Twilight's Theorem by labba94 Twilight's Theorem by labba94
I usually tell my friends "Hey, I'm working on a comic! Here is the idea I'm going to base it on/the script/the sketch/the full strip/etc.". But this time I wanted to try something different. I wondered... what would happen if I worked on a comic secretely without telling ANYONE to make you all a surprise? Well, I worked on it.

And this is what I drew yesterday (and it was completed just some minutes ago) :P I hope you all will like it! ^_^

Also... if you're interested in that crab, he is :iconpony-berserker:'s OC, Tom. The other toy pony is my OC, the Shaman, from this comic series. And the eyelashes... well, the eyelashes are from this other awesome deviant ;P


I drew them taking this comic's Fluttershy as reference =D

Plus, if you're interested in the twin prime numbers conjecture:
Twin prime (Wikipedia)
Who knows if Twilight will be able to solve it, sooner or later... =P

Special thanks to:
Rated PonyStar, who grammar-checked the page.

Love the hitchhikers reference!

GASP! 101 and 103 are twin prime numbers!

... yes, I know what twin prime number conjecture is, though I'm more of a geometry kind of mathematician...

Yes, they're prime numbers! :la: But why did you choose these two out of all the couples you could use? =P Anyway... wow, a mathematician like me, who likes ponies, like me. Why haven't we met before?! :P

They are the bigger I was able to conjure up back then... 1001 = 7 * 11 * 13, and 30031 = 59 * 509 so I couldn't use them.

I'm not exactly a mathematician, since I'm still in college, but I consider myself to be one. I'm more interested in the classical part of geometry, like, polyhedra, axiomatic geometry (with or without the Fifth Postulate), classical differential geometry, etc. I think about theory of computation and foundation of mathematics from time to time.

What do you do?

Then I'm like you: I'm not a mathematician (I currently study mathematics at university where I live, that is in Italy), but I consider myself to be one... even if I'll actually become a mathematician only when I get my degree in 2015.

That part of mathematics, that is geometry, is very interesting =) My favourite fields are algebra and calculus, though: I like algebraic structures and the practical applications of calculus ^_^

My love towards maths is also why I drew a comic called... "Ponies and Mathematics" :P

I have seen that before, and suggested that Fluttershy should have asked "Not even countable infinity?" (Like the cardinality of the set of rationals)
The most interesting part in analysis for me is the most fundamental part of it, namely the continuum. Hermann Weyl wrote a whole book dedicated to "The Continuum".
As for group theory, I wish to study it someday for my geometry work, especially polytope theory. I have made some origami models of polyhedra,

Also, technically, Fluffle Puff is a hairy donut (almost all metazoas undergo Gastrulation during embryonic development, at which point the embryo turns from a sphere into a donut), and It' trivial to show that a hairy donut can be combed.

Right now I'm learning origami so that I can fold origami ponies.

Consider that I plan my comics so that they can be posted on Equestria Daily and be liked by people: such a joke would have been great, but almost no-one would have understood it ;P I had to discard a lot of jokes there for this very same reason =)

And... yes, the continuum is interesting. Plus, as you know the cardinality of the set of real numbers is called "the cardinality of the continuum" (which in Italian is "cardinalitÓ del continuo", and you can witness the usage of almost identical words)... but in our langage this is also expressed by the sentence "potenza del continuo", that is, literally, "the power of the continuum". This is the basis of the motto we use for the Deparment of Mathematics that is part of the university I study at, that is "Pi¨ potenti del continuo" (literally, "more powerful than the continuum"): in fact, if taken literally, it simply indicates a set whose cardinality is higher than aleph-1, the cardinality of the set of real numbers... but because of the usage of the word "powerful", it can also mean that mathematicians are strong people thanks to the power of their own mind, something that can indeed render them "more powerful" than the whole infinity of real numbers.

Oh, and I can understand your point about Fluffle Puff =P Even if the reason is again the same: almost no-one knows proper mathematics here, and I needed a joke to conclude the comic. People didn't even know that the hairy ball theorem is an actual mathematical thing, so everything has always been ok and nobody ever contested those last panels... even if they're not mathematically correct ^_^

But when I'm on deviantART, I'm mostly a comic artist after all: I leave rigor and precision for actual mathematics when I'm dealing with it in other situations, when I'm surrounded by people like you who know what I'm talking about if I speak of theorems and numbers and so on.

Also... aww, it's very interesting! I'd love to be able to do that! ^_^ Will you upload some photos if you're able to do them?

I don't get the ending. But I still laughed
