I don't like abstract algebra and only suffer through it to enhance my matrix algebra proficiency. I actually made a C in my Modern Algebra class. While I understood the material enough to actually understand it, well, some professors are worse than others, AND FUCK YOU FRALEIGH YOUR BOOK CAN GO TO HELL YOU KNOW WHAT SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS AND BOTH OF YOU BURN HOW DARE YOU WRITE A GOD-AWFUL BOOK YOU TOO WHOEVER WROTE MY NUMERICAL ANALYSIS BOOK IT'S LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANALYSIS AND ALGORITHMS UGH.
Also, while I like hydrology, I dislike hydraulics. ISN'T THAT FUN? Also, FUCK YOU SERWAY. YOUR CALCULUS BOOK IS AWESOME, SURE, BUT FUCKING WHAT THE HELL TAYLOR'S THEOREM IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT RESULTS OF CALCULUS AND YOU HAVE NOTHING OTHER THAN "a taylor inequality" AND "some taylor sums" FUCK THERE'S A WHOLE GODDAMNED THEOREM TO THIS SHIT THAT YIELDS ALL SORTS OF FUN APPLICATIONS. WHO EVEN GIVES A SHIT ABOUT MEAN VALUE THEOREM IF WE DON'T HAVE TAYLOR'S THEOREM, OH, BUT SOMEHOW MVT GETS MORE OF A SAY?
Hi. I enjoy math, and I've learned that I'm one of those very focused mathematicians: I'm excellent in one area and "mediocre at BEST" in every other area. Hooray for vector spaces! Too bad I'm not too big on topology. I like applied mathematics more than pure mathematics because, frankly, I'm just me and I'm allowed to like X instead of Y. Hey, at least I get what applied math is instead of most people who think it's all the number-crunching like statistics and whatnot.
In particular, I am most interested in the mathematical description of fluids, mostly liquids (in fact, some gases I just outright avoid, especially those on the verge of becoming plasmas), and even more specifically, I like water.
Anyway, I plan on making this a primarily mathematical blog.
Which probably means sparse and few updates. I use LJ for my friends, not for myself. :D
Please, offer any corrections on things you see that are wrong, feel free to horse around and act stupid, or really just whatever. I'm only an undergraduate in math with one more semester, so I'm certainly not the brightest crayon in the box, but then, math is more about discovery to me than this elitist, special thing only a special elite can have.
