I mean the word proof not in the sense of the lawyers, who set two half proofs equal to a whole one, but in the sense of a mathematician, where half proof = 0, and it is demanded for proof that every doubt becomes impossible.Carl Friedrich Gauss
To such idle talk it might further be added: that whenever a certain exclusive occupation is coupled with specific shortcomings, it is likewise almost certainly divorced from certain other shortcomings.Carl Friedrich Gauss
I confess that 's Theorem as an isolated proposition has very little interest for me, for a multitude of such theorems can easily be set up, which one could neither prove nor disprove. But I have been stimulated by it to bring our again several old i...Carl Friedrich Gauss
As is well known the principle of virtual velocities transforms all statics into a mathematical assignment, and by 's principle for dynamics, the latter is again reduced to statics. Although it is is very much in order that in gradual training of sci...Carl Friedrich Gauss
