That's why it comes back to math. Math has no bias. It doesn't come from TV. It doesn't know what you're wearing. Math treats all people equally.

When nothing else makes sense, math reaches an answer.

Si vous etes un très bon étudiant en maths, vous pouvez candidater pour une bourse de Master à “Paris Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences”. Apparemment, ils donnent dix bourses par an, et chaque bourse dure 2 ans. Les étrangers sont encouragés à candidater aussi.Voici une info que j’ai reçue de mes collègues parisiens:
