Hi, I am Marvin Ray Burns, fundraising for my fall 2022 tuition at IUPUI. I will be taking Real Analysis and Complex Analysis.
With an impressive record, I am working toward my BS in mathematics for the sake of new and interesting mathematical discoveries. Not only do I have a 3.86 GPA and over 60 credits, but I have also already made a real contribution to mathematics: the MRB constant, named after me by mathematicians.
I found and began improving my talent in 1994, when I put down my remote control and picked up a pencil, and began refreshing my algebra skills. In 1999 I first published my discovery, and today it is a well-accepted mathematical constant.
Its Wikipedia article
has reached over 1,300,000 views, and on the Wolfram Community Math Discussion board, my discourse
on it has been read by over 619,636 people. So my math pursuit is producing great results!
Would you be kind enough to contribute any amount to help this pursuit get even better?
I am proudly a housekeeper at my local VA, and have paid for, and won scholarships for all of my education so far. This time, I am reaching out to you, to see if you would like to have a part in this successful venture, as I earn just barely enough to be disqualified for need-based scholarships.
Even a small contribution would mean a lot, and add assurance that I am not alone in desiring to be of consequence.
