Pierre Fermat Illustration

Here’s a cover for a translated  book of renaissance French mathematics by  Jim Nicholson.

The subject is Pierre Fermat. He invented calculus, statistics, analytical geometry and corrected Galileo about the orbits of bodies, and he has Fermat’s principle in optics named after him.

Needless to say, every time someone challenged him about proofs and such, he came through. A man after my own heart.
