Study Tip - 2

Do you know any professional musicians, dancers perhaps? History shows that art and mathematics thrive in the same places. I, sadly, don't. Although yesterday I witnessed a pianist's daily practice routine. It started with loosening up the muscles. Then, slowly, player and instrument become one sound generating machine. To me this explained why musicians can have such deep relationships with their instruments. The musicians we see on stage ( all of them, not just the 'stars' ) have practiced at least ten-thousand hours to reach that level. I don't think it's such a bad guess to say that, any mathematician who is at the forefront and is creating new mathematics, carries at least the same weight of practice hours on his belt as a professional in the arts or an athlete.

Tip 2: Exercise daily

Work on a difficult exercise every day. Find a booklet with Olympiad level exercises or any book with exercises that are a challenge for -you-. Exercises you can do won't make you better. Hard exercises do.

Welcome to The Bridge

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
