This is my first post here. I think that my question is a little-bit strange but sorry for that. I need to ask someone about this.
So I'am a programmer for ten years now. Not a big time..
I consider myself as a "jack-of-all-trades" programmer. My main area is Java enterprise development bit i know C,C++,a little-bit ASM and so on
Next to this i love math and i love to solve problems :)
I like optimization, algorithm.. i think that every programmer love these things (or should be)
My question is:
Could you please suggest me some areas of mathematics that is the closest for a programmer?
So.. there are mathematics topics like algebra, number theory, lineal algebra, discrete math., and so on.
Which pass for these:
- There are many-many problems to solve
- Need to write algorithm
- Maybe need to optimize
Okay i know that near every math things fit for these things.. But which area is closest for a programmer?
I would like to do this in my free time, for a hobby-like.. and for learn new things.
I think that maybe AI is the best for this. It has Genetic Algorithm, many-many problems to solve, and so on.
Forgot one more thing.
Maybe i can join some math-science based research tasks at my work.
So you can suggest me math areas that pass for math research things.
Sorry if i'am not too correct or precise. Maybe neither i don't know what i want :)
