MARTA SANZ SOLÉ
In my second life, I don’t know whether
I would choose mathematics. I have always
thought of mathematics as my job and not as
my life. Yet I have devoted days and nights
to mathematics and have worked very
intensively on research.
I like challenges and I view mathematics as a very difficult and challenging subject. When I think back, I was always motivated by challenges and I recall how I admired orchestra conductors and pilots, such as Saint Exupéry. When I discovered analysis I found it a wonderful subject, I like to put all the epsilons together, using meticulous computations.
