ETGAR-GILYONOT MATEMATIKA was a periodical for mathematically oriented high-school students published by the Mathematics Departments of the Weizmann Institute and/or the Technion and/or the University of Haifa.
Among its editors were J. Gillis Z"L (Weizmann), Avi Berman, Zvi Har'El Z"L, Eliahu Levy and Ron Holzman (Technion), and in the last years Shay Gueron (Haifa Univ.).
Our hope is to post here articles that appeared in ETGAR-GILYONOT MATEMATIKA (and maybe new articles too, contributed by the interested community).
Etgar Hadash - Net-Gar
- an online new Etgar.
(A booklet of articles which I wrote there: pdf. Re the article there about pi: see also Jonathan M. Borwein and Scott T. Chapman's talk for pi's day, with references to more proofs for (Euler's) famous formula for the sum of the series of the reciprocals of the squares of the natural numbers.)
There, or here, one can find old ETGAR-GILYONOT MATEMATIKA issues scanned by the Israel Mathematical Union.
