I would say that he is a classic example of Dunning & Kruger except
for one thing: He is totally UNWILLING to learn. Being ignorant of
mathematics is OK. Trying to do mathematics even though ignorant is
OK. What is not OK is a stubborn repeated refusal to accept what
experts are telling him and to learn from his mistakes. He refuses to
actually study this subject. Nor does he even make a feeble attempt
to answer his own questions.
