Mystery Mathematician June '08 - An Anagram!


And now for something completely different...

A Math Mystery Anagram!
No picture this month!
If you like this variation, let me know...



"MEN-Y" THEOREM

No, it's not Monty Python, although the anagram contains 'Monty'! There are many anagram generators/solvers online so you could try those, although I did not find them useful here - I had to do this scramble myself. Please allow poetic license on the spelling of 'many' - perhaps there is a hidden clue there!

This mathematician was unique in so many ways - it is about time we paid proper tribute...

Our wordplay enthusiasts out there (and most math people are!) will probably solve this quickly but DON'T FORGET THE RULES:
