Monday blast from the past #9: The posts of Christmas past.

As I was writing my last post it occurred to me that the new readers that I have acquired through twitter are probably not aware that the Renaissance Mathematicus has a tradition of Christmas posts for Isaac Newton born on the 25th, Charles Babbage born on the 26th and Johannes Kepler born on the 27th. This in the third year of my trinity of Christmas posts and so I thought I would take the opportunity to draw your attention to the previous years.

In 2010 I wrote about Isaac’s activities as a Bible chronologist, Charles’ aversion to noise pollution and Johannes’ theories of musical harmony.

In 2009 I wrote about Isaac’s theories of the shape of the earth, Charles’ contribution to the history of the computer and Johannes’ work on optical physics.
