|Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty||Mathematician of the week|
Henri Poincaré (1854 - 1912)
Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.
La Science et l'hypothèse.
Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
