[give us examples]

FWIW I studied physics. Theoretical physics. I loved math (still
do). I *always* learnt by examples. Or better even: by alternating
layers of theory and examples. To the point that I'm convinced that
maths is a craft, like pottery or carpentry. You need *practice*.
No practice without examples. But that's just me?

That said, you were so terminant that I just dared to provide
something minimal (not even a theory but just a kind of refcard,
let's call it a theory's skeleton).

If you're less terminant next time, I'll provide again examples ;-)
