My favourite is Stephanie Flanders' square root recovery. When I was a kid I would have loved to have square roots in my alphabet soup (that's the kind of child I was, I'm afraid)
thanks - good link...in all kindness, you are a square root alphabet soup type...
It gets worse. I remember when mathematicians ran out of Roman and Greek letters for their variables, and had to start on the Hebrew Aleph sign for their uncountable infinities.I used to think that was as exotic as it would get, but Gillian Tett now thinks the recovery will be in the shape of the shorthand sign for 'bank'.
