The UMS formally condemns the University of Leicester's plans to cease research activities in Pure Mathematics. In addition to being a beautiful subject on its own which trains its students in thinking clearly and abstractly, pure mathematics have uncovered many connections in other scientific disciplines, and we are convinced that a familiarity with logic and abstraction is an invaluable part of a well-rounded education. The UMS hopes to see research in Pure Mathematics continue in institutions around the world for centuries to come.
