This month features an article about Meijer G-Functions and another about computing Catalan's constant. We feature a piece about evidence-based teaching and one that considers whether mathematical history is written by the victors. Finally, there is a memorial article for the algebraist Basil Gordon. --Steven G. Krantz, Editor (pp. )
