Some Useful Resources

I'm in the middle of updating the references on this page. I know that some of them are wildly out of date. I hope to have it completely done by the end of 2016. Including fixing the colours. Sorry about that.

Note: the web is a fluid place. Web sites come and web sites go. Although I will try to keep this page up-to-date, please let me know if a link is no longer active. Send me an email by copying everything in quotes into your email program: "andrea dot mcphee at tdsb dot on dot ca". Change the word "dot" to an actual dot, at to @, and remove the spaces.

Obviously, this page is a work in progress. I will keep adding to it as time goes on, so check back every now and then.

I know what you're thinking: she's listing books - how quaint. Just remember that anyone (including me) can put anything on a webpage, and wikipedia has many (uncaught) mistakes. Books usually have to go through a slightly more rigorous fact-checking process (Dan Brown notwithstanding), they're portable, and easily read in a power outage (as long as you have a flashlight or the sun).

    Note: Mathematically, chaos is not random disorder. It is determinate disorder. Try that one out on your parents.

    Topology is about how coffee cups are equivalent to doughnuts and tiling. Ask me to tell you my topologist joke.
