Eywa'eveng-tìranyu is this weeks Mathematician of the Week! Seykxel sì nitram! Eywa'eveng-tìranyu has been paired with Enrico Fermi.

1. Who are you?

I'm Alex, a 17-year old male from Bavaria(Germany), and I'm interested in nearly everything having to do with science, computers etc.

2. What brought you to the Mathematics and Statistics board?

I was regularly on the Science board for a while, and some day I noticed that there was a new sub-board. That's the whole story.

3. For how long have you liked Math?

I liked Maths since I was in school, and I like it still.

4. What subjects/jobs do you do which involve Math? What do you do?

Well, I've got Maths, Chemistry (which has pretty much calculating in it this year.

5. What Math-related subjects did you take in High School? Or if you are a student, what are you currently studying?

see #4.

6. What is your favourite number? Why?

My favourite number is

7. Who is your favourite Mathematician/Scientist. Why?

Let me think...
I think it's Carl Friedrich Gauß (1777-1855), he did many things for Mathematics

8. What is your favorite function in math and why?

x²+y²+z²=r². I don't know why.

9. Three statements about yourself - True or false? - The community has to answer

1. I've never studied for a Math exam.
2. I read Science books rather than novels or similar.
3. Chess helps me to train calculating in my mind

10. Pi or Tau?

I've always calculated with π, so I prefer that.

11. Do you prefer to work in degrees or Rads?

Degrees, if it is about geometry, rads if it's about trigonometry. Before trigonometry, I always used  degrees, but in trigonometry, it's easier to calculate.

12. Calculatorly or manually?

If possible, I do it manually, but when it comes to more complicated funcitons such as sine, cosine or similar, I use the calculator.

13. Joke time!

A sociologist, a physician and a mathematician are sitting in the train. They look out of a window and see a black sheep.
   Sociologist: "There are black sheep in this area."
   Physician: "False. There is at least one black sheep in this area."
   Mathematician: "Still false. I this area, there is at least one sheep that is black on at least one side."

14. Do you feel the temptation in tests to write your justifications in Na'vi?

Not really.

15. Do you like Physics too?

Yes of course, because:
If it lives, it's biology; if it reacts, it's chemistry, if it doesn't work, it's physics.

16. Real-Life Picture (Optional)

17. Do you have any other hobbies?

Mainly programming.

18. This is the story

Suddenly, I woke up and noticed with a shock I was kissing a cow.
