My Papa’s Recipe for the Ziti

(Ricetta da mio padre per il Ziti)

It was the great Leonardo who first invented partition functions in physics. He call-ed them Ziti functions, in honor of the delicious plate of ziti that he was eating at the time. That is why we use today the letter Z for denoting \sum_r e^{-\beta E_r}.

Check out il arXivi for my new recipe for cooking il Ziti. Molto delizioso. A recipe inspired by my own father’s recipe. Only thing I change-ed was to add the more modern quantum computer -puttanesca/gigoloesca ingredients. My famiglia compared this recipe with the following ziti recipes from other cooks (they think mine is MUCH, MUCH BETTER. That-sa why I love my famiglia).
