Date: Tue Apr 11 2000 - 17:50:14 EDT In answer to the first question below, the website

includes, among other interesting lists, a list of the ten
largest known of the 38 known Mersenne primes. It notes
that the largest listed may not be the 38th according to
size since "the region between the largest two and the
previous primes has not been completely searched".
The abbreviated website
has an astonishing amount of information on primes, including ways to see them graphically and even hear them.

Olga Alexandrovna Ladyzhenskaya
March 7, 1922 - January 12, 2004 Received her Ph.D. at the Leningrad State University in 1949 and her Doctorate in the Mathematics-Physical Sciences in 1953 at Moscow State University. Worked in the general areas of linear, quasilinear, and nonlinear partial (and some ordinary) differential equations of elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic types, with some theoretical applications to Navier-Stokes flow. Professor of Mathematics at the Physics Department at St. Petersburg University and Head of the Laboratory of Mathematical Physics at the St. Petersburg branch of the Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Science. Olga Ladyzhenskaya was a member of the St. Petersburg Mathematical Society since 1959. She was its vice-president for many years and its president between 1990 and 1998. In an email announcing the death of Ladyzhenskaya, Professor Max Gunzburger from Florida State University wrote: "Although a giant of mathematics, she is not known as a numerical analyst; however, she did provide the first (and still one of the few) rigorous proofs of the convergence of a finite difference method for the Navier-Stokes equations. More important, her seminal work on partial differential equations had tremendous and lasting influence on those who specialize in numerical PDEs. For example, she is the "L" of the celebrated LBB condition that arises in mixed finite element discretizations of the Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations.

Jesuit Mathematicians,
Scientists and Astronomers
The fact that eighty countries of the world have found that the Jesuit impact on these countries deserves commemorative stamps is an emphatic endorsement of world-wide interest in Jesuits. A few copies of the hundreds of stamps concerning Jesuit apostolates have been selected and displayed on these pages. They are arranged in eight different categories with as many stamps on a page as could reasonably fit. The narratives for the stamps derive from sources such as The Jesuit Annuarium (Yearbook) and Bangert's History of the Society of Jesus.
Some Jesuits fall into several categories so are mentioned more than once as long as there were different stamps for the different categories. Unfortunately many Jesuits who deserve mention were never honored by stamps. So, while this collection is not an exhaustive history of the Jesuit Society, it does indicate the world-wide interest in Jesuits. Pozzo's celebrated fresco on the ceiling of St. Ignatius provides a fitting introduction. (Joseph F. MacDonnell, S.J.)

What is, in your opinion, the most important thing for young students, aged 18-25, in order to achieve good scientific research later, assuming that they have enough talent?
First of all, students should not specialize in one field too early in life. They should study a wide range of mathematics, even physics and biology, too, if they want to be a mathematician. I recommend to them to go to hear leading mathematicians lecture and to read great mathematicians' works as early as possible, even when they do not yet have required knowledge for such lectures or books. I think age 20 is not too early to start. It is also helpful to have a model for the future in their mind. Many Russian mathematicians studied in this way when they were aged 18 - 25, and have achieved remarkable research.

"We have to be concerned about defense contractors who have classified information that has to be protected," said Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Wash., a former member of the House Intelligence Committee. Although he has been briefed on the case, Dicks declined comment on the FBI's investigation of Yeremin, a Russian mathematician who had been under contract to Lockheed Martin. Protecting stealth technology should be a top national security concern, Dicks said. "Congress needs to look into this more carefully," he said. "We need to set good policy guidelines about sensitive information."

01: History and biography
Formal studies in the history of mathematics developed much more slowly than studies in mathematics itself. There is a particular difficulty in that those who are well trained in historical analysis are typically insufficiently versed in mathematics to be able to appreciate the subject at hand. This has left mathematicians to write their history, by and large, although they are usually untrained for that task. Nonetheless, the stories of the people involved in developing mathematics are often inspiring or informative. A sense of what motivated mathematicians to pursue their key ideas helps put the importance of those results into a better context. Thus the study of the history of mathematics and its proponents includes several well-developed parts. The development of comparatively simple mathematics (through the calculus, for example) is now well documented, principally as part of the study of the development of scientific ideas in distinct human cultures through the 18th century. The development of mathematics in the last couple of centuries is instead more frequently studied thematically that is, the worldwide development of algebra, or statistics, say or through the lives of individual mathematicians. No attempt will be made to summarize the development of abstract and applied mathematics during this last few centuries; see the resources below. Some historical comments are included in the index pages for the separate disciplines.

