This is the best place to discuss advanced mathematics topics.

Perhaps a few threads from "This is Cool" should be moved here? Examples would be ben's "Lie groups, anyone?" and Zhylliolom's "ζ(2n)". Just a suggestion.

Good idea, I will move some. I can always move them back if it is not widely accepted.

what exactly qualifies as an advanced topic?

Good Q. How large is a slice of pi? How many angels can dance on a pin? And why would they?

I would say pretty much anything beyond high school level. I'd say that's just about after basic calculus. Essentially, things that may make no sense or be confusing to normal people should go here I guess.

We could make that a formal definition. Say we hire about 10 normal people and ask them to review every new thread. If they can't understand it, it stays. If they can, its moved to less prestigious forum. It should work but now we have to decide what qualifies as a normal person.

If you asked the floor yeah. Should he be the judge?

Hmm...I could've sworn there were more threads like this (old threads) in some of the forums. I'll take a look, and I'll bring back my results.

**Just a suggestion.......Why not have an Abel forum to disucuss the basics? Abel the great went very far, but then that was simply because his basics was very strong!**

**Thanks again ** That was just a suggestion...... Abel's forum can disucss the very basics, the axioms, the conjectures, etc. Like (just a thought again) we can discuss the mutilated chess board etc.
