It's 2010. The real challenge to anyone cobbling an equation is to accompany the seemingly impenetrable with the same in graphic form. If done properly, the impenetrability lifts, the simplicity and beauty resonate.

I think to simply be able to manipulate symbols is not what mathematics is. Rather, it is being able to convey what is in the mind's eye, and now we certainly have the technological tools to do this.

    R, your observation is profound on several levels to include education, R&D, and invention.

    During 9 years of developing the Theory of Quantitative Relativity, my use of Tradestation with its Easy Language to explore, comprehend, and construct equations for visual analysis and distinguishing appears unparalleled (at least to me) for correlating the mathematics of markets with the resonance of indicator and function modeling.

    As by doing so with Relativity Theory, visualizing math allows us to perceive beyond (or behind) the numbers and into the psychology of market systematics. Thus, when so doing, we may come to understand time and space correlations that have yet to be realized or understood.
