Walter, thank you for the reports and suggestions. I implemented most of them.
I am not sure what black-and-white title page you mean, I submitted only the color title page. And now when I reuploaded I cannot figure out what you mean.
About formulas. The formula is the most compact and precise form of function definition, that is their main intention here. Sinc could be normalized or unnormalized, standard deviation could be named differently but not quite in different language, you may remember what gudermannian is, but not quite sure which is forward, which is inverse. Formula answers all that with very little ink. Same applies to distributions too, but in practice they are known only by their names anyway. Also, you did not include all of them in the Owner's manual, and you were not pressed for space. I may add them later if I manage to edit the text down further.
The reason for blank second page is that I want to keep title page and main body together in one file. Word treats even and odd pages differently, and I want to keep main body of the book in sync with that. The title page is printed using different process on different paper. In my case, my book body is all black and white (with some grayscale), but title page features some colors and printed on thicker paper. So the blank page is just a separator between 2 different objects (intended to be printed separately), that keeps second object (main body) true to even/odd page relationship. In anther words, this page is intentionally left blank.
Please compare s, SERR, and SERRw. Stack 'diagrams' are suggesting sx is recalled in all those which is wrong. Compare also sw. x[bar] etc. show an alternative.
"Consistent" way would be to write "ry rx" or "y x", but "sy sx" makes more sense to me in that context. Labels in stack diagrams are just that-- labels. Entry text is where the definition resides.
Also, epsilon. Working on it.
Please look for a proper letter for lower case phi.
Isn't that what it looks like already?
(-1)x shall look this way.
Indeed. Not sure how that happened. However, i might keep them out. Keeping "/" can be justified for having visually different keyboard key and reference to IDIV.
+. -. * are missing.
What's wrong with those? I do not see anything.
Compare e.g. the stack 'diagrams' of >DEG and DEG>. Consistent?
I enabled hyphenation, but it did not give me anything, so I disabled it back.
I consider the title of the book, author's name and a date very important information. All three should be displayed prominently on the cover. If you have more than one book, you should know why I feel this way.
