It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store.It was much helpful for me to know about What is Pythagorean Theorem and all stuffs related to it .Thanks for this nice blog.What is Pythagorean Theoremhttp://math.tutorvista.com/geometry/pythagorean-theorem.htmlnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5303246073824127471.post-52476031365009250222011-04-20T15:13:01.979-04:002011-04-20T15:13:01.979-04:00Hi Pat,

I've only decided to be a (future) Applied Mathematician since September 2010, after completing a one year review of the current State of the Art in Physics, which led to me to the conclusion that there HAS to be something better than uber-speculators who argue a lot in what is nevertheless a VERY fascinating field, and there is! <br /><br />It's called .... mathematics!<br /><br />You're a Geometry and Analysis (Calculus) expert, and I'm just a 54-yr-old boy in comparison, so a lot of things you've known since your undergrad days, is new to me like this one.<br /><br />Also, it was only in January I found out how important Euler was. before that and thanks to Physics, I was fixated on Gauss (and Galois). I thought HE was the smartest guy, ever. Thanks to continued studying, I realized I was wrong. It was Euler.<br /><br />Ironically, about a week later Shecky made a comment here, a good one (as Sheckys always do), which led me to check the blogs he liked, which included your Pat's Blog, and that's why we know each other.<br /><br />Euler brothers forever, brah. ;-)<br /><br />So no, I haven't had the TIME to delve into your deep rich weblog as much as I'd like, so I didn't see that. But we have time. I'm just a boy of 54. That's means 20 years before the synapses of my brain start expanding and I drool a lot. Thanks much for the reference, though, you are as you know Sir welcome to comment here any time.Steven Colyerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10435759210177642257noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5303246073824127471.post-41323321631755436792011-04-20T06:34:51.648-04:002011-04-20T06:34:51.648-04:00Steven,
