Re: Challenging math... (Sulpicius)Go to any good search engine, AltaVista, Lycos, etc. and put in the following as search criterion.

"Banach Tarski"

"Quaternions"

"Axiom of Choice"

"Poincare Group"

"Lorentz Invariant"Or ...

E=mc^2 is actually not Einstein's formula. It is a simplification created in an attempt to educate the general public. The actual formula Einstein wrote was E^2 - (pc)^2 = m^2*C^4. Explore the meaning and derivation of the real formula and understand quite a bit more about the universe in which we live.Or ... explore the following:

Pi is not a fundamental number. It is generated by a harmonic series. The configuration of space-time in which circles and spheres exist is also generated by the same basic underlying harmonic series and thus incorporates Pi.Or ... derive a proof of the following true statement:

(e raised to the power (pi * i) + 1 = 0

Yes ... it really is ... exactly 0.If you need more let me know. Also considering locating the following at a local college or university:

Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications

Cambridge University Press. There are at least 24 volumes in the series.Finally ... keep answer the following question:

Does a polar bear,

under an appropriate coordinate transformation

become a rectangular bear?
