Lame joke responsehello!
is there a complete list of mathematical notations?
thanks!
This looks to me like a compete list of responses to questions asking for complete lists of mathematical notation.:tongue:Lame joke response
- No, by a diagonal argument no list of notations can be complete.
- Yes, but only if the list is inconsistent.
Straightforward response
Wiki's got a decent list.

You can google "math LaTeX" to get many lists of math symbols, like this one:

Snarky response
Why, is your Google broken?
Philosophical response
No list of mathematical notations can ever be complete as long as math continues to be active research subject. Mathematicians are always inventing new notations to express new ideas or new viewpoints on old ideas. As one striking example, the idea of expressing mathematics using two-dimensional arrow diagrams, aka Category theory, came into existence in the 1940s. You don't see it much as an undergrad, but in higher math it's everywhere. And in just the past twenty years it's started showing up in Computer Science and physics.
