Math educators and aficionados may be interested in Celebratio Mathematica, an open-access digital publication that "celebrates mathematics and related fields, and their people." Visitors to this project will find extensive information on the lives and work of nearly thirty noteworthy mathematicians (as of this write-up), with each person's entry organized into an "enhanced guide to [their] collected works." These digital volumes include such figures as David Blackwell, "an eminent statistician who specialized in probability and game theory," and Emmy Noether, a pioneer in abstract algebra and the namesake of several influential concepts. Each volume contains a collection of biographical narratives (sometimes in the mathematician's own words), a bibliography of their published work, commentaries by other mathematicians on the significance of their work, information on their graduate students, and more. For anyone curious about the careers of prominent twentieth-century mathematicians, this project is a valuable resource. Celebratio Mathematica was conceived by Robion C. Kirby and James W. Pitman, both professors of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley and published by MSP (Mathematical Sciences Publishers), a nonprofit scholarly publisher.
