Algebra (from Arabic "al-jabr", literally meaning "reunion of broken parts") is one of the broad parts of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and analysis. In its most general form, algebra is the study of mathematical symbols and the rules for manipulating these symbols; it is a unifying thread of almost all of mathematics. It includes everything from elementary equation solving to the study of abstractions such as groups, rings, and fields. The more basic parts of algebra are called elementary algebra; the more abstract parts are called abstract algebra or modern algebra. Elem ...more

“ The existence of God is a matter of feeling! It is not a formula of algebra that we sit down and prove! If we carefully observe the humans, animals, nature etc., then the existence of God can certainly be felt. Say, I mentioned in one of my Facebook posts that the 4 fingers of our hands are located side by side but one finger, that is, the thumb is much away from other fingers, structurally small and much different compared to other fingers. Now, it would be foolishness to say that the location ...more ”

[close] In the past year I have wanted to read more books on mathematics, mathematicians and the history of mathematics. After half a year, I realized that it is way better to discuss this books with other people. Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to start a book club. We can decide together for a book to read, give us a deadline (something from 1 to 3 months depending on the book) and share our thoughts, favorite quotes on that specific book. Because the books will be math related, talking about the mathematics inside is another must.
