"In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them."

John von Neumann (1903-1957)

What makes a research paper worth publishing?
Although apparently simple, this question is very hard

"This isn't right, this isn't even wrong."
Wolfgang Pauli (1900-1958), upon reading a young physicist's paper
