  1. bivector
    • 2009 02[1], Notices of the American Mathematical Society: 
      ” [CMF 2000] Starting in 1974, working with Moshe Flato and Daniel Sternheimer, Lichnerowicz formulated the definition of a Poisson manifold in terms of a bivector, i.e., the contravariant 2-tensor advocated by Lie, Caratheodory, and Tulczyjew, which is the counterpart of the 2-form of symplectic geometry.

  2. commutant
    • 2009 02[2], Notices of the American Mathematical Society: 
      He has further introduced the notion of a solid von Neumann algebra, which means that the relative commutant of any diffuse subalgebra is injective, and has shown that various group von Neumann algebras are solid.

  5. epiphanic
    • 2009 02[5], Notices of the American Mathematical Society: 
      Poincare famously described his own epiphanic experience of completing a perplexing proof, and many mathematicians are familiar with that kind of “aha” gift of insight.

    • 2009 02[17], Notices of the American Mathematical Society: 
      We shall use some easily justified orthogonalities. for instance the coordinate triple rotates to the triple (2, 3,.3) that starts our proof, which in turn rotates (about .1) to the triples (8,.7, 9) and (.8, 7,.9) that finish it.

  21. stochasticism
    • 2009 02[21], Notices of the American Mathematical Society: 
      It is precisely the “semi-free” nature of twinned particles, and more generally of entanglement, that shows that something very different from classical stochasticism is at play here.

      This is a far-reaching generalization of a famous theorem of Ge and other related results and has been used by many other people, who have combined this technique with Popa’s to get many very strong results on tensor product decompositions of factors and Cartan subalgebras in factors.
