Guide to posting special characters

Inserting mathematical symbols vectors and variables
♦ Vectors are denoted by variables in bold: to make text bold, type
<B>This text will be bold</B> when typing a comment or post.
All other variables are denoted by italics: <i>Text will be italic</i>
♦ Powers are bracketed by <sup></sup> and subscripts by <sup></sup>.
♦ Mathematical symbols, Greek letters etc. are inserted by typing the HTML code or name for them. Here is an exhaustive list of maths symbols, Greek letters etc. and their codes.
E.g. if I wanted to type part of the Kerr black hole metric I would enter
<I>ds</I><sup>2</sup> = &hellip; 2<I>a</I>sin<sup>2</sup>&theta;(<I>r</I><sup>2</sup> + <I>a</I><sup>2</sup> - &Delta;)/&Sigma; <I>dtd&phi;</I> &hellip;
which comes out as: ds2 = … 2asin2θ(r2 + a2 - Δ)/Σ dtdφ
NB for the HTML-savvy: To show HTML code, the pre and code tags don't appear to work: instead use &lt;tag&gt;&lt;/tag&gt; and &amp;char; for special characters.

Jeremy: Physoc Monthly Rag er... Respectable, High Quality Newspaper

Our lovable and erratically-printed newsletter Jeremy has been around for at least 30 years (in order to understand why it's called Jeremy, please read the 2008 O-week Edition of Jeremy) and we hope to continue it in 2009. With two brilliant editors, we guarantee you that it will entertain you each and every month!

Jeremy wants you!

If you think you have something brilliant that deserves to be printed in Jeremy, please send it to mailto:jeremy@physics.usyd.edu.au.

This entry should have all the Jeremy issues which we have in electronic format (.pdf files). Only the most recent issue will be kept in high and low quality format: back issues will be in whatever format uploaded correctly at the time, bandwidth notwithstanding.

Introduction and FAQ

Welcome to the new Physoc website for 2009 (and hopefully many years to come). The old site wasn't receiving much traffic, mainly due to its sole advertisement being a tiny thumbnail on the School of Physics site, so your illustrious webmasters Sylvie and Francesca hope that the new, interactive site will be more entertaining.
