### Hi

I'm a CS and math major at Virginia Tech, currently a sophomore.  I am looking for a forum where I can ask some advanced questions.  Right now I am taking differential equations, multi variable calc, and intro to proofs, and next semester will be taking advanced calc, modern algebra, and linear algebra (two of which sound deceptively easy).  I tried looking through some posts on the forum, and it seems to be mostly lower level math, but there were a few higher calc questions.

For the most part, I am into theory based math, proofs.  I have been thinking about making a "request-a-proof" site, or something of the like, but if it turns to be like anything else I've created, it would be an udder flop (mostly due to lack of motivation).  So right now, I just do the ones that interest me.  For example, I never understood why x^0 (where x <> 0) was 1 until I proved it.  So if you have a proof you want to see, by all means, I'll give it my best shot.

I also started my programming career on a ti-83 doing basic, now becoming quite a master at it, so if anyone needs any help in making math programs, I could be of assistance.

Anyways, that's me in a nutshell.

"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

Hi Ricky and welcome to the forum!

"Request-a-proof" ? ... wow ... there are a few unanswered proof requests already. Here, here, ... (in fact just do a search for "proof" in the "Help Me!" section)

Anyway, it sounds like it is going to be great having you here, Ricky.

Bit dangerous that one - I have a backlogged list of things for the website!

I miss your voice, Ricky. Suppose you never liked my 1 post to begin with. But still, can't you sort'a enlighten me or something.

I see clearly now, the universe have the black dots, Thus I am on my way of inventing this remedy...
