From: elecyq#NoSpam.leonis.nus.sg (Chen YangQuan) NAME: Humor on Control Systems DESCRIPTION: Mathematical Cartoons, not just control systems. Below follows the official description: 'Control' is being said an "experimental subject" (see, for example, D. S. Bernstein, "Control Experienments and What I learned From Them: A Personal Journey", IEEE Control Systems, vol. 18, no. 2, pp. 8188) although only the applied mathematics motivated papers can be published in top international journals. Therefore, humor accurs. Here is a collection of controlrelated humors published in the IEEE Control Systems Magzine from 19841994 under the column of "Out of Control". Unfortunately, this column is seemingly a disturbance (periodical or, repetitive:) and thus was rejected by Control Systems since 1995. I enjoyed those humors and I believe that humor implies creativity. MEDIUM: Journal: IEEE Control Systems Magazine 19841994, column "Out of Control" NOTE: Connection timed out at check on March 4, 2001

From rickey#NoSpam.math.bgsu.edu (From his disappeared Bibliography of Humor in Mathematics page) Azzonlino, Aggie; Silvey, Linda; and Hughes, Barnabas, editors, Mathematics and Humor, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 1978. DESCRIPTION: This collection of cartoons is a real gem. Old math jokes and lots of new ones. There is everything from "Tom Swifties" (e.g., "Proofs are necessary," reasoned Tom.) to the new book shelf (e.g., 10,000,000 Random Numbers Arranged in Ascending Order). Every teacher should have a copy of this! MEDIUM: Book.

Special Category: Euclid/Euclides From rickey#NoSpam.math.bgsu.edu (From his disappeared Bibliography of Humor in Mathematics page) NAME: Birdwood, Wilbur P., Euclid's Outline of Sex, Henry Holt and Co., 1922. DESCRIPTION: I know you won't believe this, but I found this by accident! Was browsing the math section of a used book store in Berkeley and the next section was on Sex. This was right between them. It's a Freudian interpretation of Euclid. MEDIUM: Book

From rickey#NoSpam.math.bgsu.edu (From his disappeared Bibliography of Humor in Mathematics page) NAME: Moritz, Robert Edouard, Memorabilia Mathematica; or the Philomath's Quotation Book, reprinted by the Mathematical Association of America. DESCRIPTION: Anecdotes, aphorisms, and quotations from famous mathematicians. Dover has reprinted this as "On Mathematics and Mathematicians." It is the classic book of quotations about mathematics. A delightful book of quotations. You can find one here for any aspect of mathematics. MEDIUM: Book

From rickey#NoSpam.math.bgsu.edu (From his disappeared Bibliography of Humor in Mathematics page) NAME: O'Brien, Katherine, Excavation and Other Verse, The Antheonsen Press, 1967. DESCRIPTION: Some of these poems are mathematical. I like "Einstein and the icecream cone," "Valentine," and "Undefined Terms," but my favorite is "Aftermath" which deals with what happens to a mathematicians library after they die: "Now Hardy's a treasure and Banach a pleasure / and the Knopps a delight for the mind." Rich allusions indeed for those who have read their books. MEDIUM: Book
