 Subject: Number Species   Wed Jan 18, 2012 7:25 am Hi all,I have a good news.I have started a Romanian article about Species in Wikipedia : http://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Specii_de_numereThe title is "Number Species". By vulgarisation, a species becomes in my article a multiset of permutation groups.Q: Then, why an article about species, and not an article about permutation groups ?A: 1) The Theory of Species adds combinatorial meaning and more ; it is not just equivalent to the theory of permutation group.2) The Theory of Species offers a systematical description of many combinatorial objects.3) The Theory of Species offers a tool, the e.g.f., to quickly obtain numerical results on combinatorial questions.4) The Theory of Species offers a foundation for the rigurous meaning of the gramatical preposition OF.5) The Theory of Species open a generalisation - at the same level of understanding of cardinal and ordinal numbers and so on....6) Computer Scientists need a simplified approach rather then a sophisticated algebraical one.7) Ingineers need a simplified explanation of what field (line), group (vector space) and what "degree" of liberty could means. and so on... I use French as metalanguage as well as diagrams.I am also planning to insert combinatorial definitions whereever is possible ­­
