Save pure mathematics at the VU University Amsterdam

I appeal to the Department of Mathematics, the Faculty of Sciences, and the Executive Board of the VU University Amsterdam to repeal the plan to close the Geometry Section. Proceeding with the proposal as it stands would severely damage the quality of research and teaching in mathematics at the VU.

Laying off capable tenured faculty and hiring new faculty at the same time is intolerable.
