To Outside WorldOn this page we will give a number of links that we hope to be occasionally useful to have at hand for users of GAP, although they have nothing directly to do with the system. Most of the links go to web sites with lots of information that we believe to be kept reasonably up to date for their respective purpose.General.A potentially useful site is the wikipedia site. A fine history can be found at the St. Andrews site. Further general information can be found via the websites of mathematical societies and discussion forums. Also Andrei Marcus' Homepage contains a rich collection of links to mathematics on the web and in particular to personal homepages of group theoreticians. Mathematical and other Societies.The St Andrews 'History of Mathematics' web site by J. O'Connor and E. Robertson contains an Alphabetical List of Mathematical Societies as well as a Chronological List of Mathematical Societies. For each Society/Academy listed, there is a link to a page describing its history and at the bottom of that page you find a link to the home page of the respective Society/Academy (where it is still current). For convenience we give direct links to the home pages of a few Societies:
Also see the home page of the Association for computing Machinery (ACM) and its Special Interest Group in Symbolic and Algebraic Manipulation (ACM SIGSAM). Conferences
A general overview can be found in the
AMS Conference Calendar.

There are several adresses for discussion of mathematical questions.
People from History and Today.
The St Andrews
'History of Mathematics' web site by J. O'Connor and
E. Robertson collects cvs of many mathematicians from the past and
of a few outstanding ones of today.
Reviews and PreprintsMathSciNet is a comprehensive database covering the world's mathematical literature since 1940. It provides Web access to the bibliographic data and reviews of mathematical research literature contained in the Mathematical Reviews Database and fosters the navigation of mathematics literature by providing links to original articles and other original documents, when available. Its competitor, Zentralblatt MATH is the world's most complete and longest running abstracting and reviewing service in pure and applied mathematics. The Zentralblatt MATH Database contains more than 2.0 million entries drawn from more than 2300 serials and journals and covers the period from 1868  present by the recent integration of the Jahrbuch database (JFM). The entries are classified according to the Mathematics Subject Classification Scheme (MSC 2000). The arXiv is an eprint service in the fields of physics, mathematics, nonlinear science, computer science, and quantitative biology, operated by Cornell University.
