If I Were A Math(s) Text…

A nerdy maths in-joke for y'all from one who had to suffer through many Springer texts…

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be J.-P. Serre's Linear Representations of Finite Groups.

My creator is a Professor at the College de France. He has previously published a number of books, including Groupes Algebriques et Corps de Classes, Corps Locaux, and Cours d'Arithmetique (A Course in Arithmetic, published by Springer-Verlag as Vol. 7 in the Graduate Texts in Mathematics).

Which Springer GTM would you be? The Springer GTM Test

(Thanks to John Wilkins for the link…).

Hiya Little Jimmy!
I took the test - W.B.R. Lickorish's An Introduction to Knot Theory. I like it. It's knot really a theory is it? (ach...)
I dig the guy's name though, but never eat the stuff. It's probably new form of poetry, with circular analogies. I seem to remember something like x = x^2 + c intriguing me in the 80s, but then again, i've always liked feedback.

Ah, Cambridge's Dr. Lickorish; you could have ended up as his "A Representation of Orientable Combinatorial 3-Manifolds", which sounds more like something Deleuze and Guattari would have written, but never mind. I always figured you were secretly quite the maths nerd…
