Presents for the Mathematically Minded

As Five Books, we do our best to ensure that finding a gift for that special mathematician in your life is as easy as pi! In our view, books make the best presents, and to that end here’s our list of the best mathematics books of 2019. But what’s out there beyond books?┬áLast year, we asked Professor Nick Higham (whose interview on applied mathematics has been VERY popular on our site), for some suggestions. His recommendation: stationery. As he writes in his blog, “There is a lot to be said for writing mathematics on paper, at least for early drafts.”
