After rave reviews for last year's issue of What's Happening, volume 2 has been eagerly awaited. ``Very well written,'' said one reader of volume 1. ``The writing is brilliant, positively brilliant.'' ``A terrific publication,'' said another. ``This is a wonderful tool for showing people what mathematics is about and what mathematicians can do.'' One reader called it ``a must for all mathematics department reading and coffee lounges.'' Volume 2 of What's Happening features the same lively writing and all new topics. Here you can read about a new class of solitons, the contributions wavelets are making to solving scientific problems, how mathematics is improving medical imaging, and Andrew Wiles's acclaimed work on Fermat's Last Theorem. What's Happening is great for mathematics undergraduates , graduate students, and mathematics clubs---not to mention mathematics faculty, who will enjoy reading about recent developments in fields other than their own. Highlighting the excitement and wonder of mathematics, What's Happening is in a class by itself.
