[Video] - Why Pi?

Why Pi? is the title of Don Knuth’s 16th Annual Christmas Tree Lecture. Don Knuth is a famous computer scientist and the designer and programmer of TeX. The first book I seriously self-studied was Concrete Mathematics by Knuth, Ron Graham and Patashnik with beautiful stuff on the Fibonacci series, the Pascal triangle, combinatorial identities, generating functions and numbers and divisibility. It's a beautiful book. I haven't watched the ( entire ) lecture yet, i parked it on my watch-queue.

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.)
