What is Functor Network

Functor Network is a blog platform for mathematicians. The term mathematician here is in a broad sense, including people studying math at any level as well as professionals in related fields. While we offer special support for mathematicians, anyone can register a blog site on our platform and express themselves on a variety of topics, whether they're related to math or not.
