# Which field(s) of mathematics are you interested in?

EDIT 1: There really should be a +1 to the CO section. I just forgot to add it, when I first made the poll. Sorry!

EDIT 2: +1 to Topology as well. Please let me know if you guys have any more areas of mathematics that I’m missing!

1. “Arithmetic (AFM)”… I love it.

2. If you think about it, accountants are actually specialists in a very narrow field (pun intended) of abstract algebra.

… only in the applicable sense, though. =P

3. Which narrow field is that?

• The field of real numbers under the binary operators addition and multiplication. ;D

• are you sure they are so indifferent to the analytic structure of the reals? not to mention perhaps its order structure? lol

• An accountant’s definition of the reals:

Well ordering:
-If it’s negative, it doesn’t exist.
-All credits (with brackets) < debits, but sometimes not… the balance sheets are special cases…

Cauchy Sequences:
-Irrational and trancendental numbers? What are those?
-Fractions? Just round to the nearest cent!
-All sequences of monetary values by this logic converge to another monetary value, therefore, our accounting real space is complete

Functions on R:
-Alt 1:Yes, I know how to program in R… I just don't know what the programs do…
-Alt 2: Well, the function of the organization with respect to R is…
-Alt 3: Continuity? The only continuity we talk about here is the continuity of the firm! These figures aren't going to adjust themselves, you know…
-Alt 4: Topology? I hear it makes you think donuts are coffee cups…

• @the “accounting real space”: yeah, because that arithmetic is pretty much just a contraction of the integers lol (and the integers are a complete metric space)
