Goedel's surprise

Mathematical surprises, a blog article by Dave Richeson. Very interesting list. I don't know how it is with you ( fellow math students ) but I often have the feeling that I know absolutely nothing about mathematics. Like today for example, even though I understood about 15 or so topics on the list of 23. Strange. - Godels incompleteness theorems ( suprise #1 and I agree ) are a major topic of the M381 Number Theory / Logic course. I am definitely looking forward to that course! - I found this article because I subscribed to some twitter accounts of mathematicians. I already was but I am now even more convinced that Twitter does have a function.

Welcome to The Bridge

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
