Talk:Mathematicial notation

I copied this from the AoPS Formulary, and it needs to be converted to Wiki format. Please help! Also, credit for writing this GREAT article goes to ZetaX. --Sean 23:56, 26 June 2006 (EDT)

I take issue with the notation $\mathbb{Z}_n$ for integers modulo n. When n is prime, this notation is used for the p-adic integers, which do not really have any other notation (well perhaps ${\widehat{\mathbb{Z}}}_p$, but that's not much different). --ComplexZeta 01:22, 27 June 2006 (EDT)

I also don't like the notation $\mathbb{Z}_n$, but that is what most people use on ML/AoPS.

Okay, but that ought to change. That notation is losing popularity in mathematics in general. --ComplexZeta 11:08, 27 June 2006 (EDT)

OK, Please talk to ZetaX about that. I'm not sure that he's seen this article on AoPS Wiki yet, even though I told him about it. --Sean 11:15, 27 June 2006 (EDT)
