## Mathematicians Of The Day

### 14th March

Because of the representation (in the US notation) of today as 3.14, today is $\pi$ day. It was first celebrated in California in 1988 and in 2009 the US House of Representatives gave it official recognition. Caltech students get up early (or stay up late) to consume pies at 1.59 am.

On this day in 2003 Google released an Einstein doodle and on this day in 2018 they released a Pi day doodle.

The postage stamp of one of today's mathematicians at THIS LINK was issued in 1956.

##### From Albert Einstein

Nature hides her secrets because of her essential loftiness, but not by means of ruse.
