Label Text:
"Beauty in mathematics can be found at many levels: in the symmetry and elegance of mathematical curves, surfaces and combinatorial structures; in the subtle logic of mathematical proofs; or, as in the case of NP-completeness, in the discovery that a large number of seemingly unrelated mathematical phenomena are all manifestations of a single underlying principle." - Richard M. Karp
