User talk:JBL

Todo: Prism, Cylinder, Pyramid, Cone

Is this how you use user talk?

Yeah.. I didn't see that the article's sequence was defined starting with $F_1$ -Mountain.dew 11:03, 9 December 2007 (EST)

Re: Naming

I viewed the thread, and it seems that theorems would be capitalized, which is explicitly what that page says. It was extremely vague otherwise.

Also, should we move this discussion to AoPSWiki:Discussion since it now has three participants...? Temperalxy 17:04, 17 December 2007 (EST)

Large equations

I normally use \begin{align*} (or eqnarray etc), but I breakup large equations because apparently the math wraps around if its too long. At least on my browser, the following equation appears on two lines (and justified weirdly) rather than one:

$[AEDF] = [AE'F] + [AED] + [AE'D] = 100 + 50\sqrt{3} + 500\sqrt{2} - 350\sqrt{3} + 300\sqrt{6} - 600 = 500\sqrt{2} - 350\sqrt{3} + 300\sqrt{6} - 600$

I probably should format everything/center, but 2007 AIME I Problems/Problem 12 has no nice solution besides a ton of algebra so I'm not very inclined to do that ;) . Azjps (talk) 16:58, 17 January 2008 (EST)

Oh, that's just because I was too lazy (at that time) to fix the entire article, as centering one line involving more trivial calculations would sort of stick out. I'll format everything now. Azjps (talk) 21:19, 17 January 2008 (EST)

Re: Capitalization

Thanks for the help. I forgot to do the search there.

I'm still confused about capitalization. Where do we use title case (Intermediate Mean Value Theorem) and sentence case(Cartesian product)?

Revert of my addition at Cauchy Schwarz Inequality

Is this untrue? I thought it was true... Temperalxy 16:31, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Ah, sorry, didn't see the other section. My bad. Temperalxy 16:31, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

LaTeX: Math page

I assume you just used "replace all" or something to remove all the "\displaymath"s. Now we have this though (and I know nothing about LaTeX): "Notice that the summation symbol looks much nicer now - adding theat the beginning of your math (inside the $...$) will often make complicated math render more nicely." Heh, I seriously spent about 2-3 minutes trying to figure out what "theat" was. Mathnerdmo 17:19, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Just a note, the wiki parser automatically deletes any \ displaystyle s on articles (as a result of a latex upgrade on the wiki sometime back), so the deletion was unintentional. Azjps (talk) 20:49, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
