God or nature whichever one believes in is the greatest mathematician. I have even heard that God wrote this universe in Math. Use this thread to share pages of Math stolen from nature. I know about some: â€¢golden section in sunflower. â€¢fibonacci spiral in shells of molluscs. â€¢elliptic movement of planets. ...etc. Have a happy time posting!!!!

A 'simple' consequence of Newton's universal gravitation (though discovered previously).
