Restarting Book Sales

After a brief interruption, the FMF is proud to announce that we have partnered with WO4YOU to once again provide our members with textbooks for your courses at a 15% discount. We offer textbooks for the bachelor programmes in (applied) mathematics, (applied) physics and astronomy. You can also have your books delivered to the FMF room.

Periodiek Opt-in

It has recently been decided that our magazine, the Periodiek, will shift towards being available predominantly online, to reduce paper usage. As such, you will no longer receive the Periodiek physically unless you opt-in. You can do so here. Otherwise, you can always check out the Periodiek at and we will send you an email when a new issue is published!
