M208 GTB

Bookset 5 of M208 is about Group Theory again. The main topics are conjugacy, homomorphisms and group actions with counting. I started studying the material as I want to start working on the TMA if at all possible this week. I did make time for reading about some other, although closely related, topics though: matrix groups. There are some beautiful maps $f: \mathbb{C} \rightarrow GL_2(\mathbb{R})$ mapping complex numbers to equivalent real matrices. - I am close to getting the click / cognition about the essence of Lie Groups. More about that another time.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
