In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

OMG! It’s been such a while since I posted the problem that I’ve forgotten the solution myself!

Yes, one is quite wrong, or maybe both!

One is so clever
One is straight out of the book
