"Like music or art, mathematical equations can have a natural progression and logic that can evoke rare passions in a scientist. Although the lay public considers mathematical equations to be rather opaque, to a scientist an equation is very much like a movement in a larger symphony. Simplicity. Elegance. These are the qualities that have inspired some of the greatest artists to create their masterpieces, and they are precisely the same qualities that motivate scientists to search for the laws of nature. Like a work of art or a haunting poem, equations have a beauty and rhythm all their own."
"Philosophy is written in this grand book -- I mean the universe -- which stands continually open to our gaze, but it cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and interpret the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles and other geometric figures, without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it."
--- GALILEO GALILEI, H Saggiatore (1623)

[I've checked out the following sites and they appear valid. Nonetheless, things change abruptly on the web without notice. In general, whenever you download anything--a book, a music video, a documentary, a software program from a third party, a game, an email attachment--you need to be wary. In particular, if a site requests that you first install a special program or utility in order to facilitate download, forget it. There is no technical reason for having to do so.]

Fundamental Theorem of Finite Abelian Groups
Any finite abelian group is isomorphic to a direct product of cyclic groups of prime power order.
Any two such decompositions have the same number of factors of each order.
Analogous to the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic.
"The movement of humanity, arising as it does from innumerable arbitrary human wills, is continuous," he [Tolstoy] writes. "To understand the laws of this continuous movement is the aim of history … only by taking infinitesimal units for observation … and attaining to the art of integrating them (that is, finding the sum of these infinitesimals) can we hope to arrive at the laws of history."
"The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded "for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter." What does that mean?"
"Thouless later used topology to explain other bizarre behavior, what's now known as the integer Quantum Hall effect. If a semiconducting slab sits at right angles to a magnetic field, a voltage develops across the slab. But instead of increasing smoothly as the strength of the magnetic field increases smoothly, the voltage jumps up at specific intervals. In 1983, Thouless was able to link this phenomena mathematically to topological properties, explaining the jumps."
"Not only are new materials on the horizon thanks to this novel work, but interest in the field of topological physics is exploding. The great contributions of all three of the Nobel Laureates exposed a richness of questions and possibilities, inspiring many other physicists to investigate."
