Tracing the development of mathematics from a biographical standpoint, ""Mathematics Frontiers: 1950 to the Present"" profiles innovators from the second half of the 20th century who made significant discoveries in both pure and applied mathematics.

From John H. Conway, who helped complete the classification of all finite groups (and invented ""The Game of Life"" board game), to Stephen Hawking, who established the mathematical basis for black holes, to Fan Chung, who developed an encoding and decoding algorithm for cell phone calls, this lively survey of contemporary minds behind the math is ideal for middle and high school students seeking resources for research or general interest.
