In this post, you will find great Mathematical Quotes from famous people, such as Steven Strogatz, Alexander Grothendieck, Terence Tao, E. T. Bell, Stephen Cole Kleene. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
Some people are better at maths than others: no one thinks you can be ‘taught‘ to be a mathematical genius. And no one thinks of teaching, in that context, as a kind of forcing of the will. But there seems to be an idea of writing as an intuitive pastime which is being dishonestly subjected to counterintuitive methods.
I remember from my school days Archimedes jumping into his bath and displacing water and coming up with his famous principle, and of course Isaac Newton being hit on the head with an apple. In other words, this realm of human knowledge – which is mathematical, essentially – can have a playful visual element to it.
There has to be a mathematical explanation for how bad that tie is.
The special sphere of finance within economics is the study of allocation and deployment of economic resources, both spatially and across time, in an uncertain environment. To capture the influence and interaction of time and uncertainty effectively requires sophisticated mathematical and computational tools.
Game theory is a branch of, originally, applied mathematics, used mostly in economics and political science, a little bit in biology, that gives us a mathematical taxonomy of social life, and it predicts what people are likely to do and believe others will do in cases where everyone’s actions affect everyone else.
The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God.
I actually wanted to be an astronaut, but I don’t have a mathematical brain.
