Top definition
Math results or theorems that are repugnant to the logical mind, which may also evoke a feeling of mathematical awe in the reader.
German mathematician Georg Cantor (1845–1918) proved that there are as many prime numbers as whole numbers, and that there are more irrational numbers like √2 and Ο€ than rational numbersβ€”his "I-see-it-but-I-don't-believe-it" proofs are examples of counterintuitive math.
