Welcome to MathematicalArticles!
The idea for this group arose from my frustrations at dA's limited keyword search facilities while trying to locate mathematical articles to help expand my horizons.
I found a number of interesting articles, but in the process it became obvious that the keyword search is finicky, to say the least; and searching for mathematical articles on fractals seemed especially to be an either 0 or 1000 hits affair... often with little wheat and much chaff!
Initially, I will try to grow this group from the position of a benevolent curator; but if and when the membership roster grows to a point of sustainability, I am hoping to try to devolve both membership and submission acceptance voting responsibilities down to contributors and members.
As articulated in the About section, the aim of the group will be to be a sort of aggregator/promoter of interesting mathematical content on dA.
This criteria is best matched by:
- longer mathematically instructive journal entries or tutorial style infographics covering topics of utility or interest,
- but also includes mathematically generated visual images (i.e.: deviations) that include meaningful explanatory information in the description
- and potentially even description-light submissions where the images are mathematically meaningful or instructive in and of themselves (e.g.: a plotting of Gaussian primes on a complex plane).
What it most emphatically does not
- arbitrary images produced via fractal zooms into common equations
- or even unique fractal imagery devoid of any commentary providing mathematical insight.
(An uncommon equation conveyed in semi-proper mathematical form paired with an example image is probably approaching or, at best, straddling acceptability for this group; whereas an arbitrary fractal zoom with nothing but some or another program's parameter file attached falls unambiguously short of our submission criteria.)
Feel free to contact me with any comments or questions, but I do ask for patience with any potential technical glitches and hiccups the group may experience early on.
Thank you for your patronage in advance!
