Fundamental Examples
Here is another nice crowdsourced resource from MathOverflow.net: a list of fundamental examples in mathematics.
http://mathoverflow.net/questions/4994/fundamentalexamples
From the premise that a single example can often shape an entire mathematical discipline, a list of such examples is generated.
The list includes examples like the harmonic series in Real and Complex Analysis; the Brachistochrone problem in Physics; the Gaussian integers in Algebra; the Platonic solids in Geometry; and the Seven Bridges of Konigsberg in Graph Theory.
This is a great resource that provides accessible entry points to a lot of advanced mathematics!
