## Bright Lights on the Horizon

##### Abstract:

What do a square-wheeled bicycle, a 17th-century French painting, and the Indiana legislature all have in common? They appear among the many bright stars on the mathematical horizon, or perhaps, more correctly in the Math[ematical] Horizons. Math Horizons, the undergraduate magazine started by the MAA in 1994, publishes articles to introduce students to the world of mathematics outside the classroom. Some of mathematicsâ€™ best expositors have written for MH over the years; here are some of the highlights from the first ten years of Horizons.
