Integral t-squared dt
from 1 to the cube root of 3
times the cosine
of three pi over 9
equals log of the cube root of 'e'.

Ah. I wasn't sure what the "hoc" referred to until I got to see your equation. No "nimium" for me - rather a Swedish "lagom" (just right).

What exactly are "t" and "d" supposed to mean?

I always suspected I wasn't clever enough to be a real fan of Stephen Fry - you people scare me!

Well, it's more for math nerds than Fry fans, really... math not really being Fry's milieu.

No idea. Just random derivative of a variable.

Oh. My. God.

Excuse me while I go scratch the math class off my fall semester course list. I'm not ready for the torture just yet.

Way back in the olden days, when I was an obnoxious little fourth former at Heckmondwike Grammar School, studying languages, my brother was a sixth former, studying science. He told me a really funny limerick, but all I can remember is the last line:

' But what he thought was H2O was H2SO4'

Does anyone know the rest of it???
