I would like to read some detailed disscussion on Uniform Norm Topology & m-topology. Can anyone suggest some standard texts/lecture notes? ("GILLMAN/JERISON: Rings of Continuous. Functions" was found to be a little bit compact for me.)Continue

There is a philosophical doctrine known as bialetheism, with, apparently, many adherents in Australia, who take the view that there can be true contradictions. I do not wish to defend this view, but nevertheless in the next 45 minutes I will be arguing, sincerely, that mathematics both does and does not need a philosophy. Of course, the apparent contradiction can in my case be resolved in a boringly conventional way: the statement "Mathematics needs philosophy" has…Continue

In the May 2011 issue of Scientific American mathematician John Baez co-authors "The Strangest Numbers in String Theory," an article about the octonions, an eight-dimensional number system that was discovered in the mid–19th century but that has been largely ignored until quite recently. As the name of the article implies, interest in the octonions has been rekindled…Continue
