Q: Should we blacklist or delete the "research" tag?

Matt F.Should we blacklist or delete the research tag? This site is about mathematical research, so I don't see how the "research" tag is helpful, any more than a "mathematics" tag would be helpful. Of the 23 questions with the tag, 7 have been closed, and all 23 have other tags. Alternatively, someo...

Q: Names of convex geometry journals

Jessie CopherWhat are the names of the research journals that focus on convex geometry? I know of "Advances in Geometry" and "Discrete & Computational Geometry" but no others. Context of question: I am a graduate student who recently submitted a paper to a geometry research journal. They did not accept my...

Q: $\log(x)$ or $\ln(x)$ to denote the natural logarithm in research papers?

KlangenSince the natural logarithm, i.e. with base $e$, is very commonly used in research papers and that both $\ln(x)$ and $\log(x)$ are used to denote it, it is natural* to ask which of these notations to use when preparing a paper. The fact that both are used in literature concerning the same topics ...

Q: How to find research topics in Linear Algebra in Graph Theory

user101506Note: My first question in this site. MSE users asked me to post this question here for better response I am a Masters student in Pure Mathematics. I need to do a Masters thesis in "Linear Algebra in Graph Theory" where I will have to publish some original work in our Departmental Journal mean...

Q: What’s the etiquette on using diagrams that need color to be understood?

GMBI’m working on a paper that makes heavy use of colorful diagrams to supplement the text. For most of these it would probably not be possible to create grayscale versions that convey the same information as effectively. I’m a bit worried about this because (1) I imagine that some people like to pr...

Q: Which affiliation to use when publishing, when invited professor at second university

Evgeny KuznetsovI am a PhD student at one university and an invited professor at a second, i.e. I do not have a permanent position in the second one. Now I need to indicate an affiliation in a journal paper but I do not know whether to indicate or not to indicate a university where I am an invited professor. ...

Q: Currently active Research Areas in Topological Groups

Sumit MittalI have done my Master's degree in mathematics and currently I am doing Ph.D. in mathematics in India. I have completed my course work and my supervisor works in Topological Groups. He suggests me some books for reading like Topological Groups and Related Structures by A. V. Arkhangelʹski...

Q: How practical is it to change research areas within math after a PhD?

JoeThe title says most of it really. How constrained are you in an academic career based on the topic of your PhD thesis? Is it plausible for someome to be researching in an area of math vastly different from their thesis topic later in an academic career, or does it largely determine the scope of r...

Q: How to approach a respected researcher?

Jake B.I'm developing a theory that (I think) is pretty good and something new. I'm thinking of contacting a respected researcher (one of the best in the field), mainly because I'm not 100% that this has not been already done (perhaps under another context) or perhaps the theory even isn't new, but equi...

Q: Research semester in math

Amir SagivAdmittedly, this is a soft question. My own experience in mathematical research has been of long periods of research, mostly characterized in long "blocks" and sporadic breakthrough. How does this image fit with research semesters, in which many researchers (veterans, early careers, postdocs a...

Q: Research trends on mean curvature flow

BehroozIt's been a few months since I've been curious about mean curvature flow and now I'm reading Robert Haslhofer's lecture notes. I like the subject and would like to do research on it, but I know neither where to start nor current research trends. Can anyone explain the main threads of research in...

Q: Rate of convergence for difference between conditional and marginal probability

stats134711Suppose $X\sim \text{Bin}(2n,p)$ and $X_1,X_2\sim\text{Bin}(n,p)$ are independent, with $X_1+X_2=X$. I'm interested in the rate of convergence for the absolute difference $$ \left\vert P(X>c|X_1\leq a,X_2\leq a)-P(X>c)\right\vert $$ where $a$ and $c$ are constants in a neighborhood of $np$ and $2...

Q: Is the exact solution of the wave equation for the scattering of waves by a disk/cylinder an open problem?

electroscienceThe solution exact solution of the Helmholtz equation for the scattering of waves by a sphere is relatively straightforward and has been known since the time of Lord Rayleigh. The exact solution of the wave equation for scattering of waves by a sphere is much trickier and has been dealt with in ...

