It Adds Up.

I loathe algebra.

Integers are infuriating.

Calculus confounds me.

I have a mathematician friend who is always equating math to clothing. “There's a famous quote," she tells me. “Beauty is the first test; there is no permanent place in the world for ugly mathematics.” This person must have also thought Limburger cheese smells delightful (hint: it doesn’t).

“The whole is greater than the sum of the parts,” she begins.

“Yes, I’ve played team sports,” I say.

“Well, isn’t that true in some of your creations?”

“You’re going to have to do better than that.”

“Do you know what a proof is, Peterman?”

“Yes, it’s what I try to cover up on occasion.”

“Very funny. A proof is a mathematical argument. Most proofs are laborious, confusing and predictable.”

“Go on,” I say.

“But the elegant proof—and that is the term we use, ‘elegant’—it is simple. It reveals much about the subject matter. It is visually stunning. And there is always an element of surprise. Elegance is universal.”

She is a very good teacher.
