Yale News

The Yale of the title is not the university, but rather the
mathematician Paul B. Yale. Yale's illustration of the Fano
plane is below.

A different illustration from a mathematician named Greenberg —

This illustration of the ominous phrase "line at infinity"
may serve as a sort of Deathly Hallows  for Greenberg.
According to the AMS website yesterday, he died on
December 12, 2017:

A search of this  journal for Greenberg yields no mention of
the dead mathematician, but does yield some remarks
on art that are pehaps less bleak than the above illustration.

For instance —

Reviews

From the MacTutor biography of Otto Neugebauer:

“… two projects which would be among the most important
contributions anyone has made to mathematics. He persuaded
Springer-Verlag to publish a journal reviewing all mathematical
publications, which would complement their reviewing journals
in other topics. In 1931 the first issue of 
Zentralblatt für Matematik
appeared, edited by Neugebauer.” [Mathematical Reviews  was
the other project.]

Neugebauer appeared in Sunday morning’s post In Nomine Patris .

A review from Zentralblatt  appeared in the Story Creep link from
this morning’s post Mysterious Correspondences.
