Modern Mathematicians: John Horton Conway

I have read many books about famous mathematicians, such as Pythagoras¬†or Gauss, who lived many years ago, however I know little about modern mathematicians. So, I had the idea to start a series where I talk about those at the forefront of today’s research. 595 more words

[Research] Presentations of monoids and groups, basic positive reachability

This follows from this question on Math.StackExchange:


The problem I described in this question is a problem of “basic positive reachability”. If a positive expression… 87 more words


[Research] There is always new parts of math to learn

I used to think that I have “learned” group theory. Later I know how wrong I was. I did learn a part of it in undergraduate school and reviewed it in my first year graduate Algebra class, but I always have new things to learn about group theory, such as tricks on group presentations, which I did not learn enough in class. 40 more words


Proof that any subgroup of index 2 is normal

Let be a subgroup of index 2.

Let and .

If , then , and , hence left coset equals to right coset.

If , then (set minus), and also , thus left coset also equals to right coset. 31 more words

Working with Cayley tables

The aim of this post is to familiarise you well enough with Cayley tables so that in the next post we can really pin down what it means for two groups to be the ‘same’. 1,031 more words
