The Dullness of 1729 (848 words)
The famous anecdote is that during one visit to Ramanujan in the hospital at Putney, Hardy mentioned that the number of the taxi cab that had brought him was 1729, which, as numbers go, Hardy thought was "rather a dull one".
At this, Ramanujan perked up, and said "No, it is a very interesting number; it is the smallest number expressible as a sum of two cubes in two different ways." This was the sort of thing that prompted Littlewood to say "every positive integer was one of [Ramanujans'] personal friends".
So if anyone ever tells me that 1729 is a dull number, I intend to affect a moment of contemplation and then say "Not at all, it is the first occurrance of all ten digits consecutively in the decimal representation of e".
1729 - The Infosphere (433 words)
1729 is known as the Hardy-Ramanujan number, after a famous anecdote of the British mathematician G. Hardy regarding a hospital visit to the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan.
I had ridden in taxi cab number 1729 and remarked that the number seemed to me rather a dull one, and that I hoped it was not an unfavorable omen.
Because in base 10 the number 1729 is divisible by the sum of its digits, it is a Harshad number.
