Mathematicians Of The Day

2nd April

Quotation of the day

From Hannes Alfvén
I have never thought that you could obtain the extremely clumpy, heterogeneous universe we have today, strongly affected by plasma processes, from the smooth, homogeneous one of the Big Bang, dominated by gravitation.
Quoted in A L Peratt, 'Dean of the Plasma Dissidents', Washington Times, supplement: The World and I (May 1988)
