Whenever mathematicians invoke theorems, I always picture them as anime characters calling out their attacks in a fight.

Dedekinnnndddd CUT! (slices across the real line)

Frobenius! Automorphism! (transforms into a car)

Taaaate... Shafareviiich... GROUP! (summons a swarm of sharp geometric shurikens)

RIEMAAAAANNNN!!! HYPOTHESISSSSS!! (ultimate attack, unblockable, ignores all defenses, huge mushroom cloud leaving behind a huge smouldering crater)

@JordiGH yugioh is a good way to represent when you're using lemmas to shorten the proof of a theorem, it's like you're fulfilling the summoning requirements

"I sacrifice Lemmas 3.5, 4.2 and 6.1"

"I sacrifice Lemmas 3.5, 4.2 and 6.1"

@JordiGH that sounds like Bungou Stray Dogs but with mathematicians instead of authors and poets

Kinda surprised an anime series on that premise hasn't popped up yet

@urusan There's a result that was proven in a funny way. Assume RH: Then the result holds. Assume RH is false: Then the result holds.

Therefore, the result holds.

I'm trying to remember what crazy thing was proven this way.

ビリビリ@Sheepy@toast.cafeoh right, it's time to call my partner, the ultimate... Darboux's theorem - Universal parametrization, I summon you in attack position!
