The January issue explores a number of important themes---mathematical, educational, and political. These include hypergeometric functions, the class group of a real quadratic field, the National Security Agency and security issues, and the common core standards in geometry. There is also a fascinating history of the Steklov Institute. Our Doceamus this month is about active learning in math courses. Happy reading. --Steven G. Krantz, Editor (pp. )
