S9.312 - Over Board



"Lemmata" is an acceptable plural for "lemma" (which is like a mini-theorem). Hence, "Hakuna" (from Swahili, there is not) and "Lemma" (from Greek, something is assumed). Assume nothing!

With another shout-out to Tessie there, know that recently, pentagon tiling has solved a century old math problem. The other big math news this week: Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to win the Fields medal, died from cancer. Cancer sucks.

<<FIRST <LAST WK INDEX NEXT WK> END>>

PARA: We’ve found that publicity bulletin board Tessie mentioned.
NIS: Seems to be for elective courses.
QLOGAN: Hmm... tape our flyer up anyway.
 (Flyer: Come to Math for Equality!)
HYPER: Hey...
HYPER: ...someone trying to get our attention here?
 (Flyer Piece: Geography. Home of AnaLEMMA. Hint, hint.)
PARA: What are they trying to prove?
QLOGAN: Hakuna lemmata?

  1. I would like "Come to Math for Equality" to be our official field slogan, please.

    1. I am glad it resonated! Alas, I don't have the pull to do much aside from put it out there. (For rings and fields testing?) Thanks for the comment. :)
