|| VIII.6.I-V | ADVICE TO A YOUNG MATHEMATICIAN ||
The most important thing that a young Mathematician needs to learn is of course Mathematics . However , it can also be very valuable to learn from the experiences of other Mathematicians .
The five contributors to this article were asked to draw on their experiences of Mathematical life and research , and to offer advice that they might have liked to receive when they were just setting out on their careers .
The resulting contributions were every bit as interesting as we had expected ; what was more surprising was that there was remarkably little overlap between the contributions .
So here they are , five gems intended for young Mathematicians but surely destined to be read and enjoyed by Mathematicians of all ages .
