Sorry for being rude, but the name of the famous mathematician is Janos Bolyai not Balyai (Bólyai János in his native language, Hungarian). He was the son of Farkas Bolyai, also a famous mathematician, known as Wolfgang Bolyai in Germany. The University is called Babes-Bolyai. Beside that I enjoyed your article, cheers.
