Mathematics is an amazing and beautiful intellectual creation, one
of the human race's deepest endeavors. The world around us, and the
future world we are creating, is woven through with mathematics—from
the symmetry groups of Navajo weavings, to the airflow around a
flapping bird’s wing, to the security of global computer
networks. Topology, geometry, prime numbers, probability. Mathematics
is full of unsolved problems and mind-bending concepts and the Mathematics
Department at Dartmouth is a place to learn about and investigate
