I’ve added a new page with links to certain (preprints of) articles in the Princeton Companion to Mathematics.
Ivana calls it the “Princeton Companion to Mathematicians”, because I can often be found in its company. I guess I set up this page so that those without access to the book will not be deprived of the companionship it provides 😛
I personally own a copy of this wonderful book, and would encourage anyone interested in math to buy a copy. It’s my first stop whenever I’m exploring a new area of math. The articles are very insightful, and succinctly highlight the key ideas in a field or theorem. The downside is that it’s very heavy! Even though I lugged it in my bags from Cornell to Singapore, I am now very reluctant to carry it around. Which is a pity because this resource is really worth sharing. With this page, I can now refer my friends to certain articles, rather than having them come over to my place, or bringing the book out to meet them.
