Ричард Уэсли Хэмминг — американский математик, работы которого в сфере теории информации оказали существенное влияние на компьютерные науки и телекоммуникации. Основной вклад — т. н. код Хэмминга, а также расстояние Хэмминга.


„Есть длины волн, которые люди не могут видеть, звуки, которые люди не могут слышать, и может, у компьютеров есть мысли, которые люди не могут думать.“

„What you learn from others you can use to follow.
What you learn for yourself you can use to lead.“

„When you are famous it is hard to work on small problems. This is what didin. After information theory, what do you do for an encore? The great scientists often make this error. They fail to continue to plant the little acorns from which the mighty oak trees grow. They try to get the big thing right off. And that isn't the way things go. So that is another reason why you find that when you get early recognition it seems to sterilize you.“

„True greatness is when your name is like,, and—when it's spelled with a lower case letter.“

„said, 'If I have seen further than others, it is because I've stood on the shoulders of giants.' These days we stand on each other's feet!“

„The purpose of computation is insight, not numbers.“

„Beware of finding what you're looking for.

„Does anyone believe that the difference between theandintegrals can have physical significance, and that whether say, an airplane would or would not fly could depend on this difference? If such were claimed, I should not care to fly in that plane.“


„Most people like to believe something is or is not true. Great scientists tolerate ambiguity very well. They believe the theory enough to go ahead; they doubt it enough to notice the errors and faults so they can step forward and create the new replacement theory. If you believe too much you'll never notice the flaws; if you doubt too much you won't get started. It requires a lovely balance.“ You and Your Research

„The applications of knowledge, especially mathematics, reveal the unity of all knowledge. In a new situation almost anything and everything you ever learned might be applicable, and the artificial divisions seem to vanish.“ Methods of Mathematics Applied to Calculus, Probability, and Statistics

„Vicarious learning from the experiences of others saves making errors yourself, but I regard the study of successes as being basically more important than the study of failures. There are so many ways of being wrong and so few of being right, studying successes is more efficient.“ The Art of Doing Science and Engineering: Learning to Learn

„It is not easy to become an educated person.“ Methods of Mathematics Applied to Calculus, Probability, and Statistics
