News and Notes
Subtitled "a set of stories, together with a group of oddments and diversions, all drawn from the universe of mathematics," this anthology is not aimed at the Ph.D. candidate, but rather the layman. As a result, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to enjoy these quirky tales and poems, from Robert Heinlein's "--And He Built a Crooked House," a story about the difficulties of 4-dimensional home design, to the classic limerick:
There was a young lady named Bright,
Who traveled much faster than light.
She started one day
In the relative way,
And returned on the previous night.
