Yesterday I passed my final exam and finished my degree in mathematics.

Heisenberg is stopped by a traffic cop who asks: "Do you know how fast you were going?"

Heisenberg replies: "No, but I know exactly where I am."

Why won't Heisenberg's operators live in the suburbs?

Because they don't commute.

For every epsilon > 0 there is a delta > 0 such that you can draw the graph without lifting your pencil from the paper.

Vielleicht erinnert sich der ein oder andere noch an die Plakate - "Du kannst mehr Mathe, als du denkst.",
die vor allem im vergangenen Mathe-Jahr zu sehen waren.

Heute Nachmittag bin ich beim Blättern in einer älteren Titanic-Ausgabe auf folgendes gestoßen:

Ich habe mein Diplomarbeitsthema erhalten. Ich soll folgenden mathematischen Satz
beweisen:

"Die Liebe eines Liebhabers nimmt ab wie der Kubus der Entfernung von seiner Mätresse und wie das Quadrat der Länge seiner Abwesenheit."

"Die Liebe eines Liebhabers nimmt ab wie der Kubus der Entfernung von seiner Mätresse und wie das Quadrat der Länge seiner Abwesenheit."

"A person who proves P = NP would walk home from the Clay Institute not with $1 million check but with seven
(actually six since the Poincaré Conjecture appears solved)."

from status of P versus NP

Bertrand Russel was once asked whether he believed in God.
The immediate reply was, "Yes. Up to isomorphism."

Today I read in the entertaining book of math anecdotes assembled by Steven G. Krantz that the following was scribbled on the wall of a New York City subway station: "I have just found a truly marvelous proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. But the train is coming and I don't have time to write it down."

I always feel ashamed and miserable when I read what happened during the third reich. This page about mathematicians during the third reich gives detailed information about what happened to many famous mathematicians during this inhuman time.

There is a math film called Dimensions that was made for a wide audience. I have not watched it yet, but it can be downloaded for free and the images on the web page seem very promising. Do not forget that we still have the year of mathematics.

Life is complex - it has both real and imaginary parts.

Am 26. März bringt Deutschlandradio Kultur eine Sendung über Alexander Grothendieck mit dem Titel: "Geometrie und Revolte - Die radikale Wende im Leben des Mathematikers A.G." Ein Fields-Medaillen Gewinner, der politisch sehr engagiert war, seit zwei Jahrzehnten aber völlig aus dem öffentlichen Leben verschwunden ist.

If you got a(n unknown) sequence of integers and you would like to know their meaning, then try your luck on the on-line encyclopedia of integer sequences. Probably you will get an answer or more than you expected. Do you know what 6, 0, 7, 9, 2, 7 is for?
