Sounds great. I'm happy I found a way to strike a positive chord with you. I'll be sure not to forget how while I'm away.Originally posted by marcus
this post communicates a real person to me and if you start QFT threads as you say you might do later then I would (judging by this post alone) be enthusiastic about reading and maybe putting some questions in to the mix in a non-critical way. this is a remarkably nice open-sounding post.
P.S. It's true that I avoid introducing mathematical notation in my posts. I actually regard papers overflowing with mathematical formalism accompanied by little exposition with suspiscion that the author's are hiding either the fact that their result is trivial or that their understanding of the material is spotty.
In any case, there's in general little need for alot of symbology here. But if at any time for any reason you'd like to see a more mathematical treatment of a question, just let me know. In fact, you remember those unicode symbols I found. I made macros for all of them and am looking for a good excuse to use them. Unfortunately their use is rarely justified here and I don't think having that kind of fun at the expense of someone else's understanding makes sense (though I'm not sure about that).
