Mathematician of Special Interest
Welcome to the Interesting Mathematician site. Here, you
find biographies of various mathematicians, with a new mathematician being
profiled each month (that's about all that I can find time for!). As a
unique twist, I will try to profile mathematicians who aren't as
well-known as some of the bigger names, like Newton, Euler, etc. Also, my
selection of mathematicians greatly depends upon availability of materials
on the individual. For example, I will begin with a profile on Stan
Ulam. This work was based on the book Adventures of a
Mathematician. The book was a gift to me from the Math department at
the University of Washington.
