He said softly, “I don’t see the point of us meeting.”
The conversation had essentially ended at that point. It was a complex point. An awkward social moment in time.
Very likely he wouldn’t accept a gift of million dollars.
The Riemann Zeta Function.
It was a clopen topic to him; you see, it hadn’t anything to do with Mathematics proper.
Nerds, mathematicians, lovers of all things circular today celebrate Pi Day, the day that honors π, one of the world’s most mysterious inspiring infinite mathematical constants. Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 at 1:59:26 p.m., the date and time which corresponds to the first eight digits of π, or 3.1415926. π . It, March 14th is, also, the birth day of a German physicist. Those nerds like to think that they might figure out some of those mysteries, like that guy who’s birthday is March 14th, 1879.
By the way, if you don’t remember π can be approximated, but never represented by anything finite, by:
For it’s a transcendental number.
What is life?
That was the question he posed to himself.
No, he wasn’t asking the simple, vague, ill-posed, question: what those fuzzy, sloppy thinking Philosophers often try to talk about in volumes of words.
He was, in his mind, asking a precise question. A scientific question. For to answer this question, he had to ask the immediately deductible question: What is life, Not? Both questions are difficult to answer — precisely.
But he wanted to answer, What is life?, precisely, and he did give an answer: in his last book before he died.
But, there were critics of his work, although the vast majority are ignorant of his work.
An unnamed critic remarked: “The trouble with you, Rosen, is you’re always trying to answer questions that nobody wants to ASK!“
