The Map of Mathematics

In the Map of Mathematics, you can see the state of mathematics as it currently exists, as mathematicians perform it.

The map begins with three simple beginning points: numbers, shapes, and change. From there, it expands out into intertwined tendrils of thinking. Continue reading it, and you will learn about the relationship between prime numbers and geometry and how symmetries help us deal with infinity problems.

In addition, although the map is imperfect — mathematics is too vast to be included within a single map — it will still provide you with a sense of the fundamental themes and disputes that fuel the field, in addition to the conceptual tools necessary to get started.

There is no right or wrong method to go about your exploration. You can either move in a straight path from topic to topic or jump around, looking for something that catches your attention on the way.
