Mathematicians: variables are named using Latin, Greek, Fraktur, Hebrew and Linear B letters in bold, italic, script, sans-serif and serif forms.

Also mathematicians: I need some brackets. Guess I'll use good ol' parentheses again! 😎


@christianp The apparent diversity in letter styles still has its root in the same problem: "I need a letter. Guess I'll use good ol' 'K' again!"

@jsiehler yeah, I suppose I should have talked about other annotations like dots, accents and sub/superscripts. I wonder if anyone draws stuff on top of their brackets, like with the integral symbol: ∮, ⨎, ∱
