> (lots of things)

I am currently in a French engineering school. It is actually
one of the best, if not the best :)
To enter this school, there are written and oral exams, the
level of which is quite high. But I come from a math section,
and my exams were rather math-oriented, and now we do not do
maths any more. They say it is only a tool... And now I am
bound to forget all the interesting stuff about prime numbers,
Tchebycheff polynoms (sorry for the mistakes) and non-euclidian
geometry :(
Other students who come from a physics section do not have
this level in maths, and do not need it. And I now have to
learn things they already know.

I think studying math has given me something that an engineer
may lack, but it is not the opinion of my school.
As a result, I have to look at sci.maths and fr.sci.maths to
find interesting problems so that my brain does not get bored.

With best wishes from
