Functor Network is a blog platform for mathematicians. The term “mathematician” here is used in a broad sense, encompassing people studying math at any level, as well as professionals in related fields.

You can find our homepage at https://functor.network.

What is Functor Network born for?

Writing mathematical content online often leads to frustration. Mathematicians frequently encounter issues such as poor support for mathematical typesetting or technical difficulties in setting up a blog site. Functor Network is a blog platform specifically tailored for mathematicians. We offer features such as math typesetting, support for LaTeX packages, automatic numbering and referencing, and bibliography support, among others. All you need to do is focus on your content and leave everything else to us.
