## Undersea Math

November 16, 2010 by blogginblueeyes

The only math class I am taking this semester is Real Analysis which is a rigorous explanation for Calculus. I adore and thoroughly enjoy Calc but Real Analysis … not so much . Therefore, yesterday during class I had a goal. Because, you see, Real Analysis very rarely uses numbers. Instead, there is a jumble of epsilons, upside down capital A’s (the “for all” symbol), a backwards E (there exists), and the list goes on. Because of these symbols, my goal was created – to draw a picture using as many mathematical symbols as possible. And so, it was done.

I think I did a pretty good job; it has delta (the seahorse), epsilon (the leftmost plant), alpha (the fish), gamma (the octopus thing), Xo (the right plant), there exists symbol (on the crab), arrows (the crab), and phi (for the last time, the crab). Overall, a pretty comprehensive picture.

As an added bonus, I also completely understood what we did in that class. It was all about proving the limits of a function by using delta/epsilon proofs and incorporating the idea of a neighborhood. Maybe the drawing helped =]
