Where are you in the world of the mathematics?

With my colleague Jeannie Moberly, our paper on "Harmonic Perspective" was accepted for this year's Bridges conference at Towson University near Baltimore. Working on preparing a presentation for that event. I participated in a discussion on Morris Kline's great book "Mathematics: The Loss of Certainty" at the Ben Franklin Thinking Society. Would love to go through that book again. Currently re-learning multivariable calculus with on-line resources so that I can understand more advanced science and engineering on-line courses. Trying to get my head around multilinear algebra (aka exterior calculus, geometric algebra, Clifford algebra, Grassmannian algebra, etc), but not having much luck so far. Long-time student of Buckminster Fuller's "Synergetics". I am executive director of the Synergetics Collaborative, a 501(c)(3) educational and scientific non-profit building on his magnum opus. My "library" is filled with geometry (Jeannie has built more than I by now).

Introduction

BA in mathematical sciences from Binghamton University, 1989. I'm working my way back through college math and probing new areas too. Interests: philosophy of math, Bucky Fuller's Synergetics, Geometry, Projective geometry, exploring new frontiers.

What CJ F. is saying about this Meetup Group

The group has nice small meetings with people interested in mathematics. It is participant driven. If you have a math related event, "suggest" a new meetup and see if people signup. Feel free to experiment (so far it seems that book discussions about the history of mathematics garner good turnouts: what else do you want to do?). Since the group is still small, be persistent as the timing might just happen to be unfortunate.
