Re: Bus stop

Very good! I wish him good luck.


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.

Re: Bus stop

Hi anna_gg;

Your welcome. Just do not let him turn into one of those math types that start every proof with the words, "let g be a group" or "let G be a metric." 441 pages later they finish off with "which is what we set out to prove!"

Hi anna_gg;

I was just being cynical or ugly or cynically ugly. I suppose that even those people have a place in the world.
