We need a topology subforum!

    Whenever there is something topology-related I want to post, I never know which forum to post it in! And I'm not alone; topology-related posts are scatered throughout the math section.

    So I suggest we either make a topology/algebraic topology subforum in the math section or add "topology" to the "tensor analysis & differential geometry" or "Calculus and analysis".

    You get a topology section when I get my aero section! :devil:

    Any reason why nothing has been done yet? Really, a simple renaming of the "Tensor Analysis & Differential Geometry" to "Topology & Geometry" should be more than enough.

    Hurkyl had this opinion, last time round:

    I think a rename is best, because there really isn't that much posts made about topology.

    The idea I favor the most so far is morphism's renaming of "Tensor Analysis & Differential Geometry" to "Topology & Geometry", then mention tensor analysis in the description of the forum.

    Thanks Greg!

    If there aren't that many posts about topology, then why do we need to rename a forum to include it in the title? Such posts, if few in number, could simply be put in general maths. This is really a matter for the maths mentors to decide, though.

    I know I'm late, but I am also happy with this.
