I understand where you are coming from, but I feel this is a bit of gatekeeping. Sometimes even with the cleanest code, comments are immensely useful. Obviously you should be striving to come up with the most self-descriptive variable names, but still.ppauper is a mathematician and a REAL*4 programmer.. could be worse ... GOTO

o Real Programmers aren't afraid to use GOTO's.

o Real Programmers can write five-page-long DO loops without

getting confused.

o Real Programmers like Arithmetic IF statements -- they make the

code more Interesting.

o Real Prograwmers write self-modifying code, especially if they can

save 20 nanoseconds in the middle of a tight loop.

oReal Programmers don't need comments -- the code is obvious.

o Since FORTRAN doesn't have a structured IF, REPEAT ... UNTIL, or

CASE statement, Real Programners don't have to worry about not using

them. Besides, they can be simulated when necessary usingassigned

GOTO's.

Karen Uhlenbeck, Uniter of Geometry and Analysis, Wins Abel Prize

for mathematics which shapes the philosophy of science

Very well deserved, as best as I can tell. Although I'm way out of my league here...

Impressive stuff (for all I know).Karen Uhlenbeck, Uniter of Geometry and Analysis, Wins Abel Prize

for mathematics which shapes the philosophy of science

The Uhlenbeck of O-U fame was her father in law by the look of it.

Able prize: " "to give the mathematicians their own equivalent of a Nobel Prize.""

Able prize NOK 6 mill,

Nobel prize SEK 9 mill.

NOK/SEK 1.08

"equivalent" ?? so yes must be for theoretical math only, not applied!

The spell checker got you (I hope). Although it should have been consistent and insisted on Noble, too.

some pay attention to grammar others to numbers, four types of brains! left, right, up and down brains!

what was his 1823 method about "In 1823 Abel wrote a paper titled "a general representation of the possibility to integrate all differential formulas". "He applied for funds at the university to publish it. However the work was lost, while being reviewed, never to be found thereafter"

You mean Deutsch? It is also said that the kings of Norway also inherited the title of duke of Schleswig (in the 14th century).

sorry I meant Duchy (the devil is in the details)

Physicists and mathematicians

The former tend to have their heroes, mathematicians not. Why?

Are there no more (cult) heroes and even if there were, would mathematicians even care?

I think I know how mathematicians tick, but it would be cool to know what rocks the boat for physicists?

Genuinely interested.
