RIP Abraham Nemeth (1918-2013)
Abraham Nemeth, who created a Braille code for mathematics and also invented MathSpeak, has died. Now here is a dude who made major contributions! (Tip of the cap to Ernie Barreto.)
My name is Mason Porter. I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at UCLA. Previously I was Professor of Nonlinear and Complex Systems in the Mathematical Institute at University of Oxford. I was also a Tutorial Fellow of Somerville College.
