Mathematics into the Twenty-First Century

Eagle-eyed Peter Woit spotted an interesting volume on AMS Books Online: a collection of survey articles called Mathematics into the Twenty-First Century. The papers were originally presented at a conference in 1988 held in honor of the AMS’ 100th anniversary. Collectively they provide a picture of the frontier of mathematical research.

AMS Books Online has also added a three-volume history of American mathematics to its General interest section.
