Newsflash: New largest prime number found

Earlier this week, the #GreatInternetMersennePrimeSearch (GIMPS) announced that the a new largest prime number had been found. 2^74,207,281 - 1 is a 22,338,618 digit prime number discovered by Curtis Cooper of the University of Central Missouri. If you aren't aware of #GIMPS , it is a distributed computing project in which volunteers load the software on their computers to be run in the background or during idle time for essentially brute force calculations. Since beginning in 1996, the project has increased the number of known #MersennePrimes from 34 to 49.

Free textbooks = happy holidays. *<|:o)

Free Textbooks

If you are trying to learn Maths on a budget then this may be of interest to you.

Redditor u/misplaced_my_pants points out that Springer Verlag appears to be allowing old Maths textbooks to be downloaded as pdfs for free.  The cut-off seems to be around ten years old.  Perhaps they are feeling guilty about all that money or are trying to improve their online reputation. Further investigation indicates that this offer is not limited to Maths, but a quick inspection gives no indication of how long-lived this opportunity will be, so if you're interested you should act.

u/HermannKarlovich has kindly provided a list of suggestions.  Feel free to add your own suggestions/reasons as comments.

Set Theory/Logic [ordered by approachability]

Halmos's Naive Set Theory

Moschovakis's Notes on Set Theory [Excellent first book]

Devlin's The Joy of Sets

Poizat's Model Theory [Excellent introduction to the field]

Marker's Model Theory

Jech's Set Theory [The field's current bible. Not recommended as a first textbook.]

Kanamori's The Higher Infinite

Algebra/Algebraic Geometry/Category Theory

Lang's Algebra

Hungerford's Algebra

Mac Lane's Categories for the Working Mathematician

Harris's Algebraic Geometry [Usually seen as a lead in to Hartshorne]

Hartshorne's Algebraic Geometry

Analysis/Complex Analysis

Lang's Complex Analysis

Conway's Functions of Complex Variables I and II

Lang's Real and Functional Analysis

Yay - thanks for the extra links! The powershell script on the gist works wonders. :)

Ebooks are nice and light...but harder to browse...it's hard to figure out where to begin. The OP has some suggestions, but a few more reviews and recommendations would be nice. :)

Happy new years +Charles Filipponi​, +Norman Ma​, +Matt Cholick​, and +Chris McClelland​ - may 2016 be the best one yet! ​ :)

Wendelstein 7-X update. The first plasma in the machine had a duration of one tenth of a second and achieved a temperature of around one million degrees. “We’re very satisfied”, concludes Dr. Hans-Stephan Bosch, whose division is responsible for the operation of the Wendelstein 7-X, at the end of the first day of experimentation. “Everything went according to plan.”

Damn those images are stunning and evoke a keen yearning to travel. There is a chance we'll get to the UK, Ireland, and maybe Spain this year, will have to see.

Introduction
A Few Favorite Quotes


"A ship in harbor is safe. But that is not what ships are for." 
- Rear Admiral (and Computer Scientist) Grace Hopper


"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it." 
- Gautama Buddha

"There should be no boundary to human endeavor."
- Stephen Hawking

"My undergraduate experience convinced me that I was not smart enough to be a physicist, and that computers were quite neat."
- Dennis Ritchie

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both. ” ― James A. Michener
