This site contains several hundred articles concerned with mathematics and physics. General topics include Number Theory, Combinatorics, Geometry, Algebra, Calculus & Differential Equations, Probability & Statistics, Set Theory & Foundations, Reflections on Relativity, History, and Physics. The articles under each general heading are highly varied, many are quite advanced, and there is no apparent organizational scheme. For example, under Calculus & Differential Equations there is a proof that pi is irrational, a examination of the Limit Paradox, a discussion of Ptolemy's Orbit, and an historical review of the cycloid among many other articles. Visitors can browse by topics or search by keyword. (Anyone with information on the identity of the site author please contact the MERLOT submitter.)
