comment Standard notation reference
@DavidZaslavsky: That's funny, all the questions I really would want an answer to (questions I'd not be able to answer by reading the right books/articles) are "soft" or meta questions.

comment Will adding heat to a material increase or decrease entropy?
Either one reads this statement as equivalent to the formula in Rons answer, or it's just not true (e.g. if one considers adiabatic compression).

comment The Dirac Equation with a 6x6 Matrix
Going in the direction of David BarMoshe's answer, this free book on fields by Warren Siegel covers some of the math around page $129\pm 20$.

comment Laplace operator's interpretation
@PeterMorgan: As the number of physics.SE users is manageable, the credit points seem like a useless or at least unused resource. The number of featured threads is also strangely small here, compared to say the math board where they have always 5-15 featured questions. I can sit on 3500 points, or I'll use them for bumping an interesting thread. The rate I get points is predictable and I'll have 500 once I actually need them. Also, I was hoping someone would start ranting about codifferentials and friends. Lastly, I want to know if I can go marble cake also the game on users pages.

I happens from time to time that people ask me these kind of history questions. I'd usually say "It was probably Bourbaki", but now I can go ignorat and just post the link, adding "Oh, and tell me once you've found out!".

Thanks. (I accepted an answer shortly before this post, even if it's equally interesting.) The history link is interesting too.

Thanks. It'll probably not get any better then that IUPAC link you gave, so I give you green light.

comment Could general relativity and gauge theories in principle be covered in one course?
@ArnoldNeumaier: Yeah, you can move one point to another if the space is already there, but the idea seems to be to generate the whole space from the point using the group. Seems strange to me. (Maybe it's by using the parametrization of the Lie-Group to map out the "space" and thereby giving meaning to it?)

comment What does QFT “get right” that QM “gets wrong”?
Stupid question: What precisely holds you from building a non-relativistic formalism which computes an object "$\psi(y,z,t',x,t)$", interpreted as a transition from "$(x,t)$" to "$(y,t')$ as well as $(z,t')$"?

comment Mathematical description in GR
@RonMaimon: Do you have an introductionary books or something of that sort in mind, which deals with the question what can and what can not be represented in graphs this way. I mean abstract definite mathematical considerations about representation of structures with 2D (or maybe 3D) puictures, constructed just to store information.
