LaTex in the morning!

Thanks to Alex for drawing my attention to an online LaTex compiler. What would I do during sleepless nights without LaTex? Sounds perverse for someone who thinks of something else than nerdiness 🙂

I remember my first lectures in fluid mechanics, some 7 years ago in Germany, when the Professor wrote the full Navier-Stokes equations for an incompressible flow (not fluid as in some books stated) on the black board without looking in his notes. To impress us even more he wrote out the Einstein notation for i and j from one to three and we could not close our mouth, due to our believe that he must have been to smart for this world. Now, but also few weeks after our admiring, we were as well able to write down the same equations and we felt like wizards. Today the Navier-Stokes equations or any set of equations derived from the Navier-Stokes equations can easily be misused to impress people outside our “fluid world”, e.g. at parties :). I guess it is the most know and least understood equation.

PS: Or is that the case for E=mc^2?
