..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

I appreciate your explanation of the Binomial Theorem, but WHO is the man in the picture. If it's supposed to be Moriarty, THIS IS NOT HIM!

Brilliant photo....the back light is exceptional. How do you get so close to your subjects?. I would have imagined that the orthodox were an intensly private people...
