comment How many symmetries does the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality have?
If it's generated by those transpositions, then $x_i$ can be swapped with $y_j$ via $(x_ix_k)(x_ky_j)$, so I don't see why it wouldn't just be $S_{2n}$.

comment Quaternions vs Axis angle
@AndreKR what else do you want it compared to? You should edit the wiki if find it unclear, or if you have more information. You could also write an answer here.

comment Why does the condition of a function being differentiable always require an open domain?
Whoa gosh, old question. My point was that if you take a function which isn't differentiable at $0$ and restrict it to $(0,1)$, then it might look just like some other function that is differentiable at $0$ (i.e. $|x|$ vs $x$). I claim that makes for a poor choice of definition because differentiability at a point ought to be consistent amongst every extension of a function around that point, not that no extensions should exist where it is differentiable.
