Should this be corrected - since it is a typo? Or left as it is - since it is a quote? "This discussion is about distingishing fae jewlry from real. Since the endoscope also has medical uses, one could imagine an even more vulgar usage." (I wasn't able to find the quoted text somewhere.) What are some examples of colorful language in serious mathematics papers?

A: What are some examples of colorful language in serious mathematics papers?

Sean RostamiTwo from Casselman's "A companion to Macdonald's book on p-adic spherical functions": The word ‘´epingler’ means ‘to pin’, and the image that comes to mind most appropriately is that of a mounted butterfly specimen. [Kottwitz:1984] uses ‘splitting’ for what most call ‘´epinglage’, b...

"The critical paper that they refer to starts with a speldid colorful language:" Is "speldid" supposed to be "splendid"?

A: What are some examples of colorful language in serious mathematics papers?

Gil KalaiDiaconis and Efron wrote a paper "Testing for Independence in a Two-Way Table: New Interpretations of the Chi-Square Statistic" that was followed by 10 papers discussing their suggestion. The following is from Diaconis and Efron's rejoiner: The critical paper that they refer to starts with a s...

Using [this](link) is certainly not optimal for future visitors. Is there a categorical treatment of dynamical systems?

Q: Is there a categorical treatment of dynamical systems?

Vidit NandaLet $X$ be a set and $(T,\cdot)$ an abelian group. Is there a category of $T$-dynamical systems on $X$ which yields useful information about $X$ and $T$? More precisely, is there a category whose objects are dynamical systems, i.e., $\phi:X \times T \to X$ such that $\phi(x,t + s) = \phi(\phi(x,...

I will just mention that the link given in this part no longer works: "I promise I've done (some) homework by looking at this." (Of course, the same is true about many other links to springerlink.com.) Perhaps this isn't really that important to the question - but since the question was bumped anyway, this might be a reasonable time to correct the link. — Martin Sleziak 2 mins ago
Perhaps I should explicitly mention that the above post was bumped by a new answer (now deleted) in December: mathoverflow.net/questions/103837/… data.stackexchange.com/mathoverflow/query/1479912/…
I have now made some minor edits (including adding a Wayback Machine link for one of the dead links) in some of the answers: data.stackexchange.com/mathoverflow/query/1379118/…

Q: Is it time to replace links to the UCDavis arXiv frontend?

Peter LeFanu LumsdaineThis question from March 2020 points out that many questions/answers link to papers at the http://front.math.ucdavis.edu/ frontend instead of at the arXiv itself, but that the frontend had been down a few weeks. There are c.600 affected questions and it looks like a large proportion of the links...

A: Is it time to replace links to the UCDavis arXiv frontend?

Martin SleziakAt this moment, it is unclear whether a project like this should be done. (After all, until we heard from people running the arXiv frontend, we still should count as a possibility that it will be running again at some point.) Still, it might be useful to analyze a bit what would the scope of the ...

There are also 3 such comments.
@IanAgol K. and G. Kuperberg gave real-analytic counter-examples to the Seifert conjecture: front.math.ucdavis.edu/math/9802040, so that gives examples. — Benoît Kloeckner Jan 12 '17 at 21:04
There's a bunch of great stuff related to Andre's comment in this short paper of Greg's. — Noah Snyder Jul 16 '14 at 20:42
Your self-promotion needs no excuse. As long we've started that, I used Archimedes' theorem and other moment maps in a paper on numerical quadrature. front.math.ucdavis.edu/math/0405366Greg Kuperberg Jul 24 '10 at 19:07
