Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty
A quotation for today

Henri Lebesgue (1875 - 1941)

In my opinion, a mathematician, in so far as he is a mathematician, need not preoccupy himself with philosophy -- an opinion, moreover, which has been expressed by many philosophers.

Scientific American 211 (September 1964)
