Welcome to ProofWiki! Since you're new, you may want to check out the general help page. It's the best first stop to see how things are done (next to reading proofs, of course!). Please feel free to contribute to whichever area of mathematics interests you, either by adding new proofs, or fixing up existing ones. If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of the administrators, or post your question on the questions page.

Here are some useful pages to help get you started:

  • Community Portal - To see what needs to be done, and keep up to date with the community.
  • Recent Changes - To keep up with what's new, and what's being added.
  • Check out our house style if you are keen on contributing.
  • Main Page talk - This is where most of the main discussions regarding the direction of the site take place. If you have any ideas, please share them!

"Sources" section

Please, if you think the source links are going to be compromised by refactoring you have done, please do *not* just delete the links. Please add an invocation of {{SourceReview}} at the top of the Sources section so that anyone who has a copy of that work can go through and fix the links.

Many thanks. --prime mover (talk) 11:35, 1 July 2019 (EDT):

I’ll be sure to do this in the future. Although, in this case, the links I removed were links that I inadvertently introduced through a copy/paste operation. So, I thought I was correcting a mistake. The original flow through the source is undisturbed. Of course that doesn’t negate the the need for the {{SourceReview}}. —Leigh.Samphier (talk) 17:28, 1 July 2019 (EDT)
Without actually checking (I have the book somewhere, not immediately sure where), the actual situation is probably that a subset of the definitions given are in S&S and the statement of their equivalence is mentioned, but not proved. So a true reflection of the contents of the book will be fiddly to establish, and will be a job for a long weekend (of which I do not have many for a while). --prime mover (talk) 17:39, 1 July 2019 (EDT)
