This is the inaugural issue of What's Happening in the Mathematical Sciences, an annual publication that surveys some of the important developments in the mathematical sciences over the past year or so. Mathematics is constantly growing and changing, reaching out to other areas of science and helping to solve some of the major problems facing society. Here you can read about how computers can't always be trusted to provide the right answer, how mathematics is contributing to solving environmental problems, and how mathematicians have solved a longstanding problem about the way a drum's shape affects its sound. What's Happening in the Mathematical Sciences aims to inform the general public about the beauty and power of mathematics.
