Math -- A list for mathematical conversations.


About Math
English (USA)

Post papers that you find interesting. We will discuss them.

We have some ground rules:

It's easier to find people who aren't assholes and teach them a little bit of math, rather than trying to find people who know a lot of math and teaching them not to be assholes.

There are no stupid questions, and we're interested in everyone's opinion. In particular, you are encouraged to subscribe to even if you do not have much mathematical training. If you're interested in watching math being done, that's all that matters.

There will be no status games, and no arguments from authority. Nobody should sign up to because they want to impress anyone, and nobody can cite their professional status or mathematical training to make someone else shut up.

If any publishable research is done on, we will decide by consensus whose names should be on any papers that result.
