Hi MIF;

Thanks for providing that.


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.

Poor people. They had to know Latin and Greek and math.
