Vladimir Arnold Quotes and Sayings  Page 1

“All mathematics is divided into three parts: cryptography (paid for by CIA, KGB and the like), hydrodynamics (supported by manufacturers of atomic submarines) and celestial mechanics (financed by military and other institutions dealing with missiles, such as NASA).”
 Vladimir Arnold 
“Cryptography has generated number theory, algebraic geometry over finite fields, algebra, combinatorics and computers.”
 Vladimir Arnold 
“Hydrodynamics procreated complex analysis, partial differential equations, Lie groups and algebra theory, cohomology theory and scientific computing.”
 Vladimir Arnold 
“Celestial mechanics is the origin of dynamical systems, linear algebra, topology, variational calculus and symplectic geometry.”
 Vladimir Arnold 
“The existence of mysterious relations between all these different domains is the most striking and delightful feature of mathematics (having no rational explanation).”
 Vladimir Arnold
