The infinite! No other question has ever moved so profoundly the spirit of man, no other idea has so fruitfully stimulated his intellect, yet no other concept stands in greater need of clarification than that of the infinite .... - David Hilbert (1862 - 1943) Infinity is a fathomless gulf, There is a story attributed to David Hilbert, the preeminent mathe into which all things matician whose quotation appears above. A man walked into a vanish. hotel late one night and asked for a room. "Sorry, we don't have o Marcus Aurelius (121- 180), Roman Emperor any more vacancies," replied the owner, "but let's see, perhaps and philosopher I can find you a room after all" Leaving his desk, the owner reluctantly awakened his guests and asked them to change their rooms: the occupant of room no. 1 would move to room no. 2, the occupant of room no. 2 would move to room no. 3, and so on until each occupant had moved one room over. To the utter astonish ment of our latecomer, room no. 1 suddenly became vacated, and he happily moved in and settled down for the night. But a numbing thought kept him from sleep: How could it be that by merely moving the occupants from one room to another, the first room had become vacated? (Remember, all of the rooms were occupied when he arrived.

"And what is the use," thought Alice, "of a book without pictures or conversations in it?" -Lewis Carroll This book is written for modem undergraduate students - not the ideal stu dents that mathematics professors wish for (and who occasionally grace our campuses), but the students like many the author has taught: talented but ap preciating review and reinforcement of past course work, willing to work hard, but demanding context and motivation for the mathematics they are learning. To suit this audience, the author eschews density of topics and efficiency of presentation in favor of a gentler tone, a coherent story, digressions on mathe maticians, physicists and their notations, simple examples worked out in detail, and reinforcement of the basics. Dense and efficient texts play a crucial role in the education of budding (and budded) mathematicians and physicists. This book does not presume to improve on the classics in that genre. Rather, it aims to provide those classics with a large new generation of appreciative readers. This text introduces some basic constructs of modern symplectic geometry in the context of an old celestial mechanics problem, the two-body problem. We present the derivation of Kepler's laws of planetary motion from Newton's laws of gravitation, first in the style of an undergraduate physics course, and x Preface then again in the language of symplectic geometry. No previous exposure to symplectic geometry is required: we introduce and illustrate all necessary con structs.

Der Nauman Lewis Carroll is nur a Pseudonym. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson woa der richtige Nauman vom literarischn Votern der Alice; er woa Dozent fir Mathe am Christ Church College in Oxford. Dieser Dodgson hot mit dera Gschicht am 4. Juli 1862 bei aner Ruaderpartie auf der Themse in Oxford augfaungt. Mit von dera Partie woan der Pfoarrer Robinson Duckworth, de zehnjährige Alice Liddell - a Tochter vom Dekan von der Christ Church - mit ihre zwa Schwestern Lorina, 13, und Edith, 8 Joa. Wia ma aus dem Gedicht am Aufaung von dem Biachl spitzkriagt, haum de drei Madln den guatn Dodgson um a Gschicht bitt, und zerscht amoi eher widerwillig hot er damit augfaungt, dass er eana de erschte Version von der Alice erzöht. Es gibt im Text von dem schliesslich im Joa 1865 veröffentlichtn Biachl vüle versteckte Aunspühlungan auf olle fünf Personan. Des Wienerische is a ost-mittelbairischer Dialekt, reich aun Lehn- und Fremdwerter ausm Behmnischn, Italienischn, Lateinischn, Ungarischn, Frenzesischn und Jiddischn. Es is a mehrschichtiger Dialekt mit an gehobanan Stü, wiar er am Habsburger-Hof und von de Odelign gredt wurn is ('Schön brunner Wienerisch'), ober aa an Oitogsstü, wiar er im Gschäftslebn und bei de eher afocheren Leit bei ihrer Oabeit oder ihre sunstign Aktivitätn Verwendung gfundn hot. De Ibersetzung vom Hans Werner Sokop - de ollererschte auf Wienerisch - is Teu aner traditionelln Mundoat dicht ung, zu der insbesondere de berühmtn Autorn Josef Weinheber und H. C. Artmann zöhn. Sokop hot z.B. aa 'Die Göttliche Komödie' auf Hochdeitsch sowie 'Max und Moritz', 'Der Struwwelpeter', und 'Der kleine Prinz' auf Wienerisch ibersetzt. --- Lewis Carroll is a pen-name: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was the author's real name and he was lecturer in Mathematics in Christ Church, Oxford. Dodgson began the story on 4 July 1862, when he took a journey in a rowing boat on the river Thames in Oxford together with the Reverend Robinson Duckworth, with Alice Liddell (ten years of age) the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, and with her two sisters, Lorina (thirteen years of age), and Edith (eight years of age). As is clear from the poem at the beginning of the book, the three girls asked Dodgson for a story and reluctantly at first he began to tell the first version of the story to them. There are many half-hidden references made to the five of them throughout the text of the book itself, which was published finally in 1865. Viennese German is an East Middle Bavarian dialect, which has borrowed words from Czech, Italian, Latin, Hungarian, French, and Yiddish. It is a rich dialect, having an elevated style spoken at the Court of the Habsburgs and by the nobles ('Schönbrunner Wienerisch') as well as an every-day style used by tradesmen and less savoury characters for thier tools and activities. Hans Werner Sokop's translation-the first ever in Viennese German-is part of a tradition of dialect writing which includes the famous poets Josef Weinheber and H. C. Artmann. Sokop has also translated 'Max und Moritz', 'The Struwwelpeter', and 'The Little Prince' into Viennese German, as well as 'The Divine Comedy' into Standard German.

During the summer of 1990, while taking my holidays to teach a university course of physics for elementary teachers, I also tutored one of the tenth-grade students at my school in physics, chemistry, and mathematics. In return for working with him for free, I had requested permission to audiotape our sessions; I wanted to use the transcripts as data sources for a chapter that I had been in vited to write. It so happened that I discovered and read Jean Lave's Cognition in Practice that very summer, which inspired me to read other books on mathe matics in everyday situations. Two years later, while conducting a study with my teacher colleague G. Michael Bowen on eighth-grade students' learning during an open-inquiry ecology unit, I discovered these students' tremendous data analysis skills that appeared to be a function of the deep familiarity with the objects and events that they had studied and mathematized earlier in the unit. I reported my findings in two articles, 'Mathematization of experience in a grade 8 open-inquiry environment: An introduction to the representational practices of science' and 'Where is the context in contextual word problems?: Mathematical practices and products in Grade 8 students' answers to story problems'. I Begin ning with that study, I developed a research agenda that focused on mathemati cal knowing in science and science-related professions. During the early 1990s, I was also interested in the notion of authentic practice as a metaphor for planning school science curriculum.
