Normal physics symbols and conventions were NOT used in my analysis, as I had trouble ensuring consistency and specificity. Instead, a series of evolving symbol systems were used over the course of the project, as the reader can see from the various files. A short description of symbols, plus links to more detailed programming code that specifies the
Also important was the [development, usage] of "Howell's FlatLiner Notation" (HFLN), which is briefly describe in a section below.

Short description :
mathB = "???math Howell YYMMDD HHhMMm.txt???"
mathH = "math Howell YYMMDD HHhMMm.txt"
mathL = "math Lucas, cos - 1 [yes,no] YYMMDD HHhMMm.txt"
where "YYMMDD HHhMMm" = year month day hour minute of the document version
For a more complete description, see :
"Howell - Variables, notations, styles for Bill Lucas, Universal Force.odt"
20Aug2019 - this is out of date, as are symbol translations in this file!! :
insert symTrans_lineType '/[#$%^&] ' symbols at the start of lines or within text in a line as needed ( do not include the apostrophes) :
'/* ' comment only - no translation or extraction of symbols
'/$ ' applies tranList_Lucas_bads to a string
'/% ' applies tranList_HFLN_bads to a string
'/^ ' applies tranList_Lucas_to_HFLN to a string, translated string has "%^" at start of line to help subsequent editing
`& applies tranList_HFLN_to_Lucas to a string, translated string has "$&" at start of line to help subsequent editing
symTrans_lineTypes are PERSISTENT for multiple lines
- until a symTrans_lineType appears as the first character on a subsequent line.
where mixed (cart [Lucas,HFLN] [symbols,expressions]) are in a line
- put a `^ as the first character of a line to be translated to HFLN [symbols,expressions]
- put a `& as the first character of a line to be translated to Lucas [symbols,expressions]
special codes
#add_eqn - start of summary descriptions and results for a formula from Lucas's book
HFLN - re-expressed equations in HFLN (Howell's Flat-Liner Notation)
