Leopold Kronecker said that God had
Made the integers but nothing in between.
The study of transcen-dental numbers was mad!
And the irrationals, he thought they were obscene!

Although he was eccentric, old Leo was hero!
He studied elliptic functions, so they say.
But he did something else, and it equals one or zero--
It’s the reason physicists remember him today!

Kronecker delta functions are such fun --
A little delta and a tiny m- n !
If the subscripts are equal, the value is just one,
But zero if they’re different,
let’s sing the song again!
[Repeat twice. On the second repeat, replace the last line with "That's enough this is the end!"]
