Meertens number is a number with a very peculiar property. I had the idea in 1991, when I was invited to celebrate the occasion of Lambert Meertens' 25 years at the CWI, Amsterdam. Lambert has been a good friend and colleague for a number of years, and rather than bring the usual bottle of Glenlivet as a gift, I decided to give him a number.
