Math links
Here I provide some links about math and recreational math. I provide them mixed, because the difference is subtle: if you start from recreational math topics, you will find very soon high level math on the road. And if you start from "serious" math, it's not excluded you'll have a lot of fun :) Of course, this is under construction, and I'll be glad to receive other links to add to the list.

 What do symbols in your node mean?
They're Japanese ideograms I took from http://www.takase.com. They mean, respectively, Perception, Harmony and Master.
