Recent Wiki Readings

Sunday was consumed by research on spectral sequences, category theory, homological algebra, sheaf theory, topos theory, chain complexes, homotopy theory, cohomology, and functors (tor, ext, hom). These are all concepts of advanced algebra, graduate and doctoral level math in my opinion. I didn’t understand everything, but I’m thirsting for more knowledge on these concepts. When I’m at the library on Wednesday, I’ll pop by to get a few books on these subjects. Maybe I’ll just get and introduction to homological algebra.

I’ve already sent an email to the Analysis III professor asking for class notes so that I can read them and practice for the next semester.

The American Revolution was also on my mind. Since I was watching the John Adams mini-series on HBO, I was curious about certain facts. The Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the Join or Die articles were read.

I’m a bit annoyed at the mini-series. Why?

Well none of the great historical battles or events are portrayed in this series, at least until now. The characters witness them, but the viewers don’t see them. It’s annoying. I find that it cuts the narrative.
