Mathematics: Why the brain sees maths as beauty
This article is a few months old now but still worth a read if interested  it's brief.
http://www.bbc.com/news/scienceenvironment26151062 I can't argue with Euler's identity being ranked as a favorite. Regards, John

May have been a blip at BBC, but it's all OK now from here. Interesting article. I'd like to see the results of analyzing folks brains when using different calculators. Take any 1 person and have he/she use HP RPN, HP RPL, TI Algebraic and Prime Algebraic. Person by person, I'm sure we could observe which style he/she perceives as "art" and which as "punishement". While all are beautiful to someone, no one sees them all as beautiful. Interesting stuff. Bob Prosperi
