(EU Reporter)   Mathematicians around the world bust out the champagne as winners of the 2014 Fields Medals in mathematics are announced. No, seriously, this is like their New Year's or Mardi Gras or something   (eureporter.co) divider line 18

The real news is that a woman won it for the first time in its history. And she's from Iran.

Bullshiat, women can't math

There's more to life than a farkin' Fields medal.

I've heard they practice their pick up lines all year in the hopes of find a mate.

"Hey baby, I wish I was your integral so I could be the area under all your curves!"

Definite four on the street but a solid 8.5 at a mathematics conference.

"Oh, you arrogant shiat! That's why I don't come to the goddamned reunions, 'cause I can't stand that look in your eye. Ya know, that condescending, embarrassed look. You think I'm a failure. I know who I am, and I'm proud of what I do. I was a conscientious choice, I didn't fark up! And you and your cronies think I'm some sort of pity case. You and your kiss-ass chorus following you around going, "The Fields Medal! The Fields Medal!" Why are you still so farkin' afraid of failure?"

I'm all in favor of smart people leaving oppressive countries.

/Too bad she didn't come to the US. We could use more mathematicians.

What a Fields medal may look like.

I see Professor Lambeau has been covered, I have nothing else to add. That's the extent of my knowledge of the Fields Medal.

Nope. We sold it to those commies at Berkeley; it's like part of Cuba now or something.

Actually Cuba told them to take it down a few notches

My dumb. I'd only caught the part of the article saying they're honoring a group of "Europe-based mathematicians." I'd missed that she was in a different set of Fields medal winners - guess I really missed the ring on that one.

Does 1 + 1 = 2 in all possible realities? Would a different configuration of space-time produce a different result or is countability of integers the same across all universes?

Prophet of Loss: Does 1 + 1 = 2 in all possible realities? Would a different configuration of space-time produce a different result or is countability of integers the same across all universes?


In any reality, if you define '1', '+', '=', and '2' the same way, then 1+1=2 (source: Principia Mathematica).

Mathematicians have already explored a number of varying definitions of those concepts. A few have proven useful.
