Want I to be!

 

Can you tell me where should I start in order?

I have normal knowledge of basic maths, I want to be a Math Genius, I am!

Where should I start?

 

 

Tell me? Tell me?

 

Thanks of the help very much, appreciating this help of you're.

I know like what they teach us in school and college.

I know plus, subtract, divide, multiple, i know theorems, probability, little of limits and derivatives, vectors, like that.

 

I want to go in maths so deep, like water in a ocean.

I have no idea what makes a genius, or exactly how genius is defined. To me it means having original deep thoughts that no one else would have. Even then, I am not sure this automatically means genius.

 

I have not personally met anyone who would call themselves a genius. For most of us mathematics is very hard and takes a lot of work.

 

So my best advice is exactly that, work hard, read a lot and talk to people. Then with a bit of luck you will start producing publishable work.

So kind brother of me, tell me links that i would want to follow.

I only here to ask that what should i study, tell me names or principle, or forumale name so that i buy book from libracy.

You know like from starting.

 

 

If you tell me that, i see the greatness in you.

Isn't it a rather obvious approach to look at the courses typically being offered as the next step beyond your current education level and try those topics, possibly by reading the books recommended for those courses?

Agree with Timo - and perhaps as a pre-indication of the depths of maths yet to come you could try reading some of the pop-sci maths books. Martin Gardner is brilliant in everything he has done, Alex's Adventures in Numberland by Alex Belos, Marcus du Sotoy's stuff is good and readable. For some actual practice at a school level you could try the net resource at places like purplemaths and plus.maths.org has news and puzzles

Timo has the right idea.

 

Otherwise here is a list of suggested reading by Cambridge University.

 

Generically my advice would be to get hold of books with a title like "mathematical methods for physics/engineering/science " or something similar. They will tend not to get "bogged down" with the fussy details. but rather present enough for you to get started.

 

The problem will be that certain areas pure mathematics, say abstract algebra and number theory will not really be discussed in these books. The issue of mathematical rigour can be addressed with specialist books if desired once you have a feel for what is going on.

 

The best advice I can really offer is that "one learns mathematics by doing mathematics". Given all the best books and teachers in the world, I still say you can only learn by hard work on paper with pencil.

Brother, Thanks and Merci Beaucou and Danke.

Most of the people have the ability to perform like a math genius but you may be lacking a few very simple but very powerful 'math tools' that people who are smart at math use all the time.

 

It is probably true that most working mathematicians have mastered only a few tricks and techniques. These are then applied over and over again in as many situations as possible.
