New Age Needs New Maths!

I just retweeted this quote from algebra fact then I found it very meaningful. I stopped for 2-3 seconds thinking about it. Then I decided to republish it here. I especially recommend you to go and read the comments. I don’t know what’s wrong with us that we are so much conservative?

“Classical mathematicians like Euler would now be called applied mathematicians, de Moivre would maybe be a statistician, Newton a mathematical physicist and Turing a computer scientist and von Neuman an economist.” — Oliver Knill
