Dr A. G. Thomason - Probabilistic Combinatorics
This is Probabalistic Combinatorics; is there a dead cat in the room?
Help - I require context here :) ...Thomason is wacky, but not wacky enough to say that for *absolutely no* reason. What induced him to say that?? --AC
Apparently the room smelt a little odd. I have almost no sense of smell, so can't comment.
That was 8 minutes of contentless flannel.
Oh, I'm drawing a smily face - that was entirely accidental. This is a happy model.
In the meantime, let's see how far we can dig using an aluminium teaspoon and bare hands.
The point is that s_t doesn't have a t in it.
[D:Lecturers][At 12:35, wrt something started at 12:05] I'm sorry, I only meant to spend 5 minutes on that.
Let t be plus something infinitely large but not that large.
I think that fact was first written down by our own Professor Grimmett, when he had more hair.
The for-crying-out-loud theory applies at this point.
Alas, probabilistic combinatorics proved intractable, so no more Thomason quotes, unless TheInquisitor adds them.
[In an email to all PartIII? students]: With respect to a Part III essay I set (on Graph Minors), I mentioned in an examples class at the start of this term an extra reference, to do with Mangoes.
Prof H. Osborn - Symmetry and Particle Physics
The fact that the proton and the electron have equal and opposite charges is obvious from the fact that we don't explode.
Dr I. B. Leader - Ramsey Theory
Everything on the board you should write down. Everything I say you can ignore - except this statement of course!
This is called "Strengthened van der Waerden", because it strengthens van der Waerden.
It's your job at some point to go home, drink Coffee...
If Iain Duncan Smith is colour "c"
Prof. A. Ekert - Introduction to Quantum Computation
Just renormalise me as I go along.
Prof P. Bursill-Hall - History of Mathematics
Along come the Romans. "The Who?", you ask. No, The Who are a rock group.
What happens in the middle ages? Two things. One is baked beans.
Prof. Korner - General Part III seminars
Although marriage can last longer than 3 years, it can be quite an intense relationship.
You shouldn't say "I want to spend my future doing left-handed pseudogroups".
Remember that people are human beings.
This is so low-brow other people think the brows are the beard.
Prof. P. T. Johnstone - Category Theory
As the returning officer for this constituency, I hereby present the following results.
Prof. R. Weber - Mathematics of Operational Research
[written on OHP - sic] Furtherest Insertion Heuristic: Start at some city and awalys add city whoze minimal distence to existing tour is greatest.
Dr. T. Forster - Set Theory
Stout chap, Imre. Lots of good ideas.
It isn't blindingly obvious that you have infinitely many socks.
PTJ is an unrealistic and ambitious sadist.
There are some questions here which we can't duck completely, but we can kick them into the long grass.
I can't bzz-bzz-bzzz this one, for example Forster has a habit of going "bzz" when thinking. This is a prime example
That was with a view to proving 42 - the Meaning-of-Life Lemma
"Fluid Mechanics of Swimming Organisms" was great. I really liked it. Being an open book exam, it was the first time I could actually get some marks for fluid dynamics! You see, I could do the maths OK, but I couldn't remember the equations... --M-A CategoryQuotes | LecturerQuotes
