|Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty||Mathematician of the week|
Ronald Fisher (1890 - 1962)
To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more than asking hm to perform a postmortem examination: he may be able to say what the experiment died of.
Indian Statistical Congress, Sankhya, ca 1938.
Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
