You’ve just solved the mathematicians valentines question!
It as a fun read 👍👍
Econometrician: I don’t care about the reality of you, I’m in love with a model… 🙂
Underrated one. 🙂
For any e>0 there exists an N>0 such than m,n> N ==> |a_n-a_m|<e, that would be Cauchy.
Also analyst: You make all my Cauchy sequences converge.
(Heard at a math poetry reading at the 2013 JMMs)
Which means: You make me complete! 🙂
haha good one(s)
Very cute. Thanks!
This is great! Thanks! Reblogging 🙂

For all of you who love a numbers person, here are your Valentines <3
ps – yes, I majored in one of these fields, and worked on a masters in another one of them, so this struck all of my funny bones 😀
this is one is lit! hahaha
This was so lovely! I’m absolutely going to share this with my Calculus class on Valentine’s day!
That post gave me diabetes.

Happy Valentines Day!
Salute Ben for your creative work. I loved it.
Lovely!! It’s what math exatly means, not only in textbooks.
For “one in a million,” it works during fights, too. When I’m mad at my wife, I tell her she’s one in a million… which means there are 7,000 just like her, and she is easily replaceable. When I’m not mad at her, which is usually the case, I’m the probabilist above and pick a larger N.

Is this a bad time to mention the gender ratio in the typical math department?

I wish I found this for Valentines’ Day. My son is a math wiz and I always struggle to find meaningful gifts and cards for Valentines’ Day. These are briliant! Check out the post for ideas that you can use all year round!
Brilliant! I wish I saw this on Valentines’ day. My son would have gotten a kick out of these! I reblogged on African American Parenting. Thanks!
Thanks for sharing – I’m glad they tickled you!
This is really cool! I’m sharing many of these on my page (with due credit). I’m looking forward to reading your second book, already have the first one.
In hyperbolic geometry, wouldn’t a line have infinite parallels? In spherical (parabolic) geometry, a line would have no parallels.
Yes, indeed! So I suppose the hyperbolic geometer is saying that “you” are not a hyperbolic line.
