What next???

Hi guys

There are a lot of you here that are experts at math and what I wanted to know is what would you recommend to me to do next based on what you know I know.

That could really help ao that I don't just skip from topic to topic.

Hi anonimnystefy;

What?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: What next???

Almost anything.

Number theory,classic geometry,analytic geometry,topology,graph theory,calculus,statistics and probability,...

Calculus mostly!

Re: What next???

You already know the type of mathematics that gAr and I do. I have gone and on and on about it. To follow it you need to get much stronger in computational mathematics. For your theoretical mathematics I recommend getting stronger in Calculus and Linear Algebra.

Re: What next???

Thought so,but what do I do next for calculus?

Btw,could you give me a calculus problem to work on by myself (but slightly harder)? I want to see how I can cope with finding and learning by myself.

I will come up with a problem but I do not agree with the trying to see how well you cope idea.

There are two important results for you in the guess the term thread.

Re: What next???

Yes, try to get a solution. Do not hesitate to try any method. You may or may not get it but the work is what is important.

That is too bad. There is a funny scene in the movie that is so typical of many strong math types.
