A Wealth of Complexities


Comments


Back in a day, when I was a high school student in now vanished Soviet Union, our math teacher was referring to elimination of extra variables in systems of equations or inequalities as "destruction" (??????????? in Russian). I doubt though she read that obscure medieval text for very few people back then could speak any English let alone olden one.

Despite of the usage of such unusual for math term, she was a very good teacher.
