I think that classification of math into(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); subforumson this math forum is highly incomplete.

For instance, suppose that one wants to discuss number theory or discrete mathematics. Is this supposed to belong togeneral math? What if one wants to discuss subtleties of the last Fermat theorem or of Ramsey theory, does it really belong togeneral math?

Or computation theory, like P=NP conjecture, on which subforum should this be discussed?

Or discrete dynamical systems? Since they are discrete, thedifferential equationssubforum does not seem appropriate.

Or algebraic geometry, should it be considered a branch ofdifferential geometry?

It is also quite unnatural to havelogic and set theoryin the same subforum withprobability and statistics.

Am I the only one who thinks that math forum should be significantly reorganized?
