Hello and welcome to the Math Help Forum family! What got you interested in cryptography? If you don't end up going down the mathematics route, what other career path(s) are you interested in?
Looking forward to having you join our math family!
Hi All,
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.
Thanks,
MrMeth

Its hard to pin down what got me interested in cryptography to be honest. Generally, I'm intrigued in situations where you can find pattern or meaning in seemingly random data and cryptography is an obvious choice for something of this nature.
The thing is that I'm not really interested in any other career options. I've done intern ships in the financial sector and have opportunities to proceed in this industry when I graduate but I can't really say I have an interest in this sector although it may end up being lucrative in terms of salary.
I'd rather see how far I can go as a mathematician but for this to be worthwhile I must start now applying myself more than I have done up to this point. Hopefully, regular participation in this forum may help this!
