Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty | Mathematician of the week |

**Norbert Wiener** (1894 - 1964)

The modern physicist is a quantum theorist on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and a student of gravitational relativity theory on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. On Sunday he is neither, but is praying to his God that someone, preferably himself, will find the reconciliation between the two views.
