Main content

According to the motto "Who seeks MATH shall find" the Mathematics Library organizes the input session Recherchieren in der Mathematik for mathematics students, in collaboration with the subject specialist for mathematics from the ETH-Bibliothek and the Verein der Mathematik- und Physikstudierenden (VMP).

The course is in German and takes 90 minutes. It is carefully coordinated with the mandatory session Scientific Works in Mathematics. Both courses together offer a comprehensive insight into writing scientific papers in mathematics.

Registration is required (see link below). There must be at least five registrations for the course to take place. If there are more than thirty registrations, you will be put on a waiting list. (Please, if you are enrolled and realize that you can not attend the course.)
