Увлекательная история формул на плитках пола в Вюрцбургском университете

Mathematics underfoot: The formulas that came to Wuerzburg from New Haven: https://arxiv.org/abs/1911.02226

Two formulas are set in floor-tiles in the foyer of the Wuerzburg building that houses the laboratory in which Wilhelm Roentgen discovered X-rays in 1895.

The answers involve two distinguished professors and their PhD students, working on opposite sides of the Atlantic in the 19th Century.
