Features

The February issue showcases a mixture of mathematics and mathematical culture. We have a feature article on the potential theory of the ellipsoid and another on two-person fair division of indivisible items. On the other hand, we have an article on the relationship of the National Security Agency and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. There is also a piece on the JUMP Math program for getting kids interested in math at an early age. Finally, there are the experiences of an American mathematician who spent a year in Moscow in the 1970s. --Steven G. Krantz, Editor (pp. )
