Welcome

You've reached the website of the Warwick Mathematics Society, a student society based at the University of Warwick.

To find out more about the society view the About Us page and join us on Facebook to keep up to date with everything going on!

To see what the society is up to and what we have planned, join our Facebook group above or join the society and watch your emails.

If you would like to join the society you can do so through the Warwick SU website.

Already part of the society? You may like to register yourself on our website so you can access the members-only content, or contribute some content of your own!

The society is academically focused, we offer a number of things to our members:

Academic Resources - we maintain a database of academic resources submitted by our members.

Learn LaTeX is our course (both online and in person) that will help you get to grips with typesetting mathematics on a computer.

Maths Cafe runs every Wednesday 1-4 PM in the undergraduate common room, during terms 1 and 2.

Revision Cafe runs every Wednesday and Friday in the undergraduate common room, during term 3 only.

Discussion Groups are regular talks about interesting mathematics.

On top of the academic support that we offer, the society runs regular socials throughout the year.

Right at the start of the year, we host The Integrating Factor! We spend the night in the Staff Common Room (simply because you won't ever go in there during the rest of the year) accompanied with free food and drink. Being at the start of the year it's a fantastic opportunity to meet new freshers and quite literally 'integrate' with students from all levels of study.

Another favourite is Pub Golf, which starts on campus then takes place around the public houses of Royal Leamington Spa. Don't know what it is? Look it up on Wikipedia!. This year, our first Pub Golf will take place during fresher's fortnight - watch out for details!

Of course, not all of our socials involve drinking. Other socials include pub quizzes, meals out and laserquest

And it all culminates in the final social of the year, the Annual WMS Summer BBQ and Puzzle Trail! Wow! After exams in Term 3, we give you more free food and alcohol in an amazing end of year barbecue. But before that, there's a fantastic yet challenging Puzzle Trail, where you work in teams to solve clues hidden all across campus in order to complete the trail and possibly win a prize!

You can come along to any of our events and join in - please join our Facebook group to find out more info.

If you would like to join the society you can do so through the Warwick SU website.

You can contact the society through the contact page.

You can create a warwickmaths.org account here in order to access a bit more content on our website. When you register, make sure you enter your Uni ID number. If you are a member of the society then you will gain access to a whole load more content, including our revision guides and the ability to vote in our elections!

In order to become a society member, you will need to buy society membership from Warwick SU. Once you have done this, please wait for an hour before your student ID number is validated. After this, your warwickmaths.org account will become fully functional

Finally, join our Facebook group to keep up to date with everything that the society is doing. Do it! You know you want to!

Special External Guest Speaker: Homotopy Type Theory

Dr David Corfield (Kent University) is currently researching in Homotopy Type Theory (http://homotopytypetheory.org/) and will be giving a talk on his research.

When: 12th March 6 30pm to 7 30pm
Where: MS.02, Zeeman Building

facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/575807745841750/
Abstract:

Last year a book was published after a year long programme of research at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Princeton. The programme goes by various names, reflecting the multiple sources of its ideas: Univalent Foundations, infinity-topos theory, intensional dependent type theory and, the name I shall use here, homotopy type theory. One key motivation is to produce a foundational language which allows much closer contact with the frontiers of mainstream mathematical research. The status quo has us rest content with a 'material' set theory, grounded on the predicate calculus, which is understood to allow the construction of surrogates for any mathematical entity, from Galois representations to Kahler metrics, however baroque such constructions would be if anyone cared to provide them. Homotopy type theory's aim is to provide a much more natural formalisation of mathematics.

Careers: Jane Street Presentation

Make sure that you sign up for the even by filling in this form!

Jane Street are coming to give a talk to WMS members on Monday 25th Feb (Week 8) at 6pm in MS.03. During the talk, you can learn more about what Jane Street do, find out about the questions they ask in their interview process and get free Domino's Pizza.

Jane Street hire year round and predominately take graduates who are great at problem solving, so if you are still looking for something to do over the summer or for a job later this year, you should check them out!

Jane Street is a quantitative proprietary trading firm that operates around the clock and around the globe. We bring a deep understanding of markets, a scientific approach, and innovative technology to bear on the problem of trading profitably in the world's highly competitive financial markets.

The culture at Jane Street is open, informal, intellectual, and fun. You can wear a T-shirt and jeans to the office every day, the kitchen is stocked, and the debates are lively. Teaching and learning are everywhere: organized classes and seminars, freewheeling discussions, intensive one-on-one mentorship. Advancement is rapid; there are always more responsibilities waiting when you're ready for them, more ideas to pursue if you have the tenacity to follow through. Our flat structure means your ideas matter, not your job title.

Jane Street doesn’t seek outside investment and doesn’t have customers. Our growth comes from hiring and training amazing people and giving them the tools they need to innovate.

DG:= <Predicting Football Results> with Atass Sports

Click attending of the Facebook event here so we have an idea for numbers for the free food!

The venue of this event has been moved to MS.01!

In week 6, we have a special Discussion Group run in conjunction with our primary sponsor, Atass Sports. This week, Richard Hill will come and discuss the topic of Predicting Football Results, on Monday 11th Feb at 6pm in MS.01.

This topic is suitable for first years and above.

For as long as there has been competitive football, spectators have tried to predict match outcomes in advance - both for entertainment and for financial gain. However, only with the development of modern statistical techniques (coupled with advances in computing) has it become possible to build sophisticated forecasting models that can accurately assess the probability of each possible scoreline. The output of such models can be compared against the "market view" expressed by traders on an online betting exchange, thereby highlighting promising betting opportunities.

The Warwick Maths Society is sponsored by Atass Sports. For more information on Atass, and for opportunities for internships and graduate programmes, visit Atass-Sports.co.uk or contact Richard Hill at rich.hill@atassltd.co.uk

ATASS Sports is a statistical research consultancy providing quality modelling and analysis for the sports industry. Atass combines expertise in statistical analysis and research with in-depth sports knowledge, to provide statistical forecasting, probability evaluation and enhanced understanding of professional sports.

Teach First

Teach First is an independent charity that provides the training and support to enable high-calibre graduates to make a real impact in addressing one of the UK’s most damaging social issues, educational disadvantage. At the same time, while they are transforming the lives of young people in schools around the country, Teach First helps graduates to dramatically enhance their own career potential, in schools and elsewhere, and become part of a movement that is effecting profound change throughout the UK.

Few other options offer the same degree of genuine responsibility so early. And rarely, if ever, will graduates have the opportunity to make such a direct and important impact.

To find out more please visit http://www.teachfirst.org.uk/TFHome/ or contact your Graduate Recruiter, Ollie, directly at olongworth@teachfirst.org.uk
