There's all type of creative ideas for table names, places you've been as a couple, favorite books, types of herbs, but I'm planning on doing actual numbers! For a bit of background the boy and I met in a Combinatorics class. I have my masters in math and the boy is currently working on his Phd. So when I say numbers, I don't mean numbers like 1,2,3. Instead I mean numbers like π or e. Here's some of the number I'd love to use, and a brief description of what it means.
This is the board from one of my classes senior year of college to give you an idea of the numbers we actually used.
i - as in the imaginary numbers, by definition √-1
ε - Epsilon - Basically used as a small area of measure. So often in proof you'll want to proof something when epsilon is greater than zero, which basically means something that exists in very small terms.
λ - Lambda - This is more chemistry than math, but it's used to designate wavelength.
∞ - Infinity - Technically not a number in mathematical theory, but more for the idea that something is infinite.
ℵ0 - Aleph Naught - First I love this one because it's actually a Hebrew letter instead of a Greek letter. To try to explain this concept as simple as possible, this symbol represents the number of integers that exist.
I could probably come up with a few more, but it at least gives you an idea of where I'm going. Although honestly I'm not sure how many more we could actually come up with that would work. I thinking maybe along with the numbers we could do mathematical theory, or maybe even famous mathematicians, but for now I think it's a start.
Did you do anything clever for your table numbers? And if you're more math-y, any ideas of other "Famous Numbers" we could use?
