in which context? it can mean the mean of numbers....known as "mew"
It could mean a lot of things. In inorganic chemistry, the symbol, mu, is used in nomenclature to show that there is a bridging molecule with the metal center.
just like in math, and maybe other topics?
In statistics mu represents the Population mean.
begin with this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micro-
In statistics mu means population mean
In physics, it often represents as coefficient of friction. It has many meanings, depending on context.
and this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mu_(letter)
Yes, researching would be a good start.
In physics, it represents linear density for 1D objects. In pharmacology it represents an opiate receptor. In software, it represents applications such as uTorrent... In ordinary differential equations, it also represents the integrating factor. And In thermochemistry, it represents chemical potential.
Wow kropot totally didn't see your response
Is there an approximate value?
The use of it as the integrating factor in ODEs doesnt seem commonplace enough for that.
@Jezebel493 can I PM you something?
It also represent the value of the Ramanujan–Soldner constant \[\mu \approx 1.451\]
So its a different meaning for a different concept, right? Also isn't it also like in the Greek Alphabet?
Yup it's a greek letter. Different meaning in different context
