Leonhard Euler has fans in the running community
When traveling for business (or pleasure), I see many things. However, as a mathematics major working as an Actuary, it was a pleasure to come across the Team Euler van from the Hood to Coast race here in Portland, OR. As one who recalls having to memorize Euler’s number to 15 decimal places in 11th grade (and still know it to this day), it’s always great to see others who can appreciate a 18th century Swiss mathematician such as Leonhard Euler (1707-1783).
Hey, we math people don’t get a lot of love in popular culture so we take it when we can get it. So, thanks to Team Euler and the Hood to Coast group for appreciating a great mathematician.
