Winners Mathekalender 2020
Every year, 4TU.AMI joins forces with the Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+ organizing the Mathekalender. This annual, digital advent calendar contains 24 challenging puzzles, aimed at curious high school students, university students, teachers, and everyone interested. From 1 to 24 December, a Christmas-themed math puzzle is published each day. Points can be scored by submitting the correct answer the same day (5 points), the following day (3 points) or any other day before the start of the new year (1 point). Prizes are awarded by drawing lots, where the number of lots corresponds to the number of points acquired by solving the challenges.

New 4TU.AMI PR/communication advisor
After graduating with an MSc degree in Applied Mathematics from the UT in 2006, Pim did a PhD in the Algorithms & Complexity group at Durham University (England) followed by a 4-year postdoc in the Algorithms Research group at the University of Bergen (Norway). His research focused on algorithmic graph theory and parameterized complexity. During his time as an MSc and PhD student, Pim was involved in outreach activities and taught in secondary schools both in the Netherlands and England. In 2014, Pim took up a lecturer position at Hogeschool Rotterdam. He then joined ORTEC in 2017, where he worked as an Operations Research Engineer in the team responsible for the development of ORTEC’s vehicle routing software. As of September 2020, Pim is a lecturer at the Department of Applied Mathematics at the UT.

Winnaar Mathekalender 2019
Op 9 juli 2020 kreeg Marijn Adriaanse samen met nog zes andere klasgenoten van het Norbertus Gertrudis Lyceum zijn vwo-diploma uitgereikt door zijn klassenmentor Pelle Pauwels. Uit de toespraak van zijn mentor bleek de veelzijdigheid van Marijn: naast zijn talenten voor de β-vakken heeft hij ook aanleg voor geschiedenis en Latijn. De reden dat 4TU.AMI aanwezig was bij deze plechtigheid is dat Marijn samen met Kevin van Dijk van het Stedelijk Gymnasium in Nijmegen, winnaar is geworden van de Mathekalender-wedstrijd van afgelopen december en wij willen hen daarmee hartelijk feliciteren. Marijn gaat komend jaar elektrotechniek studeren in Delft en 4TU.AMI wenst hem een goede studietijd toe.

Onderzoek zandstorm TU Delft
Plots ligt er een laagje bruingeel zand op je auto, en kleurt de lucht oranjerood. De buurvrouw, die met haar boodschappentrolley voorbijloopt, drukt een sjaal tegen d’r mond. En uit je telefoon ontsnapt een schelle, harde pieptoon: een berichtje van de overheid. Houd ramen en deuren gesloten. Het is een realiteit waar niemand in China meer van opkijkt. Het land gaat namelijk regelmatig gebukt onder grote, hevige zandstormen. De afgelopen jaren deed Jianbing Jin (TU Delft) onderzoek naar dit alles verlammende fenomeen. Hij zocht uit hoe en wáár zanddeeltjes de lucht instuiven.
