Terry Tao on 7.30 Report

Last night Terry Tao, dubbed as the "Mozart of Maths" by the Sydney Morning Herald, appeared on the ABC's 7.30 Report. Terry's appearance was prompted by his receipt a month ago of the world's most prestigious prize in mathematics - the Fields Medal. He is also currently in Sydney to attend the 50th anniversary conference of the Australian Mathematical Society.

If you missed it, here is the transcript of his interview.

The Australian newspaper also featured Dr Tao in their Higher Education Supplement yesterday wherein the former South Australian expressed a concern for mathematics education in Australia.
