How about deletion?

Well, I did some reformatting. Let me know what you think. AиDя01DTALKEMAIL 21:51, Jun 3, 2005 (UTC)

3D Geometry[edit]

I would change/add the 3D geometry entries for X, Y, and Z to not specify particular axes in 3D-space. There are a lot of different coordinate systems, and not all of them use Z to represent vertical, etc. For example, the "standard" one I use at work has X as north-south, Y as up-down, and Z as east-west.

Survived Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Roman letters used in mathematics


I had no idea this subject would be so popular. Nor did I think the other topic I made would be that popular as well. Thanks to all who contributed to both of them. --Admiral Roo 17:17, August 5, 2005 (UTC)

Include science and engineering uses[edit]

Just like proposed and agreed (but not yet extensively done) for the Greek letters, I started adding uses in science and enginieering.−Woodstone 20:41, August 5, 2005 (UTC)

Shouldn't the title be updated? aCute 03:50, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

s represents: the distance traveled in mechanics equations[edit]

How is this justified?

Not that this question was aimed at me but ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:58, 5 December 2009 (UTC)


Some of the fields have got quite random, might it be worth seperating into say Constants Variables Units and operators?

Just an idea, im coming at this more from the physics angle (as you can probably guess due to the number of physics variables that have sprang up in the past few days) im not sure how to seamlessly work in variables from computer science, maths and engineering any ideas? 06:03, 5 December 2009 (UTC) (talk)
