However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo.
Born —[ edit ] Juan Caramuel y Lobkowitz — was a Spanish scholastic philosopher, ecclesiastic, mathematician, and writer. He was a precocious child, early delving into serious problems in mathematics and even publishing astronomical tables in his tenth year.
Blaise Pascal — was a French mathematician, physicist, and religious philosopher who wrote a treatise on vibrating bodies at the age of nine; he wrote his first proof, on a wall with a piece of coal, at the age of 11 years, and a theorem by the age of 16 years. He is famous for Pascal's theorem and many other contributions in mathematics, philosophy, and physics.
Carl Friedrich Gauss — made his first ground-breaking mathematical discoveries while still a teenager. Also at the age of 3 watched his father add up his accounts and corrected him.
In the words of E. Bell he, "read it as easily as other boys read a pirate yarn". Ignoring his teachers, he himself sought out and studied the works of Lagrange and Abel.
Ted Kaczynski born May 22,the "Unabomber", was a child prodigy who excelled academically from an early age.
Kaczynski was accepted into Harvard University at the age of 16, where he earned an undergraduate degree, and later earned a PhD in mathematics from the University of Michigan.
He became an assistant professor at the University of California, Berkeley at age 25, but resigned two years later. He has won many major awards in mathematics, including the Fields medal. At the age of 13 she became the youngest to graduate from the University of Oxford in modern times.

Finished his PhD at 20 from Princeton University. Associate Professor at Erik Demaine bornbecame an assistant professor at MIT at 20 years of age. At an age of 13, he developed a mathematical formula for perpetual calendar calculations, which also mentions historic dates observed on various types of calendars.
At an age of 15 years, he designed a low-cost artificial leg with an ability for knee and ankle movement.The Blog of Scott Aaronson If you take just one piece of information from this blog: Quantum computers would not solve hard search problems instantaneously by simply trying all the possible solutions at once.
Oct 06, · colleagues’ perceptions as to why there are so few women in an essay in The Washington Post of famous mathematicians. Tom Wolfe has chronicled American popular culture for more than three decades.
His best–selling books include The Electric Kool–Aid Acid Test, The Right Stuff, and The Bonfire of the Vanities. Catholics across the globe, from those in the pew to some of our own bishops, appear to have bought into the ideology of sexual orientation.
Many years ago, when I first started to work in the advertising industry, we used to have this thing called The Overnight Test.
It worked like this: My creative partner Laurence and I would spend the day covering A2 sheets torn from layout pads with ideas for whatever project we were currently engaged upon – an ad for a new gas oven, tennis racket or whatever.
Why Are There So Few Women Mathematicians? Topaz grew increasingly interested in understanding why women were so underrepresented in his field.
