Good evening, I really want to study mathematics, to learn to do (at least some level) of mathematic research. I am at a point in my life where I will not be able to pursue these studies in a university because of my commitment to the court calendar. I could devote 4-5 hours a day to study, but not during the time when classes are in session. I have passed several actuary exams and have a proficiency in undergraduate level math. To become a mathematician, to eventually make some contribution to the field (even many years from now) is a dream of mine. Is there a non-traditional way to pursue a path to being a mathematician? What would you recommend as a good course of study for the next year? Thank you for your advice and input.
