That page of his notebook looks very much the same as my sketch notes when I have to calculate something. Paper is also not particularly expensive on Gaia.
Yup, exactly. Which likely confirms my suspicion that Eldor is emotionally
stunted. Treating the killing attempt like spilling milk and then leaving her
out of the eye after knowing that she is able to penetrate most of this
shields…I do not think this a normal response for a human (or elf) .
“That’s wrong.”
“How did you-?!”
“I can tell when people make annoying mistakes.”
“…You lie.”
“You just wrote the limit of a term as n approaches something without putting n in the term.”
“Well, I can do that because this is magic math, wench.”

Also, I imagine magical formulas have geometric aspects to them, so in terms of clarity, writing out the relationships of energy and such is actually better than trying to scrunch it in.
Also, do any of those formulae look like anything familiar to anyone?
If by that, do you mean is he using actual mathematical notation, yes he is…for the most part. If you are asking if we recognize what field of science and/or math he is working in, I certainly don’t recognize it.
Not sure if Lilith is just death-staring at Eldor, or whether she’s trying to interpret what he’s writing…

@ Samantha:
You Need An Eldor in life, buy one get one free, cooks for you, cleans home, barks at theives, and destroys countries and organisation, available in market, 10% off, VAT applied (funds directly help the manufacturer)
The page Eldor is writing on is bent slightly; it’s not perfectly flat like it would be if it were laying on a flat surface.
But the lines on the paper are perfectly horizontal, which is only possible if the paper is laying flat.
Is the paper magic?! That’s why Lilith is looking at the notepad that way!
She just discovered the secret to Eldor’s powerful magical abilities: magic paper!
Well. I guess when you kill people on a daily basis habitually without regard, an attempt on your life not being shocking would be like not being surprised that other people brush their teeth.
At least he seems to have ethically consistent values, lolol
This is just great! Apart from Eldor wasting valuable space on his paper, writing using a pen that does not seem very refillable and the mystery about what is the purple mist on the sixth panel.
Well Eldor is not solving a mathematical problem, he is solving a physics problem…
our calculations are rather different then pure mathematicians…
I present you the bill of rights and liberties of a physicist.
We hold these postulates to be intuitively obvious, that all physicists are born equal, to a first approximation, and are endowed by their creator with certain discrete privileges, among them a mean rest life, n degrees of freedom, and the following rights which are invariant under all linear transformations:
To approximate all problems to ideal cases.
To use order of magnitude calculations whenever deemed necessary (i.e. whenever one can get away with it).
To use the rigorous method of “squinting” for solving problems more complex than the addition of positive real integers.
To dismiss all functions which diverge as “nasty” and “unphysical.”
To invoke the uncertainty principle when confronted by confused mathematicians, chemists, engineers, psychologists, dramatists, und andere schweinhund.
When pressed by non-physicists for an explanation of (4) to mumble in a sneering tone of voice something about physically naive mathematicians.
To equate two sides of an equation which are dimensionally inconsistent, with a suitable comment to the effect of, “Well, we are interested in the order of magnitude anyway.”
To invent fictitious forces to delude the general public.
To justify shaky reasoning on the basis that it gives the right answer.
To cleverly choose convenient initial conditions, using the principle of general triviality.
To use plausible arguments in place of proofs, and thenceforth refer to these arguments as proofs.
To take on faith any principle which seems right but cannot be proved.
“You just wrote the limit of a term as n approaches something without putting n in the term.”
That’s no problem at all.
My guess is that Lilith is trying to interfere with Eldor’s mind and cause him to write something wrong (just a random extra digit or two will do) and make a fatal mistake in his calculations.
In Denmark the highest possible grade you can get from an assignment/exam is currently 12. So I thought that he was giving her grades when I read this.

@ MaxArt:
We’ve also seen indications that the elves – or at least Eldor’s engineers – have a substantially more technological society then we’ve seen elsewhere on Gaia.
Eldor’s calculations don’t make sense to me, but they look a lot like quantum-mechanical state-change equations. H is usually a Hilbert operator, and l written like that is often a quantified state number. There is a clearly recognizable vector, which seems to hold a progression of values until some parameter easily calculable from l</i, and the round thing on the right seems to indicate a system undergoing state changes with a set of three governing parameters, which are, based in the rest of this scribbling, probably complex vectors, matrices or tensors (or something more complex). The final text includes the term T raised to a power of some parameters, and the Hilbertian operating on this from the left. Actually it is not the Hilbertian proper but nH which might be either a ccomolex conjugate in some odd marking system or just something made-up (from Watsonian perspective, peculiar to Gaian magic). The exponent is odd, though. Usually, you see the end result having a term with Neper’s constant raised to the eigenvalues of a matrix times some parameter. Now, the exponent raises T, which might be time, temperature or something else, like a matrix. And while this is possible, it is inelegant, as the eigenfrequencies of the solution are masked this way. (Most likely, T is a matrix or a vector, because the Hilbertian operates on it.) And the result seems to be a real number, which is even more surprising. Essentially, it means nHT^… is an inner product. This means T and H must be either something really complex, with a well defined inner product, or simply vectors. The latter makes no sense, because a Hilbertoam should be at least a matrix, and you would take, anyhow, the complex conjugate of H to get an inner product with T.
Anyhow, Eldor is Bhaal, surely. These scribblings are altogether too clean, and doing the last part of calculation in your head without writing down the actual values is inhuman. Or maybe he is just Gaia’s Erdös.

