Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty Mathematician of the week

A quotation for today

Augustus De Morgan (1806 - 1871)

Every science that has thriven has thriven upon its own symbols: logic, the only science which is admitted to have made no improvements in century after century, is the only one which has grown no symbols.

Transactions Cambridge Philosophical Society, 10 (1864)
