Mathematics and the people who inhabit it: this is the beginning of a nice idea (portraits of three mathematicians each with their favourite equation), though the webpage resolution does the algebra no favours, and I wish artist Lynn Hughes had taken it a bit further, I don’t know how. It very much reminds me of how the old late-60s Time-Life books – the Mathematics volume in particular – were illustrated, the lighting in the photographs as much as anything. Equations make great wall-paper, whether or not you can interpret them: and the atmosphere caught here was as much a reason I chose this as my college subject as any gift I had for it.
