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

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 smiley - smiley

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

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 smiley - smiley

I will add your name tommorrow.


Group theory -- extended?

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*... smiley - smiley

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. smiley - smiley

Tell me more about this wheel smiley - biggrin

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...

QUIRKS! smiley - bigeyes

Defining oo and 0 / 0 is a little more than a quirk I think. smiley - winkeye

Likewise.

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

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:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A568613

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 smiley - smiley.

Me too smiley - smiley

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 smiley - smiley )

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.
