I thought it would be a good idea to relay some of the advice given by Sir Michael Francis Atiyah during his talk on Tuesday. Always ask yourself questions.
Mathematicians (like all other people) come in different forms. Some work in the abstract and are most happy there, whilst others feel the urge to ground themselves with intuitive examples.
It seems that the calendar has pulled one of its oh-so-sneaky moves on me. In less than a week, I will be packing my bags and flying (in an airplane, no doubt) to Germany to attend the first ever Heidelberg Laureate Forum.
