From Measure Theory, by Paul R. Halmos, Van Nostrand, 1950:

"The symbol is used throughout the entire book in place of such phrases as 'Q.E.D.' or 'This completes the proof of the theorem' to signal the end of a proof."

  1. That is lovely, dark and deep.

    I wish I had seen the above first picture earlier this week.  It would have made my set design for Lady Wishforts house much easier.

    “The Way of the World” by William Congreve.  We open next Friday.

  2. hi! I’m a postgraduate student in pure mathematics too. I studied in the US but I decided to go to graduate school in the UK. It’s very different here but mathematics is mathematics no matter where you go.

    Great site. Where did you study and what area? Did you study mathematics as an undergraduate student?

    Take care.
