A day in the life of TT.
Just in case you've ever wondered what a day in the working life of this transient theorist might entail, here's a choice snippet from a paper I'm trying to digest (note, this really is English, I promise, no fooling):
"The impact function I maps the unit cube into the L-dimensional parallelepiped spanned by the impact niche vectors Ci while the sensitivity function S maps the unit cube into a parallelepiped spanned by the sensitivity niche vectors Si."
I remain undecided as to whether it's more frightening that such a sentence exists, or that I think I've mostly figured out what it means. And it's sweeeeeet!!!
