Ah, The Simpsons. Quite possibly past its heyday, but it can still be amusing. I’ve always known it contained many little pop culture references, but I didn’t realise there were so many maths related ones.
Over at The Guardian, Simon Singh details how mathematically sophisticated The Simpsons actually is, and it’s really rather cool. He focuses on a few particular episodes, talks about the maths gurus behind the show, and elaborates on the mathematical formulas. Really makes me want to go back and watch all the episodes to try and see all these secret titbits!
Well worth reading. D’oh! Onwards!
