Remind me to write a piece on group representation and description by relations

but as it turns out (I think it's a result by Arnol'd but don't quote me on that), if you know an implicit equation that generates the hypersurface, you can simply compute the R-codimension of the implicit equation!

the thing about the Milnor number is that, when you have a hypersurface with isolated singularities, it can be retracted into a bouquet (a wedge of k-spheres) around those singularities

the number of spheres is called the milnor number, and the canonical way to compute it is, well, compute the homology :⁾

i mean ig it makes sense when you consider (x,y²) is just the reflection map

Show thread

seems like every time you have something in the form (x,y²,something of order ≥ 2) the Tjurina number is 3, regardless

Show thread

lazy enough to open Singular, distrustful enough to check if I'm doing something wrong for getting the same answer all the time

Chapter 1: The extended \(\mathcal{R}\)-codimension of a function is called the Milnor number!

Chapter 8: Actually, the Milnor number is something different but it just so happens to match........

me: let's study the proof of the Darboux theorem

I don't always come here to post, but when I do I suddenly make a long thread filled to the brim with a lax style and lots of slang

the other day I was thinking about how much I always enjoyed puzzle games and I think that's kind of how I ended up in pure math tbh

this clicked after my advisor said in a meeting that the important part of a theorem is chasing after a proof, that you just add the hypotheses later

or \(Df_a\) if you like the uppercase D but like

they're sophomores give them a break

Me: there is no way students don't get confused with this shit

Students: [get confused with that shit and think Df is a function]

Me: figures

Show thread

Someone: writes \(Df(a)\) for the differential of \(f\) at \(a\)

Me: [loud moan]

@ZevenKorian Perhaps it has something to do with the rotational symmetry of Minkowski space?

I thought "well maybe it's because if you have a local isometry--" but the minkowski space is not isometric to the sphere?

Show thread

I just cheated and looked it up on wikipedia (don't do this at home kids!) and it seems like they coincide on the minkowski space, on S², on...

today in "i could study or I could check this stupid thing my advisors said"

one of my advisors called the Hamilton vector fields "Killing", but Killing vector fields are the solutions of the equation \(\mathcal{L}_\xi g=0\) (g is the metric tensor)

Truth is subjective.
The children think I've put a climbing frame in the garden.
From my perspective, I've increased the genus of my mowing surface.
