Mathematicians Of The Day

14th December

On this day in 1900, Max Planck presented his theoretical explanation involving quanta of energy at a meeting of the Physikalische Gesellschaft in Berlin. In doing so he had to reject his belief that the second law of thermodynamics was an absolute law of nature, and accept Boltzmann's interpretation that it was a statistical law.

On this day in 2013 Google released a Brahe doodle.
