What is mathematical research? And how is it done? Questions that have been on my mind for very long.
We know what researchers do:
- answering questions asked in the literature;
- discovering a new theorem;
- publishing an article in a journal ( i.e. Journal for Number Theory );
- writing a book;
- lecturing about their work and giving talks;
- being part of a research community.
Researchers are either employed by a university or by a corporation. University researchers have a commitment to teach and corporate researchers aren't free to chose their topics. Both are pressed to publish often in the best journals possible.
But -HOW- to they do it? What makes them successful in their field? Questions, I can't answer. Let's go and search for answers elsewhere. Starting with Manning, perhaps.
