# h2g2 Maths Lab

Created | Updated Nov 6, 2005

Welcome to the h2g2 Maths Lab, a place to talk about mathematics!

Purpose

The Maths Lab is here to provide a focal point for mathematical discussions.

If you have some mathematical idea or theory that you'd like to discuss with others who share your interest, this is a great place to do it.

If you have a question about maths, whether it's a real-world application, a homework problem, or something you're just curious about, why not post it here? The h2g2 community is a fantastic source of knowledge on all topics, and mathematics is no exception.

If you're thinking of writing a mathematical entry for the Edited Guide, and you want a group of people to bounce ideas around, get feedback, and help hone your entry into an h2g2 masterpiece, then just post here!

If you enjoy mathematical games, brain teasers, numerical riddles, or (God forbid) maths jokes^{1}, then this can be a great place to start a thread and match your wits against your fellow researchers.

Anything else you can think of for which a Maths Lab would be handy...

Membership^{2}

There aren't any special qualifications for being part of the Maths Lab, all you need is to be interested in Mathematics, and want to talk about it. Different levels of experience notwithstanding, we're all students here, so roll up!

^{1}What's purple and commutative?

^{2}Members used to be called RMGs, but nobody seemed sure what that actually stood for. It's still a nice abbreviation to put after your name, if you're into that sort of thing.
