I retired in 2006 and bought Mathematica and a stack of math books with the goal to teach myself to become a world-class mathematician. I am on pace to achieve that goal sometime shortly after the next Ice Age.
I consider myself a Mathematical Mutt (no papers) who occasionally ventures off the back porch to play in the yard with the big dogs.
I donate regularly to the The OEIS Foundation.
When I look at the patterns, I can hear the wheels turning. When I look at the math, I find out the hamsters have died.
