Independant Lens Between the folds


A Journey through Genius

Radio Lab Numbers


Radio Lab featured a story on mathematician Paul Erdos.  He was a lonely child who taught himself math. Like Newton, he came up with his work in solitude.  Newton had a wonderful year, Annus Mirabilis.  in 1666, he worked on his theories alone away from Cambridge because it was evacuated due to the plague.
