Next time you lose your paddle whilst canoeing - don't despair. There is another way to push your canoe forwards: by jumping on it! Gunwale bobbing refers to the act of standing on the gunwales (side walls) of a canoe and forcing it into oscillations with one's legs. When forced at the right frequency, the canoe can surf from crest to crest of the generated wave field by pushing into positive surface gradients.
With 'Me and My Maths' we are showing the sort of people who do maths round here, the sort of maths they do and what they get out of it.
In Episode 2 we meet Jason who is a geometer working in multiple dimensions, Wojciech (with Delta) who is a mathematicial logician and Ghita who looks at financial modelling. The films are one-minute each though as someone pointed out the whole length of the film is 3.14 minutes. Deliberate of course.
PS: 'Me and My Math' if you are outside the UK. Or 'My Maths and I' as a purist might prefer.
Mathematicians seek truth, beauty and elegance, in mathematics itself and in our work with researchers studying fundamental questions in a host of other disciplines. We pursue excellence in all aspects of research, teaching and the communication of mathematics.
The education of the mathematicians of the future is at the heart of our mission. Our wide range of courses at undergraduate and graduate level offers an outstanding training in maths and its links to other disciplines.
