Tom Brown's picture
Tom Brown

 

I consider myself a teacher of mathematics. I have an MSc at the University of
South Africa and a PhD at the University of Pretoria but people mostly know
me as Mr Brown. What gives me most meaning and fulfilment in work is to
encourage and inspire gifted young people, who could face similar difficulties
and adversities than I've had. My main academic research interests would be
in stochastic processes and in the mathematical theory of empathy.
My greatest academic ambition is to consolidate the work of Prof Niko Sauer.
A monumental task. For the love of God and the fear of Mathematics!

International Youth Science Fortnight

A lovely sketch of sleep and peace, which I think in the end is what we all really long for.

Keep well Richard! Peaceful sleep, sweet sleep!

The Amazon rainforests' wildlife you may stand a chance Luigi but you can forget about it's tribes. The western way of life the greed and yearning for comfort and ease is taking over everywhere. It seems unstoppable. As for the planting of trees...
