  • Feb 19 2013: Even though I'm not comfortable putting myself in that 'gifted' category (man do I sound like a douche already), Here is my 'challenge'.Simply put; not carrying enough to put my stuff out there. I do what I do because I'm passionate about it and nothing else. One would think you'd be relentlessly calling math professors all over the country If you think you have solved some age old math question. Not this guy. And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one out there.

    [ p.s. so after three years of sleeping on few functions, I have finally made a resolution to get my act together and find the energy to reach out to few professors and learn how to go about properly publishing Math journals.]
