Engines of Logic
by Martin Davis
Norton, 2001 (Paperback, 257 pages)
Martin Davis, one of the greatest living mathematicians and computer scientists, and one of the few academics supportive of my disability claim against NYU, has written a remarkable book. Taking a page from Turing's biographer, Andrew Hodges, another professional mathematician, Davis plunges into the most nonmathematical of subjects: history. When I last saw Martin Davis at NYU in 1995, he told me was working on a book about the history of logic. Around the same time, I attended a talk Davis gave at the New York Academy of Sciences. The subject was "Leibniz's Dream", also the title of this book's first chapter. Engines of Logic , originally published in hardcover under the title The Universal Machine , is the culmination of those efforts. Only one degree of separation takes us from Martin Davis to the generation of Einstein, Gödel, Turing, Mauchly, Eckert, Atanasoff, von Neumann, Church, Post and Ulam, many of whom the author met or knew personally. Martin Davis is both living history as well as writing it. He is the link between that generation and those of us working today on logic, artificial intelligence and "thinking machines."

    His Majesty's Mathematicians
    Jonathan Swift (early 18th century English writer and social critic) wrote The Marvellous Travels of Lemuel Gulliver , which, in addition to being hugely entertaining, was full of biting satire directed against English society in his time. Unlike most novelists, when he touches upon mathematical matters he is seldom wrong. Here is a passage from Gulliver's Travels , when, during the First Voyage, Gulliver is captured (when asleep) by the tiny inhabitants of the Island of Lilliput. The Reader may please to observe, that in the last Article for the Recovery of my Liberty, the Emperor stipulates to allow me a Quantity of Meat and Drink, sufficient for the support of 1728 Lilliputians . Some time after, asking a Friend at Court how they came to fix upon that determinate Number; he told me, that his Majesty's Mathematicians, having ... Can you deduce what the reasoning of his Majesty's Mathematicians was, and deduce also what a Lilliputian looked like? A PRIZE is offered for the best answer received after 31st April.

  • Bernhard Riemann was born on the 17th September 1826 in Breselenz/Dannenberg where his father was a vicar. A photo was taken of his parents' house before it was broken down. Bernhard grew up with a brother and four sisters. His childhood can generally be called a happy one, they were but suffering from the family's poverty. Some of Riemann's biographers do see malnutrition during the childhood as the reason for his, his parents, and some of his siblings early death.
    In 1833 they moved to a vicarage in Quickborn

    Questioning Mathematical Language
    In Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy some people build a supercomputer to solve the Ultimate Question. The answer? 42. Unfortunately that's wrong. The Ultimate Answer to everything and anything is linguistics . Just what is this linguistics thing? No, it's not food. That's linguine, a type of pasta best served with a light cream sauce and ham. Ché meraviglioso è, no? But this isn't the food column. Linguistics is the study of language and communication. It's not what you'd do in English class that's what they claim is grammar (By the way, the only thing I learned from school about grammar is those accursed words: "A noun is a person, place or thing." Those words shall haunt me forever.) No, linguistics concerns itself with language , not syntax! (Syntax, however is a sub-discipline of linguistics.) Linguistics can be very analytical.
    Linguistics and mathematics
    Language: just another liberal, artsy thing. Not so I'll show you how empirical and left-brainer linguistics can get. How? A mathematical proof!

    english romana
    Octav Onicescu
    Our first doctor in mathematics with the doctorate thesis in Italy appeared rather late, only in 1920. This mathematician was Octav Onicescu. Octav Onicescu is the first Romanian with the doctorate in mathematics in Rome, with the qualification "magna cum laude" in front of a commission of 11 university professors, chaired by Levi-Civita. Octav Onicescu was born on August 20, 1892 in Botosani, the town where was born and where learned the great Nicolae Iorga and close to which, at Ipotesti, was born and lived Mihai Eminescu. Onicescu was the son of Vlad Onicescu, from Stefanesti-Botosani, but his ancestors, on his father's side, come from Oniceni-Roman, Bacau county. The mother of Octav Onicescu, Ana, was from Bucovina, of Macedonean origin. His father was state official. He attended the elementary school in Botosani and also here he attended the high school "August Treboniu Laurian", one of the good, old high schools of the country, established in 1858. In this high school, which he graduated with the average grade of 10, he showed a particular interest for mathematics and philosophy. In 1911, Onicescu became student at the Bucharest University, Faculty of sciences, attending at the time the Faculty of philosophy. In 1913, after just two years of study, he took his licence in mathematics and the licence in philosophy. From 1914 to 1916 he was professor of mathematics at the military high school. During 1916-1918 he participated in the first World War.

    71. English Text04
    However, the fifth axiom, or the parallel axiom as it is generally called, had hadmany mathematicians scrambling for the answer for centuries before it became
    Human visual recognition is done through complicated calculation process which involves knowledge, concepts, and schema. When one's such process is modified, so is his or her viewpoint. This is what we have been calling in class the shift in paradigm. Whenever human beings look at an object, they have some sort of a paradigm built up in them through history, education, or experience. When people see something incomprehensible or odd, they comprehend it by revising what they have come across before. When they find it incomprehensible still, people construct new paradigm which accepts this abnormality, and that is how the world of human knowledge has developed into what it is today. Without abnormalities, mankind would still be in the Stone Age.
    return to previous page
    One of the several ways of observing human beings is to look at them as intellectual beings, or homo sapiens. Their paradigm is constructed through process of observation of objective things like nature. Therefore it can only be altered through another observation and its explanation, not by their own independent and original creativity. We tend to think how we observe things is how they really are, meaning that we always see "the truth". In other words, we are not conscious of the many possible paradigms. Let us see how much we are influenced by our paradigm.

    Biographical Information:
    Ralph Lent Jeffery (Fourth President of the CMS 1957-1961)
    Ralph Jeffery was born on October 3, 1989 in Overton, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia. He left school in the middle of Grade 8 to join his father as a fisherman. However, at age 21 he sent out to up-grade his academic qualifications and was soon Principal of Port Maitland High School. He married Nellie Churchill of Overton who encouraged him to enroll in Acadia University. Graduating in 1921 with a major in economics and having taken one course in Calculus and one in Analytic Geometry, he embarked on graduate work in mathematics at Cornell followed by a year at Harvard. Except for a leave in 1928 when he completed a Ph.D. at Cornell and one term in 1938 acting as Head of Mathematics at the University of Saskatchewan, he served as Head of Mathematics at Acadia from 1924 to 1942. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1937. Jeffery accepted the position of Head of Mathematics at Queen's University in 1942 partly in order to get closer to mathematics research activity. He encouraged good undergraduate teaching, built up a flourishing research and graduate program and served for many years as Chair of the Board of Graduate Studies. His contributions to Queen's University were commemorated in the naming of Jeffery Hall. Upon his retirement in 1960, Jeffery returned to an active teaching role at Acadia until his death in 1975. In his 85th year, he taught three full courses! His first wife died in 1956 and, in 1970, he married Frances Lewis of Bedford.
