Mathematics and poetry

A nice article by Ornes on slate and a paper by Glaz.

My favourites has to be the Fermat Last Theorem Poetry Challenge which I have read about previously elsewhere. Here’s one entry by
E. Howe, H. Lenstra, D. Moulton:
“My butter, garcon, is writ large in!”
a diner was heard to be chargin’.
“I HAD to write there,”
exclaimed waiter Pierre,
“I couldn’t find room in the margarine.”
