Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"metamathematics" would be "mathematics about mathematics." For example Studying about originations like Where did 0 number orignate from Where did \[\sqrt{}\] come from ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, thats philosophy of mathematics thats not meta math n m positive bout that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh thank you :) but studying origin and development is philosophy of mathematics its not meta maths and meta maths if development of algorithm i guess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sure i'll message you mam.Meta maths is not a computer language though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol its not a computer language its a language used to write mathematical algorithm like i guess you've heard of MATLAB

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the admins tried the idea that users could create their own groups. Users abused the priviledge and the admins took that functionality away. They eventually went thru and deleted most of the user defined groups; but kept a few that had not been problematic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1mate math is one of the subgroups in mathematics as a result of there being nowhere else to put it, and not wanting to get rid of it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what i got to know from wikipedia is as follows m not talking about this group here: Metamath is a language for developing strictly formalized mathematical definitions and proofs[1] accompanied by a proof checker for this language and a growing[2] database of thousands of proved theorems covering conventional results in logic, set theory, number theory, group theory, algebra, analysis, and topology, as well as topics in Hilbert spaces and quantum logic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I have the honor of having named the group, so it means what I wanted it to mean ;) meta=above math=math it's basically for irregular advanced problems that would liley get lost in time if they were in a section as large as the general math group

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2by posting questions that require days to solve in a smaller group they are more likely to get regular attention from some of our better users. I didn't look up the meaning on Wikipedia when I made the name, I just wanted to describe that the group was outside of any particular branch of mathematics.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@TuringTest then if i have question that deals with the definition of some mathematical term can i put it there for debate?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I guess, but I don't think it's the best place for it, as the group is much more slowpaced. You should probably just post that in regular math imo.
