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.

Re: What next???

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???

What what? I am asking for an orientation to what should I do next.

Re: What next???

Almost anything.

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

Calculus mostly!

Re: What next???

So? What do you propose?

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.

Hi bobbym

I will surely ask you if I get really,really stuck.

That is not what I meant. I do not anticipate you getting stuck.

hi bobbym

Yes,I know what you meant by your post,but I'm gonna just guess the method.

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

Ok.When will you post the problem?

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.