Q: When writing a research paper, what is the acceptable format for acknowledging my advisor?

defarmI am writing a paper for an independent study course I am enrolled in. I have contributed all of the work to the project. My supervisor has been a guiding force during this research, suggesting things here and there. These suggestions haven't changed the fundamental focus of the project. When di...

Q: When is a paper finished?

Douglas SirkHow much truth is there to Chomsky's remark that "mathematicians stop working when things get too difficult"? https://youtu.be/atupfHizJxM?t=453 Is this true in your own work? How do you know you are finished with a given line of inquiry (at least for the time being) and it's time to publish t...

Q: Survey article model theory research

user144513I've taken a graduate course in model theory and I like it so much that I can imagine doing research in this area. Are there survey articles or review papers on the current research topics in model theory? Where can I find them? Also, I wish there is literature about the common proof techniques ...

Q: Is the field of q-series 'dead'?

TyrellI had a discussion with my advisor about what am I interested as my future research direction and I said it is special functions and q-series. He laughed and said that the topic is essentially dead and the people who study it are dinosaurs. I'm really confused by this statement and don't know wha...

Q: The work of mathematicians outside their professional environment

user142929As it is reasonable to think the work of mathematicians will be developed/made in their offices of universities (or in eventual seminars or conferences), here are the colleagues, books and journals, connection to databases and blackboards. My belief is that a great part of mathematicians conti...

Q: On math looking obvious in retrospect

kawaAdmittedly, a soft-question. I, being a very young researcher (PhD student) have personally faced the following situation many times: You delve into a problem desperately. No progress for a very long while. All of a sudden, you get the light, and boom: the result is proven. Looking in retrospect...

Q: References for literature from mathematicians who provided critics and proposals concerning ethical aspects of mathematics research

user142929I would like to know sources, articles, books or other, that provide information on ethical aspects in the research of mathematics, I wondered what is the literature that this community knows about ethical issues and proposals that were proposed in the context of mathematical research. Ques...

Q: How often do you put your research into trash?

kawaA soft question. I am a PhD student, at early stages of my academic career; and have personally experienced the following many times. Sometimes you come up with a result, that you are not quite happy with (for whatever reason, maybe you think is not novel, or is simple, or has no applications, ...

Q: Evaluation of the quality of research articles submitted in mathematical journals: how do they do that?

user142929I would like to know as curiosity how the editorial board or editors* of a mathematical journal evaluate the quality, let's say in colloquial words the importance, of papers or articles. Question. I would like to know how is evaluate the quality of an article submitted in a journal. Are there...

Q: Is there a precise relationship between the goals of moduli theory and the minimal model program?

LukeI want to get into some of the big classification problems in algebraic geometry, but have a very broad question. Ultimately we would like to classify all varieties over some field up to isomorphism, and this is done via moduli theory. I am studying the moduli of elliptic curves at the moment. Fr...

Q: What problem in pure mathematics required solution techniques from the widest range of math sub-disciplines?

David G. Stork(This is a restatement of a question asked on the Mathematics.SE, where the solutions were a bit disappointing. I'm hoping that professional mathematicians here might have a better solution.) What are some problems in pure mathematics that require(d) solution techniques from the broadest and ...

As mentioned in the post, 7 of those questions are closed.
That is 58.93% of questions in this tag was deleted, here are stats for all tags: data.stackexchange.com/mathoverflow/query/1162648/…
With 30.43% closed, it is among the tags with high percentage of closed questions: data.stackexchange.com/mathoverflow/query/1162425/…
 
1:30 PM
I see that the above query with percentage of deleted questions has several tags which were removed (and thus have 100% of questions deleted) in the first places. If we're not interested in those: data.stackexchange.com/mathoverflow/query/1251170/…
 
2:10 PM
Of course, if we look only at tags with many questions, then there aren't so many deleted tags among them: data.stackexchange.com/mathoverflow/query/1162648/… data.stackexchange.com/mathoverflow/query/1251170/…
However, since I wanted to include , I had to use a lower threshold.

I'd support deleting it, it has no coherent or useful use I can think of. It's small enough to be done manually, btw (unfortunately moderators mostly ignore now requests about tags). — YCor 2 hours ago
