I'm trying to organise the standard information on each equation in a template, [[Template:Equation]].  You can see some instances of this template in action on the [[cubic NLS]] page, as well as on some of its children.  I'll slowly start propagating this template across the equations (also an excuse to do some more cleanup as I revisit each page).

:More generally, we now have a [[DispersiveWiki:Template|template page]] to organise the emerging set of templates we will use.  Actually we could use some very short templates, such as a Schrodinger template to get that umlaut automatically in there, or perhaps templates for popular journals which contain HTML links to their web pages; the possibilities are endless :-).  [[User:Tao|Terry]] 15:05, 10 August 2006 (EDT)
 
 
 
== Copyright ==
 
 
Ugh, I hate legal issues, but at some point we have to choose a copyright license for this wiki to govern how the content can be copied
 
in the future.  It seems that most Wiki's use the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GFDL GFDL], which basically allows anyone to copy the material so long as they attribute the source, and also extend the same freedom to subsequent users of the material - the term for this seems to be "copyleft".  (See for instance [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Copyrights Wikipedia's copyright license].)  I am not experienced with these things but this seems reasonable enough to me.  Any thoughts?  (Eventually the licence sill need to be put on [[Project:Copyrights|this page]].)
