The Unapologetic Mathematician

Mathematics for the interested outsider

Bad Language

I know I’ve been really lazy about my blogroll, and I should get around to that sometime. But there’s a new one I have to point out right away: The Language of Bad Physics (as noted in the comments, now on WordPress at this address). Like Frank Costanza on Festivus, she’s got a lot of problems with you people (physics writers) and how mathematical terms get mangled and confounded in the physics literature. It’s one big Airing of Grievances, and you’d do well to listen up.

My only complaint is that it’s one of those horrid, ugly Blogspot pages and not a nice \LaTeX-enabled WordPress page. But maybe it’s early enough to get her to switch 😀

  1. Thanks for the recommendation. And don’t worry, I am actually planning to change formats fairly soon, because I too am fairly appalled by the type-setting of Blogspot.

  2. In fact, the WordPress site is now up (although old posts haven’t been reformatted yet) – This will be the current home of The Language of Bad Physics now.
