## Mathematicians Of The Day

### 2nd October

On this day in 1667, Isaac Newton became a fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge. He had earned his bachelor's degree in 1665 and then spent two years at home in Lincolnshire inventing much of differential and integral calculus while Cambridge was closed due to the plague.

##### From Paul Halmos

Feller was an ebullient man, who would rather be wrong than undecided.
