well, actually, i just finished my first year on University, and suddenly interested to do some "formal" self study for the first time, as i have thought this before but never have the initiative to start :tongue:

i'm a math major, and still unclear of what kind of math i am. But, by reffering to this

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Areas_of_mathematics

i thought i like the "algebra" area. And I thought doing research on great mathematicians books would be better for me. Is it? Or maybe studying something like "magic square" would be better.

But, i made a decision on studying on mathematicans books.

And i would like to know, whose book should i study in Algebra areas. I dont know any famous mathematicians. Can Gauss would be a wise decision?? At first, i wanted to try Euclid, but he's more to geometry and topology thing right?

thanks

p/s, sorry if i have a bad english, hoho
