Thread: Math is a language, if I may, how do you math experts say, I love you, in math?

1. Math is a language, if I may, how do you math experts say, I love you, in math?

I have read nth times that math is a language.

Please forgive me, dear math experts here, but how do you say in math:

I love you?

2. Re: Math is a language, if I may, how do you math experts say, I love you, in math?

you don't

then again there are many things that mathematics can express precisely that aren't able to be expressed in the language of your choice.

That being said...

if you are able to go ahead and identify the various chemical reactions, modelling of the other persons mind in your own, and who knows what other various usages of physical laws and relationships that in totality constitute "love".

then math will be there for you to describe all these physical processes precisely. 3. Re: Math is a language, if I may, how do you math experts say, I love you, in math? Originally Posted by Mdejess I have read nth times that math is a language.

$x(t)=16 \sin^3(t)$

$y(t)=13 \cos (t)-5 \cos (2 t)-2 \cos (3 t)-\cos (4 t)$

$0\leq t \leq 2\pi$

somehow I knew to use red for romsek's set of equations ... 7. Re: Math is a language, if I may, how do you math experts say, I love you, in math?

I know this is an old thread, and that the question was asked tongue in cheek. BUT a serious answer is deserved.

There are a number of statements that "math is something else." I think these are all technically wrong. Math is math and not something else. Nevertheless some of the statements that "math is something else" are useful when interpreted as "math is like something else, at least in part."

"Math is a language" really means that "Mathematical notation is a symbolic language that greatly reduces ambiguity at the cost of confining itself to a very limited field of discourse." As such it is a true statement that renders ridiculous many questions.

experts, language, love, math
