I'm new to this site and it struck me as pleasantly surprising that there's a whole set of science&math boards. I am however rather skeptical about the average level of education here, so let's make a little survery:

  1. Age
  2. Degree
  3. Specialty
  4. Dream job/profession
  5. Plans for the near future and long term strategy

I already discuss more about myself than I really should on imageboards. It might be more fun to have people say what some of the most advanced topics are that they have worked on. Are you willing to provide all that imformation about yourself?

Here, have a shitty picture I made.

Why? Unless it's incriminating AIB is literally the best place to tell everything about yourself as long as there's nothing that can be used to deanon you.

  1. 22
  2. high school diploma, no regals
  3. pure chemistry or math
  4. Get into fucking uni, get a good paying job, get a Bs, Ms, PhD and free myself as soon as possible so I can work on what I want. Also get some extra source of income so I can live like a patrician and not plebeian

If you talk about your work and interests enough it becomes possible to recognize someone. There are not too many people in any particular area of math and the number of those people who hang out on imageboards is even smaller.

  1. 25
  2. BS math, in grad school
  3. algebraic topology
  4. I want to do research but I don't know if I really want to be a professor. I kind of want to try starting a company or going "off the grid" and becoming some kind of underground math guru after school. I know, I'm retarded.
  5. Finish grad school, try to make a living doing what I love and maybe help bring about some cool futuristic stuff like mind uploading, or more realistically at least help raise the level of basic math literacy among burnout hippies.

  1. 32
  2. Currently getting a B.Sc. in computer science, also have an unrelated bachelor's degree
  3. Languages: C, Python, Java, R.
  4. Anything where I'm programming something interesting or solving problems with computers, making good money, and being appreciated at work
  5. In the next few weeks I'll be joining the Air Guard. They'll give me top secret clearance and train me in cyber warfare. I'll use the clearance, training and experience as a springboard to nice jobs in the private sector.

I have a master's degree in mathijuana, my areas are set theory/logic and topology. I want to start my own business at some point.


Pop quiz: Compute the reduced homology with integer coefficients of a disc with the interiors of two subdiscs removed, and then has all three boundary circles identified by a continuous homeomorphism.

Same man...same I am litterally the same age with the same goals. I am going back to community college after work for 2 years to finish up and transfer to my local state uni.

I wish you luck my friend also I suggest using CLEP to test out of alot of the credts you need for your degree. Cheers and good luck my friend.

  1. 20
  2. Computer Engineering
  3. Well I'm also going for a maths minor so I guess maths for now. I'm starting to like Electromagnetics though
  4. Maybe embedded stuff, I haven't thought about it a lot yet but it seems to be an ok mix of hardware and software
  5. Well currently I'm trying to graduate on time so they don't take any scholarships away. Being late would complicate things a lot as I don't have any money with which to finish whatever classes I might have left with. Long term I'm still not sure. Maybe I'll go for doctorate in Germany eventually and stay there afterwards. Though that would be painful as I still have a lot of friends and day one niggas here

If "here" is the United States then you should definitely get your PhD there. It is much easier to get a job in Germany with a US degree than it is to do anything with a German degree. I don't know why exactly this is, but there are different levels of prestige.

How I'll afford it here in the US is a pretty important question. I realize there are scholarships and all but I gotta figure all of it out. Also if reputation is important can I not simply wave around a US Bachelor's degree in Germany if for some reason they don't like German degrees?

You shouldn't be paying for graduate school in anything technical. They should be paying you to teach and covering your tuition.

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.

This. If you get admitted you should get a teaching position with a survival wage. I am paid 20,000$ a year with tuition and health insurance free, and 100 students.

I could get more if I were to quit early and get a masters degree

>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.