well the nHT really comes close to thermodynamics equasion… in general we use nKT… maybe this is something reserved to the energy of the magical system in general.
I beg to differ. The term nk_bT is, naturally, the part of the ideal gas equation. In this case, however, it is ^nH, with n in superscript, which would mean something like the nth iteration of H, or nth derivative of H, which makes sense, because as you see, it is part if a limit where n approaches something.
From a clearly Doylian perspective, I would say that this scribbling is a really beautiful set of utter nonsense. It looks a lot like advanced undergraduate quantum physics and hints of some really interesting and impressive maths behind Eldor’s magic, but is really just nonsense. But it is advanced enough to allow me, a PhD in physics, to maintain my suspension of disbelief. I heartfeltly congratulate the authors!

@ Paeris Kiran:
Nah, HT stands for Hodge theater from Inter-Universal Teichmüller theory by Shinichi Mochizuki. I am not even close to hoping to ever understand it, but I believe that it suggests applying state-of-the-art Mochizuki’s number theory to resolve some physics-related or engineering-related problem; or possibly to apply an aspect of Mochizuki’s deformation theory to some Gaian version of string theory. Which just means that Eldor is a genius (we know that), and that he thinks large-scale (we know that as well).
I am almost sure that getting “12” as a result is a joke similar to the idea that “the answer to the great question of life, the universe and everything is 42”. Especially as it seems to have no sense in this particular equation. On the other hand, it can come directly from Mochizuki’s script, and I am simply too stupid to understand…
Test four: one through 3 but with preperation and knives, lots of knives.
Thanks to Viviana’s assassination attempt we already know that knives do not work.
I think what happened here is Lilith was convinced that with her studies of BAB, she could defeat all his shields and kill him magically. She learned that it was a simple matter for him to replace the shields as quickly as she destroyed them. As long as he remained two or three shields ahead of her, he was invulnerable to her magical attacks.
Seeing this, she improvised on the spur of the moment. Remembering that her slap from Monster-60 worked perfectly fine, she attacked him with blunt force. That would have probably have worked except it appears that he’s better at hand-to-hand combat than she. Nor did it help that her body and mind have been weakened by a month of concentrated study of Isaac’s book.
My advice to her now would be to start preparing blunt force trauma for him. How about an invisible ten-ton weight just over his head ready to fall? Or at least a good, hefty club she could grab and swing when his back it turned.
I am reminded of how the Ewoks defeated the imperial walker with those logs.
@ Paeris Kiran:
Yeah. I am also an applied scientist, and nowadays, quite distant from this kind of mathematical physics. BTW, Markas is quite right about physical chemistry. You can see, on the right, inside a circle, the term C_n, which would usually mean n-fold rotational symmetry, if my memory serves me right. That is something you typically encounter in spectroscopy (a field common for physics and chemistry), as well as in molecular, solid state and atomic physics, which would make sense, considering that Gaian magic seems to have a lot to do with wave and field mechanics (interference of shields etc.).
So, as I said, this nonsense is good nonsense. It makes sense just enough to be intriguing.
fighting him is such a waste of time
Lilith would be far more productive mastering the spell book
and later figuring out how to help her friends escape
and perhaps later escaping herself.
page 7 has a passage similar to the first line od Eldor’s scribbling:
A D-Θ±ell-Hodge theater †HT D-Θ±ell
may
be thought of as a bookkeeping device that allows one to keep track of the action
of the F±
l -symmetry on the labels
( −l
< … < −1 < 0 < 1 < … < l )
—
Whoever said it is a combinatorial problem also got it right, check page 8 on the paper.
The metaphor is quite beautiful, considering how the human mathe,atician sees his own work:
the theory of the combinatorial structure of a Θ±ellNF Hodge theater — and, indeed, the theory of the present series of papers! — may
be regarded as a sort of solution to the problem of constructing “global multiplicative subspaces” and “global canonical generators” [
IuT treats number theory much like gaian mages treat reality:
, such “simulated global objects” may only be achieved at the cost of
“dismantling”, or performing “surgery” on, the global prime structure
of the number fields involved
12 could be a trivial solution for one such "surgery" on reality…
one…two…fi………….AAAAAAAAARGHHH !!

I’m more surprised about those printed lines.
