Pretty Cool

Last week, I was looking through the news and I came across an interesting article in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The math professor I had for differential equations and linear algebra (my last math class, ever) last semester and another math researcher have uncovered solutions to some very complicated math formulae, the mock theta functions. I say: good for her.

She'll stand out in my mind for giving a rather difficult and abstract math final that had the class laughing in despair upon first opening the booklets, but she is evidently very good at what she does. The neat thing about college is that the professors are experts in their subject.