Topic #9 - OP-SF NET July 15, 1996 ~~~~~~~~~ From: Juri M.Rappoport Subject: Report on Chebyshev Memorial Conference The Mechanics-Mathematics Faculty of Moscow State University, the Chebyshev Fund and the Institute of Nuclear Power Engineering (Obninsk) held an International Conference "Modern Problems in Mathematics and Mechanics" - CHEB96 in honour of the great Russian mathematician Pafnutij L'vovich Chebyshev's 175th anniversary. The conference was held in the main high-rise building of the Moscow State University from 14th to 19th of May 1996 and was partly sponsored by Moscow State University and the Russian Foundation of Fundamental Investigations. The Organizing Committee of the Conference was chaired by Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor N.S. Bahvalov. Among the general sections of the conference we mention the sections on approximation theory and computational mathematics. On Chebyshev's birthday (May 16th), a visit to his native land, grave and museum was organized. The excursion to the museum was very interesting because it is situated now in a country school. A special performance devoted to mathematics and Chebyshev was prepared by schoolboys and schoolgirls and their teachers. Among the participants in these events were leading and famous Russian mathematicians: the former President of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Academician Professor G.I. Marchuk and Academician Professor S.M. Nikolski. Some relatives of Chebyshev visited the conference also, and it was possible to obtain their autographs. About 280 participants attended the conference. I'd like to mention the following reports which were made to the Conference: Academician Professor N.S. Bahvalov "The use of Chebyshev polynomials in computational mathematics", Professor Y. Matiasevich "Computer evaluation of generalized Chebyshev polynomials" and the report of the author of this column: "The use of Chebyshev polynomials in the computation of special functions".

so easy, Rumik became popular very fast, especially among mathematicians, ie people Fortunately, one can make MiKTeX 2.1 able to produce russian text, without
A couple of years ago I spent a few days to russify MiKTeX 1.11. To do that, one had to download a lot of files, unzip them, apply some patches, put files in the correct places, edit some of them, run TeX a few times and so on. After I did that, I collected all the necessary files in a package, (886 KB), which was very easy to use - just downoad it, unzip in the localtexmf directory, and run initexmf dump. Since the installation procedure was so easy, Rumik became popular very fast, especially among mathematicians, i.e. people who need TeX the most. Later versions of MiKTeX contain all the necessary fonts, corrected babel, hyphenation patterns etc., so now Rumik became unnecessary. Also, because of the changing of the directory structure of MiKTeX, Rumik doesn't work with MiKTeX 2.1. Many people emailed me asking what to do. Fortunately, one can make MiKTeX 2.1 able to produce Russian text, without Rumik, in a few simple steps. Here they are.

    Great Russian Women
    Sofia Kovalevskaya
    January 15, 1850 - February 10, 1891
    Written by Becky Wilson, Class of 1997 (Agnes Scott College)
    An extraordinary woman, Sofia Kovalevskaya was not only a great mathematician, but also a writer and advocate of women's rights in the 19th century. It was her struggle to obtain the best education available which began to open doors at universities to women. In addition, her ground-breaking work in mathematics made her male counterparts reconsider their archaic notions of women's inferiority to men in such scientific arenas. Sofia Krukovsky Kovalevskaya was born in 1850. As the child of a Russian family of minor nobility, Sofia was raised in plush surroundings. She was not a typically happy child, though. She felt very neglected as the middle child in the family of a well admired, first-born daughter, Anya, and of the younger male heir, Fedya. For much of her childhood she was also under the care of a very strict governess who made it her personal duty to turn Sofia into a young lady. As a result, Sofia became fairly nervous and withdrawntraits which were evident throughout her lifetime (Perl 127-128). Sofia's exposure to mathematics began at a very young age. She claims to have studied her father's old calculus notes that were papered on her nursery wall in replacement for a shortage of wallpaper. Sofia credits her uncle Peter for first sparking her curiosity in mathematics. He took an interest in Sofia and made time to discuss numerous abstractions and mathematical concepts with her (Rappaport 564). When she was fourteen years old she taught herself trigonometry in order to understand the optics section of a physics book that she was reading. The author of the book and also her neighbor, Professor Tyrtov, was extremely impressed with her capabilities and convinced her father to allow her to go off to school in St. Petersburg to continue her studies (Rappaport 564).
