A mathematician and ...The following sketches show our dedication to abstract thinking in the most unusual situations and strong belief in the universality of mathematical methods. Mathematicians are always impatient and intelligent.
A physicist, a mathematician, and a mystic were asked to name the
greatest invention of all time. The physicist chose the fire, which gave
humanity the power over matter. The mathematician chose the alphabet, which
gave humanity power over symbols. The mystic chose the thermos bottle.
An chemist, a physicist, and a mathematician are stranded on an island when a can of food rolls ashore. The chemist and the physicist comes up with many ingenious ways to open the can. Then suddenly the mathematician gets a bright idea: "Assume we have a can opener ..."
An engineer, a physicist and a mathematician were asked to hammer a nail
into a wall.
A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer were traveling through
Scotland when they saw a black sheep through the window of the train.
A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer are all given identical rubber balls and told to find the volume. They are given anything they want to measure it, and have all the time they need. The mathematician pulls out a measuring tape and records the circumference. He then divides by two times pi to get the radius, cubes that, multiplies by pi again, and then multiplies by four-thirds and thereby calculates the volume. The physicist gets a bucket of water, places 1.00000 gallons of water in the bucket, drops in the ball, and measures the displacement to six significant figures. And the engineer? He writes down the serial number of the ball, and looks it up.
A Mathematician (M) and an Engineer (E) attend a lecture by a Physicist.
The topic concerns Kulza-Klein theories involving physical processes that
occur in spaces with dimensions of 9, 12 and even higher. The M is sitting,
clearly enjoying the lecture, while the E is frowning and looking generally
confused and puzzled. By the end the E has a terrible headache. At the end,
the M comments about the wonderful lecture.
A team of engineers were required to measure the height of a flag pole. They only had a measuring tape, and were getting quite frustrated trying to keep the tape along the pole. It kept falling down, etc. A mathematician comes along, finds out their problem, and proceeds to remove the pole from the ground and measure it easily. When he leaves, one engineer says to the other: "Just like a mathematician! We need to know the height, and he gives us the length!"
