Omitting it would decrease the length of theorem conditions. But without this condition conditions would be warrantenly false.

Example: “for a distributive lattice with least element there exists no more than one difference a\b of elements a and b” vs “for a distributive lattice there exists no more than one difference a\b of elements a and b”

I suspect that omitting existence of least element would hinder exposition, because in this case instead of saying “the least element” I need to say in the proof a little more subtle “an element of the set of least elements” (this set is always of one or zero elements).

What is better for: a. research monograph; b. textbook?

]]>Just for my curiousity, 1+2+3+4+5+6 …. = -1/12 is it true ????? It is used to resolve the “Casimir effect” ! (see demonstration :

In french but easy to understand:

Do you work on this topic or it is not a serious topic ???

]]>Some time ago you were an advocate of publishing no further than arxiv. However, with their comments it is more of the same. Is there a time stamping technique you can recommend so that we can move on and publish at our websites? ]]>

The main issue here is that after the decision there is no way back: If I publish it traditionally I may lose copyright and be not able to distribute my LaTeX files for free, and reversely if I put it online with a free license, this may be an obstacle for publishing it.

I ask you the advice, what to choose?

I am also afraid, that if I don’t publish it traditionally, math community may refuse to cite my work (and thus the world is not worth to receive my discoveries). This is even despite that publishing under copyleft is better for hunting errors, as in GiHub and similar free Git hosters there are error reporting zillas.

Please help me to make the correct choice.
