Our articles this month have a bent toward algebra and number theory, with a bit of logic and physics thrown in. The piece on topical bias has something to say to all of us. The subjects range from the very classical (Ramanujan and Gödel) to the very modern (cell phone technology and journal editing and gravitational lensing). One of the beauties of mathematics is that its ideas are timeless.
