Comics about mathematics, science, and the student life.


A scientist and her friend are on a raised platform, overlooking a scene where many other scientists (her coauthors) are congregated. One is reclined on a chair and is reading the paper. She says to her friend, "My changes are almost through the gauntlet! I almost can't believe--" Then the last coauthor reading the paper exclaims, "I have a few objections..." Caption: Coauthors.

No matter how high of a probability p that a given coauthor will accept, your overall chances of your coauthors accepting the changes will dwindle with the number of coauthors.
