Communication in Mathematics

Communication in Mathematics

Don't hide your Next Great Theorem behind bad writing.

This course teaches fundamental communication skills in mathematics. 

Topics covered include:

  • how to write a thesis (more generally, a mathematics paper),

  • elementary LaTeX skills and language conventions,

  • how to write a personal statement for Masters and PhD applications.

There are no formal mathematical prerequisites. Here is an informal introduction to the course.

  • Lecture notes for the course are here.

  • I encourage everyone who is taking the course to join my forum (ETH/UZH login only).
