Meep's Math Writings

I got into math not because of any math I learned at school, but because of books like the collected "Mathematical Games" columns of Martin Gardner, the logic puzzles of Raymond Smullyan, and Godel, Escher, Bach, the catalyst for my first mystical intellectual experience. As time has gone on, and I've gotten degrees in math, read lots of math books, taught and taken math classes, and generally just mucked about with odd math thoughts, I thought I would share some of the things I know about math, and link to some very good sources on math.

I would one day like to write a series of math books called The Strange Worlds of Math, treating such topics as fractals, infinity, paradoxes, and probability. I am amassing material as we speak. But, in lieu of completed books, I give you individual math musings from my journal, reviews of math books, and links to links to links.
