This page provides a list of all articles available at PlanetMath in the following topic:

00-XX General.

This list will be periodically updated. Each entry in the list has three fields:

  1. PM : The first field is the link to the PlanetMath article, along with the article's object ID.
  2. WP : The second field is either a "guessed" link to a correspondingly named Wikipedia article, produced by the script which generated the list, or one or more manually entered links to the corresponding Wikipedia articles on the subject.
  3. Status : The third field is the status field, which explains the current status of the entry. The recommended status entries are:
Status means PM article
N not needed
A adequately covered
C copied
M merged
NC needs copying
NM needs merging
  • Please update the WP and Status fields as appropriate.
  • if the WP field is correct please remove the qualifier "guess".
  • If the corresponding Wikipedia article exists, but the link to it is wrong, please fix the link.
  • If you copy or merge an article from PlanetMath, please update the WP and Status fields for that entry.
  • If you have any comments, for example, thoughts on how the PlanetMath article compares to the corresponding Wikipedia article(s), please place such comments on a new indented line following the entry. Comments of this kind are very valuable.

Don't forget to include the relevant template if you copy over text or feel like an external link is warranted

  • {{planetmath|id=|title=}} for copied over text
  • {{planetmath reference|id=|title=}} for an external link

See the main page for examples and usage criteria.

One can use the web-based program Pmform to convert PlanetMath articles to the Wikipedia format. As a side benefit, this tool will place the PlanetMath template for you.

Not really a math article. Paul August 02:57, Feb 1, 2005 (UTC)
Although our article doesn't go as in depth, the many subarticles linked to from dimension do cover things appropriately. Also some of the PM article is general musing. CryptoDerk 06:59, Feb 2, 2005 (UTC)

-- The PM article has different examples, but not necessarily better ones. Actually I think our article should have more basic/simpler examples. Paul August 04:19, Feb 2, 2005 (UTC)

I decided to just copy the article over, as it is easier to understand what that thing in a simple example than to go through the whole theory of polynomials. Oleg Alexandrov | talk 00:46, 3 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Elements of this are in exponentiation and empty product. I placed an external link to this PM article in those two WP articles. CryptoDerk 00:19, Feb 2, 2005 (UTC)
WP article covers inverse numbers as well as other inverses. CryptoDerk 03:08, Feb 2, 2005 (UTC)

The PM article states the sum of the first n odd numbers is n2. We don't really need this on WP. The closest related article is arithmetic progression. CryptoDerk 22:47, Feb 1, 2005 (UTC)
PM's article covers many things, all of which are covered here in addition, arithmetic progression, and geometric progression. CryptoDerk 05:17, Feb 2, 2005 (UTC)

Actually there is a problem in that WP and PM give different algorithms under this name. This should be sorted out AdamSmithee 08:06, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

  • PM: obvious, id=6357 -- WP: none -- Status: N
This article is more of an essay. Paul August 06:08, Feb 2, 2005 (UTC)
PM's article is a highly specific example related to statistics. They link to WP in the first line to provide a definition. I've placed a link to the PM example in our article. CryptoDerk 05:55, Feb 2, 2005 (UTC)

Merged in info about complex numbers. CryptoDerk 19:05, Feb 1, 2005 (UTC)
Some special cases added inspired by the PM article. CryptoDerk 18:39, Feb 1, 2005 (UTC)
  • PM: QED, id=2945 -- WP: Q.E.D. -- Status: A
CryptoDerk 05:34, Feb 1, 2005 (UTC)
This might be a joke. Even if it's not, it's not worthy of inclusion. CryptoDerk 04:33, Feb 2, 2005 (UTC)
  • PM: TFAE, id=3048 -- WP: none -- Status: N
Just an abbreviation for "the following are equivalent" which means exactly what it says. The PM article doesn't go into any real depth other than to expand the acronym. CryptoDerk 04:27, Feb 2, 2005 (UTC)

homogeneous equation is a redirect to homogeneous dab page, I think homogeneous polynomial, should define "homogeneous equation" and homogeneous equation should redirect to homogeneous polynomial. Paul August 19:27, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
