Why “Mathistopheles”?

This was intended to be a site about maths and writing. I’d just seen Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus, at the Globe, with Arthur Darvill in the role of Mephistopheles, so Mathistopheles was meant to be a combination of maths and literature. Mephistopheles is a demon, hence the demonic Twitter picture, formed by a Lorenz Attractor (the chaotic curve that forms the eyes).
