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!

Beautiful except the ending

Posted on Mon, 12 Aug 2019

Beautiful except the ending? Was it really meant so? An anticlamax. It is terrible.

Beautiful Richard!

Posted on Sun, 11 Aug 2019

Beautiful Richard! I also treasure my childhood memories. Grown-ups don't apprecate how much you learn and the happiness you feel in new experiences and even in everyday life.

Keep well! Tom Brown
