Thales of Miletus
Born: about 624 BC in Miletus, Asia Minor (modern day Turkey)
Died: about 547 BC in Miletus, Asia Minor (modern day Turkey)
He was a pre-Socratic philosopher, who specialized in geometry. After being a merchant toward the beginning of his life, his interests shifted to astronomy, then to philosophy, and then to mathematics. Thales calculated the height of the Great Pyramid in Egypt with the sun and a stick. He is also known for his five geometric theorems that state (1) a closed angle circumscribed in a semicircle is a right angle, (2) a diameter bisects a circle, (3) if two sides of a triangle are equal then their bases are equal and vice versa (the definition of an isosceles triangle), (4) the vertical angle theorem, and (5) the theorem for similar triangles: if two triangles have equal angles, then any ratio of corresponding sides has the same value as any other (which is the basis for trigonometry). No direct writings are attributed to him, for they may have been lost or his findings were only recorded by others.

AMS Preprint Server (AMSPPS)
Summary: The AMS Preprint Server (AMSPS) is a service of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), which was created to "...further mathematical research and scholarship....It has approximately 30,000 members, including mathematicians throughout the United States and around the world." The mission of AMS is to "...promote mathematical research, increase the awareness of its value to society, and foster excellence in math education..." and to serve as a major math publisher. At the top of the site are three major links: (1) recent preprints (last 100); (2) browse preprints; and (3) search preprints. The first link produces a listing of the last added 100 preprints, in no particular order. Scrolling to view the listings, users will find the following in entries: (1) author(s); (2) title; (3) preprint code number; and (4) a link to view an abstract of the text. "Browse preprints" lists preprints based on the Mathematics Subject Classification; each category is noted with a description and code number. Selecting a category then produces an index of its presective holdings; users can view all of the category's listings, as well as a chronological listing of preprints. Selecting the "index" link allows the user to view all of the category's holdings; selecting a date allows viewing of one preprint's entry. "Search preprints" produces a query page with a keyword field, as well as searching instructions.
