I am a second year mathematics major at the University of Chicago. My mathematical interests lie primarily in Commutative Algebra and Dynamical Systems (specifically polygonal billiards). I've recently finished a paper on billiards in isosceles triangles which I hope to publish soon.

comment Does memorizing a proof help to provide the intuition behind it?
I would say it's very helpful to get to the point where you can reproduce the proof.

comment How to solve for $f(2)$ given $3f(x)+f(2-x) = 2x^2$?
What do you get when you plug in $x=0$ and $x=2$?
