Affinité (mathématiques) / Affinität (Mathematik)[edit]


In French Wikipédia, there is Affinité (mathématiques) ; in German Wikipédia, there is Affinität (Mathematik). There is no item in American/british Wikipédia : perhaps should you create the item ?

most-perfect magic square from
the Parshvanath Jain temple in Khajuraho

Hi! Some years ago (in 2008) I received a picture about a most-perfect magic square from the Parshvanath Jain temple in Khajuraho named Chautisa Yantra. According to magic square#India Magic Squares and Cubes By William Symes Andrews, 1908, Open court publish company the square is more then thousand years old / from the 10th-century. There is an additional text above the square. I hope to receive a translation and/or additional details about this text from contributors on languages from India.
BTW: Sriramachakra (found today) is another of the 384 mutually indistinguishable most-perfect magic squares.
https://test.wikipedia.org/wiki/Most-perfect_magic_square provides transliterations for a dozen of ISO 15924 scripts as Latn including Roman numerals and binary, Deva, Arab, Armn, Beng, Grek, Gujr, Hans · Hant · Jpan, Hebr, Knda, Kore, Mlym, Taml, Telu, Tibt and maybe some more. The wiki source code can be used for articles / stubs in languages using these scripts. Fonts are not optimized and all comments are welcome at the test subdomain page [1]. Thanks for all your efforts in advance! lɛʁi ʁɑjnhɑʁt (Leri Reinhart)

the best place to ask for translations is the reference desk, Wikipedia:Reference desk/Language. It looks clear enough that anyone who can read that script can hopefully make sense of it. Apart from that I would confine discussion to the English version of the article, as it’s the most likely place that people working on other language versions of the topic will look. You do not need to do multiple translations yourself, that is best done by native speakers of the other languages who will also be aware of any formatting or other conventions that apply to their particular wikipedias.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 16:50, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Should we deselect some articles?[edit]

I would have discussed this at Portal talk:Mathematics/Selected article archive or Portal talk:Mathematics/Selected picture, but I'd have to post here to point people to the discussion, anyway, so I'm just discussing it here... At Portal talk:Mathematics/Selected picture I have created a table with all of the "articles of the week" (a.k.a., "featured articles"), "selected articles", "pictures of the month" and "selected pictures" ever used on the Mathematics portal. (Note that we currently use the "selected article" and "selected picture" components; the others are now deprecated.) Scanning the table, one can see that both Selected article 7 and Selected picture 10 link to the Trigonometric function article and use the image Circle-trig6.svg; and both Selected article 34 and Selected picture 17 link to Knot theory but they use different images. Should we merge the text of one of each pair of these components into the other and remove the redundant component? (If so, I vote for keeping the selected pics and removing the selected articles — but I'm biased, since I've put a lot of work into the selected pics component). Opinions? - dcljr (talk) 21:32, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
