Made a link-aware progressive disclosure javascript https://gist.github.com/kartikprabhu/45528a06915ac2d92b1ec83084b31b84 It is adapted from the one by @adactio ( https://adactio.com/journal/10365 ), but added a few things so that if the URL links to a part of the page that can be hidden (using a fragment or fragmention) then that content is not hidden by default. Compare https://kartikprabhu.com/papers vs https://kartikprabhu.com/papers#coframes%20at%20fixed%20connection I had to change a few things in fragmention.js for this to work though https://github.com/kartikprabhu/fragmentions/commit/30e8f7633fcafdf68370aeb525760609b4f22849

yes, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homogeneous_space#Homogeneous_spaces_as_coset_spaces even though I don’t know what you mean by “isometry”.

In which signature is the “conservation of convention law” stated?

‘I know, I’ll use Latex macros’ Now you have two problems (also see https://xkcd.com/208/ and https://xkcd.com/927/)

hopefully you are using the maths convention — phi_^* for pullback since it is a “dual map”

replied to a post on Twitter with
there are worse convention-violations in GR; signature, Riemann tensor, extrinsic curvature… comparatively this is not a big deal!
Kartik Prabhu
replied to a post on Twitter with
because it is consistent with the index positions for objects being pulled-back, forms, vs objects being pushed-forward, vectors.
