The book gave me a glimpse of the rich world of differentiable functions of complex variable and I felt dizzy as if wandering off into a foreign place, quite different from the world I had previously known.
Wikipedia gives the following informal wording: “To every differentiable symmetry generated by local actions, there corresponds a conserved current.”
Some informal background: a Riemannian manifold is a differentiable manifold (where the tangent space at each point has an inner product) with a positive-definite metric tensor, d (x, y) ≥ 0.
I propose a continuous tax as an infinitely differentiable monotonic curve over the open set domain (0, inf) with a range of (0,1), where total taxes owed is simply and elegantly calculated by integrating the CONTINUOUS TAX-RATE from 0 to x (x being income)
(In the case of a stochastic process, these histories will typically be non-differentiable).
