Features

The May issue offers an unusual panorama of topics for our delectation. These include an article about Andrew Fielding Huxley, half brother of the writer Aldous Huxley, Nobel Laureate, and distinguished mathematical scientist. Also a fascinating interview with John Horton Conway. We have an article about two scions of Gettysburg College who became important presidents of the AMS. And there is a feature about geodesic springs in the Euclidean sphere. Finally, we have an Opinion Column by Congressman Jerry McNerney. --Steven G. Krantz, Editor (pp. )
