Bridging the gap

The Mathematical Bridge on River Cam in Cambridge, UK, was first built in 1749 and again to the same design in 1866 and 1905. This was the first bridge in the World to be designed according to mathematical analysis of the forces in it.

I cannot pretend to understand many aspects of math but I am quite thankful that others do understand it. This bridge is a wonder.
