$S^3$: CMIT's Third Foundation Anniversary.

Three years ago, on the 28th of September, 2018 the Club of Mathematics, IISER Thiruvananthapuram (CMIT), was founded with the intention of providing a platform for the students to discuss and learn where they felt free to express themselves. We also wanted to make it possible for them to indulge in various activities and events throughout the year. We have been organising talk series, peer discussion sessions, math-based contests, and various other events to facilitate a mathematical community among students at the institute, alongside the regular academic curriculum. Every year, we celebrate the end of September as $S^n$, and this year, we have a host of things to talk about as a part of $S^3$.

What is $S^3$?   CMIT's foundation anniversary celebrations are called $S^n$, where $n$ stands for the $n^{th}$ anniversary™. In mathematics, we also denote by $S^3$ the topological space of the unit $3$-sphere, the set of points equidistant from a fixed central point in a $4$-dimensional Euclidean space, or the $3$-dimensional boundary of a four-dimensional ball.

CMIT $\pi$-uiz 2.0: The CMIT Math trivia quiz is back with its second edition. The quiz will be hosted online by Shivam Bhargava and Rohit Menon on 03rd October, 2021 (Sunday) at 5:00 PM IST via Google Meet. Drop us an email for the link.

Newsletter: To commemorate our third anniversary, we’re bringing to you the first edition of our brand-new newsletter, ‘Donut’. We have been fervently greeted with an influx of articles from the students, and our designers and editors worked their best to make this a reality. We hope you enjoy the inaugural issue as we continue to bring regular editions in the future. We would love to have your feedback and submissions for future editions. Visit the newsletter page for more info.

New website launch: Lastly, CMIT now has a new website! We have moved to a new space under the IISERTVM domain, with a new, refreshing, and more functional website. We take this opportunity to inaugurate our new website as well. CMIT will now be available on cmit.iisertvm.ac.in. We look forward to all the wonderful things the club has yet to achieve with your support.
