This poster, called Enormous Usefulness, is designed primarily to emphasise the fundamental importance of mathematics to the natural sciences  linking classroom mathematics with life outside the mathematics classroom. For those interested it also provides a potential starting point for discussion about whether mathematics has been discovered or invented.
Wigner  a Hungarian mathematician, born in 1902.

He was awarded the 1963 Nobel Prize in physics for his contributions to the study of atomic nuclei." From The World Treasury of Physics, Astronony, and Mathematics, Edited by Timothy Ferris, 1991.
