THIS SUNDAY APRIL 9 ZOOM SOCIAL “The Poetry of George Boole”
Three of Martin Gardner's books dealt with verse and poetry ("Oddities and Curiosities of Words and Literature", "Best Remembered Poems", and "Martin Gardner's Favorite Poetic Parodies"), and he even published some rhymes under the alias Armand T. Ringer.
Many notable mathematicians from the past also wrote poetry, including George Boole and William R. Hamilton. This Sunday, join us when Boole biographer Des MacHale treats us to some of “The poetry of George Boole”.
