Re: What's your routine when studying math

I start by clearing out any possible distractions, so I switch of my telephone, shut down my computer and put them away. After that I place my sitting pillow on the ground and gather the essentials. Paper, pencil and so forth. Then I get the books needed from my book chest and any references I may n...

Re: Well it's 4:30 am

I'd suggest doing a different cardiovascular exercise each day of the week. A few I do: Swimming, Jogging, Running, Walking, Yoga, Cycling, Hiking and so forth... this'll be able to help you engaged since there's less repetition day in day out. Another thing I'd do is eat less then you need, eat abo...

Re: You are the last person left on earth. What do you do?

To start of with, I'd set up a way to signal my survival to the outside world. Since it's not likely that you'd actually 'know' that every other human being has passed away, simply that everyone in your vicinity has passed away doesn't suggest that it's global. So, I'd set up a radio broadcast and p...

Re: Today I Learned

That I could use cover-paper to colour code my collection of books... and how to bake a bread, took a few tries, but after experimenting, I've got my self a perfect bread that's good for twenty-ish slices.

Oh and that every regular polygon is cyclic... I didn't know that.

Re: Math Books

Hey, I've been looking at grad schools recently, and many of them require that you be able to read mathematical papers in German, French, or Russian. I've taken a semester of German, so I know a little bit. Does anyone have recommendations for some lower level books in German for me to start on? My...

Re: PhD in hand

Congratulations! And those are very interesting articles, they'd probably be even more interesting if I could understand it all.

Re: Math Books

Can anyone give me any suggestions for a good problem based calculus book? I already have Calculus (3th Ed) by Michael Spivak; which I really like, but would love to have a few more problems to work with (in the same style) for pretty much every chapter. In other words... I guess I'm looking for a b...

Re: Do you make up stories in your head?

Do you ever make up fantasies or stories in your head that you do not take part in? It seems like a lot of people don't after childhood (or maybe they just don't admit it, I don't know). It seems like once you have grown up, it is not considered "normal" to make up stories in your head (u...
