Welcome to the fifty-fifth issue of De Programmatica Ipsum, about Mathematics.
In this edition:
- We explore the intricate relationship between computers and mathematics.
- In the Library section, we review “Gödel ∀ (para todos)” by Martínez and Piñeiro.
- In our Vidéothèque section, we learn how to calculate inverse square roots in 1990’s hardware.
For the first time in this magazine, not only we cover a non-English book in the Library section, but this month we have used images generated by the Bing Images Creator to decorate our articles, instead of pictures from Unsplash.
The author dedicates this issue to the two high-school teachers who sparked his lifelong interest in math: Elisa Quastler in Argentina, and Gilbert Elia in Switzerland.
We opened an account on Mastodon last year: follow us at @email@example.com to be notified of new releases!
We would also like to thank our patrons who generously contribute every month (or have contributed in the past) to our work and help us run this magazine. Thank you so much! In alphabetical order: Adam Guest, Adrian Tineo Cabello, Benjamin Sheldon, Christopher Nascone, Jean-Paul de Vooght, Patryk Matuszewski, Paul Hudson, Quico Moya, Roger Turner, and Szymon Licau.
