will reward and stimulate anyone who dips into it. It belongs on every mathematician's bookshelf and in the mathematics collection of every library.

MAA Monthly

From the Inside Flap :

You can read this book as if listening to a succession of high-powered old school friends who are passing through ... most tell you about the mathematics that animates them ... you get a good sense of what they do, what's difficult about it, and why it matters ... provocative remarks ... vigorous account of much of the Russian school of mathematics ... thought-provoking reflections about mathematical life and language ... The most pleasing feature of this handsome book is the emphasis on the unity of mathematics ... The connections many people here want to make between mathematics and physics, von Neumann algebras and knot theory, number theory and analysis, are not only fresh and vivid, but oddly coherent. They give a sense not only of mathematics undergoing one of its characteristic contractions around a few organising principles, but how productive this reorganisation can be.
