"Alternative Math" is the name I give to ideas proposed by
people who, for whatever reason, have not (yet) been accepted by the mathematics
establishment. In some cases, these lone pioneers have developed methods
and nomenclatures that are foreign to the mainstream practitioners, so their
results remain out of reach of the mainstream. In other cases, these innovators have
proved alternative theorems that contradict theorems that have been accepted for
centuries. In all cases, the new ideas are not accepted by traditional
mathematicians.

A few years ago, I collected several of these Alternative Math ideas in this
one section, knowing I was running the risk of alienating the original thinkers
responsible for them. I received a good amount of hate mail, some of which
I published on this website, which further infuriated the alternative
mathematicians.

Now I have seen the error of my ways, and removed the entire section on
alternative math from my website. Sorry, everyone.
