i need more mathematician friends on mastodon. can you boost this for visibility, please?

@oneofvalts paging @ColinTheMathmo and the entire mathstodon instance.

@jens ah, didn't know about mathstodon instance. sounds interesting.

@oneofvalts @jens Nor did I, but now I'm following a couple of Mathstodon members.

I should really review the instances. I've been here a while and, although I don't want to leave this one, I might want to branch out.

@oneofvalts *nods in the direction of @lorxus *

@troodon @oneofvalts I what

oh, hi!

@oneofvalts hey ho,

I did my PhD in mathematics.

@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.

@oneofvalts this is beautiful

@lukas i agree, i actually am fairly shocked :)

@oneofvalts Check out @ColinTheMathmo and Mathstodon.xyz.

@dredmorbius noted, thanks! :)

I am one of those, and same.

@jmw150 @oneofvalts Friendless¹ mathematician thread!

¹: "friendless" is defined as having insufficiently many friends, i.e. ∃n : ℕ, ∑_{friend} 1 < n

@oneofvalts Have you checked out https://mathstodon.xyz/explore already?

@patrick actually discovered today, by the redirection of an early reply to this post. thank you!

i should definitely dive in there.

@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.

@oneofvalts YES, I CAN! 😁

@oneofvalts how much maths? :ablobcatsweatsip:

@critical lots, i guess :)

@oneofvalts Done!

@oneofvalts browse instances.social to see if you can find a dedicated instance.

@oneofvalts @ottaross I shall call upon @JordiGH for help with your request

@gnomon @oneofvalts @ottaross (and inf lolololol)

@oneofvalts +1

@oneofvalts Happy to try being friendly, sure.

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...)

I'm not weird

@nartagnan maybe take a marker with you? :)

@oneofvalts@mastodon.sdf.org maybe you should check out mathstodon.xyz's explore page ;)

@oneofvalts@mastodon.sdf.org how much math? I'm taking Algebra 1 or 2 IIRC. (high school)

@oneofvalts hey, I'm currently in my second semester of mathematics :-)

@oneofvalts I don't consider myself (yet) a proper mathematician but I'm interested on them and I'm starting to learn more. I'm especially interested in theoretical CS, mathematical logic, proofs and and proof assistants (I like proofs). I don't post many math related content but it's because I don't have many mathematical friends here (but I want them too!)

@Sugui we should toot proofs in coq!

@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)

@berber sounds superbe!

I am a mathematician friend!

@oneofvalts should we boost it exponentially or you are fine even with a logarithmic growth? 😅

@gubi i wasn't expecting this at all. i was fine with log log ahaha

sarcasm: alternative approach

@oneofvalts, I think that you are doing this wrong. Here's a #tutorial from the '60 on how to get #popular among #mathematicians:

Tom Lehrer's live performance of "Lobachevsky"

sarcasm: alternative approach

@walter this is hilarious :D

@oneofvalts

hey, thanks for your question - I found many interesting things in the replies to it !

@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 Try @amiloradovsky ?

I can't describe his level to you though! :-)

@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.
