Auxiliary notes

When you see the words “Presentation of a group” and “Representation of a Group”, what would any sane person think? That they are similar things, right? WRONG, they are totally different things. This part of mathematics needs a renaming really badly.
Group presentation
Group representation


Mathematical Blogging

First, I’m going to try out the latex include feature in wordpress. Then, I’ll get to what I think would be a great idea for folks like me

i\hbar\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\left|\Psi(t)\right>=H\left|\Psi(t)\right>

Seems pretty legit, right!! People interested should checkout this link. You know what, the HTML like code in wordpress also gives a pretty legit feel. To learn more, check this out.

So, here goes the ‘great’ idea I was talking about earlier. I want to use the blog as a way to keep a ‘Research Journal’. Basically, one in which I keep writing about what I learn everyday. So, you could ask me why I should choose a blog to do this when I could have chosen an offline journal as well( Interestingly, I also bought an awesome app called Day One which is precisely for that purpose). The reason is that when I choose to write on my blog, I feel a little bit of extra motivation to actually write it down when compared to my offline journal due to the “Number of views” and other statistics showed by wordpress. It really feels like a game, you know. You get a feeling of satisfaction and fulfilment when you see the number of views rise in your wordpress statistics. It gives you a nice kind of high. So, yeah I’ll try to be more consistent from now on, especially now that I’ve seen the full power of the \LaTeX and HTML capabilities of wordpress.
