To delay my going to bed I thought I'd introduce myself...

I'm Erik, 27 years old, from Sweden. Currently in my first year of master's studies at Stockholm university, even though I haven't finished my bachelor's thesis yet... (Our system is bsc 3yrs + msc 2yrs.)

I haven't studied a lot of mathematics really, at least not formally. Some real and complex analysis, algebra (groups, rings, GT), ode's and combinatorics. I've started several more interesting classes but never finished them - not that I'm implying that I would have aced them had I only finished them or anything :P Anyway, writing my thesis like I said, on the computation of Galois groups, also taking a course in GT which is quite easy since I've already read up on the theory on my own, and then graph theory. Oh, and stochastic processes...

My interest is in algebra even though I haven't studied it formally, I've read some tidbits on my own though. My project for the year is to finish Lang's Algebra before next semester, and hopefully finish a book each on number theory and homological algebra before the year, as well as topology (cursory). My original plan with math was to pursue a ph.d. but I realized after trying to understand the proof of Bézout's theorem that I'm nowhere near good enough to possibly get accepted into a program. So now I'm having a bit of an identity crisis, taking some applied courses, trying to accept a future in the "industry", which I don't enjoy half as much as algebra. Well, either that our pursue my ambitious program I just mentioned, and write a kick ass master's thesis

My other interests are... well, none, considering the amount of time spent on those relative to time spent doing (ahem, reading) math. Quite active in the world's largest student society though
