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).
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.
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.
