Math Circles

We would like to introduce several Math Circles that your fellow Brilliant members are eager to participate in.

For an Apprentice or Journeyman who want to explore the beauty of math, #CosinesGroup will be your guide in the mathematical landscape tour. You will visit areas like the Golden Ratio and the Bridges of Konigsburg, while immersing in intriguing concepts like Combinatorics and Trigonometry.

For an Adept who want to improve their skills and test their mettle, the #TorqueGroup will push you into the depths of proofs and introducing exciting techniques like invariance principle, roots of unity and functional equations.

For a Magus who seek to go beyond, the #Goldbach’sConjurersGroup will propel you to wrestle with Mathematics and rigor, while engaging in a myriad of topics ranging from complex networks to numerical methods of integration and even a stab at Goldbach’s Conjecture itself! Arm yourself well to conquer these beasts.

We also have #PeruMOTraining led by Jorge Tipe, in which you will be exposed to the weekly sessions conducted by Peru.

We would encourage everyone to participate in the numerous posts that will be created. Read through the material that was posted, solve the problems, and comment on the discussions. If you like the posts from a particular person, you can follow them and their posts will automatically be added to your newsfeed.

If you are interested in forming a group of adventurers to guide your fellow Brilliant members in their various quests, feel free to send me an email. I would especially like to get Physics, Computer Science, Chemistry, etc groups off the ground. Go forth and conquer!

@Priyanka Banerjee Give your fellow members time to explore Brilliant, and then make their posts. They have a lot of exciting ideas to share with you, and are eager to do so.

One way of following the Math Circles is to view the tags. For example, there has been a post made in #CosinesGroup about irrational numbers. More posts will appear over the next few hours.

I'd love to get a Chemistry group going too. If there is sufficient interest, we will start one. Calvin Lin Staff · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Calvin Lin How do I join these groups ? Abhijeeth Babu · 3 years, 1 month ago

Log in to reply

@Abhijeeth Babu You can participate by using the tags to read their posts, comment on the notes and solve the problems. These groups arose after a recent survey which showed that many of our members wanted access to a math community, but lacked the resources.

If you wish to be proactive and contribute posts on a weekly basis, please send me an email. Calvin Lin Staff · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Abhijeeth Babu Members are typically active contributors to just 1 group, mainly due to time commitments. (Of course, if anyone wants to actively contribute to all groups, I would welcome that too!)

@Josh Joyner The groups have evolved from 2 years ago, and they are now posting into wikis.

You can read their contributions, and also help out with adding examples to wikis. Calvin Lin Staff · 10 months, 1 week ago

@Calvin Lin Hi Calvin, why can't we follow these groups? Its quite boring to search the tags everytime. If we could follow these tags, everything will be in our feeds. Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 10 months ago
