Green Fields

Filed under: General,Geometry — m759 @ 9:00 PM

Some narrative  notes in memory of a
Bowling Green State University math professor
who reportedly died at 72 on Feb. 13— 

That date in this journal and Green Fields.

See also Nine is a Vine.

Those who prefer mathematics to narrative may 
also prefer to read, instead of the notes above,
some material on the dead professor's specialty,
Diophantine equations. Recommended:
Mordell on Lang and Lang on Mordell as well as
Lang's article titled

"Mordell's Review, Siegel's Letter to Mordell,
Diophantine Geometry, and 20th Century Mathematics
."

“ ‘A babbled of green fields
— Phrase attributed to Shakespeare
quoted here on September 15th

From a New York Times  piece online today,
a quote promoting science and technology,
and a quote on aptitude :

the   STEM fields   (“STEM” being the current shorthand
for “science, technology, engineering and mathematics”),
which offer so much in the way of job prospects, prestige,
intellectual stimulation and income….

… scientific and mathematical aptitude at
the very highest end of the spectrum ….

From a post of June 9, 2013 :

… the MAA Spectrum  program —

The "green fields" is from Shakespeare.

The above author, Vinton Adams Dearing, died* on April 6, 2005. From this journal on that date, some babbling.
