Jim Simons: another mathematical master and brightest billionaire !!


Just sharing this AMS blog, one of the best motivational, living legends of Mathematics and its applications in minting money..

With lots of regards to Prof. Jim Simons, and AMS blogger, Jacob Gross — from Nalin Pithwa.

PS: I hope/wish such motivational examples exist in India also…It would be a great service to Indian mathematics..

Paul Erdos, Mathematics, Russia and USA:

It is true …universally, including India…

Hats off to the “Intellect of the Wise Mathematicians”, late, adorable professor of mathematics, Paul Erdos.

— humble tribute …from Nalin Pithwa.

Paul Erdos, most profound quote ever made by any mathematician

An Irish lady mathematician :-) :-) :-)


Hats off to Synges!

from Nalin Pithwa.

Motivation: Zakir Hussainji on tabla; horse running

This comes from real “sadhana”. I think I had read somewhere that Zakir Hussain used to get up at 2:00 am in the morning to do “riyaaz” with his father Ustad Allah Rakha.

The same kind of passion, spirit and “sadhana”/tapasya are required to do real mathematics or to acquire “siddhi”.

I was wondering if Prof. Manjul Bhargava too could play such stuff on his tabla. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Hats off to “the” tabla maestro and another a “Fields” medalist-cim-tabla player.

Just sharing for motivation towards math especially…

Math for Love: Daniel Finkel way !!! :-) :-) :-)

A math blog, I would request my students/readers to read and solve/contribute regularly:



Thanks Dan for allowing me to share your blog(s)/website(s)!
