The Three Raddi Theory, otherwise known as “Tamar’s Theory” was composed and proofed, and is now acknowledged by distinguished mathematicians such as Professor Ron Livne at the Einstein School of Mathematics at Hebrew University in Jerusalem and Ofer Grossman from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Interestingly, Tamar’s interests lie not so much in math but more so in the entertainment industry. She is a ballet student and an accomplished musician. Read about this fascinating Israeli 16-year-old here.
