MathGate—a huge collection of annotated links compiled by specialists in the United Kingdom—delivers you to scores of math sites on topics ranging from matrix algebra to probability theory to topology. Although links to journals, societies, and departments predominate, the catalog includes several preprint archives, Web texts, a jobs board, and historical and educational sites. Drop into a site sponsored by Surrey University in the U.K., for example, to learn about the Fibonacci numbers, a series that describes natural phenomena like the number of petals on some flowers and rabbit reproduction.
