A new section?It seems that there are several of us here who would like, from to time, to discuss stuff which is outside the range of interests of those who come looking for elementary help in math. Any chance of a new section with a sufficiently enticing title (and a reassuring subtitle.... to the effect that it ain't as scarey as it sounds)? #2 20060725 07:40:28
Re: A new section?Masters of Math? The Tower of Reason? Eulers World? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20060725 23:22:38
Re: A new section?Haha, Euler's World is a cute name. Anything Euler (Euler's Lair? Euler's Dungeon? Those are pretty scary) would be great, but that's coming from his biggest fan... #4 20060726 00:25:32#5 20060726 01:35:23
Re: A new section?Euler's Attic! First it is alliterative (as long as you pronounce "Euler" correctly). Second it conveys a sense of something higher. Lastly, it suggests it contains stuff that Euler used, or may have used, at some time. #6 20060726 07:37:26

Re: A new section?I have put a lot of thought into this, and have an interesting solution: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #12 20060731 08:08:14
Re: A new section?I think the Pirates would win unless the Philosophers could somehow convince them that they don't exist. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #13 20060731 09:04:51

Re: A new section?
As far as I've heard, there is a creature living on this island that every maths interrested person should be afraid of. I'm ofcourse talking about the pi eater! #15 20060801 02:51:30
Re: A new section?They are usually fat and slow from their diet, Patrick, so there isn't much to worry about. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #16 20060808 23:05:26
Re: A new section?So we all have our own ideas, but no consensus. So keep suggesting ... "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #17 20060809 02:56:57
Re: A new section?
Brilliant! Although it has connotations of exclusivity, the banner could say someting like "....always welcomes new members". #18 20060809 08:01:29
Re: A new section?or would look pretty intimidating and exotic, provided you could get "א" to show in the forum directory. Otherwise something like "The Imaginary Complex" or "The Abelian Group". #19 20060810 09:43:55
Re: A new section?So that is 2 votes for Abelian Group and half a vote for Aleph One ... ? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #20 20060810 10:05:43
Re: A new section?"The Transcendentals"? "The 3Sphere"? We need to get more people to come voice their opinion on this thread, we aren't really getting anywhere. #21 20060810 10:41:33
Re: A new section?
If this is the theme, then my vote would be for, "Without loss of generality." "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #22 20060813 16:45:50
Re: A new section?Good ones! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #23 20060819 08:55:16
Re: A new section?OK, "Euler Avenue", but I can change it. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
