How do you determine the quantity of a thing mixed up in other things to a point where the sum total gets blurred by the myriad factors of an æquation?
John Cannerway - Fri, 02 Jun 2017 14:34:58 EST ID:BI+jncva No.15520 Ignore Report Quick Reply
Try stating your question more clearly, if possible. It sounds more like you're not able to determine the quality of that thing because your definition of what thing is lacks the enough specificity for you to even know where to start when trying to extract the appropriate information from where and in what ways to manipulate it to give you a quantity for the exact thing it is you are trying to determine the quantity of.

I want to add that some German words are things that would be lengthy phrases in english. For instance a famous theorem is Hilbert's Nullstellensatz theorem, which roughly and shittily translated in to english means the zeroes places theorem.

German isn't a better language for math, because mathematical objects are independent of language.

I do agree, but I also think that sometimes language gets in the way of learning.

for instance, closed/open/clopen in topology (using words which have binary meaning to talk about objects which arent binary)

or 'imaginary' numbers

Those things arent hurdles for math people, but I do think they are hurdles when someone is trying to learn math

It takes roughly as long to say Nullstellensatz as it does to say Zeros Places Theorem. All that German accomplishes is reducing the number of spaces you have to type.

Yes, but there are fewer "z" letters in Zero Places Theorem, and the space key is already one of the most used buttons. It is more economic and eco-friendly over the long run to use long and complicated words that have lots of "z" and 15+ characters.

If you really want to go deep inside Linear Algebra I suggest you study a little of Abstract Algebra. I used Fraleigh, it's a good book, you can find it online as a .pdf. With Abstract Algebra you will gain a deep knowledge about algebraic structures, such as groups rings and fields (as well as he other intermediate structures), and trust me Linear Algebra will become clearer. After that you will be able to go deeper into whatever you want, for instance Non-Linear Algebra or Group theory.

I am at the end of an algebraic topology course right now, and my professor doesn't make much sense. I think I understand homology and cohomology pretty well, but spectral sequences have really fucked my brain. Since it's your area, do you think you can recommend a survey paper or something on it.

Other topics in algebraic topology have useful applications. Why should I give a shit about spectral sequences? Of course they are a generalization, but it seems it only has use for higher homotopy groups and etc.

Why should anyone outside of mathematics care about higher homotopy groups? They are notoriously difficult and at least to this day don't have the same applications that their homological counterparts enjoy.

>Having a hot wife that loves me and a large bank account.

Women are incapable of love, except for themselves and their biological children.

If you have a sufficiently large bank account, however, you can easily convince one to pretend to love you. That's quite common.

Both of those systems you mention seem to be exploiting the idea of different "levels" of sets, which sounds like a type-theoretic way of dealing with the problem to me.

Yeah, there are different "types" of objects, but often times it's not apparent what a given object is. From this perspective you could make an argument that every set theory is a type theory, with just one type in consideration, which seems to obfuscate what distinguishes what is considered type theory as opposed to something else. In type theory you know exactly what sort of element you are dealing with, while this might not be the case in set theory.

Get a textbook, read it, and do the exercises. You can also do online courses. Even though it's not arithmetic I would recommend doing a basic logic textbook since it's fun and important for mathematical reasoning. Math is some kind of meta-language, so you will advance faster if you have people you can talk to about it. In person is probably better than online, but even that is great. You can check out mathexchange or just post whatever you're thinking about on here.

Homology is bullshit, cohomology is bullshit. The only reason people care about that stuff nowadays is for some data analysis purposes, so that means people are interested in actually computing homology groups of spaces rather than this deeper stuff. The only people that care are topology nerds.
