“Mirrors and reflections” in Japanese

Alexandre V. Borovik and Anna Borovik, “Mirrors and Reflections: The Geometry of Finite Reflection Groups



  1. Congratulations! It is especially interesting to see the spelling of the name of authors by hieroglyphs 🙂

  2. oh yes, we noticed…

  3. Sorry to be pedantic but in opposition to the title, subtitle, publisher, etc. the name of the authors are not written in hieroglyphs nor in an ideographic system but transcribed in the traditional syllabic system (you could say phonetic) called katakana. This system is very old (more than 1000 years). It was last officially reformed in 1946.

    Here, Borovik is transcribed ボロビック = BO-RO-BI-tsu-Ku = BOROBIKK
    the small fourth character is there to “double” the next consonant so that it is properly pronounced as a “hard” k.
