In Grapjes, door Ionica

Electronic Principles van Albert Paul Malvino begint met de volgende opdracht.

To Joanna,

My brilliant and beautiful wife without whom I would be nothing. She always comforts and consoles, never complains or interferes, asks nothing and endures all, and writes my dedications.

Tal Cohen verzamelt dit soort boekgrappen op zijn pagina Book In-Jokes. De voorbeelden komen uit informatica- en wiskundeboeken. Erg grappig vond ik ook deze uit Fourier Analysis van T.W. Körner.

In the index we find the entry:

fractals: not mentioned, 112

Sure enough, there is no mention of fractals on page 112 (or elsewhere in the book). However, what we do find on page 112 is a brief mention of catastrophe theory, or rather the “popular stir” it caused. The parallels with the hype surrounding fractals (and chaos) are manifest. There are many hints of the occurence of fractals in the book, but they are never called such.
