Is it possible to get a $2400 grant for publication of my revolutionary math research book without me having a degree? If yes, where can I ask for the grant? Please give as many grantors as you know. Should I ask as an individual or as a nonprofit? (Yes, I have a 501(c)3 nonprofit registered in USA.)

Yes, but bear in mind they typically assume you know more if you have the degrees (a generally valid assumption.) But it also depends heavily on the topic of research. If you are trying to modify Topology instead of adding to it they are going to subject you to some strenuous questioning before you get any kind of funding.

I have no idea how to approach this from a nonprofit organization standpoint.

But this does not make my work worse than works by professors. It seems from your quote, that you suspect that I am trying to prove to be false known theorems. Certainly I don't do. I add to General Topology. However my work is so novel, that it may be reasonably classified as something different than General Topology. In short, it is to General Topology somehow like as complex number theory is to real number theory (however, unlike complex numbers consisting from two real numbers, my "funcoids" do not consist of several topological spaces (at least in an obvious way)). It is a new theory thus. May 20th, 2019, 07:39 AM #6 Math Team Joined: May 2013 From: The Astral plane Posts: 2,194 Thanks: 897 Math Focus: Wibbly wobbly timey-wimey stuff.

It is a new theory thus. I am passing no judgements. I am mererly trying to prepare you for what they would likely be thinking. Beyond some of the basics Topology is not a language I speak so I'll leave that to more knowledgable minds than mine to consider. -Dan  May 20th, 2019, 11:04 AM #7 Senior Member Joined: Oct 2016 From: Arizona Posts: 207 Thanks: 37 Math Focus: I'm still deciding, but my recent focus has been olympiad problems and math journal problems. I don't get this. Why don't you submit to math journals? This is what mathematicians do. They submit their research to journals. How do you know it is correct if you don't have a degree? What I mean is, even if you study on your own (which is what I do) you still need a group of mathematicians to verify your work. I'm kind of confused. What do you mean by research book?

What I mean is, even if you study on your own (which is what I do) you still need a group of mathematicians to verify your work. I'm kind of confused. What do you mean by research book? Two reasons: 1. I don't want to split my already prepared book into parts. It would only make it worse. 2. (My first article was published) and I already submitted my article to a few journals, but in some unknown reasons, I got a bunch of rejections. So I want to submit for scientific high quality publication in Scopus the entire book, not its parts. They have already reviewed my book and warrant publication if I pay$2400. In fact this is a paid journal to publish a VERY long article.

When unknown calculus lecturer Yitang Zhang sent in his proof of bounded primes, he became a household name overnight in the math community. One thing he did was write very very clearly and spell out every detail. He knew that as an unknown he wanted his argument to be unassailable. It's a heck of a great story. In the math world if you have a new idea, people will acknowledge you no matter who you are. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yitang_Zhang How Yitang “Tom” Zhang Proved a Theorem That Had Stumped Mathematicians for a Century Last edited by Maschke; May 20th, 2019 at 03:48 PM.
