Researchers have finally solved the cryptic deathbed puzzle renowned Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan claimed came to him in dreams. While on his death-bed in 1920, Ramanujan wrote a letter to his mentor, English mathematician G. H.

Decades years later, researchers say they’ve proved he was right – and that the formula could explain the behaviour of black […]
I love it when people get caught out trying to snow others with fake math references. Now it’s the turn of Herman Cain. Finding out that [Herman] Cain was a math major gives me the same flush of embarrassment I get when I hear that a Jew did something bad.
