The time is nigh for /sci/ to write a collaborative textbook in the same vein as /lit/'s critically acclaimed masterpieces legacy of totalitarianism in a tundra and hypersphere. Post your topical suggestions ITT.

>Why pop science is shit, by /sci/.
The book will practically write itself. In fact you could probably write a bot that just scans the archives and dumps them into a text file. Then all you need to do is send it off to an editor and bada-bing bada-boom we're authors.

I have been tempted to try to write a book on GR that could be read by a high school student with no math experience higher than precalc. Start with the fundamentals of calc and try to develop everything from a highly geometric perspective that will make GR feel natural.

Unfortunately I am both busy and lazy.

Don't forget triple integral, algebraic topology and HoTT.

Textbooks are best written by people who have done original research and published papers.

Not implying anything.

Thanks for letting us know family.

holy fuck

a meme and two research subjects?

>>7765854
Come on now, calling HoTT a meme...

Anonymous never forgets.

>>7765250
We could write an abstract algebra book for beginners.

Someone should train a neural network using data from /sci/ and then use that to generate the textbook
>>
>>7765921
Sounds good. Or maybe logic, one of these simpler areas. You can also make up tons of meme references there.

As long as we do it Bourbaki style.

invent our own notation and conventions in hope it takes off, because we clearly are the central elite on the subject?

Let's make Mochizukis work rigorous and use it to prove Wildberger right

This would actually work.
Pop-sci examples, and explain why they are wrong.

For example, faster than light threads.

Then we can make that the /sci/ sticky (like /fit/)
>>
>>7766676
I can't imagine a more /sci/ way of doing things. Let's not act like some of those guys wouldn't fit in here (minus the actual talent for mathematics).

Some Australian on /pol/ made a shitpost generator.
