Anyone interested in learning mathematics in a group online?

What I'm looking for:
I am seeking a small amount of people who are interested in learning mathematics outside of a school setting. I propose that we set up a local community where we can go through texts together (read them independently and than discuss them at regular intervals), this of course will be done online via a forum and/or chat room.

How we could go about it:
First of course we'll need to set up the said comunity, the details of how we should go about it should be discussed in depth by those who are interested.

I'm thinking of first beginning with set theory and logic and from there progressing onwards at a steady rate up the mathematical hierarchy. It will be necessary to go over what may seem to be trivial (this is to insure we actually know what we know - hope that makes sense), we will do this at a rapid rate, only stopping if we find something interesting.

Qualities you should have if your interested:
1) People who are deeply interested in mathematics.
2) People with spare time (time to spend going through a text on your own and having time to discuss what you learn).
3) Be willing to be part of a group (that is sharing the knowledge you have and asking meaningful questions to stimulate the group or to attempt to fill in your lack of knowledge).
4) Intelligent people: People who can think for themselves, have the ability to work out problems out, etc.


If anyone interested message me here or through a personal message. Also anyone who has some ideas that could help such a 'group' out or criticism to the idea please don't hesitate to post a response.

I've found it much more difficult, and much less enjoyable to rigorously discuss math online. I would suggest trying to organize something like this in a physical setting... Were I near you (in physical distance... not topologically), I would gladly join in.

Anyway, I don't have the time to spend, and my free time will mostly be spent on various mathematical tasks that are of immediate and specific interest to myself. Specifically abstract algebra and combinatorics topics.

I agree that it would be to much to discuss literally everything rigorously online, but at this time it'll be at the most basic level I believe we will be able to work it out. The start will be a going through a text on set theory.

We can have a real discussion at set intervals (asking questions when they arise in between them).

I have established a temporary forum and will set up a chat room soon, all the questions in between can be asked there and a discussion (if time people are on works out) we can use the chat room.

Its to bad you have no time, by the way good luck with your tasks at hand (:

If anyone else has a comment or question please ask!

I'm very much interested. I've actually been thinking about starting something like this up myself.

Has anyone else shown any interest?

?

Is it an online group?
if yes then I am interested in knowing what math are you trying to discuss?

You do realize this thread is over 9 years old? I would imagine all the interested parties have moved on ...

It's a long time ago isn't it. Makes one wonder..
