In Mathematics, a set of symbols is frequently used in mathematical expressions. As mathematicians are familiar with these symbols, they are not explained each time they are used. So, for mathematical novices, the following table lists many common symbols together with their name, pronunciation and related field of Mathematics. Additionally, the third column contains an informal...

THX 1138 -
After watching the new DVD release of George Lucas's THX 1138, I cannot get the themes out of my mind.
