The July issue of the Gazette is online now at http://www.austms.org.au/Gazette+Volume+36+Number+3+July+2009 .
In the Classroom Notes, Jerry Koliha and two of his third-year students, Sam
Chow and Gus Schrader, describe how they approached a challenging problem
in a special practice class in Linear Analysis. It is very encouraging to receive a
contribution from undergraduate students, and we hope that both Sam and Gus
and all their peers will send us many more articles in the future.
Also in this issue, Jon Borwein talks about exploratory experimentation in Maths
Matters, a topic close to his heart. We also continue our new series Mathematical
Minds with an interview with Rob McIntosh from Telstra’s Chief Technology Office.
And Nalini Joshi, Hyam Rubenstein and Philip Broadbridge all ponder the
issues of funding for Australian mathematics.
Congratulations to Ivan Guo for winning the latest Puzzle Corner book voucher.
And on behalf of all our readers, congratulations to Dr Norman Do for completing
his PhD while contributing the regular Puzzle Corner.
Happy reading from the Gazette team.
