i need more mathematician friends on mastodon. can you boost this for visibility, please?
@tommy greetings! i wasn't actually expecting this much exposure this fast. but i guess it's nice. definitely exciting!
it doesn't write in my bio, so i should probably note, i'm a mathematics student in galatasaray university.
@patrick actually discovered today, by the redirection of an early reply to this post. thank you!
i should definitely dive in there.
@oneofvalts I understand this feeling. Unfortunately the fediverse is mainly focused on few specific topics. I won't get into which these topics are, it should be self-evident. As a mathematician, you may still have more luck than somebody like me, or let's say, someone interested in continental phylosophy :P.
@encelado :D you should meet my friends from philosophy department. though, they should join mastodon first.
but i got your point, yes, it looks a bit intricate.
I'm not weird
I'm not a mathematician, but sometimes when I have free time I do stats and algebra.
(It's difficult when I shower because notes disappear too quicly on the glass panel...)
@oneofvalts Mathematician may be putting it strongly, and my profile is more political, but I know a thing or two about math.
@oneofvalts i am 1 mathematician 👍
(algebra, representation theory, geometry, some algebraic geometry, and obviously i am interested in category theory, but i ain't no expert by any stretch)
@oneofvalts I did my undergrad degree in math and wrote my biology PhD thesis in LaTeX, does that count? 😄
But as others said, check out mathstodon.xyz, scicomm.xyz, and scholar.social. They might have a higher density of math people than other instances
@oneofvalts Great thread!
I am not a mathematician (though I was deeply into baseball stats as a kid and like math in school). Been thinking recently that I need to diversify and expand my Mastodon following, so I am looking at profiles of most people here and following many of you.
If I haven't followed it is likely because you don't toot in English, at least occasionally, or are on an instance that makes following difficult; but it's likely I've bookmarked your profile to consider later.
