A CGU Prof that for some reason unknown to us is teaching MultiVI? for the second half of Spring 2006. He denotes vectors by underlining the symbol rather than placing an arrow over it. While poking around on Google seems to indicate that this notation does actually exist elsewhere, it currently is serving mainly as a source of annoyance. ProfessorJacobsen uses arrows and so half of the frosh in MultiVI? are using one notation, half are using the other and trying to work together while using different notation can get to be a pain. |

(It's mostly used in disciplines where there are already seventy-hojillion marks above the symbol, and adding another line on the top would just be piling insult on injury.) |

A student in this graduate-level fluid mechanics class from a couple years back maintained that he sounds exactly like Hannibal Lecter: "Today... we're going to derive the Navier-Stokes equations ... and then I'm going to eat your liver." --RobinBaur (not that student, but was thinking it too...) |
