"I don't believe in mathematics." ~Albert Einstein Me neither. "But there is another reason for the high repute of mathematics: it is mathematics that offers the exact natural sciences a certain measure of security which, without mathematics, they could not attain." ~Albert Einstein "Life is good for only two things, discovering mathematics and teaching mathematics." ~Simon Poisson

03E: Set theory
Introduction
Naive set theory considers elementary properties of the union and intersection operators Venn diagrams, the DeMorgan laws, elementary counting techniques such as the inclusion-exclusion principle, partially ordered sets, and so on. This is perhaps as much of set theory as the typical mathematician uses. Indeed, one may "construct" the natural numbers, real numbers, and so on in this framework. However, situations such as Russell's paradox show that some care must be taken to define what, precisely, is a set. However, results in mathematical logic imply it is impossible to determine whether or not these axioms are consistent using only proofs expressed in this language. Assuming they are indeed consistent, there are also statements whose truth or falsity cannot be determined from them. These statements (or their negations!) can be taken as axioms for set theory as well. For example, Cohen's technique of forcing showed that the Axiom of Choice is independent of the other axioms of ZF. (That axiom states that for every collection of nonempty sets, there is a set containing one element from each set in the collection.) This axiom is equivalent to a number of other statements (e.g. Zorn's Lemma) whose assumption allows the proof of surprising even paradoxical results such as the Banach-Tarski sphere decomposition. Thus, some authors are careful to distinguish results which depend on this or other non-ZF axioms; most assume it (that is, they work in ZFC Set Theory).

54: General topology
Introduction
More formally, a topological space is a set X on which we have a topology a collection of subsets of X which we call the "open" subsets of X. The only requirements are that both X itself and the empty subset must be among the open sets, that all unions of open sets are open, and that the intersection of two open sets be open. This definition is arranged to meet the intent of the opening paragraph. However, stated in this generality, topological spaces can be quite bizarre; for example, in most other disciplines of mathematics, the only topologies on finite sets are the discrete topologies (all subsets are open), but the definition permits many others. Thus a general theme in topology is to test the extent to which the axioms force the kind of structure one expects to use and then, as appropriate, introduce other axioms so as to better match the intended application. For example, a single point need not be a closed set in a topology. Does this seem "inappropriate"? Then perhaps you are envisioning a special kind of topological space, say a a metric space. This alone still need not imply the space looks enough like the shapes you may have seen in a textbook; if you really prefer to understand those shapes, you need to add the axioms of a manifold, perhaps. Many such levels of generality are possible.

Aaaaagghhh... Steve Young just put me in a full nelson!
The big hits, the slick moves, the scoring, the taunts, and the end zone dances. That's what most football lovers crave and that's what 989 Sports has delivered in the sequel to NFL Xtreme . Basically stripping down football to its most vulgar, violent, and exciting aspects, NFL Xtreme 2 is the NBA Jam of football. But then again, so is NFL Blitz A couple of years back NFL Blitz debuted in the arcades and was an instant success. It offered a new twist on the idea of exaggerated professional sports. As is the formula for success in the arcades, emphasis was taken away from strategy and focused on the action. When it came time for home console ports, NFL Xtreme tried to jump the gun on Blitz and steal the market - but it didn't quite do the job. Of course, a sequel is the just what the doctor ordered. But did they add enough this time around to beat the master?

Abel, Niels H. (1802 - 1829)
If you disregard the very simplest cases, there is in all of mathematics not a single infinite series whose sum has been rigorously determined. In other words,the most important parts of mathematics stand without a foundation.
In G. F. Simmons, Calculus Gems , New York: Mcgraw Hill, Inc., 1992, p. 188. Abel, Niels H. (1802 - 1829)
[A reply to a question about how he got his expertise:]
By studying the masters and not their pupils. Abel, Niels H. (1802 - 1829)
[About Gauss' mathematical writing style]
He is like the fox, who effaces his tracks in the sand with his tail.
In G. F. Simmons, Calculus Gems , New York: Mcgraw Hill, Inc., 1992, p. 177. Adams, Douglas (1952 - 2001)
Bistromathics itself is simply a revolutionary new way of understanding the behavior of numbers. Just as Einstein observed that space was not an absolute but depended on the observer's movement in space, and that time was not an absolute, but depended on the observer's movement in time, so it is now realized that numbers are not absolute, but depend on the observer's movement in restaurants.

    journey into a strange wilderness, where explorers often get lost." W. S. Anglin "I had a feeling once about Mathematics - that I saw it all. Depth beyond depth was revealed to me - the Byss and Abyss. I saw - as one might see the transit of Venus or even the Lord Mayor's Show - a quantity passing through infinity and changing its sign from plus to minus. I saw exactly why it happened and why the tergiversation was inevitable but it was after dinner and I let it go." Sir Winston Spencer Churchill, (1874-1965) "A formal manipulator in mathematics often experiences the discomforting feeling that his pencil surpasses him in intelligence." Howard W. Eves "One is hard pressed to think of universal customs that man has successfully established on earth. There is one, however, of which he can boast the universal adoption of the Hindu-Arabic numerals to record numbers. In this we perhaps have man's unique worldwide victory of an idea." Howard W. Eves

    Proof is an idol before whom the pure mathematician tortures himself.
    by Arthur Stanley Eddington, The Nature of the Physical World There was a young man from Trinity,
    Who solved the square root of infinity.
    While counting the digits,
    He was seized by the fidgets,
    Dropped science, and took up divinity.
    Author Unknown
    by Heinrich Hertz In the binary system we count on our fists instead of on our fingers.
    Author Unknown The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God.
    by Euclid In most sciences one generation tears down what another has built and what one has established another undoes.  In mathematics alone each generations adds a new story to the old structure.
