Alice in Mathland

Alice in Mathland, is an entertaining and instructional 170+ page tale of Alice's journey -- with her Yellow Pig guide -- through Mathland. I wrote it for my undergraduate thesis (Sep 1999 - May 2000). The easiest way to read this -- and the only way to read it with pictures -- is as a PDF. It's also available as a single HTML file.

HTML, LaTeX, and DVI versions for each section are available via the table at right. To tex the document yourself, you will also need the class definitions.

If you have any comments about my thesis, email me. Known errata are listed here.
