This month we celebrate the 125th anniversary of the remarkable Srinivasa Ramanujan. To commemorate the event, there is a four-part article about different aspects of his life and ideas. We also have features about Leibniz's ideas in calculus, and about tetrahedral packing. The Opinion Column on the math gene should strike a familiar chord with many readers. As usual, we round things out with the Doceamus and Scripta Manent columns. --Steven G. Krantz, Editor (pp. )
