B71 #4: Fields Medal (message from CY Lam)

Terry Tao, the son of 1st-class-honours classmate Grace Leung and husband Billy Tao, recently won the Fields Medal which is treated by many as the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in mathematics.

Half of Terry's genes came from Grace, according to biological textbooks. So we may proudly consider that there is half a Fields Medal in the class.

See the notes given in the website of the Australian Mathematical Society:

B71 #3: Click to magnify (message from CY Lam)

Some people said that they could not read the names of the students in the letter.

I found that with Internet Explorer, you could magnify the letter image by clicking, maybe doubly, to get an icon which when clicked would enable the magnification.

Good luck.
