comment Weierstrass factorization with $L^2$ estimates?
Ah, I had not thought to use Jensen's formula. I will see if I can cook up a concrete counterexample. I was thinking of L^2 wrt lebesgue measure. I will wait a day or so to accept your answer. Thanks.

comment Smooth analgoue of Dehn Invariants?
I would guess that you would need to capture geometry, not just topology. I was thinking something like normal vectors to the boundary faces converging to normal vectors to the surface.

When you fill the horn, it is painting the inside of the horn. It is just that the coat of paint is getting thinner and thinner as you go down the horn.

@Ben Crowell: You can also integrate x^2 using geometry: Interpret $$\int_0^r \pi x^2$$ as the volume of a cone.

@Joel: I think he is saying that he would like to be able to downvote some answers to more freely reorganize the rankings, but he does not feel comfortable doing so if someones points are on the line. It is more appropriate to downvote a CW answer.

comment Math Annotate Platform?
@Wlodzimierz I think the best source is git-scm.com/book. It takes some getting used to - you will have to play around a bit. You will also have to know how to navigate your way around with command line.

comment Math Annotate Platform?
What I mean is that this system already exists, and is perfectly suited to the task. I cannot imagine writing papers without git anymore. This is a general skill which we should really be teaching in middle school - editing your work by saving over old copies is just horrible compared to the elegance and ease of using git. This is only more apparent for any kind of collaborative effort.

The basic material being handled is source code - .tex files to be specific. If you have an idea for how to improve a paper, just start a new branch and modify it.
