Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty Mathematician of the week

A quotation for today

Isaac Todhunter (1820 - 1884)

[Maxwell asked whether he would like to see an experimental demonstration of conical refraction]
No. I have been teaching it all my life, and I do not want to have my ideas upset.

Quoted in J G Crowther, The Statesmen of Science (London 1965)
