PARADOX

The magazine of MUMS! Maths-filled pages of articles, news and memes! We welcome contributions, so if you're interested in writing something get in touch with the editor!

2019, ISSUE 2

This time, we have a distinctly geometry-themed Paradox. Including an introductory look at fibre bundles, a discussion of differential geometry, a biographical article on the late geometer and Fields medallist, Maryam Mirzakhani. You will also find some excellent tips for performing fast and efficient partial-fraction decomposition and an exciting look into the crazy world of category theory. We have experiences and tips learnt from the recent Women in Physics and Mathematics camp, and an interview of a trader from Optiver!
