Nobel Prizes: Why is There no Nobel Prize in Mathematics?

The Nobel Prize Internet Archive offers a few explanations for why there is no Nobel Prize in mathematics. One explanation involves a woman...but after presenting evidence from the sci.math newsgroup's FAQ list, the author concludes that this is not a viable explanation and instead suggests that Nobel "did not create a prize in mathematics simply because he was not particularly interested in mathematics or theoretical science." Visitors to the website are invited to offer their own explanations and commentaries, which are also posted on this website.
