Herbert Robbins is widely recognized as one of the most creative and original mathematical statisticians of our time. The purpose of this book is to reprint, on the occasion of his seventieth birthday, some of his most outstanding research. In making selections for reprinting we have tried to keep in mind three potential audiences: (1) the historian who would like to know Robbins' seminal role in stimulating a substantial proportion of current research in mathematical statistics; (2) the novice who would like a readable, conceptually oriented introduction to these subjects; and (3) the expert who would like to have useful reference material in a single collection. In many cases the needs of ...

What Is Mathematics?

For more than two thousand years a familiarity with mathematics has been regarded as an indispensable part of the intellectual equipment of every cultured person. Today, unfortunately, the traditional place of mathematics in education is in grave danger. The teaching and learning of mathematics has degenerated into the realm of rote memorization, the outcome of which leads to satisfactory formal ability but does not lead to real understanding or to greater intellectual independence. This new edition of Richard Courant's and Herbert Robbins's classic work seeks to address this problem. Its goal is to put the meaning back into mathematics. Written for beginners and scholars, for students and t...

Earth, Air, Fire, and Water

This memoir chronicles the life of Mary Susannah Robbins_poet, activist, and devoted daughter of famous mathematician Herbert E. Robbins. Her antiwar activism, beginning with her experiences during the Vietnam War and continuing into the present with the Iraq War, has given her a perspective from which to tell a unique story of American life. Her childhood having been spent surrounded by such luminaries of the twentieth century as Albert Einstein, Aldous Huxley, and Alan Lomax, Robbins writes of the early influence that her parents and their colleagues had on her later call to activism in the 1960s. She discusses the relationships that guided her to become involved with various antiwar movements. Her personal reflections within this book form a powerful tribute to the many lives that have touched and been touched by her.
