My pick this week from Mariana Cook’s new book MATHEMATICIANS: An Outer View of the Inner World is a photographic portrait of Fields Medal winner Simon Donaldson. His area of expertise is differential and algebraic geometry and teaches at the the Imperial College London. Simon’s subtle smile makes it seem like he knows something that I don’t-and can prove it with those perplexing equations in the background! Enjoy!
