The Quantum Pontiff


A new entry in the best title every competition:

arXiv:0810.0827: Sine function with a cosine attitude
Authors: A. D. Alhaidari

Someday I promise that I will use the phrase “an exponential function with a logarithmic attitude.”

    From the abstract;

    The latter vanishes at the origin whereas the derivative of the former becomes zero there.

    So the latter is the derivative of the former? Or more precisely; the asymptotically sine one has a derivative that’s asymptotically cosine. Whodathunk?
