Tomorrow is Jean Baptieste Joseph Fourier's Birthday!
In 2003 we can write that Fourier, too, achieved
immortality. There is probably no science laboratory in the world
that is not using Fourier analyses on data sets.
Born: March 21, 1768
in Auxere, Bourgogne, France
Died: May 16, 1830
in Paris, France
In one letter Fourier wrote:
"Yesterday was my 21st birthday, at that age Newton and Pascal
had already acquired many claims to immortality."
