This classical paper on matching from the early seventies treat the boy-girl graph as bipartite. I think I am not going to use this girl-boy metaphor in class...

The initial capital of a beautifully illuminated version of the treatise Geometria Speculativa [Theoretical Geometry] by Thomas Bradwardine (c. 1290–1349).  The manuscript itself was most likely produced in Naples in the mid-to-late 1400s.

Thomas de Byer dictus de Bradwardyn was one of the Oxford Calculators, a celebrated group of intellectuals ensconced at Merton College, Oxford in the 14th century.  _Geometria Speculativa_ was originally a collection of lecture notes, written to aid students studying the mathematical works of the true masters, Euclid and Boethius; several hand-written and printed editions were produced over the next few centuries.  It may also be the earliest work to consider arbitrary regular star polygons; in modern terminology, Bradwardine observed that the interior angles of a {p/q} star polygon sum to π(2p-q).

Numerical notation in common use in the Middle ages, before the widespread adoption of the "Arabic" numerals brought to the west by Al-Khwarizmi, but after his algorithms for place-value arithmetic were well-known and accepted.  There were many variations; this particular form was standard in 14th century France.

From David King, The Ciphers of the Monks: A Forgotten Number-notation of the Middle Ages, 2001.

Today we’re unwrapping the best holiday gift we could’ve imagined: the first real build of our self-driving vehicle prototype.  

The vehicle we unveiled in May (goo.gl/qDUtgq) was an early mockup—it didn’t even have real headlights! Since then, we’ve been working on different prototypes-of-prototypes, each designed to test different systems of a self-driving car—for example, the typical “car” parts like steering and braking, as well as the “self-driving” parts like the computer and sensors. We’ve now put all those systems together in this fully functional vehicle—our first complete prototype for fully autonomous driving.

We’re going to be spending the holidays zipping around our test track, and we hope to see you on the streets of Northern California in the new year.  Our safety drivers will continue to oversee the vehicle for a while longer, using temporary manual controls as needed while we continue to test and learn.  Happy holidays!
