Learning Chinese

I think to learn Chinese (or any language in general), it is important to learn outside the textbook also. During the academic time, it is often the case (at least for me) that there is not enough time to look at something else apart from what is already there in the textbook. This is a break time, so I think it is a golden opportunity to do this. I read Prof. Tao’s blog (in which I plan to read everything), and someone translated the page into Chinese. So, I will put it here and learn all the vocabulary in there!

An Exciting Moment

I am so exited to start writing this blog. I see a lot of opportunities to improve my writing, my thoughts, and in the end I can share this to anyone I would like to. I get inspired after reading a blog written by Terence Tao. I think at this point it is very interesting to keep updating what is going on in my unofficial research and so people can join me if they are interested. I hope to write many posts during my Winter break. I am still deciding the scope of this blog, whether it be just about mathematics-related topics or about my life in general. I have yet to think about this, but I can foresee that it is going to be fun!!!

PS. Testing the LaTeX code: x^4 + 4 = (x^2+2)^2 - 4x^2 = (x^2 + 2x + 2)(x^2 - 2x + 2).
