The Probability Web won't help you win in Vegas, but it is packed with handy links on chance, probability, and statistics—the bulwarks of disciplines from nuclear physics to evolutionary theory. The community site from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, offers all the familiar resources, including job and conference announcements, links to journals and societies, and a researcher directory. Teachers and students can boost their knowledge with half a dozen online texts and tutorials, ranging from a primer aimed at liberal arts majors to a treatise on advanced theory that delves into topics such as Gaussian vectors and complex spaces. For a fun break, check out what notables ranging from Aristotle to Agatha Christie have had to say about chance and probability.
