..Binomial theorem........




Jerusalem, old city, reflection and shadows seized in Glasses of the orthodox Jew. In the Sherlock Holmes books, the villain Professor Moriarty is the author of A Treatise on the Binomial Theorem. # The binomial theorem is mentioned in the Gilbert and Sullivan song "I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General". # The binomial theorem appears in at least three different works by Monty Python - Coal Mine in Llandarogh Carmarthen, The Tale of Happy Valley, and the film Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. # The binomial theorem is mentioned in the TV series NUMB3RS in episode #217 ("Mind Games") in Season 2. # The generalized binomial theorem is engraved on Isaac Newton's tomb in Westminster Abbey. # In chapter 18 of Mikhail Bulgakov's "The Master and Margarita," the black magic practitioner Woland says, "But by Newton's binomial theorem, I predict that he will die in nine month's time..." From this, "it's hardly Newton's binomial theorem" became a popular Russian expression
