The Thrills of Abstraction.
Halmos, P. R.
Two-Year College Mathematics Journal, v13 n4 p243-51 Sep 1982
An attempt is made to detail the nature of mathematics as perceived by mathematicians. Mathematics is viewed here as both abstract and an experimental science. The typical working mathematician is described as proceeding through problems with an attitude of discovery and examples of such an approach are given. (MP)
