This book presents the papers arising from the ICMI study seminar on the popularization of mathematics held at the University of Leeds, UK, 17–22 September 1989. The event was organized in conjunction with a highly successful touring exhibition known as the 'Pop Maths Roadshow'. Inspired by the discussion document prepared by Howson, Kahane and Pollak, the symposium consisted of three plenary sessions discussing the problems faced in the popularization through particular media. Members were present from a variety of backgrounds and discussion groups were devoted to specific themes, such as the image of mathematicians, TV and films, and mathematics in different cultures.
