Mathematics Today - July 2015

Mathematics Today is a pioneer magazine designed to cater to the needs of an IIT and engineering aspirant. The basic aim of Mathematics Today is to provide mechanisms to be used as a barometer by technical aspirants. It provides them an opportunity to get exposed to numerous complex problems which demand a high level of analytical ability and proficiency. This is one among the magazines which provides the latest pre-engineering solved papers and model test papers based on the new pattern. The levels of the questions are high enough to give your brain cells pain. In short, it is one of the best tools to tackle engineering entrance exams.

Magnificent Mistakes in MathematicsMagnificent Mistakes in Mathematics

In the nineteenth century, English mathematician William Shanks spent fifteen years calculating the value of pi, setting a record for the number of decimal places. Later, his calculation was reproduced using large wooden numerals to decorate the cupola of a hall in the Palais de la Découverte in Paris. However, in 1946, with the aid of a mechanical desk calculator that ran for seventy hours, it was discovered that there was a mistake in the 528th decimal place. Today, supercomputers have determined the value of pi to trillions of decimal places.

Mathematics and Music : Composition, Perception, and Performance
3
 
 
Mathematics and Music : Composition, Perception, and PerformanceAt first glance, mathematics and music seem to be from separate worlds—one from science, one from art. But in fact, the connections between the two go back thousands of years, such as Pythagoras’s ideas about how to quantify changes of pitch for musical tones (musical intervals). Mathematics and Music: Composition, Perception, and Performance explores the many links between mathematics and different genres of music, deepening students’ understanding of music through mathematics.

Mathematics, Poetry and Beauty

Mathematics, Poetry and BeautyWhat does mathematics have to do with poetry? Seemingly, nothing. Mathematics deals with abstractions while poetry with emotions. And yet, the two share something essential: Beauty. “Euclid alone has looked on beauty bare,” says the title of a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay.
Readership: Those interested in Mathematics, those interested in poetry, and the general public.
