I gave evidence on page two of this thread--the American Mathematical Society adheres to just such a convention.

AHHHHHHH YOU'RE WRONG!

The "convention" you claim it adheres to you pulled out of an abstract about alternative loop algebra in which the author states juxtaposition will take precedence over dot multiplication for the purpose of CONVENIENCE to denote the order of multiplication in a NONASSOCIATIVE PRODUCT.

ABSTRACT.

JOURNAL.

LOOP ALGEBRA.

CONVENIENCE.

NONASSOCIATIVE PRODUCT.

This isn't a !@#$%^- discussion about loop algebra and nonassociative products. This is a basic math equation following the fundamental laws of mathematics, and adheres to the associative property. WHICH MAKES YOU WRONG.

Stop trying to look smart by spreading false information.

Huh?

I don't know what you're talking about. The thing I'm referring to isn't an abstract of a journal article, it's a guideline for submission for articles for AMS's journal.
