Lie algebras and Lie groups
I am a senior in the Bachelor's program at the University of New Mexico, majoring in Mathematics (Pure) and minoring in Computer Science. A former fine artist and freelance graphic/web designer, my path to mathematics has not been continuous (nor, it follows, smooth). I have to work extra hard to keep up with many of my more 'traditional' peers (I'm a 38-year-old father of two teenage boys). It is my passion for the subject that keeps me determined to succeed in this discipline.
