Mirrored sites and math movies
We have made local copies of some
very cool multimedia math sites so that you can
enjoy fast access. Remember: red links are local (although, in this case, not
necessarily to sites created by us) while orange links take you out into the
big wide web.
Stony Brook links
- Stony Brook Math Department
- This link takes you to the departmental home page where you will be
able to find information on, amongst other things, our faculty, course
schedules, and graduate program.
- Stony Brook Home Page
- This is the university's home page. You can use it to explore the
university's libraries, calendars, departments, and much more.
Here are directions to the university as well as
maps of the campus.
- Undergraduate Bulletin
- Here is the complete on-line version of the Stony Brook undergraduate bulletin. It includes detailed listings of all undergraduate courses offered by the university, as well as faculty lists, and loads of general information.
- The Mathlab
- The Math and Applied Math departments maintain a computer laboratory
for use by students and in teaching: the mathlab. Check it out.
General math links
- This site has something for students, teachers, and parents. Follow the links to the students area where you'll find games, puzzles, and something on the wonders of math -- you can even get help with your homework!
- The MacTutor history of mathematics archive
- Here, you'll find biographies of famous mathematicians, and lots of information on historical topics, famous curves, and much, much more.
- The mathematical atlas
- You can find out about more about the different branches of mathematics -- including algebra, geomtery, number theory, dynamical systems, analysis, and much more -- at this excellent site.
- The Shodor Foundation
- This group is dedicated to the advancement of science and math education, specifically through the use of modeling and simulation technologies.
- World of mathematics
- Wolfram hosts Eric Weisstein's world of mathmatics. They claim to be "the web's most extensive mathematics resource". Check 'em out!
- DiffEQ Resource Center
- This site has loads of resources for students interested in differential equations.
- What's new in math?
- This is an archive of the AMS's "what's new in mathematics feature
column." These columns are loaded with cool info on some of the hottest
topics in modern math. They cover topics ranging from DNA computing to
differential geometry to the mathematics of Bach canons.
- Millenium prize problems
- The CMI Millennium Prize Problems focus attention on a small set of
long-standing mathematical questions, each central to mathematics, which
have resisted many years of experts's serious attempts to solve them. Have
you got any ideas?
Algebra and number theory links
- Algebra links
- Here is an excellent algebra resource -- a list of the web's most useful algebra sites.
- Abstract algebra on-line
- This site contains many of the definitions and theorems from abstract algebra, and is intended for undergraduate students taking an abstract algebra class at the junior/senior level, or for students taking their first graduate algebra course.
- Number theory web
- The Number Theory Web uses the resources of the World Wide Web to collect and disseminate online information of interest to number theorists everywhere.
- The prime page
- Find out everything you ever wanted to know about prime numbers.
Geometry and knot links
- The geometry center
- Although the geometry center at the University of Minnesotta has closed
down, this site still contains many cool images, formulas, videos,
exercises, resources, and lab materials. Some of this material can also be
found on the movies
- Euclid's Elements
- This is an excellent on-line version of Euclid's classic book.
- Knot theory
- This site has a very pretty presentation and quite a bit of mathematics.
- Math art gallery
- Mark van Hoeij's site has lots of pictures and animations of knots and fractals.
- 3D modelling
- Tom Longtin's site will teach you about knots and Hilbert cubes.
- Tie me up, tie me down
- Here is an excellent primer on Knot Theory.
- Knots on the web
- Peter Suber's page has lots and lots of links.
- Knot Movies
- We have collected several animations related to knots. Take a look!
Institutes and societies
- American Mathematical Society
- Yes, this is the home page for the American Mathematical Society.
- Institute for Advanced Study
- This is the home page for the IAS.
- Santa Fe Institute
- The Santa Fe Institute is a multi-disciplinary organization seeking to understand complex systems.
