Der Neoliberalismus hat in den letzten Jahren weite Bereiche unserer Gesellschaft geprägt. Es ist ihm gelungen, zumindest in einem Großteil der medialen Öffe- lichkeit die Legitimität des grundgesetzlich geschützten Sozialstaates – erstmals nach 1945 – zu erschüttern und dessen Säulen ins Wanken zu bringen.

Adding up the contribution from the other two sides we get ∂Q ∂P − 4 ∂x ∂y and dividing by the area (4 2 2 ) we get ∂Q ∂P − ∂x ∂y spin(V) again. 1. Green’s Theorem Let U ⊂ R2 be connected and simply connected (has no holes in it), and has boundary a simple closed curve, that is a loop which does not intersect itself, say . Let V be a smooth vector field V x y = P (x, y) Q(x, y) defined on a region which is open and contains U and its boundary loop. 58 CHAPTER 5. 8: Adding paths around four sub-squares Then V= U where the loop ∂Q ∂P − ∂x ∂y is traversed in the positive (anticlockwise) sense.

I shall call this S(f, a) where a ∈ R. 1. 2: The function f (x) |x| in transformation terms. It is plausible that this is a meaningful idea, and I can say it in English easily enough. A mathematician is someone who believes that it has to be said in Algebra before it really makes sense. How then can we say it in algebra? We can agree that it is easy to define the stretch factor for an interval, just divide the length after by the length before, and take account of whether it has been turned upside down by putting in a minus sign if necessary.

We can agree that it is easy to define the stretch factor for an interval, just divide the length after by the length before, and take account of whether it has been turned upside down by putting in a minus sign if necessary. To define it at a point, I just need to take the stretch factor for small intervals around the point and take the limit as the intervals get smaller.
