How to Become a Pure Mathematician Page 2 of 66

It's like if you want to be a good pianist, you have to do a lot of scales and a lot of practice, and a lot of that is kind of boring, it's work. But you need to do that before you can really be very expressive and really play beautiful music. You have to go through that phase of practice and drill.

Here is a guide to study pure mathematics.html).nl/~thooft/theorist. • Assumed knowledge. Note the highlighted list does NOT indicate those books are good for beginners. I don't claim that this list makes you a good pure mathematician. Yup. Shouting eureka is the high point of a mathematician. I listed more than enough so that you can scout around to find one that you feel comfortable with. since I belong to the complement of good pure mathematician.. I also highlighted several books that you would really like to keep in your own library.. beware of the symbols from different books in such cases. or even more. Scientists in other fields and engineers may skip first or second stages and begin at later stages. especially in higher level courses. Euclidean geometry. It relies on two factors: well written or cheap. I list more material in each field for more advanced studies). It takes approximately one year for each stage (except for stage 4. These two factors are not mutually exclusive. for a full time student.phys. and recommended a few notes or texts. Moreover. This list is written for those who want to learn mathematics but have no idea how to start.geocities. a list for beginners. Some people like to consult a few books. My selection will not be bounded by any publication press. perhaps. Part time students may double the time. Things may come to your head suddenly. The aim of this page is to introduce what different branches of mathematics are.e. If you decided to attend a class.How to Become a Pure Mathematician Page 5 of 66 About this article: What for? OK. basic trigonometry.uu. I shall try to keep this list up to date whenever I exist. sometimes I get a HK \$2xx book and Amazon says its US \$1xx (~HK \$7xx). What's the order of courses to study within a stage doesn't really matter. • Time.. • "Axiom of choice". don't expect the professor can teach. Free material excluded. Moreover. it always happen. But its better for anyone to understand most parts of stage n before proceeding to n+1. Note the price factor may by irrelevant. but hopefully it will be clear as you proceed. there is a way to become a good theoretical physicist (http://www. some Chinese press in mainland China http://hk. it often happens that you couldn't solve a problem within an hour. One doesn't need to read every listed book within a subject to master the subject.htm • . I assumed you have high school mathematics background (i. You probably like to read those books again and again in your life.com/mathphyweb/puremath. usually. I make no attempt to define what pure mathematics is. with the only difference is.

Introductory Number Theory: Gauss once said "mathematics is the queen of sciences and number theory the queen of mathematics." G..H. Hardy once said in A Mathematician's Apology that, "If the theory of numbers could be employed for any practical and obviously honourable purpose, if it could be turned directly to the furtherance of human happiness or the relief of human suffering, as physiology and even chemistry can, then surely neither Gauss nor any other mathematician would have been so foolish as to decry or regret such applications. But science works for evil as well as for good (and particularly, of course, in time of war); and both Gauss and less mathematicians may be justified in rejoicing that there is one science at any rate, and that their own, whose very remoteness from ordinary human activities should keep it gentle and clean." He wrote it on November 1940. It turned out coding theory, where algebra and number theory are applied, played a key role in the World War II. Adler A. and Cloury J.E.

Topology (FREE! http://www.maths.tcd.ie/~dwilkins/Courses/212/) Differential Geometry: You may wonder, geometry takes up a large portion in high school mathematics, why isn't there any geometry course in the first two stages? In fact, geometry is kind of imbedded in stage two calculus (several variables) and linear algebra courses, they are usually assumed and will be used for this course. Here differential calculus is used to study geometry. Key things to study: multilinear algebra, curvature and torsion, Serret-Frenet equation, fundamental theorem of curves, Poincaré Index theorem (plane and surface), exterior calculus, Gauss' theorema egregium, geodesics, Gauss-Bonnet theorem. Moving frame, due to Élie Cartan, is an approach to geometry of surface. According to my lecturer John Steele, it is "computationally the easiest, notationally the neatest, aesthetically the best, makes the definitions more natural and the proofs of the two major theorems easier. The moving frame method also points the way towards several important ideas in modern differential geometry and theoretical physics. The downside (if there is one) is the reliance on exterior calculus of differential forms." O'Neill, for example, uses this approach and he manages to prove Gauss' theorema egregium in half page, see p.281. In general: http://hk.geocities.com/mathphyweb/puremath.htm
