    An odd book but one worth perusing It s a collection of notes, reminiscences, interesting problems and essays by John Littlewood, one of the great mathematicians of the first half of the 20th century Littlewood is famous especially for his collaboration with Hardy At one point a foreign observer commented that England had three great mathematicians Hardy, Littlewood, and Hardy Littlewood.Littlewood spent most of his career at Cambridge and the book practically smells of musty chambers in med An odd book but one worth perusing It s a collection of notes, reminiscences, interesting problems and essays by John Littlewood, one of the great mathematicians of the first half of the 20th century Littlewood is famous especially for his collaboration with Hardy At one point a foreign observer commented that England had three great mathematicians Hardy, Littlewood, and Hardy Littlewood.Littlewood spent most of his career at Cambridge and the book practically smells of musty chambers in medieval buildings, feasts at high table, and late night brandy It s worth reading just for the evocation of Cambridge in the early 20th century There is a long collection of cattty remarks So and so has a career of the highest promise behind him Baldwin always hits the nail on the head but the nail doesn t go in He can extract a superiority complex from any raw material whatsoever Many other collected stories David Sheppard, later Bishop of Liverpool, was a serious cricketer when young At one point his teammates saw him on his knees praying Oh Lord, Thy will be done, but a century this afternoon would be very acceptable A century is a particular high score at Cricket One of the things I learned I think from the introduction, not the text is that the Hardy Littlewood collaboration was mostly by letters And they had some rather peculiar rules 1 Each of them was totally free to write to the other and it was indifferent if the content was right or wrong 2 The recipient was free to never respond or even read anything if they were busy or not in the mood 3 While not essential, it is preferable that the two of them focus on different details 4 All papers would have both their names regardless of how much work they each put in.Once they had the ideas, Littlewood s role in a joint paper was to make the logical skeleton, in shorthand no distinction between r and r 2, 2 pi and 1, etc But when I said Lemma 17, it stayed Lemma 17 That part is in the text
