Stories from the School of Mathematics
“It has always been easy to find professors willing to help answer questions, suggest further reading, and discuss mathematical ideas with me. This environment is not present everywhere; this is something special about Georgia Tech.”
Matt Baker, an award-winning professor in Tech’s School of Mathematics, also happens to be an award-winning magician.
"Executive management is about solving problems and learning how to work with people. Georgia Tech has always been a leader in interdisciplinary teams, and it still is today.”
In 1977, Paul Seymour made a conjecture in Graph Theory. Nearly 40 years later, Georgia Tech mathematicians offered proof that he was right.
