# Social Networks for Math Majors

Math or Mathematics is not as difficult as it is thought to be. *Mathematical Patterns,* Structures, Geometry and its use in everyday life make it beautiful. ‘Math majors’ term generally include Math students, Math professors and researchers or Mathematicians. Internet has always been a tonic for learners and whole internet is supposed to be a social network, in which one shares and others read, one asks & others answer. There are thousands of social networks (and growing) where you enjoy your days, share fun etc. However there are only a few social (mathematical) networks which are completely focused on math and related sciences. But these are brilliantly good enough to demonstrate the wisdom of mathematicians. I have tried to list my favorite social networking websites on mathematics. Please have a read and give feedback.

# Math.Stack Exchange

Mathematics Stack exchange is a website dedicated to all types of mathematical discussions. You can ask questions, give answers, comment on questions and vote for it. Registration is very easy and takes seconds. Depending on your work, you are given ‘reputations’. Depending upon some special works, you are also given some privileges.

This is a free, community driven Q&A for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields. It is a part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A websites, and it was created through the open democratic process defined at Stack Exchange Area 51.

# Reddit Math

This sub-reddit is probably one of the wisest part of reddit.com. Here you can ask questions, share links and discuss on math related topics.

This subreddit is for discussion on mathematical links and questions

# WordPress.COM

WordPressThis is really a question. Is WordPress.COM a social network? And that too for mathematicians? I think the answer is ‘yes’. WordPress.com support LaTeX formatting and has attracted many students and researchers to head to WordPress.com. Terence Tao‘s blog “What’s New“, Gower’s Blog, Gil Kalai‘s Blog “Combinatorics and More“, Q. Yuan’s Blog “Annoying Precision“, A. Matthew’s Blog “Climbing Mount Bourbaki“, Peter Cameron’s blog, Richard Wiseman’s blog and RJ Lipton’s blog “Gödel’s Lost Letter and P=NP” are chief attractions for math majors on WordPress.com. Visitors can read blog, post a comment, print and share the content and also can create their own blogs.

WordPress.com supports LaTeX , a typesetting system that’s really good at formatting mathematical formulas and equations

# StumbleUpon Mathematics

# StumbleUpon has always been an awesome way to browse web. When you stumble over sites, it feels like you are swimming all over the web. There is a topic on mathematics which led you to stumble only math related contents. Sometimes, it’s most useful for students than other and stumbler never feel boring as he/she can leave this site to proceed to another one.

# Math OverFlow.net

This works as same as math.stackexchange.com do but there is a difference between levels. On Math Overflow, you can ask and discuss only research level topics.

MathOverflow runs on Stack Exchange, the hosted service that provides the same software as the popular programming Q&A site Stack Overflow. The hosting cost is paid from the research funds of our generous benefactor, Ravi Vakil of Stanford University.

# MathBlogging.org

mathblogging.org is an excellent aggregator of Math Blogs, in which blogs are divided into several types depending on their content; like research, pure, applied, by date, by name etc. The people behind this project are Felix, Fred and Peter.

Mathblogging.org is designed as a convenient place to check on the mathematical blogosphere.

# ArXiv.Org

The **arXiv** is an archive for electronic preprints of scientific papers in the fields of mathematics, physics, astronomy, computer science, quantitative biology and statistics, which can be accessed via the world wide web. In many fields of mathematics and physics, almost all scientific papers are self-archived on the arXiv.

Thank you Ganesh! 🙂 I hope next year be better.

Hey Its really good job buddy you are giving the clear cut ideas on Social Network Analysis which has become the backbone of our society .

Its also giving the opportunity to create communities and through this people are increasing the memberlist of their community

…congrats!

`Thanks Buddy!`

Nice links, some of them are very useful! Social networks are indeed very useful tools to learn and discuss ideas 🙂

Nice post, thank you for sharing. You have really imparted useful knowledge on social networking.

Hi, I noticed you took a copy of my banner picture.

It would have been nice if you would asked me to use it.

Sorry, but I thought, you were aware of it. Should I remove this header image?

Update: I have removed the image.
