From 2 February to 8 April 2012. there was a teporary exhibition in the Local Museum of Faro which advertisement was this curious elephant. This animal would not be too mathematical if its hat hasn’t got an infinite drawn on it. The advertisement was near the train station of faro and it was one of the last things which I could see in the capital of Algarve.
Who was Francisco Horta, this “distinguished mathematician from Faro” (as we can read in the picture)? If he was so distinguished… why none of my mathematical friends from the capital of Portuguese region of Algarve knows him? If somebody knows the answer, please write a commentary to the post!
