Since I never used math with ConTeXt, I tried to replicate XKCD 2034 as
an exercise (see below and attached). I’d like to put it on the wiki and
in my book.
I know this is nonsense, but I’d like to do it right.
In some cases I’m unsure which symbol the author meant, e.g. p or \rho,
0 or O, 1 or I or | ...
Yes, I could have used proper Unicode characters (ρ, π etc.).
Can you answer my questions (%? in the source)? (Partly TeX related,
partly math/physics related.)

\startformula SU(2)U(I) \times SU(U(2))\stopformula

\stopformula
% ? I guess the first \delta should be crossed somehow?
% ? Is it possible to get \hat accents over the brackets? \hat{\left(}
doesn’t work.
% ? What’s that symbol after \right) ? (f with two bars, maybe kind of
integral?)

\startformula h(t) + \Omega + G \cdot \Lambda ...

... of Truly Deep Physics: \startformula \hat{H} - \c{u}_0 = O\stopformula
% ? How can I get a cedilla under the u? \c{u} is wrong.
