this is a test

$\int_{M} d \omega = \int_{\partial M} \omega$

  1. Just thought you might like to know (since I get notified of stuff in Google Reader) that it doesn't render it but instead just shows the original code.

  2. Thanks for this, but are you sure? I do see the actual formula on my computer. I currently use Firefox on Windows (which I don't like). My usual Linux machine is out of order for a while, at least until I move to Sweden...

    What browser/operating system are you viewing this page from?

  3. I just tried it from Explorer and it works. Hm... I'll have to look into that. It would be a pity if I couldn't manage to do it.

    All I did was to copy and paste a little script (and the write LaTeX) which I found in
    http://mathcache.appspot.com/static/docs.html
    through

  4. Right. I just tested it at the local public library. Windows machine. Explorer. It works. I'll keep checking.

  5. It might just be that my computer's stuffed, my user/internet settings are completely screwed. I can check next week from work and send a screenshot, that might be a better test.

What measure theory is about

It's about counting, but when things get too large.
Put otherwise, it's about addition of positive numbers, but when these numbers are far too many.

The principle of dynamic programming

max_{x,y} [f(x) + g(x,y)] = max_x [f(x) + max_y g(x,y)]

The bottom line
