We are all part of the community of mathematicians. We use our own type of language and special terms, we gather together for events of mutual interest, and we even have our own mathematical “rock stars” whom we collectively hold in high regard. Thus, like members of any community, we strive to be individually recognised, and be the best. So what make the “best” mathematician? What is it that we are all striving for? What elevates a mathematician to a position of fame and renown? How do we get there, and do we even want to be there?

This talk is part of the C.U. Ethics in Mathematics Society (CUEiMS) series.
