• The question was raised in [section 3.3], and we must indeed ask whether the real-number spacetime continuity that is almost universally assumed in physical theories is really the appropriate mathematics for describing the ultimate constituents of Nature.

• If you're thinking of numbers on a real-number continuum, sure: 3 is "less than pi."

"Yes, our announcement post title is grammatically incorrect." Ann Althouse 2009

• Similarly we could be misled by the representation of a concept as a number into thinking that there is naturally an infinitely extendable scale for that concept, since the real-number line continues on to infinity in both directions.

• The same point can be put in terms of sentences: Frege insists that the consistency-question that arises for the sentences under their geometric interpretation is a different issue from the one that arises for those sentences under their real-number interpretation; for Hilbert on the other hand, there is just one question, and it is answered in the affirmative if there is any interpretation under which the sentences express truths.

• SOLUTION 3-6 Consider g (x) ¼ 1/x, with the restriction that the domain and range can attain any real-number value except zero.

• Polar graph of a lemniscate centered at the origin, with radius a. THREE-LEAFED ROSE The general form of the equation of a three-leafed rose centered at the origin in the polar plane is given by either of the following two formulas: r ¼ a cos 3 r ¼ a sin 3 where a is a real-number constant greater than 0.

• LEMNISCATE The general form of the equation of a lemniscate centered at the origin in the polar plane is given by the following formula: r ¼ aðcos 2Þ1 = 2 where a is a real-number constant greater than 0, representing the maximum radius.

• CHAPTER 5 Polar Coordinates 81 CIRCLE CENTERED AT ORIGIN The equation of a circle centered at the origin in the polar plane is given by the following formula: r¼a where a is a real-number constant greater than 0.
