I am not a professional academic; I am an amateur mathematician.
I have developed an entirely new mathematical theory.
I have written a book about my theory and put it online at my web site.
I am considering whether to put it at an online Git hosting (such as GitHub.com) under a copyleft license instead of publishing in an official academic way. What could be the consequences of me violating the normal academic way?
I doubt whether professional mathematicians will refer to my work that is not published officially.
Since two objects cannot occupy the same place, I prevent others from publishing their own research duplicating my content.
This could have both negative and positive consequences:
The negative is that I may stall research in an entire part of mathematics, so that nobody could publish their own research on this topic.
The positive is that my little nail would be a nail in the coffin of continuing the existing way of disseminating scientific knowledge, as nobody would be able to step over my sharp nail. As an unbreakable obstacle on the way to do scientific research in the old way in an entire field of mathematics, this could crash the entire existing system (which is probably good).
My question: Please help me predict the implications of me disseminating my research in this rude way instead of publishing articles in math journals as most mathematicians do. Who would win in this struggle to integrate my research into the academic system: I or the rest of the world?
I want also to note that publishing with Git will greatly help in hunting possible errors in my book. It will also much ease publishing new revisions of the book.
