„At one time, sarangi exponents used to be called gurus and ustads because they were so learned that they could teach vocalists a thing or two. It wasn't surprising that many of them turned into vocalists and made a name for themselves independently.“

[Patil, Vrinda, Dying strains of sarangi, The Tribune, 9 December 2000, http://www.webcitation.org/5pb57z9G6]

„These Exponents they call Logarithms“

—  John Wallis English mathematician 1616 - 1703

Of Logarithms, Their Invention and Use (1685)
Kontext: These Exponents they call Logarithms, which are Artificial Numbers, so answering to the Natural Numbers, as that the addition and Subtraction of these, answers to the Multiplication and Division of the Natural Numbers. By this means, (the Tables being once made) the Work of Multiplication and Division is performed by Addition and Subtraction; and consequently that of Squaring and Cubing, by Duplication and Triplication; and that of Extracting the Square and Cubic Root, by Bisection and Trisection; and the like in the higher Powers.
