I've been asked to introduce myself.
Well basically, I joined this forum to help me become a better mathematician. I have always been quite good at understanding theory but an aspect of my game I'd like to improve significantly is to be able to solve more and more challenging problems. Long term, I'd like to become a contributor to this forum by helping others with their problems as this would indeed give me further practice.
I've set myself a goal of seeing how much I can possible improve as a mathematician in one year. During this year I will decide whether I want to pursue a career in mathematics or head off in some other direction.
I am interested primarily in pure mathematics. It was the rigour found in the first course I took in analysis which made me fall in love with the subject. I am also deeply interested in the field of number theory and discrete maths. One possible career option I'd like to explore is something to do with cryptography.
I guess this is enough for now.
