A commenter who goes by the name of An on the SCIAM thread notes with contempuous disbelief that the standard format of articles at Chaos, Solitons and Fractals is not to number equations. Are there other math and physics journals where that's standard? In a modern math or physics journal whose content can be expected to consist mostly of equations that's not desireable.
The practice is particularly relevant to El Naschie because he is absurdly fond of referring to his own earlier CSF papers. So of course the references are invariably to entire papers. I think he does this to make it intentionally difficult to follow his disordered train of thought.
I noted that even when citing Witten's work, he preferred pointing to papers of his own. The self-cited papers do not even mention Witten's work in their titles.
