DOC: PHYSICS RECREATIONS: THE DOOMSDAY ALGORITHM


The doomsday algorithm is a clever method for determining the day of week for any calendar date, which you can do entirely in your head. The method is surprisingly easy to learn and remember, and will allow you to calculate the day of the week for any date on the Gregorian calendar in just a few seconds....
