The article highlights some new mathematical postal stamps including, Pierre Fermat, Fullereness and Otto Yulievich Schmidt. Pierre Fermat contributes something in the mathematical field through his number theory and analytic geometry. In addition, fullerenes stamp is taken from the architect Buckminster Fuller. Furthermore, Schmidt, an algebraist, shares something in the mathematical field through his contribution on the Krull-Schmidt theorem.
