As an undergraduate student in mathematics keen on pursuing further research in the subject, I have evolved in my understnading of various areas of mathematics. Here, I detail how I have evolved in each of the areas, referring to the timelines, courses, books and people who helped me along the way.
Since I still have a lot to learn, the contents of each of the files should (in principle) get updated regularly. I also plan to put up files describing my evolution in more areas of mathematics.
Please send any suggestions/comments/praise/criticism to me by email at vipul at cmi dot ac dot in. I will try to make necessary inclusions and corrections based on suggestions that I receive.
