Mathematical streets July 6, 2007Posted by Ben Webster in Uncategorized.
On a lighter note, I’ve gotten my housing assignment from IAS. Next year, I’ll be living in a one bedroom apartment on…wait for it…von Neumann Drive. I think Weyl Lane probably would have been a little more appropriate for my research interests, but I don’t suppose they take that into account. Still, much cooler (by which I mean, dorkier) than any other street I’ve lived on before.
Of course, I would rather live on Gauss Way in Berkeley, but I’m afraid there isn’t much space for a house there. Are there any other exciting mathematical street names out there? There seems to be an Eulerstrasse in Basel, but on the whole, I feel like these sorts of things are hard to search for. Is AIM going to get a mathematically themed street name for its new place in Morgan Hill (it doesn’t seem to say at the moment on their website)?
