Subject: Mathematics Research

Dear fellow mathematician, 

In late 1999, a questionnaire was circulated among physicists asking
several questions about the past, present and future of physics. We are
doing research of a similar nature for mathematics. In our endeavour, we
wish to discover what fascinates mathematicians about their subject, how
they came into the field and what they think about it now. In this
research, we are interviewing mathematicians and circulating a
questionnaire. Among the mathematicians supporting our research with
individual interviews are Louis H. Kauffman, John H. Conway and Michael V.

For ease of participation, the questionnaire is available in an online form


Thank you very much for your participation. Please let any friends and
colleagues in mathematics who may be interested in taking part know about
it. You will not get mail from us again unless you request it at the end of
the questionnaire. Please accept our apologies if you receive this email
more than once.

Patrick Bangert, Nicky Graves Gregory
