#98347 - may memory may be failing me
Responding to: Jan Waclawek's previous message
may memory may be failing me about the Nobel Prize, but his accomplishment (the superelipse) was mathematical. Piet Hein was a true renessaince man dabbling in about everything with brilliance. The link below, which discuss his various activities, include (in english) a poem (T T T) I have on my office wall for the edification of management.

A truly fascinating man.

Should you be interested in more of his poems, google for gruk (in Danish) or Grook (in english) As part of his universal intellect, he also, himself, transaled (most?) gruk into grooks
