Don’t be surprised if someone humiliates you. And mathematicians wonder why many people don’t like mathematics! For my views on this forum, read this paper

How did Maxwell derive his famous velocity distribution law, one of the foundational elements of statistical mechanics? As you will see, he used geometry and functional equation concepts to derive the law in only a few lines. To see how the gaps are filled in read the detailed paper here.
