EDS Meet a Mathematician Guest Series Session #3
Sad Merchant – Problem Solving Session
We believe that the series of discussions ( ” Mathematics ) that EDS has organized for the benefit of students is providing a great opportunity for them to get first-hand interaction with Mathematicians of repute.
It’s heartening to see the willingness of the mathematicians – the experts in the profession – to come forward – to share their experiences, to motivate; to guide the students.
Our last guest, Prof Gajath has shared with us his feedback and made a few suggestions for the benefit of students as follows.
….here are some excerpts – in own words of Prof Gajath:
“ They all want to know quick ways to become researchers 😊.
One participant asked about practising Olympiad type problems and here is one good source:https://bmos.ukmt.org.uk/home/bmo.shtml (*see below 1)
Unfortunately, Purdue has stopped posting problems as of 2019, but the archive is still there
and it contains a lot of great problems.
I also maintain such a web site for the university I work:https://www.aus.edu/cas/departments/mathematics-and-statistics/about/the-math-problem-of-the-month (*see below 3)
Everybody is welcome to submit solutions. ”
