Banach’s Birthday

“A mathematician is a person who can find analogies between theorems; a better mathematician is one who can see analogies between proofs and the best mathematician can notice analogies between theories. One can imagine that the ultimate mathematician is one who can see analogies between analogies.”

— Stefan Banach, according to MacTutor.

The quotation is perhaps taken from Through a Reporter’s Eyes: The Life of Stefan Banach, by Roman Kauza (a.k.a. Roman Kaluza).

“What we today call ‘Banach spaces’
are called
‘spaces of type (B)’
in Banach’s book.”
Sheldon Axler
