Mathematicians Of The Day

14th March

Because of the representation (in the US notation) of today as 3.14, today is π\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.

Quotation of the day

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