Here a line of fixed length is moved along the edge of an ellipse, tracing out a collection of new shapes. Consider the area of the shape traced by a point p units from one end of the line and q from the other. Holditch’s theorem, regarded as a milestone in the history of maths, tells us this area is less than the area of the ellipse by at least π×p×q. Curiously, this formula holds not just for an ellipse, but any closed curve.

Einstein and the Paper Clip

jtotheizzoe:

According to mathematician and Einstein collaborator Ernst Straus, this is the anecdote that Albert most thought captured his essence:

We [Einstein and Ernst Straus] had finished the preparation of a paper and were looking for a paper clip. After opening a lot of drawers we finally found…
