# Math Is In The Air April 2017 Column

Hello again by Math Is In The Air. This is our review of posts written in April 2017. Before them, just a brief introduction for thos who don’t know us.

* Math Is In The Air (MIITA) *is an italian project started at the beginning of 2015 as a blog on Applied Mathematics. It had just a few collaborators and a bunch of posts. The italian website, at the moment, has 20 collaborators and more than 130 published posts on advanced applied Mathematics. At the beginning of 2016 we started our english blog and we are trying to expand it.

In this column we would like to present the posts we published in February 2017 in the italian blog. I will try to give you an idea of the content and I will redirect to the original post. Are you ready?
