I am trying to collaborate with a fellow student on a piece of work. Unfortunately we have now reached a creative impasse.
I am under the impression that to include punctuation marks in equations appearing in a body of text is unnecessary, and that punctuation after equations can lead to unclear reading---what if, for example, one is using index notation?
My colleague claims that it does not make it harder to read, and that it is in fact much more satisfying to appreciate the mathematics as part of a broader sentence structure.
Any thoughts to contribute to this debate?
