Symbols for physics, geometry, calculus ext

    Basically the symbols like force f and d/dt (mv) for these subjects.
    Physics
    Geometry
    Calculus
    Astronomy
    Cosmology
    Biology
    Algebra
    Trigonometry
    Chemistry
    Could you try to get as many symbols in or like a website. It is really hard to find a good list of symbols.

    I don't understand the question...
    also the symbols are a matter of notation and thus author.

    at the beggining of every book, there is a list of notations used by the author.
    In general there is no reason to have fixed notations, since anyone can introduce symbols for his own.
    [itex]R[/itex] can stand for radius as well as ricci curvature as well as resistance in a circuit as an R-parity eigenvalue as blah blah.... you have to follow the author and the context of his book.
