|Prof. Ian Stewart; Mathematics Dept., University of Warwick, UK|
|At every step in a mathematical investigation you are faced with choices: some choices lead in fruitful directions, most do not. So mathematics is a maze - a logical maze, a mental maze which attempts to parallel the maze of cause and effect that we observe in the natural world.
