TopNewest@brian charlesworth Congratulations for this streak! I always found your Geometry questions super awesome! "A tight fit" was the first Level 5 problem I solved! It was always a superb experience to solve your questions. – Pranjal Jain · 1 year, 9 months ago

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoy solving my geometry questions. As I recall, "A tight fit" was the first of my many "fitting circles in between random curves" problems. They're a bit weird, I suppose, but they each pose a slightly different challenge.Log in to reply

– Krishna Sharma · 1 year, 9 months ago

Congratulations :D on killing problems all the year :D, You should try fitting ellipse between the curves :D. this might be my last day on this site cauz I will be busy in JEE prep.Log in to reply

– Brian Charlesworth · 1 year, 9 months ago

Thanks! I'll try your suggestion of fitting an ellipse, (or two), but the calculations may get messy. Good luck with your JEE prep. :)Log in to reply

It wasn't really a goal, but as the streak got longer I didn't want to break it, so I always made sure I'd answer a question, even a simple one, before going to bed. I can't keep it up forever, but I am glad that I made it to a full year. :)Log in to reply

Congratulations Brian Sir, as evident from your streak of 1 year it will just be a matter of time before you become the one with the highest points on Brilliant .

Wow! So many points in one month. At this rate you'll pass Jon by the end of 2015. :)Log in to reply

P.S. Looking up to you, now even I want to create and maintain atleast a 1 year streak . – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 1 year, 9 months ago

Thanks, Azhaghu. I hadn't looked at the points chart for a long time. Jon Haussmann is uncatchable, but my hope is to some day post a question that not even he can answer. :)Log in to reply

Congratulations! Wonderful achievement! I look up to you and aspire to reach your level of expertise. Congrats again! – Pratik Shastri · 1 year, 9 months ago

Thanks, Pratik. Judging from all your excellent posted problems I suspect that you've already surpassed my 'level of expertise'. Keep up the good work. :)Log in to reply

Thanks, Megh!! I really appreciate this, fireworks and all. This is a great community to be part of, and every day I learn something new, such as the fact that \(365\) is such a beautiful number. :) – Brian Charlesworth · 1 year, 9 months ago

Which concept in math or physics is most beautiful according to you(please say except geometry)Log in to reply

– Brian Charlesworth · 1 year, 9 months ago

Well, Euler's formula \(e^{ix} = \cos(x) + i*\sin(x)\) is probably the most beautiful (and important) in mathematics, and in physics the honor might go to Einstein's field equations. Gödel's Completeness/Incompleteness Theorems are mind-blowing in their significance as well. If you have the time, I would recommend "Gödel, Escher, Bach" by Douglas Hofstadter as an excellent overview.Log in to reply

Congrats Brian ^_^ You are the most addicted person to Brilliant.org. And you got a new nick name 'The King Math'

– Brian Charlesworth · 1 year, 9 months ago

Thanks again. I may be addicted, but Marios Patsios has a 488-day streak going, so I'm not the most addicted. :) As for "The King Math", I would bestow that honor to Jon Haussmann, aka The Annihilator, or to Michael Mendrin, aka Mr. Mathopedia, or even to any number of the amazing members who participate on this site.Log in to reply

Yes! I am a moderator. But we don't have this much access. We just edit questions for LaTeX and other problems, make problems popular, and report wrong answers. But according to my experience, Jon Haussman must be the highest. 300,000+ club includesLog in to reply

@brian charlesworth Can you share a note on a topic which you founded most interesting? – Megh Choksi · 1 year, 9 months ago

Hey! Just curious.. Is that tag #\(\color{red}{brain}\)charlesworth intentional?Log in to reply

– Megh Choksi · 1 year, 9 months ago

Let it be there , first I made a mistake in writing name , but this suits the manLog in to reply

– Brian Charlesworth · 1 year, 9 months ago

Haha. Normally when my name is misspelled there is a "y" in place of the "i", but the (unintentional) "brain" misspelling is quite common too. :) There are so many brainy people on Brilliant: I feel quite humbled by all the talent on here. You're all well ahead of where I was at your age, (and probably ahead of me now, for that matter). Keep it up and do good things with your talent. :)Log in to reply

@brian charlesworth I have a couple of problems and solutions about which I'd like your opinion. Could you please write to me, if you would, with a handshake email at: ajitathle@gmail.com or at : 1topquark@gmail.com Thanks – One Top · 1 year, 8 months ago
