This page exists to make room for, and invite the participation of mathematicians. There are some mathematical parts of WikiMechanics that should be addressed more completely if possible. So far, what we have here is just a jumble of notes, back-links and outstanding questions. But it would sure be great to hear from the neighbors …

WikiMechanics uses results from statistics and trigonometry without knowing if they are on firm logical ground and free from any hidden "physical" assumptions? We assume that number theory, arithmetic and algebra are okay. And we assume that geometry is *not* okay in this regard. Indeed, WikiMechanics might be considered to be some sort of physical theory of geometry. And perhaps even a primitive physical theory of probability as well. The WikiMechanics definitions that pertain to the Euclidean axioms are; a point, a line, a plane, a straight line, and parallel lines.
