Blame it on Stoppard’s Arcadia—a gorgeous play filled with poetry and math, English professors and mathematicians and students and teachers (and turtles), all inhabiting a very rich, very smart world. It was a world in which I wanted to live, or at least visit for two class periods a week. Manil had made the math in the play interesting and almost familiar; the complexities hypnotized me a bit. The images of fractals he’d generated on his laptop mirrored the mise-en-abyme of deconstruction; the proofs he’d talked about reproduced the precision of poetry in dazzling ways. —The Chronicle of Higher Education
