To think that what appeals to our students now is algebra via pseudo-gossip-slumber-party-ridiculousness is just mind-boggling. This said, I have always despised that woman, and considered her a hack. But, with the above article I was able to find a link to a "theorem" she, along with two others, have proven. It "looks impressive", but I have zero idea what it means. Is it physics, or math? I see the word "measure" and "ergodic" used, but I find it hard to believe this is a paper on either measure or ergodic theory. Anyone understand it?
