"what it is" I do here

So I'm working on a Master's in Mathematics. I've taken some graduate level math courses, and have settled into the final stage, writing a thesis. I plan to be finished all the work by April.

People often ask me what I am working on. And their eyes usually glaze over about halfway through "differential equations", even if I think they'll know what that means and I tack on "specifically, Sturm-Liouville problems".

I would like to try to change that a little by trying to explain the basics in a series of posts to this log.

This particular post is just a warning. Actual mathematical content will follow in future posts.

i hated sturm-liouville problems so much, that i failed 316 out of pure, simple spite.

i'm not what the message i was trying to convey was... maybe,

"sturm-liouville, you suck so much that even though i could become proficient at solving you (an admittedly bald-faced lie), i won't."
