... looks into questions such as ...

  • Why are certain mathematical statements true?
  • How can mathematical hypotheses be proved?
  • Can a mathematical statement be even further generalised?
  • How, exactly, does one define a mathematical structure (as much definition as necessary, as little definition as possible)?
  • How can natural or technological processes be modelled mathematically?
  • Continuous efforts and diligent learning are the only way to success in Mathematics.
