    I'll say pythagoras' cus it's the only one I know.

    On a related note though, has anyone come across a book called engineering mathematics? It was recommended to me and I'm thinking of buying it.
    Yes I have.

    It is pretty good with Engineering, Mathematics and related courses.

    Look on google and read the reviews to be honest.

    Who doesn't enjoy a bit of the Saccheri-Legendre Theorem..? You could say it's Legendre-y.





    Sorry, I tried to be funny too. :erm:

    Don't go.
    Reems, man (Riemann), I need to go. I'm not that Hardy, but some resistance to rot is necessary, however little. Woodn't you agree? Wiles I've still got time I need to escape and re-Fermat my life. Stay on the Internet? Eu-clidding me! People sometimes need to stop being thinkers and start being doers; eu-lerning?

    To be topical: my life lacks both magnitude and direction.

    Vectors cost me nine marks and maybe my place at uni. See I was thinking about the dot product and stuff, but all I need to do is visualise it was a triangle I needed and its just basic idea of a projection onto a line.

    I would like to think that if I didn't have a two hours Psychology exam before that and I wasen't distracted from the noisy voices of children playing in a playground I would have figured it out. Certainly, I should have thought back a few days ago when my FM teacher was explaining it.

    P.S. If I fail to get an A in maths which is extremely unlikely then I will say the title of this thread before it got changed.

    Let me take a Gauss, the internet Cantor but help turn you into a Bohr and you want to Descartes and Goldbach to your Godel life?

    This is both wonderful and a little bit tragic.

    Neu, mann: I need a Newton of outlook; I'm not Abel to achieve Noether perfection nor a "Cauchy" lifestyle, but Poisson the time constructively is Dedekind of thing I'm looking for.
