Re: the meaning?Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.

Re: the meaning?Math is a big pain in the butt. Just when you think you understand something, someone gives you a problem with only a slight difference to the ones you've been doing and your stumped again.

All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20090805 11:12:56
