Incidentally, you can tell from the color of the books behind him that he’s a mathematician.

I thought so too, but look a little closer, I think that he might actually be a physicist. Definitely some Springer yellow, though, plus Hatcher’s Algebraic Topology.

If you can read the titles, your eyes are better than mine. (I do see the physics books in the other shelf, but they are the kind of intro texts that anyone in any STEM field might have saved from their undergrad days. I have some similar texts on my shelves, right next to my Modula and PL/1 manuals.)
