David J. Introduction

I'm David John. Currently I'm majoring in mathematics and I am also doing a minor in East Asian Studies.

During the winter break I had an interesting intellectual experience. I was reading principle of mathematical analysis by Walter Rudin and I learned that the set of rational numbers is countable and the irrational numbers are uncountable. This is really fascinating because one would think that there would be an equal number of rational and irrational numbers but there isn't.
