Sign up to the h2g2 MI by posting to this thread with the following information: Your name, the A-numbers of two mathematical articles or that of a mathematical project, what field(s) of maths you enjoy most.

Hmm... didn't have the patience to wait for my mathematics to be edited ( http://www.h2g2.com/A483446 ), so I'll boot up a project instead

I'm thinking of taking on one of my favourite fields: Abstract Algebra (aka Algebraic Structures). I've started a central page at http://www.h2g2.com/A490060 and would have started on the entries if my mother wasn't urging to get on the computer immediately...

My interests in mathematics are manifold and above all _pure_ -- I've done some work previously (for a major school paper) on Fermat's Last Theorem and the mathematics involved, and I enjoy number theory (including cryptography), logic and algebraic structures immensely...

Thanks for signing up and I apologise for the delay. I am heading towards exams and so time is being swallowed

I am glad to see you are sane enough to like pure maths

Group Theory is going to get its own central MI project after Algebra and Set Theory are done but your project will be valuble in outlining the ideas behind groups

I will add your name tommorrow.

### Group theory -- extended?

Exile Posted Dec 15, 2000

Why not put 'my' project in as that project? Groups are only the start of the fun of it -- personally I love the whole staircase of different structures, ending in the algebraic wheel (an entity where oo - oo and 0/0 are defined as well) in which *no* operations are disallowed *at* *all*...

Joe aka Arnia, Muse, Keeper, MathEd, Guru and Zen Cook (business is booming) Posted Dec 16, 2000

No, run your project independently.

If you could use your project to outline the reasoning and uses behind the concept of structure then it will give us ways to jump off on to other projects on each individual structure.

We don't want to confuse people or overwhelm them.

Tell me more about this wheel

### Group theory -- extended?

Exile Posted Dec 16, 2000

I'll get there... I'll get there...

Basically, it's one of the hottest things in current algebra research; I've got a master's thesis from the Stockholm University outlining what it can do and what algebraic and topological quirks it has...

Likewise.

If you need any help on anything, especially topological or geometrical, then I'll be only too happy to oblige

You can sign me up too if you like, although I haven't got two mathematical articles on H2G2. I have written a few articles that might be appropriate, but they're in TeX form which doesn't convert too well to HTML (and they also have some pictures). I've written an introduction to complex numbers aimed at 15-16 year olds and recently an introduction to Galois theory aimed at 18-19 year olds. You can get to both of these articles from my userspace (the second one is currently in PDF format only). There's also my edited entry on Arrow's Possibility Theorem which is on the boundary between being a mathematical entry and a politics/economics one:

My approach to maths is via geometrically intuitive methods, and my main interests are in topology and complex analysis. Hopefully I'll be doing a PhD in one of these next year, we'll see .

Me too

Lemme see...2 mathematical entries...well...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A593552 (Bigger and Bigger Infinities)

is very mathematical,

http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A533927 (Self-reference)

has some maths in it, and I contributed to:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A581096 (Paradox)

with some mathsy stuff.

I'm most interested in topology, probably the low-dimensional versions ("low" meaning 3 or 4 apparently )

i'd like to sign up

i've posted in some crypto threads

i like group theory and transcendental numbers puzzle me

(i'm working on a proof that all freecell games are solvable using quotient groups - but i'm not optimistic)

Dogster,

Sorry for not getting back to you earlier, but have you not tried "Tex to Html"? There's a link to it on the front page of the Maths Institute - it seems to work quite well for me, at least.

Rob Galileo, and my interests are in Set theory/ tensor calculus/number theory.From Canada...

sign me up.

If the institute still exists.

Key: Complain about this post
