Memorial page of our beloved friend and colleague, Dr. Nikolai Chernov

"Bach opens a vista to the universe. After experiencing him, people feel there is meaning to life after all." -- Helmut Walcha

"Mathematics is not the rigid and rigidity-producing schema that the layman thinks it is; rather, in it we find ourselves at that meeting point of constraint and freedom that is the very essence of human nature." -- Hermann Weyl

"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning". -- Rich Cook

"Doing research in mathematics is frustrating and if being frustrated is something you cannot get used to, then mathematics may not be an ideal occupation for you" -- Peter Sarnak
